Our group has a closed membership policy. The documentation says there should be a "Join Group" button on the landing page but there is only "Your Account" and "Member".

I realise that people can go through the member button to join Voice and then find the group to join but this seems unclear and cumbersome. Is there a direct "Join Group" function?

Thanks.

I may be confused, but the "Your Account" appears when YOU are logged in.  If you are a normal punter who has just found your page then you see Login and Join Website buttons.  As you should see when you logout?

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your comments. I may be confused as well!

Your are right about the Login & Join Website buttons appearing if you are not logged in (unless the group is private when only the Login button appears in the page footer).

The documentation mentions a "Join Group" button (see https://cambridgeopensystems.com/documentation/community/administering/users/) which I'd hoped streamlined the joining process, but I suspect it is just that the button is actually called "Join Website" not "Join Group".

Thanks for again,

Nick
