Re: Soon to release bp group control plugin
Right now my plugin doesn’t distinguish between different types of groups. But maybe today I will add an option that will let you enable different features in private vs public groups. The buddypress guys are working on a taxonomy system for groups that gives you more options than just private public or hidden, but that maybe a ways off. Sounds like you only need two types of groups right now anyway.
There’s nothing that will prevent normal users from joining a group in the usual way. You can set it so that they can set the group as “identifying” (with the group name next to their name) or not.
Seems like it shouldn’t have any conflicts with the privacy plugin, but I’ll have to try it out to be sure.
