How to add fields to group creation with Group extension API (please read)

    @alfredojp

    I’m pretty good with MySql but not so hot with PHP. I’ve spent two weeks trying to figure out how to add
    another field(s) to the group creation so that a few more fields would be standard for the groups (i already know about that plugin that lets group admin put in fields aftewards), hours and hours and hours on these same forums with little help. I ran across group extension API code ( http://codex.buddypress.org/developer-docs/group-extension-api/ ) but i have no idea how to use it. What do i add, and in what file do i put it in (functions.php, bp-custom.php) so that i can have group fields (at creation) for city, state, country and phone number.

    Any help in this is greatly appreciated.

    Great job @modemlooper @boonebgorges !! , Thanks a lot for very useful plugin
    btw. I had the same error underneath description as @alfredojp , then it showed first 4/5 fields and all fields below the field PHONE number disappeared , when
    trying to insert them again I got this :

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home2/dancersr/public_html/stripunity/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-groups-extras/bpge-loader.php on line 232

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home2/dancersr/public_html/stripunity/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-groups-extras/bpge-loader.php:232) in /home2/dancersr/public_html/stripunity/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 934

    so it seems that it conflicts with @slaffik Group Extras.
    When I have deactivated Group Extras I worked perfectly.

    When fully working how can I display all those fields ?

    I am running new clean test installation and have there both latest versions WP 3.21 / BP 1.5 and only 3 plugins together with @slaffik Groups Extras.

    second test after deactivating Group Extras was the same, so It doesn’t memorize all fields below the field “phone number” which sometimes doesn’t work too because after the saving it change the value into the value of the field above (WEBSITE), @modemlooper or @boonebgeorges if you want admin access to my testing site (www.stripunity.com – untouched brand new clean installation (latest wordpress & buddypress versions with 3 plugins in it) for your plugin testing purposes , I would gladly send you an password.

    The code that I posted above was written for a very specific installation. It was nice of @modemlooper to make it into a plugin, but it’s not really ready to be used widely. It’s meant to be used as a model for building something specific for your own site.

    What Boone said, I’m going to clean it up and make it more functional. So currently use it at own risk.

    I can’t thank you enough @modemlooper and @boonebgorges you have also been super helpful. I really have no need for the links so i took out line 9 all together and that error disappeared. I did however realize that when i create the group the information apart fromt he URL doesn’t stay saved and the all the information goes to a table int he database for group metadata. What do you think about a conditional statement that says if (first time run) then alter table wp-groups to add in more fields and then a good old INSERT INTO.
    else
    just an INSERT INTO (wp-roups)

    what do you think about that?

    I didn’t install it on a live site, so I am not risking anything , I am not a programmer so I try to help at least by testing, on my opinion this feature (groups custom fields ) is one of the most important features to most of Buddypress users, so thanks both Boone and Modemlooper for trying to help us.

    @alfredojp do not do that, you should be only saving group stuff to groupmeta and not creating your own db inserts.

    I’ve changed some of the code from Boone’s example so if you are not using the plugin link code could be the reason it isn’t saving.

    @modemlooper thanks for the advice.

    I am using the plugin link code you gave me, thank you here’s the link to verify:
    https://github.com/modemlooper/buddypress-group-fields/tree/master/buddypress-group-fields

    I see thtat its saving in the groupmeta table in the database but when i go to look at it in the group details itself it doesn’t show anything in those fields. Not to mention I need for it to be searchable. Please let me know what i can do to help to make this something that the community can use. I’m a quick learner ( i think hehe).

    Any ideas how to solve that? have a look yourself http://www.caradacapoeira.com

    If somebody interested I have modified @modemlooper buddypress-group-fields.php for my website
    I have deleted $links , so it doesn’t show WARNING , I have found an error in phone field so it works now and also other fields are memorized well , I have also added some new location and contact fields , I have created all 247 countries list (dropdown menu) – everything looks working well ,
    I don’t know how to display it in templates yet , Opening days(Monday , Tuesday , Wednesday ….) field I wanted to use checkboxes , but I wasn’t not sure if I was able to do that , so I have used dropdown menu now too.

