Eportfolio group blog
Gina Rae Foster (http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/members/ginaraefoster/), one of the members of the Eportfolios group is not able to post to the group blog even though I see her listed as a blog administrator when I'm logged into the dashboard. I can also see here name listed under the blog authors when I go to the blog: http://eportfolios.commons.gc.cuny.edu/.
I'm not sure if Barbara Walters (who is the group admin) enabled the group blog or just added members in the dashboard, but Gina is unable to access the dashboard and/or posts. There are no blogs associated with her profile and she told me that only thing she has under "My Blogs" is "create a blog". I'm not sure what's at the root of this problem, but she has been "alternating between a Mac Leopard on a MacBookPro and MS2007 on a Lenovo tablet, using Firefox on both." Please let me know if you need additional information and I will be happy to reach out to Gina.

- Target version set to 1.1.1
This suggests that BuddyPress (which is responsible for maintaining the My Blogs dropdown and profile page) didn't properly run the blog refresh script when the Gina was added. I will do that when 1.1.1 is released in a few days.
I would be curious to know, however, whether this is an isolated incident or whether there is some systematic problem here. I noticed that the ePortfolios blog is not set up to add users automatically as authors, which suggests that Barbara does it manually. I ran a few tests on my local installation, and I wasn't able to reproduce the issue when adding users to blogs in this way. Perhaps you could ask her how she did it?

- Status changed from Assigned to Hold
I added a fix in https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/59598ead757bceaee0ad14fad557d998da6ac7f1, which I'll run after the 1.1.1 release.
