How to create a group

  • Could someone please help to explain how to ‘Create a Group’ in BuddyPress. I have just spent the best part of the day going over the many answers to the same same that so many people seem to have. I installed the latest version of Buddypress and the Template pack today on PageLines Pro Theme which I purchased specifically because it is ‘Buddypress’ ready. I can see a menu for ‘My Account’ and then ‘Groups’ in the drop down list. There are two options there for ‘My Groups’ and ‘Invites’ – none of these has a link to create a new group. Any help would be REALLY appreciated as I really don’t know what to do here . Thanks.

    That’s from the BP Admin Bar. To create a group, go to http://yoursite.com/groups, then click on “Create a Group” link just beside the page title – Groups Directory. Or to go straight to creating a group, just type in http://yoursite.com/groups/create

    Hi mercime – you just saved my day ! How can I thank you enough – am still trolling through countless forums looking for the elusive answer and you picked it straight away. Strange thing is I’ve been looking at a/the ‘Buddypress Manual’ at WPMU.org and it only says to click the Groups tag at the right side of the admin bar – however this link is missing for me ! Don’t really understand why there is no ‘idiots guide’ to setting these things up ………. Many thanks – I really appreciate your time and help ! Regards – Richard

    That manual is a third party resource – not an official one.

    Never read that book, but thinking something to add to BP Codex. It’s not hard to do, just have to find time to do it :-)
