Hi Ray --

I was set to launch the NYCDH site today and made an announcement to that effect on the NYCDH steering group forum -

However, I notice the following problems:

1. The announcement shows up in the group activity feed -

2. No email notification was sent after the creation of the forum post

3. The post (which was in a private group) doesn't show up on the sitewide activity feed - - (I think it should, right, since I'm a superadmin?)

4. In the sidebar of the sitewide activity page, the Steering group is shown as being last active 5 days ago -

Hiving this a high priority due to our impending launch.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Matt,

2) I don't think you get email notifications of your own posts

3) Private group items only show up in the group activity feed even if you're a super admin.

4) Creating a new bbPress forum post in a group does not update the group's last activity time. A patch will need to be added to bbPress to address this.

Let me know if you have any questions about these items.

Thanks, Ray, I appreciate it. I discovered today that there is actually an option to be notified of one's one's forum posts, accessible through user profile settings > forum > notifications
