Hi Ray,

I edited the description on a private (not hidden) group and wanted to see what it would look like to non-members of that group.

When I visited the group homepage as a non-logged in user, I received a log-in page -

Is this expected behavior? And has this changed at all recently I had thought it would show a group description (but not group files/forum etc) rather than a log in page

This is not expected behavior.

This is due to CBOX modifying the group homepage to use the forum page. However, since non-logged-in users cannot access the private group forum, BP is asking users to login to access the group forum.

What we should be doing is modifying private groups to use the group default homepage instead of the forum for non-logged-in users.

Will fix this for CBOX.

Excellent -- thanks, Ray. I guess a short-term fix on the NYCDH site would be for me to restore the default homepage

Confirming that the short-term fix worked

I've added a fix for this on the CBOX repo.