    <?php
    add_filter( 'groups_custom_group_fields_editable', 'group_details_markup' );
    add_action( 'groups_group_details_edited', 'group_details_save' );
    add_action( 'groups_created_group', 'group_details_save' );

    function group_details_markup() {
    global $bp, $wpdb;

    $group_text = groups_get_groupmeta( $bp->groups->current_group->id, 'e2e_text' );

    ?>

    type=”checkbox”

    When I’m done with next version of BP mobile I’m creating a plugin that does what the profile fields does

    Thanks modemlooper , type=”checkbox” will not be enough I guess , adding the options works the same as for dropdown menu? I will study it farther , your little plugin works nice for me at the moment, I don’t need nothing else than the correct code to display those custom fields within the groups(groups-header.php) , if somebody can tell me the code for groups to display it for a public I would be very grateful :

    This is the code for the profile field “State” I use.



    State/Region:

    Custom fields for groups should work on similar basis I hope.

    php if ( $data = bp_get_profile_field_data( 'field=State' ) ) :

    State/Region: php echo $data

    php endif

    What did you do to the original code to make the entry save ?

    for me the only one that saves is URL

    At the bottom you need to add a check to the array

    ` $plain_fields = array(
    ‘url’,
    ‘phone’,
    ‘text’,
    ‘check’,
    ‘price’
    );`

    Then create your checkbox input

    `
    groups->current_group->id, ‘e2e_check’ ); ?>
    <input type="checkbox" id="group-check" name="group-check" value="1" />
    `

    @alfredojp this code below is working for me well (the same as above but exact PHP code without WP-BP destroying PHP codes) and is saving all my fields:

    http://pastebin.com/X2tn22ys

    download here:
    http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=X2tn22ys

    We only need to find the way how to display those fields publicly in groups-header.php.

    @modemlooper – Thank you for your checkbox code I will check it out tomorrow and if working I will implement it into the code above. Checkboxes will help me a lot.

    couldn’t you use the same basic technique as you would for displaying information for members int he profile header?

    That’s what I want to know too , I hope that displaying group’s custom fields is a similar as the displaying profile’s custom fields code in the members-header.php. I will study it further.

    This thread as been very very helpful for me in creating custom group fields especially with my inadequate php experience. @4ella have you found the proper way to display the extra group information that has been stored in the groupmeta database? Ive been attempting retrieving that information to display in the group header but I had no luck. I tried looking up how to retrieve the data but I dont quite understand how bp uses commands like get_groups_description instead of using $fields and ‘field name’ or $row..

    @untilthen5 my PHP knowledge is adequate to zero , so I didn’t find any solution , I was studying @slaffik ‘s plugin to find something what should help us to display those fields , with my PHP knowledge I gave it up immediately.
    Slaffik’s Group Extras plugin is great , even greater now with adding unlimited group pages, it miss only function to memorize the sets of fields for all groups (you should create for every single group those sets of fields over and over again , @slaffik promised to finish it too).
    boone’s & modemlooper’s code is very quick and for me perfect solution because I don’t need the sets of fields. I need only 1 set of 10-15 extra fields on first Group creation step page which will better describe every group . Fields thanks Boone and Modemlooper we managed to get to insert into database, so group admins should see them now , fill them out , but without displaying those fields for public is now at least for me unfortunately useless .
    It looks like displaying those fields in groups doesn’t seem so simple as we were thinking (the way of displaying the fields in profiles as we know is very easy). @modemlooper said after he will finish his other works he has also intention to finish this small but very useful plugin – I suppose he meant with displaying all those fields in the template so I am going to wait when someone of them will come with fully working plugin.

    now i found what i’m looking for, hahaha im having the same problem, adding new field in the group creation form. thanks @4ella :D , so what’s the progress here?, i saw @slaffik plug ins, and it’s really cool and useful in someway but we also need to put those fields in the creation form not just in the edit group form… :(
