    Hello

    I have installed a buddypress forum plugin to my wordpress site, I want to set up a private/hiden user group for some members using buddypress group. After install buddypress, I am able to create a private group without any problems, but I couldn’t find a way to add members to this group. I have users listed on my main WordPress site. The registration for new users is desabled, because I want have only the admin to add/create new users, however, as the admin, I can’t find anywhere to add the users to the BP group as members.

    Please help.

    I also installed buddypress template pack.

    When I go to gropus – visit the groupname – members, I can see only one member listed and can’t see “invitation” link.

    if I go to groups – visit groupname – admin – members, I can see “this group has no members” and there is no “invitation” link.

    I am new to BuddyPress as well. From what I have tested, you can only add new members to group from backend Dashboard “Groups” menu. By default, this “Groups” menu is only accessible by site admin.

    However, you can setup group admin and moderator. Both roles can invite friends to the group. This requires the friends feature enabled. Group admin\moderator have to add other users to their friend list. Then they can invite these friends of their own to the group.

    I hope this help!

    I also try to give group admin the ability to add new member directly (instead through dashboard “Groups” menu or invitation), but no luck so far. If anyone knows there is a plugin can do so, please let me know.

    I just found one plugin “Invite Anyone” that allows group admin\moderator to invite any site users to the group. This plugin also allows you to invite people to join the site & group(s) through email.

    This is what I was looking for!
