"Orange" Portals prohibiting group members from joining the instance.

This is the second time I've been in a group that has encountered this issue.

At times, some group members see what they describe as orange zoning portals (as opposed to purple). that prohibit them from joining the instance.

We tried multiple things, like reforming the group. Abandoning all instance-related quests etc, but to no avail.

What's the reason for the orange portals and why can't certain members join a flashpoint?

It's quite simple, once you've done a FP (at least in HM, don't know if in normal happens too) it get's locked, and you can't do it again, every FP in HM is daily, and once you've already completed it, the portal turns orange.

Generally - orange means locked, purple means open.

You have to talk to the quest npc/console to open the gate in the first place and only one can be open at a time.
