New Buddypress Groups design.. Group Hierarchy
Edit: This is meant to be a discussion of what you would like to see implemented by this plugin…
I have recently been working on a buddypress group types plugin which is coming along fine…. but I keep finding myself wanting to add sooo much more… I just don’t know whether some of these features belong as an extension to buddypress groups functionality or should be a core feature in the first place because without core hacking this “Plugin” is impossible to make without it running very slowly… So I want to ask everyone what their thoughts are about where I believe buddypress groups functionality should be heading at a plugin level and hopefully a core level..
I want site admin created and run groups which do not show up in a users profile as groups that they belong to…These groups are meant to hold a category of groups and sub groups extend from this category groups. Basically what I am talking about here is a kind of group hierarchy.
This is what it looks like…
Site Wide Group->Category Groups->Sub Category Groups
Site Wide Group
-Users automatically belong to this group
-This group is automatically created because it is basically your sitewide forums your site wide everything..
-This group is basically hidden as being a group…doesn’t show up in users profile, users can’t leave this group, it basically doesn’t show up as a group at all
-Has all the basic features of a group plus a groups page so the slug would look like example.com/sitewidegroup/category
-The groups page holds all of the Category Groups…
-This group is meant as a place for all users to interact with every member of the site..Part of the problem with buddypress is that their isn’t any side wide interaction it is all done within small little niche groups.
-Users also automatically belong to these groups
-This group is also basically hidden as being a group…doesn’t show up in users profile, users can’t leave this group, it basically doesn’t show up as a group at all
-Has all the basic features of a group plus a groups page so that the slug would look like example.com/sitewidegroup/category/category_name
-The groups page holds all of the sub groups of this particular category group…
-This group is meant as a place for users to interact that have similar interests of this particular category.
Sub Category Groups
-Users do not automatically belong to these groups they must be invited or join depending on the privacy level of that group
-Has all the features of a basic user created group plus plugins can be used to extend functionality depending on options set by the site admin…<-still thinking of how I want to go about this
