The Social Network module introduces the notion of group topics. A group topic is a set of workgroups sharing something in common. Thus, creating a group requires that at least one group topic exists. Only users with full access permission can manage topics.

In order to create a new topic, open the page Services > Social Network > Topics. Click New Topic on the context toolbar. The topic creation form will open:

Note: the Workgroups menu is dynamic; its items are defined in the script .left.menu_ext.php. The code must properly resolve the group topic path and the group path:
$strGroupSubjectLinkTemplate = COption::GetOptionString("socialnetwork", "subject_path_template", "/workgroups/group/search/#subject_id#/");

$strGroupLinkTemplate = COption::GetOptionString("socialnetwork", "group_path_template", "/workgroups/group/#group_id#/");
