    Does anyone know of a way (or plugin) to link a blog directly to a group meaning there is a link on the group page which will take you to a blog only group members can access? Similar to the way forums are linked to groups currently utilizing bbPress.

    I have a client that wants to post video and images and currently the only solution I know of is to create a blog for each group where they can post media. However if there is no way to link the blog to the group the users won’t know the blog exist.

    You’ll have to modify the group theme templates to display your ‘group blog’ link someplace and then you can use (blatant self-serving recommendation) http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-community-blogs/ to allow automatic registered user status for all members of a group on a specific blog.

    I have been working on getting something like this going (without the group blog plugin) by simply placing a link to the group blog in the group description. You can see what I mean at http://chicagopsychology.org/groups/cognitive-science. It is just a regular html tag within the description text, and it renders perfectly on the group page.

    The only problem with this is that the link gets escaped on main group listing page (http://chicagopsychology.org/groups ), which breaks the link. I’ve gone through bp-groups-templatetags.php to add stripslashes() to any of the functions that didn’t seem to already be using it, but no change–not sure if this is because of object caching, or because my changes had no effect.

    Anyone know what I could modify to remove the escaping from the description text on the main group listing page?

    Bump. Anybody?
