Group Page Styling & Assignment

  • Zimm


    So, a few questions of “how to” about groups, page styling, and assigning groups. I’m working on a Harry Potter/Hogwarts related project where each user would be in one of four houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff. I’d create each group and assign users to each group. That said, users can also create their own groups/clubs. So, I guess, I’d like to know if the house group can be their default group and make it to where they can’t change their default group but will still be able to access their custom groups forums and feeds per the norm.

    I’d also like to know if it’s possible to have a Profile Page layout for the user’s profile, dependent upon the group they are in. So, say all of then memebers of Gryffindor will have a profile layout with different styles and colors than those in Slytherin or the other two houses.

    Optionally, I’d like to create a sorting ceremony forum that’s a private forum, but not in the traditional sense. I’d like the posts to be hidden from everyone except the admins and the original creator. So if a new user is waiting to be sorted, they can go onto the board and only see their thread any anything that’s stickied. I’d also like to have a custom form for creating the topics in that specific board which will include selectable answers and will post to the thread when submitted. That said, replies would be normal.

    So, there it is in a nutshell. If anyone could offer some direction and assistance that’d be great. I’ve done a ton of google searching over the past week and haven’t found anything definitive. I appreciate any and all help.

    check if this plugin still works

    I’d also like to know if it’s possible to have a Profile Page layout for the user’s profile

    BuddyPress 2.6.0 has custom profile pages which is yet to have a stable release. you might want to test the beta out. Currently BP has custom group pages

    Regarding forums better to check out the bbpress codex/forums



    I’ve already done the create a group and add users to the group thing. The biggest thing I’d like to achieve is the different Profile Styling and layout for members of specific groups. That said, groups have the ability to have different avatars and stuff (rather than layouts) at least from what I’ve seen.

    I’ve asked a question recently on the bbpress forums and no one has tried to answer yet. It was different from the above. Figured it’d be best to have one thread answered before posting another as that place isn’t as active.



    Check custom group home page codex in current no and check custom profile for members in 2.6.0 bp
