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.

I'm not sure if this is something new, or it's just that no one has reported it to me until now, but it seems that IE users get an error when using the advanced editor and they click the "insert image" or "insert email address" buttons. To fix this, I had to make an edit in forums/clientscripts/vbulletin_textedit.js as follows:


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

Change to (add your forum's url where I've put www.mysite.com/forums/):


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

AND


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

(same as above, put your forum's url in place of www.mysite.com/forums/)


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

That way, when the user is in the groups directory, it is not trying to access relative (and non-existent) urls.

How's the security on this modification? Has anyone ever had their forum hacked because of it?

Also, does it increase server load?

HI Forum!

I am completely crazy to see this amazing addon running in my Forum - but it seems I'm too stupid to install...
When I run the installer, an error appears:

Warning: main(./global.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/kunden/webs/test/forum/groups/tools/grps_installer.php on line 36

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './global.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /var/kunden/webs/test/forum/groups/tools/grps_installer.php on line 36

The vB is in a subfolder /forum, there I also uploaded the file structure.
In groups/include/config_grps.php I tried several versions:
../forums/ , ../../forums/ and also /var/kunden/webs/test/forum/forums/ .
The error looked a bit different in all Versions, but I never made it run
Any Ideas?

Thanks (and waiting impatiently!)

There is a Seperate Mod that you need to install to fix this. Look in the Mod Post above and I believe there is a link pointing to it.

yes i solved it with a str_replace, like the mod that makes

one idee:
  • automatic namecomplete in the invite form! like pm's (i hope you know what i mean)
  • where can i set the groupimage? i find nothing
one more thing


the admin path is not static!!!
it can be changed in the config.php, so you should use the variable instead of '="admincp/index.php', in the footer replacement + in the group moderation link

Ummm, there is just one line : chdir("../forums/");

My directory structure looks like:

/ <= the domain points to
/forum <= inside is the vBulletin
/forum/forums <= the 1st Folder of the Addon
/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
