Bug Description

1.10RC1

When you become a member of a group, you receive a notification for having access to "Group homepage". This should not happen.

If a user is to be notified of having access to a group, it should be something like 'You are now a member of the group "XYZ".' but not for having access to the group homepage. The group homepage is essentially the group itself.

Hi Kristina,

How can you enable an user to be notified of having access to a group?

Thanks

Normally, people are not notified when they join a group or are added to it. However, they can receive a notification. While testing the RC, I did get a notification for having access to the group homepage and thus I had created this bug report.

Please be a bit more specific if that doesn't answer your questions.

To test:

1. Pull master code (I used Mahara version 1.11.0dev (2014092500))
2. Log in as admin.
3. Set up a group. I had chosen an open group with no other special settings, but made sure that all members of the group would be notified of shared pages.
4. Save the group settings.
5. You will get a notification about access to the group homepage. You may need to run the cron manually if it is not running automatically. Otherwise, the notification will not be sent.

Apply the patch and follow the instructions again. You don't get the notification about the group homepage anymore.

Before Patch admin was receiving a notification on gaining access to "Group homepage". After patch there was no notification. Below are my steps:

1. Pull master code ( I also used Mahara version 1.11.0dev ( 2014092500))
2. Logged in as admin.
3. Created an Open group called: "Testing Bug". With all default setting, so no changes made
4. Save the group settings.
5. Run Cron manually
5. And I also received the email:
  "subject: New access to page "Group homepage"
 You have been added to the access list for the page "Group homepage" by Testing
 bug"
