Missing SOME group buttons

  • jannmirch


    I just noticed this very odd issue on this page:

    We are trying to set up Restricted Communities whereby the Groups are private but allow users to request membership via the buttons. Some of the groups have the buttons but two, including the new “Testing IEP” do not.

    I’ve tested with Twenty Sixteen and the issue remains. I have turned off/turned back on all the plugins without any luck.

    We are using WP 5.1.1, BuddyPress 4.2.0, bbPress 2.5.14.

    What am I missing?!

    We aren’t logged in, so we cannot see or not see, the buttons.

    If you created the group – you will not see the button because you are already a member.

    Trying logging in as a Subscriber who does not belong to any groups and check for the buttons.

    To rule out a theme issue, try switching momentarily to a WP theme like 2019 and check for the buttons.



    Thanks for the reply. As I mentioned, I tested with another theme already so that was not the issue. I also had a couple of browsers open; one I was logged into and one I was not.

    For whatever reason, it does seem to be showing all the buttons properly now.

    Of note, in Chrome where I am logged in as an Admin, I can see variously:

    • Request Sent
    • Request Membership
    • Leave Group
    • Request Membership
    • Request Membership

    So it does seem to be showing the buttons for each of my 5 groups.
