Reopening #4706: Infinite Redirect Loop when BP_GROUPS_DEFAULT_EXTENSION is changed on Private groups

Reported by: pareshradadiya Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Contributions Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.9.2
Component: Groups Keywords: needs-patch reporter-feedback


I have set group default extension to a Members tab for a group and there is now redirect loop when non group member try to access the private group.

While redirecting away from a private group, BuddyPress doesn't appending 'home/' to the redirect URL any longer.

Please provide instructions how exactly to configure the group extension like this, so we can test it.

To reproduce, please do the following

  1. Add this constant define( 'BP_GROUPS_DEFAULT_EXTENSION', 'members' ); in wp-config.php
  2. Login as Subscriber user
  3. Navigate to Groups directory
  4. Browse private in which current logged in user is not a member

The issue is, thats there is redirect loop.

BuddyPress try to load default extension Members and since the group is private and current logged in user is not a member of that group, user will be threw back to a group default page(home) which is Members extension in this case and this goes in loop.

Please see this screencast:

The redirect is being triggered on (that branch of that conditional). $subnav_item item there is:

array(11) {
  string(7) "members"
  string(2) "t3"
  string(30) "http://bpcore.local/groups/t3/"
  &string(27) "groups_screen_group_members"
  string(22) "Members 1"
  string(30) "http://bpcore.local/groups/t3/"
  string(7) "members"

...which is the navigation item set here: ("Only add the members subnav if it's not the home's nav.") -- that makes sense, but I'm lost trying to understand what should be happening where...

It's something to do with the user not allowed to read a Private group's "members" page, but I'm not sure where the redirect should be fixed or how.
