Have groups been hidden?

I'm not sure if something has changed but I can no longer find a way to navigate to groups.

I thought that previously, I'd click on the arrow by my name then select the classic dashboard from the list. From there, I thought clicking on that arrow again gave a fuller list including groups. Now, it gives the same short list with no link to groups.

Any ideas?

Indeed... previously we could find groups by clicking on our name on the top-right corner and then selecting "groups" from the drop-down box. Unfortunately, that seems to have been removed.

Does anybody know why this was changed?

If you click on the "All Groups" link from your Local Place page (click the house icon to get there) you'll be taken to the groups page.

We wanted to move all Groups over to the new tech stack but that code is too old and time-consuming. Instead we'll have a bigger button on your Local Place tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks for the quick response Merci... since you're here and thinking about "groups", can I ask when new groups will be available under the "related groups" section?

In Brisbane (and in some other cities) after the introduction of place pages, we set up a "Brisbane CS community" group that would potentially allow for the sort of longer, slower, more considered discussion between members that (hopefully) builds a sense of community.

However, that new group isn't currently visible from the front page since it (obviously) wasn't created before the introduction of place pages. Can you help?
