    I just recently did a fresh install of 4.94p4.  And I'm unable to create any groups.  It doesn't show an error message it just refreshes back to the page.

    I do have some plugin's installed from Socialengineaddon.com

    I'm doing a reinstall, because I believe it's one of their plugin's that causes this issue.  I will report back my results.

    The issue was caused by one of their plugin's.  It's the Advanced Member/Search plugin.

    Here is what i did to resolve the issue.

    1. Reinstalled Social Engine
    2. Installed the base groups package
    3. Create a test group
    4. Put site in development mode.
    5. Added core plugin for their plugin's to work.
    6. Installed Advanced Member's plugin.
    7. Checked and confirmed that group creation is still working.

    For any 3PD, I would suggest you contact them first to provide them the opportunity to determine if it truly is a bug/issue and resolve the issue before posting a bug in a review.  IMHO that's simply a courtesy.

    @gs, agreed they should. My answer was in case they already did and weren't receiving assistance. I should have said that in my comment. Thanks for bringing it up.
