    Is there a way to create separate registration links to separate groups? I want to create 2 distinct communities. Thanks!

    I’m unsure what you mean by this, clarify yourself a bit more.

    At the moment, no… Once registered, you’re registered, that’s it…

    From the sounds of it, you would need two different MU installations to pull off what you want to do. Or, if you’re talking about “groups” within BP, there is group moderation where people request to join a group, and moderators and admins can accept or reject them.

    I’m actually very interested in doing this too. JJJ, if the request we sent to join the BP install had a parameter like &groupid=34 then couldn’t the registration process for BP be able to handle this variable and it automatically join someone to a specific group? I ask since hopefully that variable could also be used to modify the registration page according to the group that invited them to join the BP install.

    Of course, it’s all possible if you hack the core, but can the registration process be modified like this using a plugin?

    I appreciate any direction someone can offer on plugins that have done something similar or which areas to look to try and make this happen.

    Sort of like a referral system?

    DJPaul,

    That’s the basic idea. So, people that have joined a specific group can email out their friends to come and join the same group directly. Essentially it would make the registration process unique to how the person was referred to the BuddyPress install.

    Kind of like on Facebook, when a friend invites me to be part of Facebook and I’m not a member, then when I sign up I’m automatically their friend. Of course, in this case I want a BuddyPress “group” to be added automatically. I guess it does also make sense to make the person requesting that I join my friend also.

    That’s the backend need.

    The front end need is to make the registration page a customized landing page based on who requested that you sign up to participate in the BuddyPress install.

    Both challenges, but I think the modification of the sign up process like I’m describing will open up some really interesting doors to innovation with BuddyPress. The key for Facebook’s success is getting people signed up. Modifying the registration page to increase conversions seems like a logical next step to making this happen. Just interested in hearing if other people have done it and where I might start looking to make these changes.
