    Not a problem, just an observation. There is no link to your saved, favorited forum threads. Did these get copied over or is that concept now moot. I use saved threads quite extensively. I save notable support threads so that I can quickly find a forum resource and provide a link to someone who has asked the same or similar question. It beats search.

    Thanks, please post anything you see that is broken in here, no matter how small. I’m aware of a whole bunch of little things that don’t work right now, so I’ll do a sweep later on.

    Jeff – this will be added tomorrow, not quite done.

    On forums root, every other group is assigning all tr’s as “alt” resulting in it showing up as all white instead of grey / white.

    Groups pagination – navigating to the last page on https://buddypress.org/community/groups/ brings up a “no groups found reason.” This is a BP bug as it occurs on testbp.org, jjj says there is a trac ticket somewhere.

    Members Directory. If you sort by “newest registered”, and thus get the most recent spam signups. Not only does it take a long time to load due to number of users on this site (30+ seconds), but as those spammers don’t have a name, the floats aren’t appearing to be cleared correctly.

    When you’re on a group page, I think it’s not clear you have to re-click the ‘group’ link at the top to go back to groups’ frontpage since it’s already highlighted/bold. Maybe a breadcrumb will help? Like Groups -> Groupname

    Some groups aren’t displaying join links when you are within the group.

    https://buddypress.org/community/groups/buddypress-sitewide-activity-widget/ — I see a join button.
    https://buddypress.org/community/groups/gallery/ — I don’t.

    @ in usernames causing redirect problems.

    See https://buddypress.org/community/members/antonrsa@opencircle.co.za/ — follow that member, and watch the URL.

    Forum Posts statistic on a member’s profile page isn’t accurate.

    From JJJ:

    The template for the indivudal activity items redirects also.

    How would this new forum format work if there were dozens, if not hundreds of groups?

    Plugin meta information not parsing properly.

    For example, http://svn.wp-plugins.org/welcome-pack/trunk/readme.txt:
    “Requires at least: WP/MU 2.9, BuddyPress 1.2.3
    Tested up to: WP/MU 2.9, BuddyPress 1.2.3″

    It looks like this on the group page: http://tweetphoto.com/19766321

    Suggestion: Eliminate Automatic Joining of Public Groups

    I’ve got a problem with having to join Groups to participate in the Forums for two reasons:

    1. The prospect of having to join a Group is not intuitive and will intimidate users, preventing them from participating. What does it mean to join a group? Will they now be subject to group emails? Or other solicitations from within the group? There is no practical reason for this barrier to exist.

    2. Groups should serve a social purpose (common interests, common goals, etc.) and joining one should MEAN something. Looking at my profile and seeing that I’m in 5 groups should tell a visitor a lot about who I am. However, in this format, I’ll end up being members of dozens of groups, when all I really want is to add to those forum discussions. In this format, the value of being in a Group is cheapened. And, there could be a couple of groups on a site that a member really wants to participate and follow, but now their activity stream is cluttered with activity from all these discussions. From a user’s perspective, these are 2 different things.

    Maybe have a checkbox below your forum entry asking: “Join the __________ Group?” or “Request to Join the ______________ Group?”
