    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

    I found the error of my ways!

  • Thomas R

    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 :-)

    @rjcalifornia :

    hmm the invitation codes are not working, they always come up as 'expired' same the url links

    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

    @rjcalifornia:

    I will look into this tomorrow

  • RJ (Arvixe)

    @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

    @Jerome

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

  • RJ (Arvixe)

    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

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

  • RJ (Arvixe)

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

  • DhrupDeScoop

        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".

    Same here, @Jon L

  • Charles D

    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

    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.
