Problem is fixed in new version commons 7.x-3.3-rc4 https://drupal.org/node/2067473


  1. Organic groups 7.x.2.3

  2. Organic groups access control 7.x.2.3

The content access permissions have been rebuilt.

In OG field settings (as default) User-User entity Group visibility Determine access to the group Group Determine if this should be a group

I created a Private group with "Joining requires an invitation" trying to add a post to the group I get following exception:

OgException: Cannot set visibility of node ID 13 as the group node of type "user" does not have the "Group visibility" field attached to it. in _og_access_verify_access_field_existence() (line 250 of srv/www/htdocs/commons7x33rc2/profiles/commons/modules/contrib/og/og_access/og_access.module).

The same happens with a Public group with "Any site member can contribute"

What is wrong and how do I fix this?

A bit too late maybe but...

...check answer #8 at Organic Groups issues place: https://drupal.org/node/2063479#comment-7882345

I've followed it and solved (at least apparently) the issue.

Hope it helps. Have a nice day! hip
