#8272 new defect (bug)

Private groups not available in group block

Reported by: iamthewebb Owned by:
Milestone: 7.0.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: (not sure) Keywords: dev-feedback


I created an empty WP site with only v6.0.0 of BP installed. I created one of each group type.
The public group can be selected in the new Group Blocks but both Private and Hidden groups do not appear to be selected.

Description of Private groups

Only people who request membership and are accepted can join the group.
This group will be listed in the groups directory and in search results.
Group content and activity will only be visible to members of the group.

I don't think this would be circumvented by having the Private groups available for selection?

Hi @iamthewebb

Thanks for your feedback. It's a deliberate choice I've made. To me featuring a private group into a Post or a Page doesn't seem to be a great experience for the site's visitors. Once they click on the Group's link, they can't see more than what's into the BP Group Block.

But, I'm very open to change this if other members of the team think it's a better idea to also include private groups.

I believe we're running out of time about this ticket for 6.0.0. Let's work on it during next development cycle.
