Buddypress Teams?

  • Hey guys,

    I am looking to let my members create “Teams” that work the same as “Groups” do, I already have the core Groups feature in use and was wondering what would be the best way to do this?

    I have searched for plugins to make this possible but so far I havnt found anything that helps, would it be possible to duplicate bp-groups and add it in as bp-teams along side the core bp-groups?

    Yeah I tried it and was almost perfect for what I needed but I needed to limit the hierarchy so that only core groups could make sub groups instead of it being infinite.

    I did post on there forums but no replies with no luck :( I’m still learning WordPress and Buddypress and browsed the code but couldnt see how I would limit them.



    @vienem to do what your trying to do (essentially cloning the groups functionality and giving it a different usage) is quite complex (I’ve done it for another site of mine, and it wasn’t quick. Can’t share the code at this time though as It needs to be polished with some personal stuff removed).

    If you want to do it – I suggest doing it properly (I’ve seen sites trying to take shortcuts and to be honest, it never works) Look through the code in the bp-groups folder to see how the core developers have built the groups component, and using the Skeleton plugin ( to build it.

    Just my suggestions.

    I downloaded that plugin a while back but was starting to assume it was used to extend groups, what I have done is use Group Hierarchy and limited subgroup creation to top level groups only. Not ideal but should work for what I need so far, I will do what you have suggested though as I think it will be better in the long run to build it from the ground up. Cheers bro :)
