Re: Question about Forums vs. Groups
At risk of confusing matters there is also this possible approach:
on the group directory page change the avatar and group name permalinks to point not to the /group-name/ i.e ‘Home’ screen but to the /group-name/forum/
<div class=”item-title”><a href=”<?php (!bp_group_is_forum_enabled() )? bp_group_permalink(): bp_group_forum_permalink() ?>”><?php bp_group_name() ?></a></div>
That does mean though that links to the group that might appear around the site i.e in the activity stream will not be affected and continue to point to the ‘home’ tab/screen, a good or bad thing depending on ones viewpoint?
