#6437 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Allow user with bp_moderate cap to view hidden groups of user

Reported by: lenasterg's profile lenasterg Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Administration Keywords: needs-unit-tests, needs-patch, trac-tidy-2018


Right now only the logged in user can fetch his/her hidden groups.
Attached is the suggested patch so that also the user with bp_moderate capability can fetch them.

The reason/logic behind the suggested patch is:
If the user with bp_moderate capability is also allowed to fetch hidden groups of a user, we (or a plugin developer) can use it to add relevant metaboxes to the user extended profile in /wp-admin/network/users.php?page=bp-profile-edit, such as (All the user's groups, Groups in which the user is admin or moderator). This would give the super admin a more complete view for the user's profile.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
