    Hi,

    At our chamber of commerce we want to control the groups and assign the members to the groups.

    How can we set up the groups from within WP Admin as I cannot see an option to do so in settings ?

    Regards,

    Mike

    @optimized You can create the group from frontend only.
    You can also limit the group create feature for admin only from BuddyPress Setting

    Setting >> BuddyPress >> Options

    Thanks Varun,

    After I log in and click groups I got to http://www.camaramaritima.org.pa/members/optimized/groups/ but it has a 404 message.

    Do you know what is causing t his to happen ?

    Regards,

    Mike

    Hi @optimized,

    I was having a somewhat similar problem, which was due to a coding problem with the latest version of buddypress.

    Do you have the activity feature of buddypress disabled? If so, then this is probably the same error I had. You can try activating the activity feature, or you can changed the code as indicated here: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/7870/7870.02.patch

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Not too clever having a release with the main feature not working!

    Thanks for the advice. Just for clarification – do I replace the red code with the blue code ?

    Regards,
    Mike

    Thanks.

    I still get a 404 error when clicking on the activity link when logged in after editing the code as described above:

    http://www.camaramaritima.org.pa/members/mike/activity/

    Have I missed something out in the set up ?

    Hi,
    I have resolved this 404 issue which was caused by unfriendly permalinks.

    However, now I do not get a 404 error but do not see a page either. I just see the website header and footer section. This is true for all the links on the buddypress menu.

    How can we get these pages displaying ?

    Thanks,

    Mike
