Description: Very easy modification. This template modification simply add a table on the top of your groups overview under the navbar with links to create new groups and search for groups. It should be able to easily integrate into your design as well as easy to install.
I made this templatemodification because my members have to scroll down first a big list of groups before they can find the "create group" button.

Instructions/Installation: Very Easy

In the Style Manager, open the template "SOCIALGROUPS" and under $navbar add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Thats all :)

If you like this modification please click install .

Live demo: http://www.nerofix.com/group.php? ("create group" link is not shown for guests there)

Screenshot see attachement!

Can you give me your SOCIALGROUPS template code? Then I can have a look to fix it for you.

I have not edited it. This is from the latest beta release (3):

Okay, replace everything in your SOCIALGROUPS template with this code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If this doesnt work, then please give me the link to your forum, then I can have a deeper look.
