    Just released my first major plugin: BuddyPress External Group Blogs

    “Give group creators and administrators on your BuddyPress install the ability to attach external blog RSS feeds to groups.

    Blog posts will appear newest first, regardless of the blog in an easy to use browser with AJAX pagination.

    New posts on external blogs will be displayed on the group and new posts will appear on the group and site wide activity stream.

    Built using the new group extension API in BuddyPress 1.1″

    I could be wrong, but this is technically your second major plugin. ;)

    this is a great plugin. since I do not want anyone to create a blog with a group (so far users are only allowed to start their own group and blog registration is disabled): How could I – as admin – exclusively attach blogs to certain groups? Is there any way that only admins (of bp and not group admins) are allowed to create “group blogs”?

    Thumbs up…

    I wish that could be done for user profiles too…

    Thanks andy…

    @reinergaer Don’t confuse Andy’s plugin (which draws external blog RSS feeds into a group) with the under-development Group Blog plugin which adds full blogging functionality seamlessly into a group

    Plugin works fine. But a “little” bug occurs on SWA.

    Any activity string coming from the plugin and showing in side wide activity could be deleted by visitors or non logged-in users.

    The “delete” button is only viewable by roll-over, it takes me a few day to see this bug.

    Nice plugin…!

    Is there any chance to do the same way on members profile in the future?

    It would be great to give members the ability to attach external blog RSS feeds to their profiles.

    Since running the new 1.2 theme from the trunk this plugin no longer works, it works with the classic theme but I really miss it!

    Currrently the ajax loader just hangs, any chance of an update on this plugin, I miss it!

    Hi , Is there are a way to redirect avatar link to group page instead of sending the user to members page.

    When i am using External group blog. The posts coming from external sites have avatar of this group but the avatar link is redirecting to memebers page i want this to redirect to Group page. Where should i change the code.

    I´m using the external group blogs plugins since it was published. Since BuddyPress 1.2.7 there´s no activity avatar for the entries in the stream, only the small avatar for the group. Is there a chance to use the small avatar as activity avatar and link it with the group page?

    I was hoping I could get help with something…for some reason the posts dont appear in the activity stream of the group but do show in the streams of the users following the group, but all the posts from the blog’s history show up. Is there a way to only pull say 10 updates a day? @r-a-y

    Is there a way to show the group avatar in the activity feed when the plugin pulls a post from an external blog. It looks a bit unprofessional to have just a blank space there instead of an image.
