Some improvements and fixes to the plugin (11 posts)

    Hi there,

    I've added some stuff to this plugin for a project that needed some changes, including:

    - Some misc things that looked wrong in 3.1 -- sorry have forgotten the details
    - A configuration option to allow all new users to be added to a specified group
    - A bugfix for a problem that prevented the plugin from working because it was running before the profile fields were actually saved. I've changed it the hook from bn_auto_group_join to bp_core_activated_user, which has sorted it out. Not sure if this was because of the WP version change or some other bug, but it was a little tricky to chase down!

    Happy to send my current file or a patch, though I did also modify the indentation of the file without thinking about it, so a patch might be a bit difficult to apply against anything except the current released version.

    Hy Harry!

    Would be great to see or receive your code. I kept this plugin working up to wp 3.0.5, but it broke with 3.1.

    Thanks in advance,

    Harry (that's my name)

    I made this plugin work again with your hint (changing the hook bn_auto_group_join to bp_core_activated_user). Would be interested in the other things you added. Can you send me a copy of your file?

    Thank you

    Any chance you could post a link to the updated files or the changes you've made.
    I'm looking into a social network for a school district and your changes could be very helpful.

    Thank you

    PS. I actually just created this account to try and get the updates too. Ha

    Hello Harry,

    would be great to see your code. I worked at the code a long time and it doesn't work at all. We build a non-profit website for German physician assistants. Please help us.

    Kind regards :)

    Hi Harry, I tried downloading that version but it doesn't appear to work with the latest wordpress and buddypress mulitsite? I can't find the admin options?

    Hi Harry,

    Thanks for sharing your version. It works perfectly in my single user site. But, like calzo, I can't get it to work in my multi user site.

    Any help would be appreciated.
