Re: New Buddypress Groups design.. Group Hierarchy
About your comment in the original post: “… still thinking of how I want to go about this.”
How about preserving the present group structure as sub-category-groups, but, during group creation, have users select a category from amid a selection preset by the superadmin? This way, the user-created groups could be added to a category directory of related groups in the same sub-category, with links to other categories in the site-wide group.
Then, rather than showing “All Groups” and “My Groups” in the group directory item-list-tabs, they could read “Sub-Category A”, “Sub-Category B”, “Sub-Category C”, and so on, ending with the ever-popular “My Groups”.
