Couldn't find it anywhere - is there a re-installation guide for updating the GroupJive components? I've got b4 installed now and I'd like to upgrade to the 1.8 RC1.

Well, I did piece together how to uninstall/reinstall.

You've got to uninstall both the component in the Joomla plugins section and the plugin in the CB plugins section.

But, are any of the devs checking these forums still? Putting a sticky at the top of the forums for some of the FAQ questions (like install instructions, most common how-tos) would be great...

Yes, we're still here. It works the same way all extensions or plugins function. This is basic Joomla procedures; please see for details or review CB documentation (available to document subscribers) for install instructions for CB Plugins. You can uninstall then reinstall or unpack the files and copy, paste, replace. ;)

I searched all over for this. I was glad to find it. Some components allow you to install over them without having to remove them. I was afraid to uninstall the component because I didn't want to lose all of my groups (I didn't, of course).

I'm having a problem upgrading the group after all, even when I thought it had been upgraded.

My version for the GroupJive component was saying 1.8 b5 even though I had installed the 1.8 RC version. I figured there was some error in the version displayed so I ignored it until I got the response in this thread:,com_joomlaboard/Itemid,38/func,view/id,126406/catid,105/

I followed the instructions in the readme.txt file in the GroupJive install file to make sure I was doing everything properly, but am still getting the version information displayed as b5.

Steps I took to uninstall/install were:

To upgrade GroupJive please:

1.) GO TO the Administrator module (backend) of your Joomla installation
2.) UNPUBLISH all existing GroupJive menu links from Joomla menus
3.) DELETE all existing menu links from Joomla menus
4.) DELETE the GroupJive CB Plug in (if it exists). This will also delete
the GroupJive CB [tab]
- GO TO Installers > Components
- Select the GroupJive radio button (o)
- CLICK Uninstall button (top right)
6.) Use your FTP file manager to to confirm directories/files are gone [all files in the admin and component sections were deleted]
7.) INSTALL "new" com_groupjive component


Any suggestions on how to fix this? We're supposed to open this up to outside users very soon, so I need to get this working quickly.
