Thanks – the jQuery conflict was exactly the issue. I appreciate the help!
@Meini – I’m curious if you ever got anywhere with this user management plugin. I’m managing an older installation of WP/BP an need exactly the functionality you discuss here. I need to find users based on a certain xprofile field, but manage (deactivate) them via the WordPress admin. Do you have a plugin available I could look at? Thanks.
Check out Peter Anselmo’s Group Documents plugin: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-group-documents/
Peter does great work, and this plugin might get you very, very close to what you need. It provides a document repository for groups, allows uploaded files to be categorized and provides a backend management tool to determine allowable file types – among other features.
I’ve been using that plugin for quite some time, and would love to see the mods you’ve made.

Peter – just a UI recommendation…
I think it would be helpful to have the “Upload a new document” button (and subsequent form) appear at the top of the list of documents, rather than the current placement below the list. As the list of documents grows, users will need to scroll down until they see there is an option for them to actually upload a doc.
I’m pretty sure that the bp-custom.php file needs to be in the “plugins” directory, rather than the “mu-plugins” directory.
Those errors are almost always caused by trailing blank lines in your functions.php or bp-custom.php file. Check those files and see if you have any blank lines – that will likely solve your problem.
As I mentioned on another thread, it might be worth looking at Jeff Sayre’s “Featured Members” plugin. Since it appears that the list of people you want to feature in a sidebar is relatively static – only the Board of Directors members – this plugin would let you specify those specific people by ID, and output links to their profiles. Because this plugin is not tied to a group, the privacy restrictions of the group should not be an issue. You are simply identifying particular users to feature, regardless of the group(s) they belong to.
That said, the download page for Jeff’s plugin says it is compatible to BP 1.02, so I’m not sure if it will still work with 1.2.x. Jeff seems to be a very active participant here, and might be able to weigh in.
You mentioned in another thread that you don’t have the skills to code a plugin, so it might be worth finding a coder who could build what you need, or could modify Jeff’s plugin to meet your needs – perhaps the ability to add an option that specifies a particular group on the widget admin panel, and have the widget output a list of members.
I just tried out the revised code @r-a-y posted above in my bp-custom file, and it overwrote uploaded avatars.
I’m running 22.214.171.124. Just noticed that there has been another update to 1.2.3, so haven’t installed that yet. Given the current pace of BP updates, it is very challenging to stay current.
I saw the ticket you referenced, but it seems to address a slightly different issue.
The issue I’m experiencing is that an administrator can, while staying in the group, demote himself and thereby leave the group without an admin – which seems functionally the same as an admin leaving the group. However, there is no warning that prevents this.
I was curious if this was, for some odd reason, “expected” behavior before I report it as bug.
I’ll try to deal with the upgrade issue and see if it was somehow addressed.
