I'm trying to create a private group in Drupal Commons. It is my assumption that one follows open, public groups.
However, I've marked a few groups as private using the default roles and permissions. I anticipated seeing a Register option for that group.
I guess I'm trying to create a moderated group where the user is approved by the group owner. How does this happen?
I'm also seeing that Commons Groups may be interfering with the group permissions by graying out the Member subscribe only with the approval option (drupal ticket link).
In the group field settings, I have the following fields attached to groups and content types.
The group settings for one example group I wish to make private are the following.
However, while masquerading as authenticated user, I still see the Follow button. I would expect to see a Register for this group option.
