How To Show Groups That Only You (Or a User) Has Created (Not Joined)

  • David Bisset


    I’m trying to modify things slightly so that the main groups tab only shows groups that the user has CREATED (not joined, as I believe is the default).

    I’ve looked at bp_has_groups (both the function in the code and the docs) and there aren’t any filters for this. I don’t have a problem duplicating functions just to add this, but this request doesn’t look straightforward to me. In fact, quite messy. I want to use BuddyPress’s functions and not create my own because of the built in pagination, etc. Any suggestions or recommendations?

    You could strip it down to just groups that the person is an admin of with

    `if( !bp_group_is_admin() ) { continue; }`

    However, that wouldn’t adjust your counts/pagination.

    Yeah, I thought of that – although I didn’t think of bp_group_is_admin so your way is better than mine – but the count/pagination is the killer. Actually, just the pagination is since I could come up with the count easily.

    Still playing around, though. Thanks Ron for helping me refine what I had.

    Followup: I have created a trac for this. Thanks to @boonebgorges and @pgibbs for the suggestion.

    rich! @ etiviti


    interim – what about filtering on bp_has_groups and unset the items? (and readjust the count)

    `function new_group_is_admin_loop( $user_id = 0 ) {
    global $bp, $groups_template;

    if ( empty( $user_id ) )
    $user_id = $bp->loggedin_user->id;

    $groups_template = BP_Groups_Member::get_is_admin_of( $user_id );
    …or something similar? Untested so your mileage may vary.

    Chances are this won’t work, thinking back on it now. But, give it a shot. At the very least that function will return back the groups that the user is the admin of; you may need to do your own custom loop functions afterwards.
