    Hi Slava,

    Not sure you are still wathcing this but in case you are I wanted to ask what you wanted to do about ongoing support of this plugin. There’s an issue with the current version which means it no longer works. I can’t claim to be an expert but I’ve managed to get it going by inserting a couple of checks on the saved settings:

    buddypress-groups-extras/core/loader.php

    insert below line 115:

    115 - $order = groups_get_groupmeta( $bp->groups->current_group->id, 'bpge_nav_order' );
    116 - if ( !$order ) $order = array();

    insert below line 1078:

    1078 - $old_data = groups_get_groupmeta( $bp->groups->current_group->id, 'bpge' );
    new line 1079 - if ( !$old_data || $old_data == '1' ) $old_data = array();

    The check for $old_data == 1 is to fix any group settings that failed with the error this fixes.

    So yep, wondering how these fixes can be applied to the plugin? Would you be able to update it or maybe give me the ability to upload?

    Hi @venutius,

    Those checks should be a bit different, but I will try to find some time in the upcoming 2 days to quickly install BP + BPGE and fix any things that I might find, including those that you posted in this thread.

    Meanwhile, I’ve created an issue on Github: https://github.com/slaFFik/BP-Groups-Extras/issues/135

    Thank you for posting this!

    Thanks Slava, I figured you’d be able to come up with something better

    @venutius when you say the current version, do you mean the current version of buddypress? Or wordpress?

    I am holding off on upgrading both until I know what is affected. This is a really useful plugin, and I can’t find anything comparable to replace it with.

    I’m not sure which version of either the error became apparent tbh, I just notice it no longer worked for new installs.
