#6011 new defect (bug)

Groups: When friends component is disabled, group invites do not work

Description

On a default BP install, the groups and friends components are not auto-enabled.

Let's say I decide to also enable Groups only. When creating a group, there is mention of inviting users to a group:

* This is a hidden group

- Only users who are invited can join the group.
Group Invitations

Which members of this group are allowed to invite others?

- All group members
- Group admins and mods only
- Group admins only

However, group invites do not work without the friends component. This isn't really an issue for public groups. This is an issue for hidden groups and, to a lesser extent, private groups.

01.patch simply removes the text outlined above when the friends component is disabled. However, a hidden group without invite functionality is pretty much pointless. So how do we want to solve this? Do we need to take a step back and re-examine the current group invite process?

Yes. IMO it's one of the clunkiest parts of BP.

r-a-y, boonebgorges I think this ticket #5911 might also be interesting to look at if working on the group invite process.
