Support » Plugin: Group Documents » [Plugin: Group Documents] Can't get it working with BP 1.5 RC1

  • Did anyone get this plugin working with BP 1.5 RC1?

    The tab option “Documents” is not showing on group pages and I’m guessing bp_core_new_subnav_item() or related functions have been changed.

    The admin option tab is there however, linking to /groups/[groupname]/admin/documents/

    I tried to manually enter /groups/[groupname]/documents/ but no luck… it’s a 404.

  • Confirm that. The “Documents” tab disappeared from my group pages when I updated to 1.5.

    The documents are still there, though, as I can access them through external links.

    From there, I can see the actual route is… and then a long string of numbers which I think is the file name assigned to it by GD. Unless you know what it is, you won´t be able to access them through your browser; but you might find them using this route in your ftp file manager.

    At any rate I hope GD is updated real soon, I just finished loading course material into my course´s group yesterday, and now its totally useless without the tab.

    I suppose the changes made to how the group menus are manipulated are explained here:

    Unfortunately, I don’t know php good enough to fix the plugin.

    I might have fixed it

    1. Open buddypress-group-documents/index.php
    2. Around line 248:


    'parent_slug' => $bp->groups->slug,


    'parent_slug' => bp_get_current_group_slug(),

    3. Around line 259


    add_action( 'wp', 'bp_group_documents_setup_nav', 10 );


    add_action( 'bp_setup_nav', 'bp_group_documents_setup_nav', 10 );

    Okay, I managed to get the Document option showing in the group menu but uploading files doesn’t work.

    The form’s action path (set by $template->action_link) is incorrect.

    $template->action_link is defined here

    $this->action_link = get_bloginfo('url') . '/' . $bp->current_component . '/' . $bp->current_item . '/' . $bp->current_action . '/';

    …and “$bp->current_component” is incorrect. It says “groups” but I have changed the group slug like so:

    define( 'BP_GROUPS_SLUG', 'verksamhetsgrupper' );


    Upload works when I hard coded the URL.

    I also had to modify cssjs.php in order to enqueue the css and javascript files.

    Where are you @peter-anselmo, we need you!

    The Development Version has been updated with some changes. Anyone who knows what that means is welcome to give it a whirl. I hope to have a new release out soon.

    Just tagged 0.4.0 as Stable. Requires BP version 1.5. If you’re running an earlier version, don’t upgrade Group Docs.


    Just tried v.0.4.0. The “documents” tab appears again – OK – but now the problem is that when I click on it, it says it can´t find the page : it just says “page not found”. Therefore, I STILL can´t see the uploaded documents or upload new documents. Please help…

    Oh Noes! If you can, could you send me an email to Good stuff to include would be your wordpress version, an example URL, and any customisations (such as slugs defined in bp-config.


    I’ve the same problem “page not found” on a fresh install wp 3.2.1 bp 1.5 and group documents 0.4

    I’m using private groups (for information)

    I’ve find why

    on bp 1.5 the community menu is not longer valid
    i’ve re-create it, and put forums, groups and users in subs menus

    your plugin don’t understand that, and the 404 error appear

    that’s all



    I’ve the same problem “page not found” on a fresh install wp 3.2.1 bp 1.5 and group documents 0.4

    Same problem here



    I got the same problem aswell, on a fresh install, the documents tab shows up but the link doesnt work. 404. Did anyone solve this yet?

    For my case the problem was the permalink of User Groups page

    If you go in the buddypress menu and the page menu.

    In the User Groups section, check what is the selected page. After that, go in the page menu of wordpress and check the permalink of this page.

    My problem was

    It must be for the plugin group document to work correctly
