Pretty fresh new on Commons, great great tool.
Here’s my problem : my first commons testing website had a nice “group menu” on the left of every group (see joined, good-one.png file).
I’ve made a new install, and this time, no “group menu” appears, and I’m enable to find out how I managed, on the firt one, to activated that “group menu”
Any help very welcome.
Hi Daniel, this is set in Appearance/Widgets. In the group sidebar add the Buddypress Groups: Groups widget. See attach partial screen capture.
The group sidebar menu (About, Forum, etc) only shows up when you are on a single group page.
To be sure you are viewing a single group page, navigate to the Groups Directory by clicking on the “Groups” link in the top nav bar (or via example.com/groups) and then click on a group in that directory.
Hi Ray and Troy.
Thanks for your answer.
Well, I’ve put the Buddypress Groups: Groups widget in it’s right place but I still don’t have the group sidebar menu (About, Forum, etc) on a single group page.
I got a group directory (that is coming I guess from the Buddypress Groups: Groups widget) but no group sidebar menu at all.
Hi Daniel, my apologies, I was moving quickly and gave you faulty advice. Ray’s advice is the correct advice, that menu appears when you are in a single group.
Also, Ray is associated with CBox and is a much more authoritative source of advice, while I’m a user puzzling through things myself.
In the future I’ll try and temper my zeal to contribute back with a greater accuracy of advice.
Hi Troy —
I absolutely love that fellow CBOX users are giving each other advice!! That’s how we know there is a real community developing here. Thank you so much for being an active part of it.
There’s really no problem about that : I prefer a “faulty” advice than nothing 🙂
Many thanks for having try to help me
This said, I still don’t have my group sidebar menu 😉
The group sidebar only shows up on a single group page and not on the Groups Directory page.
Are you saying that you navigated to a single group page and do not see a group sidebar?
For example, this group, Help & Support, has a sidebar:
But the Groups Directory page does not:
Yep, no sidebar menu on a group page
You can take a look here http://data.dbourrion.org/groups/groupe-1/
I was able to trace the problem and have added a fix here:
Can you temporarily make that change to
wp-content/themes/cbox-theme/engine/includes/buddypress-cbox.php and see if that works for you?
That fix has bring the sidebar menu back >> http://data.dbourrion.org/groups/groupe-1/
Many many many thanks
Thank you Ray, mine is working too!! Brilliant!
