Import Group Names or Align with WP Categories

  • Great Plugin!!! Should be part of Buddy Press.

    Is there a way to have the Group Hierarchy automatically work with Word Press Categories? This would allow a new group to be created whenever a WP category is added and the Group Hierarchy to be aligned to the category hierarchy?

    Alternatively, if WP categories cannot be aligned to group hierarchy, is there a way to do a bulk import to set up the group hierarchy? The WPEssence Bulk Categories plugin does this for Categories. It would be great if there was a way to do a bulk import for group hierarchy.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, @snomo – there isn’t a way to do that right now. There isn’t currently a taxonomy for BP groups, and this plugin doesn’t create one.

    Keep an eye on this ticket for updates on taxonomy support: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4017

    In the mean time, you did make me realize there isn’t even a function to create sub-groups. I’ll add that to the next release.

    Great. Any ETA on the function? I could use this yesterday!

    Thanks!

    A new release won’t be out for a week or more; it’s undergoing major changes since support for BP 1.2 was dropped.

    If you want to grab the development version, the new function is called `groups_hierarchy_create_group`. It’s in the `bp-group-hierarchy-functions.php` file, and you can paste it into your theme’s `functions.php` if you want to use it right away. Just remember to wrap it in a `function_exists` check or you’ll get an error when the next version comes out.
