Redirect Loop when Trying To access A Private Group (using Suffusion)

  • Calvin Powers



    I am running a sanbox install of WP and BP, both latest versions. I’m using the Suffusion theme and the minima skin. I ran into a situation where I get an infinite redirect loop.

    In my sandbox I have a user “charile” and a public group “X”. Charlie joined the public group and was in it for a while. Then I changed group X to be a private group. I had charlie leave the group and verified that no group X activity appears in his streams. So far so good.

    Now Charlie goes to the group directory at /groups. He sees group X in the list because it is a private group. He sees the “request to join” button. But does not click it. The group name X is a hyper link. For people who are in the group, the link will take them to the group’s home page. But when Charlie clicks the link, the browser hangs for a while and then gives an error message about multiple redirects.

    If a site visitor (not registered or logged in) goes the the /groups page and clicks the name of group X, it redirects him back to the home page. But when Charlie logs in and clicks it, he gets the infinite redirect problem.

    Not sure if this as anything to do with the fact that Charlie used to be a member of the group but left. Or if maybe there’s something wrong with the suffusion buddy pack. Also I have several plugins installed that add to the groups (BP Documents, U BuddyPress Editor, Events Manager, Photo Album, etc.)

    This is not an end-of-the-world problem, But I figured I’d report it in case anyone has seen any similar issues.

    I’m going to regenerate the BP Pack files and see if that helps. But I’m a little concerned they will blow away changes made by the other plugins. But we’ll see.
