Group Settings Not Working + BuddyPress timestamp 8 hours off

  • surfergirl92024


    WordPress 3.5.1.
    BuddyPressVersion 1.6.1

    I am having some issues with my BuddyPress Groups:

    -Groups created as “Private” actually are not private, but public.
    -On the Groups Listing page it says that the Groups are private, public or hidden. But when you click on a Private (or even Hidden) Group page, it says “Public Group” “active 8 hours, 25 minutes ago” (even if I just created the group minutes ago). Below that it says “Private Group” and then “Request Membership” but further down on the page I can see all of the Group activity.
    -Hidden Groups are hidden, so I am not concerned with these.
    -As mentioned above, the timestamp on all BuddyPress activity throughout my site is 8 hours behind.

    I have found some topics similar to this, but no clear answers as to why this would be happening. Are there any suggestions for fixing this problem?

    Thank you!!

    Re private vs. public groups:
    You are the admin for the site, yes?
    Then you can see everything regardless of the setting.
    Create a non-admin account or log-out – can you still see private groups?

    Re timestamp:
    In wp-admin, settings, general – have you adjusted the ‘local’ time option ?



    Yes I am the admin, but have two separate “test” accounts at Level-1 and Level-2 memberships – this is where I can tell the Groups are not private (I even logged in on a different computer).

    Yes, under settings, general – the local time option has been selected for “Los Angeles” where I’m located.



    As a non-logged-in user, the private groups are private.
    Perhaps somebody else will have a suggestion.

    Re time – what time is your server set to ?
    Use the php date() function to check it.
    You may have to change the server time setting.
    If your server uses PHP 5.1+, you may be able to use
    the php date_default_timezone_set() function



    Thanks for your help!
