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.

riiight
10x man
also having some issues with the template for the groups (aint the one with the one i am using on my forums) any tip?

Also cant rilly understand where to find the relevant input box....
you may notice that the smilies and posticons are not working, you will have to edit them individually and prefix them with your forums path. i.e. images/smilies/smilie1.gif BECOMES http://www.yoursite.com/forums/image...es/smilie1.gif

In order to do this, please go to your admincp, find the relevant input box and prefix the text in said book with the url to your forums.

Question

Great Hack, sabret00the!!

Does this Great Hack Work With vBulletin 3.6.7 ??

I can see them Working in you Web Site with vBulletin 3.6.8, so I guess it would work fine with vB 3.6.7!! Is that Correct??

My Best Regards, sabret00the!!

/forum/groups <= the 2nd one...

So I tried to run:
http://www.mydomain.com/forum/groups..._installer.php

What is the right way to configure the config file?
chdir("../forums/");
chdir("../../forums/");
chdir("/forum/forums/");
or the complete path since the Serverroot? (/var/kunden/webs/test/......)

Or should I upload everything to another separated folder?

Thanks again
In case the Hack will be Used in the "groups" folder inside the folder of the forums like "forums" (ROOT/forum/groups/), the "/tools/grps_installer.php" should have the Sentence in the file "/INCLUDES/config_grps.php":

chdir("../");

I think that the option

chdir("../forums/");

should be used when "groups" is Installed in the same level that the "forums" Folder, where the vBulletin Forums are Installed, like (ROOT/groups/), in the file "/INCLUDES/config_grps.php"!!

So if you'll have the "groups" folder inside the "forums" folder, the use the first Option in the file "/INCLUDES/config_grps.php":

chdir("../");

My Best Regards!!

thanks for this great mod!

got a quick question, how do I add this to show correctly in the who's online list?
so it will show user is "Viewing Groups".

I recently noticed that group members including leaders can only reply via the quick reply box. If they click on "New Reply" or "go advanced" in the quick reply box, upon submission this error shows:

username, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
However if simply using the quick reply box, it works.

Hey. Great hack...but at my Groups Commune...users cannot edit their own posts. I checked the permissions a couple of times. I allowed the usergroup to edit their own posts at GPRS but there is no edit button.

Can someone plese tell me what to do?

thanks in advance.

you haven't configured your config_grps.php correctly.

Hi,

Just installed. I get this message when I go to my groups site:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?

If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I have the limit set at one so a user and only join 1 group, can I show that group on their postbit_legacy?

Is there a code for that?

I would greatly appreciate it!

And one other think, is their a way to change the word group on every page to clan instead. Where would I go about editing that?

1/ nothing that already exists.

2/ you'd have to edit the phrases.
