    Hi. Say the Blog Categories for Groups plugin I just downloaded will create posts OK, but will not display them in the Group’s Blog page Posts tab. Have tried multiple times. If I create a post with the New Post tab, the post is visible in the Dashboard | Posts page, but no posts show up on the Groups Blog page.

    Problem showed up immediately after installed. FWIW, The Buddyblog plugin works great. Allows creation of posts from the user profile Blog page, and the Posts menu on that page shows all posts authored by that user.

    WordPress 5.3.2
    BuddyPress Legacy 5.1.2
    Blog Categories for Groups 1.3.1

    Hi Mark,
    I have tested the plugin now.
    It seems to be working correctly for me.

    Can you please share me the screenshots of your Blog Categories Settings page in the dashboard? Also, did you assign a category the post?

    Thank you

    Hi Mark,
    Thank you.

    Please visit Groups->Personal Evangelism ->Manage ->Blog Categories
    and check if the category “Personal Evangelism” is ticked?

    PS:- I am not sure what is in the last link. It is giving 404.

    Hi Brajesh,

    OK! That seems to have done the trick. Ummm.. Have you considered adding some instruction on the plugin page about the presence of a new Blog Categories menu item under the group Manage menu? How would someone know to go there and select the associated category otherwise?

    This does answer the question I would have asked regarding how the group posts are associated with a category! Please consider explaining this on your plugin page.

    Thanks! – Mark

    Hi Mark,
    Thank you for the update. I am glad it worked.

    I will make a note and update the documentation. Our assumption was that people will notice it while creating groups, but for existing groups, you are correct. They may not even notice it.

    We will update the documentation in next 2-3 days.

    Thank you
