As a security measure, we have disabled being able to have an open alliance group. This would allow any members to get into any group and I think we all agree that cannot happen. Therefore, all alliances must either choose Approval or Invite.

Approval requires the member to make the request to join, and allows a group owner or moderator to approve the request. 

Invite is a private group and can only be joined by Invitation Only.

If the friend is not a member of the group you post to, the friend will NOT be able to see the "group forum" or any of the post on that forum. The forum available from your group is a "Private Group Forum" which only member of the group can participate.

Chances are you chose to have a "Private Group" which has made your group basically invisible to the site. The only way for you to get members to this type of group is to send out invites to the people you want to join. 

To make the site visible, you will need to edit the group and choose set the type to either "open" or "Invite". If you group was created under the Clans/Groups/Alliances, you cannot have an open group and must set it to "Invite". This is to keep anybody who does not belong to your team out of your rooms without permission.
