Group Membership Request Woes

  • bmcconach


    Howdy, BuddyPress friends!

    I have been working on a project for fun and have been enjoying the laying out of items and adding plugin functionality a bit much here lately. So much so, in fact, that I put the testing phase on the back shelf for a bit.

    When I was attempting to request membership from a test account to a private group that my admin account was the creator of, I ran into an issue: I can get to the request page (/groups/test-group/request-membership/?_wpnonce=47febc75fe) by clicking the link to do so and then am presented with a textarea for request comments, however when I submit the form (with or without comments) I am taken back to the group’s main page (/groups/test-group/) and am presented with “There was an error sending your group membership request. Please try again.” The request does not come through (not in BP’s notifications, e-mail, pending requests, etc.) at all.

    At first this was a minor irritation because I could go to the group as the admin and invite the test account to join the group. There I am presented with a checkbox for my test account’s name, as well as a submit button; however when clicking on the checkbox, the form instantly submits without ever sending an invite. I even attempted to modify the live source to set the field to checked, attempted to submit, and received a success message stating my invite was sent, but of course it never was.

    I have checked the list of plugins I have on my site, disabled a few I didn’t necessarily need, and have checked each of the remaining to see if there’s any sort of conflict between plugins affecting groups, but to no avail. This functionality is key to the use of groups for my project, so I would sincerely appreciate any advice from more knowledgeable members of the BP community.

    Some support information, including a list of active plugins, can be found below. Please note that any plugin with ** beside it came bundled with the theme.

    Anyone have a moment to lend a set of eyes on this issue? If a test account is needed to replicate, I can provide the credentials.



    Could it be the MU-plugin “rms_unique_wp_mu_pl_fl_nm.php” no author, no version… Seems like something that was installed without you knowing it (maybe sneeked in when trying a plugin from non wordpress site)
    Looking at the plugin, seems to open a remote login to your site…
