    the plugin's option pages says: *If others are left blank, then those features are removed from the group creation steps (ie, no option to select forums)

    when I create a group I don't see any step concerning a forum and I am the admin. is there anything else I need to do?

    What restrict group wp-admin options do you have set now?

    also what wp/bp versions

    wp 3.0.1
    bp 1.2.6
    your plugin 0.2.2

    just deactivated your plugin and tried creating a group. looks like this: http://screencast.com/t/uYIUE0r5WAu

    still nothing about forums? but they are activated and working?
    did I make a mistake when installing BuddyPress?

    The "Enable discussion forum" checkbox is under step 2 for group creation process

    The Restrict Group Creation plugin will remove certain components within step 2.

    So under wp-admin -> buddypress -> restrict group page:

    Restrict Group Creation
    - Roles and Capabilities

    Create group capability - "some wp_cap/role you define"
    Create group forum capability - "some wp_cap/role you define"
    Create private group capability - "some wp_cap/role you define"
    Create hidden group capability - "some wp_cap/role you define"

    So if you leave Create group forum capability blank, then "Enable discussion forum" checkbox is removed from step 2 of the group creation process. Same with private and hidden options.

    Otherwise you may enter the same wp_role/cap for all or select a higher wp_cap/role for those. (ie, i have subscriber (member) for creating a group and edit_posts (author) for all others)

    This plugin is coded to allow the super(site)_admin to bypass all options.

    ok, it seems some other plugin was interfering. I have disabled a few plugins and now I see the: create forum checkbox!

    The rest, I guess is working as desired :-)
    There was no doubt about how to use your plugin its just that even without your plugin I couldn't find the forum checkbox...

    thanks mate

    I don't know which one. I am new to BP so I am currently testing a lot of plugins to see how they work together and which ones are exclusive, which ones offer similar/same functionality.
    If I ever notice which one is the problematic one I'll make sure to let you know.
