    Hi, I would like to know how to add “created by ‘id user’ ” to the title of every group in the Groups Directory Page.
    Is there a way to that? I can’t undestand which code i have to edit.
    Should I create a custom php file?
    Thanks in advance for your support,
    Simo

    The one who creates the group is the Group Admin. So the easiest way to set up what you want would be to copy bp-default theme’s group-header.php file from http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/1.5.5/bp-themes/bp-default/groups/single/group-header.php into your child theme folder following the directory structure.

    Open up group-header.php and change
    `

    `
    to
    `

    `
    and save file.

    Thank you so much. I’ll follow your advice, but this is the Group header when you are already in the group page. What if I want to display the “Created by” after the Group title in the Group directory?

    Ok I understood I have to create the file “goups-loop.php” in my child theme. I succeed to add text and other lil things, but when I try to add “created by” and the user id of the group admin or his avatar, I get: “Created by: no admin” Can anyone help me? Which code should I use to get group admin name or avatar?
    I also tried to add this code in “goups-loop.php”:

    But it gives me error. If I change “creator_id” with any other Class it works perfectly (id; name; slug; description; status;….).
    Thanks in advance

    That’s a slightly different question than the opening post suggested, but you can try something like this (doubtless there are better approaches)

    `
    // Somewhere before the groups loop ‘while’
    <?php
    global $groups_template;
    $group_detail = $groups_template;
    ?>
    // In your group loop li element somewhere you can do

    Created By: <a href="group->creator_id) ?>”> $group_detail->group->creator_id , ‘width’ => 80, ‘height’ =>80))?>

    `
    I’ll leave you to work out how to fetch the members name :)

    edit// for completeness I’ll add – although it was really a lesson for the class – the name
    `group->creator_id) ?>`

    It’s actually a useful little snippet and could do with being turned into a function to use in groups loop and single group screens

    thank you Hugo, I hope I did exactly what you said and now I see Created by:
    It doesn’t get the avatar or name…. :(
    This is the code. I’m really sorry to bother you and I really appreciate your help.
    `<?php

    /**
    * BuddyPress – Groups Loop
    *
    * Querystring is set via AJAX in _inc/ajax.php – bp_dtheme_object_filter()
    *
    * @package BuddyPress
    * @subpackage bp-default
    */

    ?>
    global $groups_template;
    $group_detail = $groups_template;

    • <a href="”>

      <a href="”>

      Created By: <a href="group->creator_id) ?>”> $group_detail->group->creator_id , ‘width’ => 80, ‘height’ =>80))?>

      /

    `

    You need to move the global and variable to after the `if(bp_has_groups(bp_ajax_querystring( ‘groups’ ) ) ) :` line as that sets groups in motion

    try
    `<?php
    global $groups_template;
    $group_detail = $groups_template;
    ?>`

    Now How to get the avatar to the right of Created by: ???

    tried
    `ul#groups-list.item-list li img.avatar {
    margin- left: 100px;
    }’

    but it shoves the whole lot to the right.

    Thanks for this tip in any event

    @valuser thanks, good spot missed that lack of php tags completely assumed they would be added :)

    @monchibord you need to add php tags around those first two lines – sorry I made the assumption they would get added.

    @valuser sounds as though you have styles conflicting if you are calling BP default styles then you need to kill the float:left on avatars so add a new class to that avatar ? ‘group-creator’ or better still add that as an id to the paragraph tag or whatever tag wraps the text and anchor and amongst other styles add ` #group-creator img.avatar {float: none;}` but you may need to play around a bit to find the right rules to override.

    Many thanks @Hugo.

    `
    and
    #group-creator img.avatar {float: none; margin-top: 2px;}

    appears to work for me.
