All community members added to groups as admins – need to reverse

  • justinwoodart


    Whenever I click update on a group – it gives me an error saying “you can’t remove all admins”

    It has also added every member of the site to every group automatically. As admins, moderators and members. Users who were not actual members before this error still can’t access the group and are not shown as active in the group.

    I believe learndash triggered the issue. I had the course set to open and it adds every member to the course that is in the community. I accidentally removed myself from a group that I was the only admin on it seemed to trigger some kind of role change with regards to groups.

    Can anyone please help me as to how I would attempt to figure this out. Also – as new members join groups, the old members are no longer shown in the members list. Only the new ones. And on groups with no new members, it shows a list of every member in the site. The member counter shows the correct number in the front and back end.

    If you have any ideas, or know someone that I can hire please get in touch with me ASAP! New registration opened today and I need to sort this out. Thanks!

    Deactivate the supposed culprit plugin. And go to group members admin, on dashboard. See if you can make changes.

    If not, deactivate all plugins but BP. Go to BP repair tool and try to use the one or other tool for groups. Then go to permalinks and simply save the page.

    That said, and in regard of the mentionned story, you built your issue yourself. It is not a BP issue, but a misunderstanding of how your learndash plugin works and probably some wrong settings. Read the doc before using tools you don’t know. 😉



    Same thing happened to me. Once I de-activated the ‘BuddyPress for Learndash’ plug-in, it went back to normal..but I really need to use the ‘BuddyPress for Learndash’ plugin. 🙁
