adding users to groups

How do you add users to groups?

I'd like to setup some groups to test this functionality but there's no option on the groups page to add users to that group. And the "add group" link on the user detail page doesn't seem to do anything and I don't see any javascript errors or anything similar.

I should add I'm using the latest code (pulled today) from the github repo

Yes - this is broken currently, as well as removal from groups.

Bummer. Do you maintain a ticketing system where stuff like this is tracked with more bug-ticket type info? I'd be happy to try and help!

Here we have the ticket:). Question tagged bug without solution, not tagged "done" or "fixed". Please take a stab at it, if you like. You will need to get familiar with the way we write javascript code, if you decide to contribute, I ask you to please maintain that method. It is more or less documented in askbot/media/js/utils.js, function called TippedInput. We use a specific pattern for constructing js widgets.

Cool. Thanks for the info. FWIW, I've also posted my thoughts on a bug tracker in

The pattern allows to compose widgets - i.e. make one out of several others, possibly nested and possibly by subclassing, it's similar to what Google Closure does, but mixed with jQuery.
