Good Day,

I would to report a bug that we can replicate on our staging website. To reproduce it, kindly do these steps:

  1. Create a Private Group, and then send an invitation to your friend
  2. Login with an account where the invitation sent
  3. Go to the Groups Directory page
  4. Click the "Accept Invitation" button

And you will see this error:

This error happens both with legacy and Nouveau themes.

Thank you for your time, and please let me know if you already released a patch to fix this.

Best Regards,

Hi @kainelabsteam

Thanks a lot for your report. I confirm the issue. Accepting an invite from the user's groups invitations screen works as expected, but doing so from the Groups directory is not.

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed

Unless an Administrator is viewing another member's group invitations screen, the right user ID to use is the logged in user ID.

Your fix looks good to me! I agree that it should nearly always be the logged-in user's ID, with the very unusual exception that an admin is helping another user accept an invite, which you've covered.

BP Nouveau: use the right user ID to accept a group invite

The displayed user ID should only be used when an administrator is viewing a user profile. In all other contexts, the logged in user ID needs to be used. This change is fixing the issue when accepting such an invite from the groups directory.

Props kainelabsteam, dcavins
