      Description

      In a course go to Participants -> Course blogs. It should take you to a URL like blog/index.php?courseid=2 where you can see the course blogs.

      If you have groups enabled, Participants -> Course blogs will still take you to a URL like blog/index.php?courseid=100 but that courseid may or may not exist. This is because when you have groups enabled the URL is supposed to be passing in a groupid and not a course id. In my case, it is passing a groupid of 100, but the blog/index.php is trying to load a course with an id of 100 instead of a group.

      Looking in the blog/index.php it accepts a groupid parameter. If you manually change courseid=100 to groupid=100 it takes you to the correct page.

      This is definitely happening on 2.2.3 and the code looks the same on 2.3.2.
