    Can you provide more details about your installation? BP/WP versions?

    I’m having the same problem.

    WordPress MU 2.9.2.
    Buddypress Version 1.2.3

    This is your problem. Recent changes to the plugin have made it so that the menu is only compatible with WP 3.1+. I apologize for not making the appropriate change in the minimum requirements in the readme file. I’ll do so soon.

    In the meantime, I *highly* encourage you to get your WP installation up to date! 🙂

    Thanks – I uploaded .4 and it’s working.

    I am having the same problem. I was able to install and activate the plugin without a problem, but after activating the plugin the menu item never appeared.

    I am running wordpress 3.2.1 and buddypress 1.2.6.

    I also have s2member pro installed.

    The website is

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Same situation here. WordPress 3.2.1. Buddypress 1.5.1. BP Group Management 0.5.2. I’m using multisite. Buddypress is installed on a subsite. With the upgrade to Buddypress 1.5.1, Buddypress administrative links moved from “Network Admin” to “Site Admin”. The link to group management does not appear in the Buddypress admin segment.



    My temporary fix for the absent link is the following in functions.php.

    add_action('admin_menu', 'add_groupmanagement');
    function add_groupmanagement() {
    add_submenu_page( 'bp-general-settings', 'Group Management', 'Group Management', 'manage_options', 'bp-group-management', 'add_groupmanagementlink' );
    function add_groupmanagementlink() {
    echo '<a href="/wp-admin/network/admin.php?page=bp-group-management">Click here to manage Buddypress groups</a>';


    Like you I have the same situation, but I am new to WP/BP and have a few questions about the “fix”. The functions.php file exists in every theme. Thus, if you switch themes, you’d have to edit the new theme’s functions.php (is that correct?). Is there someplace special within the functions.php file where the fix should be copied such as within “is_admin”? Sorry for what should probably be an obvious resolution, but I’ve spent a long time trying to figure out group management without much luck. My installation is WP 3.2.1 with BP 1.5.1, BP Group Management 0.5.2 and I am not using MU.



    More information on my former post. Under the left sidebar Admin navigation is a “BuddyPress” component. Within that there is a “Group Management” component. Selecting the “Group Management” link notes that I don’t have any groups but there is a link to “Plugin Setting”. Where do I create groups? There is still no menu under Dashboard.

    Any word on this plugin supporting wp 3.3 and bp 1.5.2?

    I am having the same issue. WP 3.3.1 and BP 1.5.4.

    To reiterate, I have no Groups menu item.

    I do have the BuddyPress menu item and within it, I do have the groups checkbox selected. I can also create a group on the frontend, but I cannot access it from the admin side.

    It works for me. No problem. Looking at network admin dashboard I found the group management at “BuddyPress”…

    I used the code above to get to the link like this.

    My issue is that I am running Multisite. How do I get this so that I can control a subsite?
