  • Hi,

    I'm new around here and I tried to install this plugin into my site. Everything went fine except when I invite another group as a member of one particular group I get the following message

    The requested URL /elgg/action/groups/addtogroup-group was not found on this server.

    Any idea what's wrong?

    P.S I did change RewriteBase to the correct value (/elgg/ in this case) in the .htaccess file and in fact, the installation process went fine without any errors.

  • Hi Diego,

    I have exactly the same problem... there seems to be a php file missing as I can find nothing called "addtogroup-group.php" but there is an "addtogroup.php" file... any clues please?

    Cheers, Mark

  • is there any plugin available to vreate subgroups?

  • I think we need to notify the user when the group owner deleted from the group.

  • Also there should be confirm alert box before deleting the user from the group.

  • is there any plugin available to create subgroups?

  • Hi, how do i exactly create a sub group using this plugin? Could some one help? Thanks.

  • Re subgroups... These are created by inviting groups to become members of other groups... i.e seperate groups of Tenors, Baritones and Soprans can join the Choir Group as members aka sub groups.  At least this is the theory, however, as mentioned earleir, it seems to be broken and the developer of this plugin is recoding it at the moment for the 1.7 release...

  • Diago, I so want this feature to work, but can not find a way to fix it... when I try to invite a group I get :

    Not Found

    The requested URL /action/groups/addtogroup-group was not found on this server.

    and it is true, I can not find this referance in the plugin at all, or in your tar file... HELP!

  • Is there any way to have "draggable Widgets" on the Group profile so group owners can organise their own look and functionality?  I reckon it would be a killer plugin if it can be done, but I know too little to do it myself :(

  • I enabled this plugin and now I am not able to have hidden groups...   I reinstalled elgg, disabled and re-enabled all plugins.  Cnayou please let me know wha tis messed up in the database and how to fix this to get back hidden groups...

  • What diffence among Network, Group and Organization?

  • Hi all,

    I have installed this mod, looked forward to using this - everything seems to work - Except -but I now cannot create or edit groups! I kept getting:

    Form is missing __token or __ts fields

    So, as descibed earlier, I have added:

    <?php echo elgg_view('input/securitytoken'); ?>

    But this only gives me a blank page after I hit SAVE.

    Anyone help or advise please.

    I really need this subgroups............


  • Think I have sorted it.

    I have moved the Groups plugi to be below Groupextended - No works!!


  • Hi Diego,

    I have enabled this group, but not sure how

    Groups as members (aka subgroups) creating subgroups is possible

    - forums

    - pages

    will appear


  • Hi Ashwin, I had problems with this myself, alas, Diago was too busy to help.  The feature now seems to be working... to some degree anyway. 

    In order to have your sub-groups, you have to "invite" them to join the master group.  You do this through the "invite friends" function, but obviously select the group picker.

    When you do this, the sub-group is invited to join, although this is ONLY done via an email.  There is no notification I can see via the normal system (although the plugin displays them very nicely).

    Another issue with this functionality is that the Groups as Members (aka Subgroups) are not displayed on the profile. Although they are present in the "Members Management" view.

    Finally, a slightly strange thing, the Group itself appears as a member of the Group (i.e. "X" group is a member of "X" Group.  Strange, but I guess there must be a reason (perhaps this is a part of the sub-group functionality? I have not dared remove one though!)

  • Hi

    I have configured the plugin correctly. I was able to invite groups and friends to join the groups. But there wasn't any group to join when we visit the subgroup as an owner. I guess Iam missing the "invite friends" plugin and the "notifications" too.



  • Hope this will be ready for 1.7  :-)

  • Hi Ashwin, that is about it... it almost works, but not quite. 

    This is a valuable function for many of us, so I hope it is fixed and upgraded for 1.7

  • @dwaipayan

    I use it at my 1.7, and works ok but have some bugs:

    In order to the invite people to group works ok, I installed the "Invite members to groups" plugin and runs ok(before that, if you invited a user to your group, the user was added suddenly, without the user approve the invitation)

    The correct order(unless for my installation) plugin is:
    Event calendar
    Groups extended
    Groups from members
    Groups rivers
    ..if i put that plugins in other orden, dont work properly.
    -And finally, after installing group extended I lost the recent topics at the front of the group.. Im working in that(but my knowledge about php is very poor, so i dont know how many time waste in that..)
    well, thats all for me. But some people have problems with hidden groups too (I dont know about that because my comunnity dont use hidden groups)
