Add more fields to Groups page

  • First of all, you guyz rock! I find BP very impressive and extensible. I am considering BP for my web project, and I definitely want a few more fields to the Groups page. What would be the best way to do it.

    I can edit the Groups plugin, but each new release of the plugin will override my changes. Are there any hooks/filters provided for this purpose?

    In the docs, you mentioned about extending the XProfile component. Is there any such extension possibility to the Groups component?

    I look forward for your response. Thanks!

    Yes, all the components work the same way, so you can use the same code to extend the groups component.

    I’m in the middle of updating the docs, so I will be making this a bit clearer. I’ll post another reply when I’m done and point you in the right direction.

    Take a look at this page:

    All you need to do is replace:

    $bp with $bp

    This will let you add custom pages to the groups component.

    hello cosmican and andy or anyone really

    i am also really keen on adapting and adding fields to the groups component.

    I am just trying to learn and get my head around all the code. Sadly i cant quite find where to add the fields in the different pages.. i get to the create.php with this code..

    <?php get_header() ?>

    <div class=”content-header”>

    <ul class=”content-header-nav”>

    <?php bp_group_creation_tabs(); ?>


    <div id=”content”>

    <h2><?php _e( ‘Create a Group’, ‘buddypress’ ) ?> <?php bp_group_creation_stage_title() ?></h2>

    <?php do_action( ‘template_notices’ ) // (error/success feedback) ?>

    <?php bp_group_create_form() ?>


    <?php get_footer() ?>

    But then i cant find where to go to next. IE i cant find the page that has the fields on it to add in my own custom fields..

    i would also be keen to see how you did it using the replacement of $bp with $bp… did that work for you??

    I know this is all quite basic but i am trying to learn and use it for a major project..

    so basically any help on adding in new fields in the group section..

    My project is called spots kenya and i want to use the groups option as a kinda creat your own spot rather than group..

    i basically need to have a few more fields that would integrate a google maps api location tag and possibly a few more custom fields.

    Thanks so so much and i look forward to hearing from peoples reply..
