bbpress shortcode not compatible with Hidden & Private Group Forums
I’ve found recently that using the bbpress shortcode for embedding a single forum ([bbp-single-forum id=$forum_id]) works find if you have a Group with a Public Forum.
However if you have the Forum set to Hidden the shortcode simply doesn’t render anything.
And if you have the Forum set to Private the shortcode renders but the Topics list doesn’t get added instead it displays the no topics message but you can clearly see above in the activity notice that there’s been several topics created.
To work around this limitation I’ve simply made all the forums public, placed into a Forum Group that’s hidden. And made their Groups Private so that the forums are still hidden from the world and only accessible through the group and the page I’ve embedded on it.
Wanted to raise to see if there was a better approach or if this was an issue with the BBPress and Buddypress integration.
