I have a partial fix for 1.7.x:
In groupsfrommembers/views/default/forms/groups/invite.php, add the following line before line 33 (which starts with "if (($members = get_entities"):
This will fix the problem with the member picker, but not the search. I still need to look at the search. To make sure you are always using the member picker, go to the groupsfrommembers settings and set it to a number that is larger than your maximum number of users. If I get a chance, I will look at a fix for the search function.
There is also an additional change that adds a link to the group invitations page to the email that is sent in groupsfrommembers/actions/invite.php. The changes are too complex to describe here. I will email you the file if you would like it. Just let me know.
Hi..! where is the option to invite people from other networks. i have a option invite friends, but it shows a list of people who are friends to me. is that i'm missing something. pls help
@Praveen. When you install the plugin and activate it after the groups plugin, the "Invite Friends" option in the sidebar group memu should morph into "Invite Members". The UI remains almost the same, but the collection of people to choose should include the full network.
If it doesn't work please check that you have effectively activated the plugin, that is sits below the standard group plugin and finally, run the upgrade.php script.
