Yes, it's better there is a page for group to show all the group member's update, blogs and events. Not just a group. Thanks.

To catch an actual error, enable DEV_MODE in ow_includes/config.php and check update again. You'll get an actual error message. Post it here.

I had the same problem. Here's what I did:

1. Got the 500 error.
2. In another window, I deleted the Groups plugin folder and compressed folder using my ftp client.
3. Press back on 500 error page to go back to admin panel.
4. The admin page should now have the button that says you need to update your database, but if you press it, you have to start over. DON'T PRESS IT YET!
5. Re-upload the plugin in the other window using ftp and extract.
6. NOW you can press the update button.
7. BINGO! Your groups plugin should now be updated and free from 500 error!!! Let me know if this helps!!!

There's only one opportunity to accept an invitation to a group.  If you don't get the process right the first time, you're stuck!  I run a kids' site and they don't get things right the first time by any stretch.  It would be great if the invites also sent the invitation to the oxwall email box *or* left the invite notification up at the top until the invite was accepted.

Jayme, thanks for your feedback.
Can you clarify on what you mean by 'If you don't get the process right the first time, you're stuck! '. Does the invitation disappear? if yes, then when it happens?

Is there supposed to be a way for users to add photos to a group? From what I'm reading here from other users I'd gathered that there is. Strange thing is I don't see any photo upload option on the groups page. Am I missing something?

I was able to attach a forum to the group via the admin settings but no albums or options to upload group photos seem to be on the page.

Tim, users can add images to the group's wall or newsfeed.
Group creator can add an image to the group, when creating the group.
Please find screen shots attached.

Thanks Aliia, I simply had rich media disabled in the User Input Settings under Content Comments. That's why I wasn't seeing the add video/photo buttons. Guess I didn't immediately realize these content settings were also for walls.

Thanks for your time.

I also receive a 500 error when attempting to use this plug in. 
 I followed the work around instructions offered above but get the same error regardless.


I attempted to enable DEV_MODE in order to generate a specific error to report but when I did that my site didn't load at all.


I replaced the config.php file with the back up one I saved before hand, so my site loads again, however I am back to square one.

Pavan,  "Groups" plugin uses standard Oxwall's communication tools: newsfeed, wall, forum.
Only newsfeed allows adding comments to initial posts.
