#4976 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Discussions in private group forum appear in the activity stream

All of my private group forum discussions (topics/replies) are appearing in the activity stream.

After I post a new forum topic in a private group, then check the database (bp_activity table), I notice that its hide_sitewide is set to 0 (which is not hidden in the activity stream).

All new topics and replies automatically default to hide_sitewide=0, regardless of whether the group forum is private or public. This only started happening 2-3 weeks ago. Only friendship_create defaults to hide_sitewide=1.

I am using the latest bbPress 2.3.1, BuddyPress 1.7.1

What I've tried so far:

  • Deactivated all plugins except for BuddyPress and bbPress (to confirm it's not an odd plugin problem)
  • Revert back to default BuddyPress theme (to confirm it's not a functions.php problem)
  • Reverted back to BuddyPress 1.6.5
  • Reverted back to bbPress 2.2.4 and sitewide forums
  • Reset the groups back to public, then setting them as private
  • Repaired all the forums (Tools > Forums > Repair Forums)

Thanks very much for the detailed bug report and steps to reproduce.

I've managed to confirm the behavior you've described. I dug into it a bit, and it's fairly clear that this is a bbPress issue. I've opened a ticket on their tracker and I'm going to close this one in favor of that one. Please feel free to add yourself as a watcher over there, and thanks again for reporting this issue so thoroughly.

Thanks for that @boonebgorges, I will follow its progress on the bbPress trac
