    Hi,

    I am still testing your plugin in my site and I juts noticed that when a user with profile set to be visible for friends only and not visible in member directory and search sends a group join request to the group administrator the request does not show up on the group admins requests screen. The group admin gets a notification about a request but when he clicks on the notification nothing shows up. The group requests screen is empty. Thus, there seems to be no way a user with “hidden” profile is able to request to join a group. The admin is simply not able to approve the request. Could you please check on your install whether you have the same problem and check how to fix this?

    I have latest wordpress/buddypress plus a custom theme (Boss theme).
    Thanks!

    Hi Bjoern,
    It is happening. There are two possible solutions:-

    1. disallow users whose privacy is not public/logged in to use any such button
    2. Or override the visibility on the group requests page to make it visible.

    I am more interested in first approach. What do you suggest?

    Can you please upgrade to 1.3.4 and test. I have disabled the button for any members whose profile visibility is set to friends only/private.

    As said on the other thread, I think option 2 would be better. It just needs to show the request/user, the profile itself could still be “hidden”…
