[Resolved] Change JS behavior for request-membership group action button

  • I’d like to disable the AJAX request for the “request membership” action button in the group directory. At the moment, the same function in buddypress.js catches all group action buttons: join group, leave group and request membership. If, within this function,

    jq('#groups-dir-list').on('click', '.group-button a', function() {…

    I add

    		if ( thelink.hasClass( 'request-membership' ) ) {
    			return true;

    I get the result I want (send the user to the request membership form within the group), but I’m not sure how to do that without altering the core js file.

    I could also remove the class “group-button” in the case of request membership so that the AJAX function wouldn’t catch it. Anyone have a best practices approach for this kind of problem?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

  • I solved this by adding the following filter. It removes “group-button” from the button wrapper (only on request membership buttons) so that buddypress.js will ignore the click.

    add_filter( 'bp_get_group_join_button','request_membership_redirect' );
    	 * Change group "Request membership" button behavior-- always redirect to request membership pane, no AJAX requests.
    	public function request_membership_redirect( $button ) {
    		// To prevent buddypress.js from acting on the request membership button click, we'll need to remove the class .group-button from the button wrapper. See buddypress.js line 1252.
    		if ( $button[ 'id' ] == 'request_membership' )
    			$button[ 'wrapper_class' ] = str_replace( 'group-button', '', $button[ 'wrapper_class' ] );
    		return $button;
