Re: how do i disable members from creating groups?
only problem with removing the link:
<?php echo bp_get_root_domain() . '/' . BP_GROUPS_SLUG . '/create/' ?> someone could still access the url directly to start the process.
I went ahead and created a plugin (waiting on repo request on wordpress.org) to disable the steps and show a ‘new groups creation is closed’ message. Also added in a midlevel-cap to allow another set of users the ability to create private/hidden + w/forums. I may expand this to restrict other steps in the group creation process (as other plugins using the group extension api may add in their own step)
Basically the plugin removes the $bp->groups->group_creation_steps – adds in a custom position 0 step to display a closed page.
