Unable to add users to any groups

Logged in as admin, there is no add user function for any groups. But I am sure there used to be. How could this become invisible?

Discourse version 2.5.0beta2.

Have you tried safe mode? Do you have any non standard plugins?

Let me modify that in the light of further looking. I can add members to a newly created group, but not to group ‘staff’. Which begs the question, how do I promote a user to staff status?

[I do apologize for these very basic questions, only arising though what i think is a lack of an admin guide (is there one?)]

Yes, there’s a basic guide topic in the staff category that comes with every Discourse install. The trick is getting people to actually read it :rofl:

To add a staff member, visit the admin area of their user profile and click the “grant moderator” or “grant admin” buttons. Staff, in Discourse terminology, means you are either a moderator or admin.
