Hidden groups not visible to members under “My groups”

  • Bodhipaksa


    The title is essentially it. If I have a hidden group (which I prefer so that people can’t request access to it) then members of that group do not see it listed under “My Groups.” The group is, however, counted in the number badge on the “My Groups” tab.

    There doesn’t seem to be any good reason why hidden groups should be hidden from the group members. Is that an anomaly? Is there some way to fix it?

    Using WP 5.2.1, Buddypress 4.3.0, bbPress 2.5.14.
    Theme is Twenty Sixteen, Version 2.0.

    Last time I had this it was caused by CSS from another plugin. The hidden groups have a class of hidden, in my case the plugin was set to hide all elements with a class of hidden.



    Thanks for that. I’ll look into that possibility.



    Hello, I’m currently using bbpress 2.6.6 and buddypress 7.1.0, (wordpress 5.6, php 7.4.12, theme is siteorigin-unwind 1.6.12), and experiencing this problem as mentioned here, (members of hidden groups not being able to see the topics of the sub-forum). I’m a newbie with the background code, though my private and public groups are working. I can see the fix for ticket 7443 in buddypress.js that was indicated then, and believe I’ve implemented it, but am wondering if other people still have a problem with this, and if so if there is another fix/workaround available. Thank you.
