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 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.

Terrific, thanks Boone, it's working fine now.

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.
