    This is something you can do in the layout manager though, via the tutorial I linked in your support ticket. You can edit the column layout, move blocks/widgets around. Editing the code isn't recommended as it can cause issues in site functions if you aren't familiar with Zend and SocialEngine PHP.

    However, if you choose to modify the source, you would be looking in application/modules/group and it depends on exactly what you want to do as to which file you would be editing. More info is needed.

    Well, I don't see an option for that, but maybe someone else is more familiar with SE Groups.  The SEAO Groups/Communities definitely will provide that though.

    You can do a lot of what you want just in the CSS. The page should be application/modules/group/views/scripts/index/browse.tpl but I do not have my local online atm to play around with it. The search box should be just CSS changes though.
