Group invite says sent but really hasn't

I am using elgg 1.1, i've got about 12 users on the website at the moment. I created a public group and each time that I click on "invite friends" it brings up the normal page where you choose from your friends... However, after clicking "invite" it tells me "invite has been sent" but it really hasn't.

I tested this one three accounts that I set up myself through the website and none of the invites got sent to any of the accounts.

Is this a bug or am I doing something incorrectly? If it is a bug, does anyone know a fix for it?

  • I've had the same problem.  After requesting to join a group, I haven't seen any real message to "approve" or "deny" the request when logged in as the group admin.  I assume I should be looking for something similar to the request messsage you get when you make a friend request using the friend request plugin.
