1.8 Beta 5 creates duplicate groups in backend

10 years 7 months ago #115353 by mcbsys

My first GroupJive install was 1.8 Beta 4 with CB 1.2.1 and Kunena 1.5.6.

I upgraded to Beta 5 so the groups that I create in the back end would have forums created as well. I did an uninstall/reinstall to accomplish the upgrade.

However, now when I create a group in the backend, I get TWO identical groups and no Kunena forum.

Here is a screen shot showing the group I'm creating:

When I create a group from the frontend (logged on as Super Admin), I only get one group, but still no forum.

It's been a few weeks but I did get a forum before when I created a group from the frontend.

Sorry that should have been in the Potential Bugs forum. I've created a ticket:

Is the CB GroupJive B5 plugin installed and published? This plugin is required for forum integration to function.

Yes, the B5 plugin is installed and published. It probably wasn't published the first time I tried this, but it is now, and the Groups tab is shown in profiles. Still I get the duplicate groups and no forums.

But wait! I just noticed that the upgrade cleared two important GroupJive settings: ShowForum was set back to No and Parent Group was set to 0. After setting those to Yes and 5 respectively, BOTH problems are resolved: only one group is created and the forum is also created.

So I guess the bug is that when forum integration is turned off, duplicate groups are created.
