#1782 closed bug (fixed)

Joining group fails with just one generic error message

Reported by: jsfan Owned by: Tsjoek
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.1
Component: BW Group Keywords:
Cc: planetcruiser



  • If joining a group fails because the member already have an affiliation with the group (member, waiting for approval or banned), only one generic error message is displayed (based on a boolean return value)


  • There is no easy way to solve this other than duplication checks or having a generic error message that includes all possibilities.

Maybe another possibility would be not to render the join form again if there is already a pending request.

  • Milestone changed from unassigned to 2.1
  • Owner set to Tsjoek
  • Status changed from new to assigned

  • Status changed from assigned to local_testing

used the suggestion from comment 1 for banned and waiting users, seemed also more friendly to me than a flashing red error message. If you are already a member the button becomes a leave button instead so no problem there. You still get the error if you join a second time by manipulating the url, which is just fine.

Added wordcodes: GroupsBanned, GroupsAlreadyApplied
