Group / Blog user role syncing not working
Hi Boone --
We received the following report:
I'm trying to have members of a commons group (https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/digital-praxis-seminar-2017-2018/) be automatically added as authors of a site (https://dhpraxis17.commons.gc.cuny.edu/). So far it isn't working. I can add them manually, but wanted to let you know that something might be broken.
Invite anyone was also acting a bit strange--it took it a long time load the "you have already sent invitations to these members" list so it wasn't clear whether the invites were sending. (But it worked!)
Thanks for your time!
I checked on the group and site. While I do think she needs to click "Enable Member Posting" in the group, that doesn't explain why group members haven't been added as subscribers to the blog. Please see attached screenshots showing the group management screen and the blog dashboard

- Tracker changed from Bug to Support
- Status changed from Assigned to Reporter Feedback
In order for group membership to be synced to the group's blog, the "Enable Member Posting" checkbox must be checked. Perhaps this wording needs rethinking.
It sounds to me like there is no bug here.

I changed the default in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/75538ab9c540009d60f4cc6fbe53c6775f94fbdb so that 'Enable Member Posting' is checked when creating a group.
