Orphaned, invisible user remains in group if their ID is changed

Reported by: squarestar Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Groups Keywords:


When using iThemes Security's feature of giving the default admin user a new ID *after* setting up BuddyPress groups, the original user ID (1) will remain registered in groups, though no user will be displayed in the group anywhere (not even in the admin backend). The user ID *will* be present in the result of BP_Groups_Member::get_group_member_ids(), however, which leads to errors.

This does not get fixed by updating the group afterwards.

Thanks for the report, @squarestar, but I don't see how this is a BuddyPress issue.

You used a third-party plugin to change the user ID of the default user. BuddyPress does not know that you changed this user so it cannot react to those changes.

You'll have to create and run a script to fix the ID issues that you are experiencing.
