    Sorry guys, Blizz has now officially removed this capability from Classic and restricted API access... Too bad

    If you hit "O" it brings up the same menu.

    Well stop trying to create retail features in CLASSIC, We didn't have x-realm chat in Vanilla, we didn't have LFG/LFR in Vanilla, STOP TRYING TO CREATE THESE THINGS IN CLASSIC.....
    It makes no sense!!! It will just get removed and the hard work to code/program it just goes down the drain.

    You know what we did have? API features that allowed automation. Blizzard took that away. Why is it ok for blizzard to strip features that we had in Vanilla, but it's not ok to bring modern features _on the modern api_ to classic?

    lol why are you on this website that is talking about bugs and "exploits"? You might as well stop looking here since pretty much every exploit is unintended and makes the game playable in an unintended way, kind of like Communities in Classic.

    Definitely still works. Not sure why you removed it ^^ The tab stays on the normal social menu even if you close it, after it's been opened once. Relogging or reloading the UI removes it until opened again though. ElvUI users can just click the "guild" text under minimap to open it.

    Mind sharing how this is done? Also confused why this was removed, fixed or not.

    I don't remember what the original post used, but "/run ToggleFriendsFrame(5)" works for me. You can also click the guild thing on the minimap if you use ElvUI

    I am not sure I understand. /run ToggleFriendsFrame(5) just opens the blizzard groups for me. I was able to open communities UI since the day one via normal means.
