While this plug-in looks, and I believe very likely is, great for simple multi-site installations, where the social network is activated on the main site, it’s fundamentally broken on sub-site installs. The problem is that when you create a group page on the sub-site, this software actually makes a call to the main site. The page thus gets instantiated there, not on the subsite. Even though the page *is* accessible through the groups/extras/all-pages link, it’s *not* visible in the “Group Pages” area of the sub-site. That, in turn, is fatal. The problem is that when you access a group page through groups/extras/all-pages, the shortcode are all expanded, so you can’t change them! The only way to edit a page is through Admin > Group Pages; but the pages don’t show up there! Furthermore, this problem is NOT well documented in user-facing documentation, AND has been posted as an issue on GitHub for the better part of a year with no apparent progress to resolve it. And yes, it is a *bug* — possible a design bug, but a bug nonetheless. In a nutshell, this software does not work with what is a clearly valid WP configuration: option “F” under multisite configuration in the WP Codex. At a minimum, folks, DOCUMENT THE PROBLEM so that people don’t waste their time re-debugging this known problem.
