Unable to post reply on existing forum thread
Hiya, sorry to be such a bug, but I'm trying to post a reply to a forum thread in the CGF Planning group, which is a hidden group, and when I hit the submit button it just loads the forum activity page rather than the thread I'm posting to, and the new post doesn't go through. I was just able to create two new threads just fine, this is only happening when I reply to a currently existing thread (in this case, the Deadlines thread).

Thanks for the report, Maura. We ran into this same issue on OpenLab. I've ported the fix from there in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/db6cc8978b50e70f06641f1c98e63acfcc01a4a0. This fix has been deployed as a hotfix, and it appears that things are working correctly now.
Ray, I'm adding you as a watcher just so you're aware. This appears to be tied to bbPress's vexing Participant role behavior. There may be a better workaround than what I've done here (aside from using the equally awful auto-role functionality) - I'm open to suggestions.

cdev had auto-role turned on, which is probably why none of us were able to duplicate this problem until now. (FYI, bbPress defaults auto-role to on.)
I guess in our case, since we don't use auto-role, we have to manually add the forum posting caps. Good catch, Boone! Sounds like your hotfix would make a good enhancement for BP groups in bbPress:
Add in your lines if auto-role is turned off. Will create a ticket for bbPress after I've done some further testing.
