Welcome ladies and gentleman, this is the release thread for GRPS, an interactive groups commune. I hope you enjoy this release and i sincerely hope it provides everything to your community in which you're looking for.

What is it?
It's a groups commune. The original idea is that forums with lots and lots of forums on the front-page suck, as a result i thought most of the conversation was rather obscure in regards to what the forums were trying to achieve, so it'd be nice to have that all going on elsewhere, not detracting away from the content and stopping your front-page from looking like a car crash.

MISC PIECE OF INFO:
The code has spanned an awful lot of time and i've learned alot since the core of this was developed, i'm hoping to recode it around PHP5 and using classes and all that lark soon. It's simply a matter of time and how many resources i can dedicate to this, sadly i'm not Jelsoft, i'm just one man on my tod.

PROBLEMS:
Please note that although the general perception is one of plenty of problems. any genuine problems have been fixed and will continue be. most problems are down to PLBCAK. Seriously. In the most respectful of ways ofcourse. Mostly because it's my fault and my instructions, i sometimes forget that i have to KISS.

GROUP LEADER ICON NOT SHOWING UP:
Only do this, if it is an isolated problem, in forums/includes/function_grps.php find:

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

and replace with

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

FORUMS IN SUBDOMAIN?
I had a play with getting this to work and i couldn't, thus i'd suggest throwing it into your subdomain http//yourforums.yoursite.com/groups.

MALFORMED AVATAR IN POSTBITS?
Go to your vBulletin options and replace the contents of Strings To Find In "viewthread.php" with:

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

and the contents of Strings To Replace In "viewthread.php" with:

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

save and that's you sorted

i have got an error when i try creating a group and i have looked at the "vbgrps" doesnt exist and i see that in the install file it does not tell the database to make that table.

Database error in vBulletin 3.6.0:

Invalid SQL:
INSERT INTO vbgrps(title, description, catid, approved, leaderid, membercount)
VALUES ('test', 'test', 1, '0', 3, 1);

MySQL Error : Table 'vb.vbgrps' doesn't exist
Error Number : 1146

Import the Product File called "product-groupscommune" in ROOT to install the database/tables.

Luke, my mouse batteries are dead, so i can't really sort this out properly but here you go, this will fix the problem in the meanwhile.

Replace this with your groups/index.php and it should fix the problem. sadly i won't be able to do a full check for similar problems until the morning when my mouse has finished charging.

I get errors when I run the installer. I am thinking it's the way I have the config file set. My forums are in a subdomain. Any ideas how to set it?
