Possible minor bug (Posting to Wire as Admin of Group I Haven't Joined)

  • stwc


    WPMU 2.84, BP 1.1.2, subdir install upgraded with no issues from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 using autoupdater.

    This seems like a bug and a fairly minor one, but just checking. If I’m logged in as admin, viewing a group that I don’t belong to, the Wire message box appears in that group for me, and I can type something in and hit submit, but nothing happens. No warning, and nothing appears on the Group’s wire.

    If I join the Group, the Wire message appears as expected.

    Preferred behaviour, I guess, would be to either hide the Wire message box and instead show a warning that I can’t post to the Wire unless I join the group (if that’s the intended functionality — I’m not 100% sure, which is why I’m asking here).

    Added this to the trac for you as it’s a confirmed bug. I spent a few minutes wrestling with it and found that the posting mechanism is tied to the check_is_member function, even though is_site_admin is used to make the post-form visible.

    A quick fix would be to hide the post-form even for site admins, but I’d rather rebuild the access check to allow admins + group members to post on the group wire.



    Thanks for the confirmation!
