I love this group type plugin. In fact, my social network is organized around it. It organizes all of my social network groups into nice neat topic categories that look great on my site and make it easy for users to hone in on groups of interest. The support is awesome too - somehow my custom display settings got wiped clean (my site's fault) and support logged into my site and told me exactly what I needed to do to put things back the way I had them before. I should have caught it myself but they saw the issue and sent me a screenshot of exactly how the settings should look. I was grateful and impressed. Thanks!
