Group Types & Roles
I did a quick search about group types and it looks like this hasn’t come up yet. I basically want there to be a few different types of groups, e.g. normal user groups like we have now and then a special type for organizations (or even more types for different kinds of organizations). Advantage would be that we then could filter for one group type and display the returned data on the homepage for example.
Ideally I’d like to be able to give people the option to register as a normal user or as an organization. When an organization registers, they automatically get a group set up for them with some extra information to be filled out, like their adress.
Does anybody know of any component that does this or something similar? No point in reinventing the wheel! I guess I could assign different roles to the various group types and then show extra group profile fields depending on the role. I’d imagine there are plenty of hooks provided for such a case (I’ll have to look into that…).
Anyways, I’ll be glad for any pointers in the right direction!
