When I then delete both groups and create them again the issue occures again.

To clarify, Group A and Group B are both linked to Group Forum B. Group B was created after Group A.

Replying to boonebgorges:

Can you please give clearer instructions to reproduce? A list of specific actions to be taken, in the correct order.

I installed a fresh WordPress 3.5.1 (finnish) with BuddyPress 1.7 beta 1 and bbPress 2.3 beta 2. I enabled BuddyPress and all the components and switched the site theme to BuddyPress Default. Then I enabled bbPress, created two forum categories and set one of them as the "Group Forums Parent". With that setup I just need to create BuddyPress groups that have bbPress forums enabled. The forums get mixed up as can be seen in the screenshot.

If it helps, I also encountered a different issue with this setup earlier: When I created a group with a forum, the forum would display the message "This forum is empty." and not allow me to post anything when I clearly had the rights to post there.

Tried again with the stable bbPress 2.2.4 instead and got it workin fine. What does that mean for this ticket?

Try upgrading to bbPress 2.3-bleeding:

Click on the "Zip Archive" link at the bottom of the page.

I believe it's fixed in the latest revisions.

Excellent, seems to work fine! Should this be marked as "invalid" or "wontfix"?

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

I've marked it as invalid.

Thanks for testing, Ruuttu.
