Question Xenforo 2 timeline

#1
Hi @truonglv,
can you tell us what the timeline for xf2 compatible version of Social Groups is? I'm starting to make my plans for upgrade and it seems that SG is the only missing piece for my first upgrade trials...

Thanks

If you need a beta tester I’m here :D
Yeah. I have an issue about the forums and threads for group. As you see the version for XF 1. Many issues about thread, also if you have thousand groups then you might have thousand forums. It's terrible until you don't want to use this add-on anymore. I still don't found the best way t0 implement it.

How about this:
  1. Create a forum category: Social Groups. Sort order: 10000
    Put all group forums in this.
  2. Give all Group forums minimum sort order of 10000. If a group has sort order 20 now, then change that to 10020. If it is 130 now, then change it to 10130.
  3. For all groups forums: do not show in node list. But make a function to do show in group node list.
  4. If group forum name = 'group discussions' then change the name to [groupname] + forum

Agree, something like this would work. SG is too disconnected from the main forums as it stands right now. Getting people to jump into social groups is a challenge unless we have some exposure on the forum list.

This is actually the opposite of what I am proposing: 'For all groups forums: do not show in node list'.
But you can already expose your groups on your node list by using widgets.

Implemented in next version of this add-on for XenForo 1.x
