    Mine was actually called “examples”, I was using an old projects mockup as an example to not reveal the actual project I’m using this on..

    I’m going to have to write a tutorial, I looked through the project I was using this on and I had to make some various modifications to core code to get it to work. E-Mail me at hello@placementedge.com if I can use your installation to implement it on while writing a tutorial.

    Look at:

    Line 252 of wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core-template.php

    You can create a filter in function.php, or just hard code the search box (look at the HTML for the search bar, then replace the call for it with a call to template file, or edit the core code.

    Take a look at this topic:

    http://buddypress.org/support/topic/changing-group-tab-display-defaults/#post-55449

    I set a custom tab as the default for my internal collaboration system based on BP, can’t recall exactly how I did it but the above topic looks about right.

    It would make more sense for them to make a single blog post, or a forum topic, rather than groups. Otherwise, if users were tracking their recovering than I think it would be best not to use groups but to use their profile (updates regarding their recovery, achievements, blogs, milestones, etc etc etc)

    It works great. The only issues I encountered were with the group forums – though my extra groups don’t require forums so it’s a non issue for me.

    Update:

    After looking at the skeleton component, I essentially just copied all of the files in buddypress/bp-groups/ and did a find and replace of “group” to “vehicle” and worked through the errors. But in the end, I’ve ended up with multiple group components.

    Ah okay, I had been confusing the first one with the second. The BuddyPress Skeleton Component looks like the perfect starting place.

    Edit: looked through it some more. THANKS! This is perfect (just needs some updating).

    I created another test account on WordPress.org to test earlier (to see if I had been banned/blacklisted over here for some odd reason). Anyways, the test account is: DCraft11

    I just tested the account and it is still having the issue. Tested in Chrome, FireFox, and IE. I’m logging in using the admin bar at the top, hovering over “Anonymous”, selecting login, and using the dedicated login screen.

    I have a lot of experience with custom post types, but within BuddyPress I believe the group functionality would be better.

    Here is an example mockup:

    For the above functionality, it would make sense to use a custom post type and a custom post screen within a users profile. However, using a variation of groups would instantly give me:

    1. Ability for users to follow the vehicle (change members to followers)
    2. A blog for the vehicle (using group blog)
    3. Easy interface for users to manage their vehicles, I could quickly create admin pages for specifics (a page to specify capabilities, like range and speed, which would be used in the group listing page to filter vehicles)
    4. If a vehicle were a university project, multiple “owners” could be specified.
    5. I could use a task management plugin for vehicles

    I’m not doing anything with vehicles, but I thought this would be a great example of using a variation of groups. I could also get this functionality through multisite and user blogs, with each vehicle being a blog with integrated theme and custom admin panel to match the user profile, but that is much, much more work and a really heavy implementation. It would allow each vehicle to be a powerful hub, but that’s beyond what I need.

    Beyond that, I would also want to have groups used like on BuddyPress.org (Plugins vs themes), but I don’t want them to share a slug (/extend/plugins/ vs /extend/themes/).
