    Hi guys,

    Is it possible to add another “Groups” section to my Buddypress like “Books” or something like that. I mean, i want something like “Groups” with exactly the same functions. I am not an expert but am familiar with HTML, CSS, PHP and that kinda stuff.

    So, you think it is possible? If yes, Where from should i begin first?

    Looking forward to see your answers.

    Have a great day.

    maybe you could copy the groups component and change all the code to something else like

    swap out group for yournewcomponent

    You think then it will be possible to see a link like “Books” next to the “Groups” link on the front page? I mean copying the groups component is enough to achieve this goal? I have not got a installed version of Buddypress so i am not able to play with that. I just wondering whether this kinda something is doable or not?

    Thank you so much for your answer Hyrxx, it really made me relax. So, where from should i start first to do something like this? Does it take days to do this or can be completed in a day? Is there a ready plugin for this kinda something? Sorry for bothering you with lots of questions, i just am really excited about a project in my mind based on buddypress.

    looking forward for the answers,

    good days..

    i think its possible to create custom components using the skeleton component however it sounds like you want something a little more to build on, i tried replacing all instances of the word group to artist and groups to artists, to create my own artists component for bands and artists groups on my site, like myspace has myspace music/bands or watever,

    unfortunately it didnt work by simply doing this, im interested if anyone has any info on how we can duplicate and modify components,

    i might take a look at the skeleton component to see how that integrates a new component
