Fatal Error: Unable to create forum from buddypress group

  • prikid


    Good day!

    I’m unable to create group forum from the buddypress group admin page. Below it says “Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/stigafnx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/extend/buddypress/group.php on line 308”

    I have disabled buddypress own forum, and also choosen Group Forums Parent.

    Can you please advice?

    Thank you

    Thanks Samuel. I will see if i can fix it, don’t have good feeling about it)))

    It seems there is many people having this issue



    I have tried to fix this issue by replacing the code but no luck, it switched off whole website))

    I think we will have to wait until new version comes out…any updates on this?

    This is major issue for many, would be nice to have the whole that group.php fixed file or code, so we can replace it, otherwise just changing the code for the people not familiar with php is difficult(



    I just wanted to chime in that I am also having the same issue.

    I’ve encountered the two following errors:

    Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/cangamer/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/extend/buddypress/group.php on line 461

    Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/cangamer/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/extend/buddypress/group.php on line 308

    Can these two errors please be fixed soon?

    BTW, I’m using the FunGames template and the MyArcadePlugin Pro plugin if that helps.



    Everything was working for me but now when I logged in… same problem!



    I installed the same buyddpress and bbpress versions on another server and it works perfectly, so why doesn’t it work on another installation?



    I am having the same problem. I get this error while creating a group from website admin area. When I create group from there it takes me to the front end of website. I gives the error on “Step 3 Forum”.

    Here is my setup:

    Wordpress 3.6
    BuddyPress 1.8
    bbPress 2.3.2
    BuddyPress Docs 1.4.5
    BuddyPress Links 0.8.2
    BuddyPress Social 2.0
    BuddyPress Wall 0.8.2

    Error Source Details:
    Type Plugin
    Name bbPress
    Version 2.3.2
    Author The bbPress Community
    Path /wp-content/plugins/bbpress
    File includes/extend/buddypress/group.php

    Full Error Details
    Type Fatal Error (E_ERROR)
    Message Using $this when not in object context
    File /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/extend/buddypress/group.php
    Line 461
    Type Description This type of error indicates that PHP cannot continue to run the code. Typical causes of this type of error are code bugs that have typos, missing or incomplete files (such as a file that was only partially uploaded), and the code using more memory than it is allowed.



    Copying the RAW Paste data worked for me:
    1. Rename existing group.php file located here as group.php.old:

    2. Open notepad and paste the code located here:
    3. Save the file and upload it to the directory above.

    I’m now able to create groups. Hopefully things stay inline during the next BP or bpPress update.

    For reference and closure; this issue was a BP one and has been resolved in this ticket:
    and will be included in the recently released BP 1.8.1



    Looks good with the new update!



    Latest BuddyPress update 1.8.1 has this issue fixed !

    Cheers, PC



    I don’t think this challenge is related to bbpress, this is apparently a buddpress problem



    I have also encountered same problem and i am unable to resolve this error problem.
