New Group Management "built in"

    All very nice, but the method for adding members to a group from the admin dashboard doesn’t work very well and the old method of simply choosing them from a list was much more effective.

    Anyone else think this ?

    @hkcharlie You can still use the old method from the front end, no problem. Know that there have been a lot of improvements in upcoming BP 1.8.

    Also changing admins, mods and kicking people from the group etc. doesn’t really work very well in it’s new form. I’ve re-installed the Group management plugin for the moment.

    I know 1.8 is on the way (which is half the reason I wanted to mention it) and I’m really looking forward to it as it sounds like quite a few a leaps. But as usual, slightly terrified at the same time, since usually we all know something isn’t going to work after the upgrade. :)

    I don’t think this is true, especially since the 1.5+ releases. BuddyPress is rock-solid nowadays.

    Buddypress is fine, it’s everything else we have plugged into it that I worry about.

    Can’t add where, please be specific.

    If as before you’re talking about adding members to groups from the dashboard, I can without any problem.

    From the dashboard:
    Goto Groups
    Find the group > edit
    Add new members (where you have to know the persons name as is on the site) type it in.
    click on it and it’s added under Add users.

    Then what?

    I’ve tried “Save Changes”, hitting enter, non works.
    Someone mentioned above “use the old method from the front end, no problem” but I don’t know what this is either. I’ve done it using the old membership plugin now, but thought I’d share as you guys are getting closer to the perfect article.

    I thank you!

    it works fine, you save/update just as though you were saving a post. on refresh it shows the member added and navigating to frontend shows user added to group.

    Please do ensure you are testing in a clean environment though.

    I’ve just checked a clean install and yes, it seems to be working.

    (But as usual, slightly terrified at the same time, since usually we all know something isn’t going to work after the upgrade.) I rest my case.

    When I figure out what it is, I will let you know.
