    Jerome, Great plugin. Any interest in adding some theming capabilities for the admins? You may be familiar with Ura (formerly Tunists) Group Custom Layout (or maybe you started that one?). Anyhoo, would be great if admin could add image background (in GCL both entire site and inside group, so two images) as well as choose a color scheme or so for menus.

    That capability will remain in group_custom_layout

    Hello:

    The Auto join feature appears on my local test server but is not available on my live site. Any thoughts on what's going on. Thanks.

  • PatrickT 451 days ago

    I found the error of my ways!

    Thanks!

    @Thomas R:

    Hello,

    how can I nominate multiple administrators? I cannot find this feature.

    Thanks!

    1: have it enabled in the plugin settings

    2: go to the group member listing, use the user dropdown to add the use as a group admin

    @Jerome Bakker

    Thank you! Worked like a charm :-)

    this could be a bug, I think the problem lies in /lib/functions.php lines 81 & 99. Did you send out any invites to new email addresses (so never before invited) but check the resend invites box??

    Yes, I sent an invite to new email addresses, and selected 'resend invites' box.

    whoa I just looked at that file, totally lost :/ Is there a way to solve it? :( can I help?

  • Jerome Bakker 448 days ago

    @rjcalifornia:

    I will look into this tomorrow

  • rjcalifornia 447 days ago

    @Jerome

    Well, I've been doing some testing and the problem is not the 'resend invites' box. The problem is the 'closed groups'.

    If you set the access to 'Group Members only' the code will be always 'Expired' Once you make the group 'public' even the old invitation codes will work.

    I hope that helps!

    Thanks for the help, it should be fixed in the newest version. check it out in our code repository

    Everything works excellent! This is a must have plugin. Thanks Jerome for the fast bug fixing! Totally awesome plugins!

  • rjcalifornia 444 days ago

    Sorry to bother you so much hehe :D

    Quick question: On the 'Invitation by email' how can I change it so that it doesn't have to wait for the small drop down to appear, instead to enter emails right there separated by commas? :)

  • Melvyn Gómez 444 days ago

    how i can remove "Leave Group" buttom from the Group, so the normal users added by the admin can't leave the group

  • rjcalifornia 444 days ago

    @Melvyn you need to extend the Groups plugin to do that. Or try the roles framework

  • DhrupDeScoop 444 days ago

        if(!elgg_is_admin_logged_in())
            elgg_unregister_menu_item('title','groups:leave');

    I seem to be having a javascript problem? When I try to save the Group Activity widget it responds "We could not save your widget".

  • mobabur94 436 days ago

    Same here, @Jon L

  • Charles D 436 days ago

    mobabur94 and I work together.  We were actually getting a PHP error as well that we resolved with (https://github.com/Elgg/Elgg/commit/ef19671ba2c154449cef16bae25814e70e8384f3) Seems they will be including this fix in 1.8.14.  Still getting the error "We could not save your widget".

  • Jon L 436 days ago

    Interesting. I'll let you know if I figure anything out. I don't seem to get an error on the page, so it must be something on the backend.
