Group Plugins

  • I was just wondering if it was possible to integrate these widget/plugins into the groups.

    For instance, would it be possible to give a location on google maps to a group?

    Or perhaps there could be a collection of youtube videos associated with a group?

    Or a calendar listing group events?

    How would this be achieved?

    Thanks

    Hello Edeutsch,

    I think it’s not possible to have a calendar listing group events right now.

    I am also looking to integrate google maps with the groups so that some one can effectively geotag a group and it show up on a google map.. ??

    any thoughts…

    Developers should look at using the groupmeta tables and also check out the hooks page for groups in the codex. Also take a look at some of nicolagreco’s bpdev plugins.

    @Edeutsch,

    Erwin Gerrits is developing an event calendar plugin for BuddyPress that he says will include group events. As it is still in early development at present however, it does not yet contain the group events functionality.

    Regarding YouTube video’s perhaps a variation on Nicola Greco’s BPDEV-YouTube plugin could be created for use with groups.

    The simplest to add youtube for groups is asking Nicola on the BPDEV Trac http://bp-dev.org to improve bpdev youtube and integrate it in groups

    >For instance, would it be possible to give a location on google maps to a group?

    I made a plugin that allows group admin to put a mark on a mark and show the map on the group home, this plugin has also a map that with all groups marked in :)

    I’ve decided on a killer app for my new site. A Google Events Calendar for BP groups. Essentially, I want to have the group admin create a Google Calendar that sits on the group “home page.” The admin can create/edit events and invite attendees.

    This can be done now through Google Calendar and embedded in any site. http://www.google.com/calendar/embedhelper (it’s broken at the moment, but it works).

    What I’m looking for is a plugin that uses the Google Calendar API to use group member email to invite group members via Buddypress and accept and track their RSVPs via Buddypress.

    Users get all the benefits/upgrades to Google Calendar and we don’t have to reinvent the wheel (No offense to the BP calendar being created)

    The Google Calendar projects on .org seem a bit dead, but I’m hoping someone here sees the benefit in the BP context. I’ll of course do it myself eventually, but I’m still working on the basics of the site at the moment and I’m NOT a programmer (just a problem solver who wants to get something done)

    I’d at least like to know if someone else is taking this on so we can either colloborate or at least not duplicate work.
