Inviting to Groups

Waterford_Man says:

To invite to groups you need to go into the actual photo again as otherwise if you are an admin of multiple groups it selects the default first one on your list again as opposed to the one you are trying to invite to.

This was an issue before but was fixed, seems the glitch is back.

Where are you inviting "from" if it is not from an actual photo page? I'm asking because that is the only way I know how to invite photos. (And if you're not on a photo page, I'm curious which photo(s) are you attempting to invite?)

Ok ... thanks to a private message I've realized invitations are possible via the little [+] symbol on the thumbnails in places like photostreams and Explore.

But now I'm curious what you mean by "it selects the default first one on your list". When I tried this in a few places, it actually just shows the whole list of groups. No group is "selected" although they are simply listed in alphabetical order. I can either scroll down the list, or I can type in the filter box to shorten the list (and then -- did you know? -- you can use the arrow key to move a selection down the list, and then ENTER to confirm the choice).

Are you saying that this box used to "remember" a previous group to which you had been inviting other photos?
