My buddy press group counter says there are 5 groups (and there are) but it is showing me only 4 groups (even though I am the admin). 3 of the groups are public and one is private. What do I need to do to fix the group counter?

    Hey there @Frank

    Welcome to WPMU DEV, glad to have you aboard!

    Yup, that can happen when setting things up while logging in as different users to play around. :slight_smile:

    Actually, the only way that can happen is if a group is set to hidden by the group admin. The group counter will display the correct count to regular users (a count that does not include the hidden groups), but it will display the total count to the site admin or super-admin, including the count of hidden groups.

    To fix that, go to the Groups screen in your wp-admin (or wp-admin/network if you've network-activated BuddyPress). You'll see a Status column in the group list. Find any groups that are set to Hidden and, if you want to change that, click the group name or the Edit action link to get to the screen where you can edit that.

    I hope this helps, and thanks for being a member!
