Sneak Peek of User Created Groups in v0.6.1
@julian This is awesome!!! thank you!! the best feature in my opinion. i will try it out tonight.
one thing, what if there are tens of thousands of groups -- maybe the group page can be like tags page which allow user to search the groups with autocomplete...
This is awesome. How would I test this out? Still learning git
Will we be able to allow a user to create their own groups?
If so will they be e able to moderator their own group and select people to moderate with them?
@julian, I'm assuming adding people to groups and dragging cover photos is currently a little broken?
You can only add users to groups via the ACP side of group management -- user side relies on users joining groups themselves. It's possible the ACP portion is broken however
Drag/drop for cover photos shouldn't be broken. What browser?
The minimum browser requirement for that should be:
Chrome Firefox (Gecko) Internet Explorer Opera Safari (WebKit) 13 3.0 (1.9) (non standard), 7 (7) (standard) 10.0 16.0 6.0
@julian Tried in chrome and firefox, both latest. Both didn't do anything. But I am running Win 10 if that makes a difference Clicking edit on groups in the acp did nothing either.
Did this make it into 6.1?
@limitx3m it's in the master branch right now.
Yes, user created groups are in 0.6.1
For private groups, how to set the "owner" of that group?
I have created a test user, and "applied" for access to a private group.
I see the "Invtation Pending" button for that test user.
But, with my main account (admin), i did not see any notifications nor places to approve the user. Where is the information supposed to be?
is this normal ? maybe something to do with the group page template
ive uninstalled and reinstalled both vanilla and lavender themes , dones't seem to fix it

That looks Great, but what is the benefit for users - just a lable below nickname? What is the next step for that feature?
Big fan of these groups... still, I would like a feature added into these features.
And that is 'number of posts before allowed to join group'.. this would be awesome.
Have the group unlock after number of posts is met. You could have two types of base groups..
Administrator 'badge', after certain condition is met (number of posts), and user created 'badge', where people can join which ever friends group and display badge
Awesome work whoever thought of this

@julian, in this case all groups will have the same picture. But on your screenshots each group have individual picture. This feature does not available yet?
@shady2k Hover over the cover photo to change the picture via drag/drop.
We'll want to add upload via regular file input, but we don't have that right now.
Just recently upgraded to 0.6 and have noticed that we cant change the category permissions via the groups. We can only change the category permissions via the categories. unless i am missing something?
It might make sense to create a group and then be able to select what categories that group can see, rather than having to go to each category to change the permissions.
Ah, for some reason I thought this would be similar to facebook groups or vbulletin groups.
Will this soon allow for posts?
Right now it seems to just update users in the group to what others in the group has posted.
A group "feed" of sorts can be done. It was built for a client, though perhaps I can re-do it properly at some point
Main point was that it kind of defeats the purpose of having a forum, when you can have your own special conversations inside of a group -- I don't know...
As limitx3m says it would be great if you could post directly to the group but I can see how that might be defeating the purpose of the forum. However, what about adding a reply button to the list of posts in the group to save you having to open the full topic?
Did you ever get any further with the change of upload so that it works without drag and drop?
