Topic Creation Bug

There seems to be a bug with topic creation under groups which are set as private. This happens when a subscriber tries to add a topic to the group forum. The error is "There was an error when creating the topic". I went through the support side and other forums but couldn't find a solution to it. I am running the latest version of BuddyPress(1.5.5) and unable to launch my website for this reason

This site is used to track bugs and development for the core BuddyPress software. For help and support, please post on the support forums at

I'm pretty sure that if you've completed the Group Forums setup in the wp-admin BuddyPress menu, edit the individual group's Settings and disable forum (then save) then re-enable the forum (then save), and it usually fixes the problem. When you create a message on the support forums, we can investigate further with you.
