#5105 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Group Admin UI Bulk Deleting groups just refresh group list

Reported by: imath Owned by: r-a-y
Milestone: 1.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.7
Component: Component - Groups Keywords: has-patch



I'm really sorry i haven't noticed this before 1.8 release :(

When on Group Admin UI, if you select 1 or more group and try to bulk delete it/them, it only refreshes the group list.

The first problem is that the name of the checkbox is aid[], the second problem is that the action is not set to delete once in the function bp_groups_admin().

I sugget the diff attached to this ticket as it seems to restore the bulk delete process.

Same here. Can delete groups individually but bulk delete is not working for single WP site nor for WP multisite install in wp-admin Group Admin UI. Just tested this when someone reported the issue in the BP forums.

In 7360:

In the groups dashboard, fix bulk deletion. Fixes #5105.

  • Use bp_admin_list_table_current_bulk_action() to reconcile what the proper action is when doing a bulk action like deleting.
  • Fix copypasta from activity admin dashboard to use group IDs.

Props imath.

I don´t know if it was fixed, but with WordPress Multisite 3.6.1 + BuddyPress 1.8.1 it happens again (I don't tested with WordPress, only with Multisite)

If you want to do a Bulk group deletion, the group screen is refreshed without remove the groups.

I dont know if I had to open a new ticked, but @boonebgorges tell me that ping the ticket.

Hi again,

After some testing, I think there is more to fix.

If I change from show 20 groups to 200 (ex.) at Groups admin screen, I can see the latest 200 created groups.

If a select all groups (200 groups) and I want to delete them with the bulk action, are only deleted the first 20 groups, so the Bulk action is not sending all groups.

Tested with the latest trunk version.

thank you for working on this .... any idea on when it could be fixed?

i'm trying to delete over 30,000 spam groups from a live site so really could use this unless there is a mysql alternative process ?
