    Hi Kento(@proaktion),

    we really love this plugin and currently running it on four of our sites ,but currently we do not see a way that users can get into groups from front end(except installing WordPress and sell group as product – but this one also does not give approval process .so anyone who buys this will become a member without any approval)
    to overcome this issue following simple idea was taken from facebook groups.

    list of Groups Shortcode

    This is a shortcode which list down all the group names with “request to join” search easily on top of the list there should be a search bar.

    for admin,editor,manager roles this list of group names will be clickable and that will redirect to group page.

    in the group page there will be a list of approval pending “join requests” done by users/subscribers and a buttons to approve/deny those requests infront of the user admin/editors/managers can approve requests from frontend.

    also in this way we can make few of our loyal site members a manager/supervisor role on the group to make the approval process more decentralized . like to here you opinion on this.

    Hi there!

    The idea of approval after the request to join a group is certainly good.

    You can actually achieve it without any modifications, here’s an example:

    Let’s assume you want to allow users to request to join a group called “Alpha”.

    1. Create a group “Alpha”
    2. Create a group “Request Alpha”
    3. Place this shortcode on a page: [groups_join group=”Request Alpha”] – reference
    4. Periodically review the members of the “Request Alpha” group and add them in bulk to the “Alpha” group on the back end (in the Users section). Remove those who are in the “Alpha” group from the “Request Alpha” group using the filters.

    Let me know if this works for you!


    yes it will work.thanks for the response Kento (@proaktion). but still there is no direct frontend way to approve/disapprove user.big help if you can sort that out. as i mentioned above if editor/any other role gets apporve right from frontend will solve the issue
