Hi, I guess you are right.
The problem I have actually been having, though is finding a NEW group created every now & then, with a long spam description & then by NONE registered creatures, which I have to delete, who according to Statcounter have not even been on the site, because there is no record of them!
That is why I am looking for a way to stop this type of group creation, possibly by some bot.
I hope this is possible to allow only registered folks to create groups. I thought approval would help to catch bot/other non-serious creations, before their stuff gets public.
Thank you for the response.
Would that then mean only the admin can create groups?
I had thought may be it is possible to have only REGISTERED folks be able to create groups.
Is there anything like getting new groups approved before getting published like topics/comments?
I certainly did not go through all the details, though in another installation the link was working.
After going through the steps, I edited some settings under “B. Set Up Group and Sitewide Forums” and now the group forum is now active. I learned quite a number of new things about forums/group forums.
Thank you very much!
I appreciate your response. Actually as mentioned in my post on that page, there seems to be something missing in my installation for doing just that, although I already have the recommended buddypress 1.7. I do not have that mentioned interface which has the option to add new members, but might be mistaken & need some little more guidance.
I am actually looking for the function of the group admin being able to add members. I upgraded to 1.7 as soon as it came & otherwise have among other plugins bbpress, etc.
The problem though is I have gone through the Groups admin area several times, clicking on ALL available links, including one of editing it, beginning with the name, description, etc & all others & I certainly have none showing the interface shown above in the image with among other things “Add new members”.
Under Manage members, one can it seems only kick out or promote existing members, etc.
So I am quite lost. I am using the Custom Community theme & even tried twenty eleven, …
Is there any link in the Group section I have somehow mysteriously overlooked?
Actually, though this is a bit off topic, on the page for creating a group, first stage, I have at the bottom the option whether to inform all members of any changes in the Group via email. I am not sure whether this is default, or is added by a plugin, but it has “no” as default & changing this to “yes” does NOT get saved.
Anyway, I would appreciate any further help
So what can be done?
This is a new site Buddypress based site with Groups and if you make your Group create a private forum, it is not accessible (page not found error), although you see it in the Forums list!
It seems one cannot edit above post, so I will add that the latest Custom Community theme, I am using is the FREE version.
The problem seemed to be the Precisio theme. It seems buddypress works only with specific themes or at least the one it suggests during configuration. So I changed to one suggested above. During installation, I changed yet again to the buddypress default theme suggested configuration. Later, I tried to revert to Precisio & all pages created by the buddypress plugin where blank.
At least I now know where the problem lies
Thank you & regards
I was referring to this http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/setting-up-a-new-installation/buddypress-1-5-installation-wizard/ under Step 1.
I only have Components – Finish & nothing beyond, which should be the “Save & …” button.
I think it’s a not a browser issue as this is the same on different PCs where no other such problem has shown up for WordPress plugins. Also I think it is no server issue, with the PHP 5.3 & 5.2, with all other scripts, including Drupal running.
So running the installation wizard leads to a dead end.
I would appreciate any help …
