#5726 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

When editing a topic I can select a forum from a private group I'm not part of

When editing a topic I can see an input to select a new forum to move the topic to

The issue is that in the list of forums to pick I can see forums belonging to private groups I’m not part of

If I select one of those and submit the post gets moved there correctly and I get redirected to the group->forum page where I correctly see a notice stating I can't see the message

I think I shouldn’t see those forums in the first place

Thanks for the report, gcmo. This functionality is provided by bbPress itself, so their Trac is the best place to report the issue: Feel free to link back to this ticket when you do.

Thanks Boone for the feedback

Actually I realised just now it might be a misalignment between bbPress and BuddyPress visibility system

Private forum in bbPress means: visibile only to logged in users
Private group in BuddyPress means: visible only to group members

Should I still post it over there anyway?

Good point, gcmo. In this case, I think it's still a bbPress issue, because bbPress should be taking care of the proper translation of the 'privacy' issue, at least as far as the BuddyPress integration is concerned. Thanks.
