Actually I had Andy. Thanks for replying to me here. However, while I did read it, it didn’t give me much to go on as to the various function calls / syntax etc. Nor did I see any relevant information on as to if I need to add fields to the BP groups table in the DB. This is helpful for a skeletal BP Groups extention but it is still to vague for me to truly understand the ins and outs of how to use the API or know the details of the API functions. (syntax, return values, WHY to use one and not another,etc.) Again, thanks though for getting back to me.
Andy, I’ve used your code example to create a skeletal group extension class, however where exactly does this file go now that it’s created? I placed it the home plugins dir of my WP installation but no new step shows up in my group creation process. Where exactly should I place this new file I’ve created to extend the group creation class?
Do anyone have any input on my question above? I’m still trying to figure out WHERE the class extension extension file is to be placed within the folder structure of a WP / BP site? Thanks for any input.
You should make it a plugin, then add this to the plugin and activate. If you’d like to see a working implementation then check out these plugins:
You should be saving extra group information as groupmeta:
bp_groups_update_groupmeta( $group_id, 'name', $value );
Excellent Andy. Thanks so much for getting back to me. I’ll continue forward. I appreciate you taking the time to get back to me and assisting me with this endeavor. I’ll keep you apprised of how it goes and provide you some feed back on the experience when it’s complete.
