I'm having an issue with the Add Users sidebar widget. I'm (meaning, my students) not seeing the Add Me! button. I didn't listen to a conflict message earlier and now have removed some useful plugins in an effort to fix it. Is it the theme or a plugin conflict?

My site is and I'm the admin/instructor. Thanks in advance for the help.

I looked out of curiosity - it seems to be dead:

I've advised Prof. Shaw to use our invite portal, and gave her the nonCUNY instructions. She seems fine with it. Changing this to low priority.

Yes, the plugin appears to be abandoned. If the plugin isn't working, and since we have our Invitation tool, let's hide the old plugin from users: At some point in the future, we can evaluate whether it's worth removing from the Commons altogether.

Marilyn, there's also another option.

We added the ability for users to add themselves to a site in #11201.

The site admin can activate the "WP MS Request Membership" plugin and add the "Request Membership" widget to the widget sidebar.

Here's the ticket where this was implemented: View the last picture in that post to see the widget's settings. Other images in that thread include the admin settings page and the "Users > Pending" management page if the auto-join option is turned off.

Not sure if we added this to the documentation site or not.
