Auto-Add New User to a Particular Group Based Upon Sign-up Selection

    @donnacha

    I have a hunch that a substantial percentage of new users will initially be unsure, nervous or reluctant to get involved in groups.

    Is there a way to automatically add a user to a particular group based upon a selection they make during their sign-up?

    For instance, a user could select California as their home state and find themselves a member of the California group.

    I think that automatically enrolling users in at least one group, that is in some way relevant to them, would be a good way to nudge them towards participating in groups generally. They can, of course, leave a group but the idea is that it gives them a good starting point.

    Any suggestions on this?

    All I need is to be pointed in the right direction.

    I like this idea very much…

    I had the same question two months ago with an answer – sadly I didn’t quite get it. Maybe you do, and can explain it to me… :-)

    Thanks, Michael

    You should write a function that adds user to a group (using the bp-groups functions) and add it via add_action to the registration process

    i don’t know if the ID of the user is in $bp->loggedin_user->id while the user has activated the new account

    Thanks Nicola – but I can’t write that function… :-) That is my dilemma… Anybody wanting to do this?

    Does this idea get any implementation? Or it’s still only idea, does anybody know?
