Thank you for the reply! I have tried to couple the plugin with WPMU’s “New Blog Template” plugin that copies content from a currently active sub site on the network. This seems to be working to allow new sites to allow group creation without a super admin saving the BuddyPress component settings page… but I will need to do a little more testing to make sure it is working 100%.
But still no users, I look forward to hearing what you dig up Brajesh! I appreciate the help!
UPDATE: So I did find this thread -> https://buddydev.com/support/forums/topic/multi-blog-plugin-there-was-an-error-saving-the-group/#post-199
and the solution was to visit the subsite as a super admin and save the component settings page under settings -> BuddyPress
This worked to create groups, butr there are still no users showing on the members page.
And this solution worked this once HOWEVER this wont work in the long term as subsites are created by the user on my site and I cant visit the newly created site and save the component settings page on every new site created. Is this something you need to do to fix existing subsites before the BuddyPress Multi Network plugin is installed or is this going to be an issue that remains on each newly created site?
