    Hi Jamie,

    I finally took the plunge and installed buddypress on my site – Two problems immeidately arose:

    1. I created a private group and asked one of my friends to register so that i could add her. When i tried to add her (as per your video) i got an error message saying basically that the user can not be added to the group. I tried with several more users and the same thing happens. Any suggestions?

    2. SPAM!!! Since i activated the plugin I have had too many spam registrations to count. I have akismet installed but this does not seem to help at all. Can you suggest an effective remedy?

    Much obliges

    Hi Stephen,

    This may help :)

    1) To be added to a group she must already be a member of the website

    2) Yes spam registrations has historically been a problem with Buddypress websites. Have you checked out buddypress plugins on buddypress.org to help with this.

    Hi Jamie,

    As far as I can determine she is already a member (she registered through the registration page that I created in buddypress) Can you think of a reason why I still cant add her to the group?

    I will check out the buddypress site for a soltion for the spam registration

    regards

    Hi Stephen,

    Not sure, it sounds like you are doing everything right. Suggest you post on the buddypress forum and see what comes back. Let us know if there is an issue :)

    Thanks,
    Jamie
