How to Remove someone from a Group | Forum

How can I Remove someone from a Group. I don't see any option for that. Admin should be able to remove someone from a group and member should be able to leave a Group. Maybe there is options and I'm missing it.

Thanks in Advance

Users can leave a group by visiting the group and clicking "leave"

The site admin cant remove someone from a group without logging in to that users account

Or you can do that via phpmyadmin in ow_groups_group_user

compare the user id in ow_base_user table and group id in ow_groups_group and delete certain row

You should consider creating an option for that in future updates, both for the Admin, and for the creator of the Group. In Skype and other Social Platforms, the creator of  a Group has an option to remove or Block members for any reason (usually inactivity). My site is for game developers and such. Such an option would be considered a given and lack of having that option is considered a weakness. Perhaps it's different for other genres of Oxwall social uses. While I don't have Groups yet, in the future it could daunting task to keep up with removal requests. 

Thanks and hope you'll consider for the future

Dominick sorry for misleading, you can remove a user from group doing the following

In the users block in the group, click on view all button,after that you need to hover over a user you will be displayed a drop down menu with the delete option.
