Group Forum Creation makes all non-group forums invisible to non-admins

  • kingstringy


    I have a site that is experiencing a glitch or misconfiguration with bbPress Buddypress Group Forums.

    When a group with a forum is created, all forum topics go invisible on frontend for non-admin users.

    • All the forums are Private. Setting a forum to public, saving, then private and saving again fixes issue. This has to be done on the main edit screen for each forum — quick edit and bulk edit don’t fix the problem.
    • Not sure if it matters but fixing parent forum doesn’t fix child forums
    • new topics created in group forums are immediately visible
    • new topics created frontend or backend in existing non-group forums are not visible (though the topic count updates to reflect the new topic)
    • topics created in forums created after glitch are immediately visible
    • On the current live site, the Group Forums Parent is set to root (which I know is not recommended), but on the test site I’ve changed it to a forum called “Group Forums”. It doesn’t seem to have made a difference.

    The only active plugins on the test site are bbPress and Buddypress right now, and the theme is twentyseventeen.

    I have experienced this glitch with both a clone of the existing live site and a fresh WordPress install with no imported content.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Wordpress 4.9.6
    Buddypress 3.1
    bbPress 2.5.14
