Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.

Is there any way to create groups on vanilla open sources forums.

I think vanilla disabled social groups plugin for open source forums and the only way is to use groups and membership plugin so the problem is when i enable membership plugin it says syntax error (unexpected') help please i need groups on my forum.

    Currently we have no working OS pendant to Groups of the hosted version. There have been attempts of realizing a plugin like that, and there are some code pieces floating around.

    I have urged the community to crowd fund such a plugin together as we have skilled developers around who could make it. But it never reached enough interest. But yes, it's still to be made as the need comes up ever once in a while and I think more communities could use it.

    There has been a start and it sounds as if it has even been much more than just "a start". Could you give some insights on this, @x00 ?
