@Mentions in Private Groups for non members

  • timeuser


    When a users is @mentioned in a private group they are not a member of, BuddyPress is still sending them an email notification that they were mentioned that includes the content of the post. Also, users can see private group posts they were @mentioned in on the Activity directory Mentions stream even for groups they aren’t members of. These seem like significant holes in the “privacy” of Private Groups.

    I have the same problem. I am very interested in options for how to address this issue. A related problem is that posts in private groups show up the activity streams for the person in question and are indexed for the entire web to see.

    I don’t remember how I did it, but I had to edit out the entire activity stream section in profiles to avoid the problem. Unfortunately, it is not possible to disable the activity stream module, since it is used by notifications.
