#5140 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

request membership inside of private group gives 404

when requesting membership out of a private group the user is sent to the 404 page, no request was sent. requesting out of the group directory works.

I didn't test 1.8 on this, maybe the issue came with this version. Of course I already deactivated all plugins and choose bp default theme. WP 3.6

It's caused by the following: in bp-groups-screens.php function groups_screen_group_request_membership() the request is done if ( isset( $_POST['group-request-send']) ). But the $_POST variable is empty because it's a pure link button. I commented out line 471 and 483 (closing of the condition) - now it works.

How exactly are you requesting membership of the private group? Can you go through step-by-step, and provide example URLs if possible?

I've just tried recreating this and wasn't able to.
