How would I do this in BuddyPress?

    Hi Everyone,

    I’m very new to the BP world and am excited to be using this amazing tool to build a new community online.

    GROUPS:
    I want to use groups as a notification center, allowing members to comment/interact with the notifications. So what I need is for only group admins/moderators to be able to post to the group activity stream. Other group members can only comment and favorite these posts, but cannot make a new post to the activity stream. Is this possible?

    MEMBERS
    Is there a way to show a google map with pins representing the city/state/country fields that users fill in their profile? Would further like these pins to be clickable, displaying certain fields from a user’s public profile.

    Any help with plugins and coding for the above would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    Group posting by administrators and moderators only isn’t possible out-of-the-box. You’d need to write some custom code or find a plugin that can do that.

    @shanebp has been working on a geo-location plugin for BuddyPress which might be useful to you.

    Hope this info helps!

    @emeraldcity,

    i suppose you already read the codex, thousand of topics and of course, that you have some php knowledge. 🙂

    Groups
    Add following conditionnal to the what’s new form of the group activity page.

    bp_current_user_can( 'bp_moderate' )

    To do this, you need a child-theme and to overload the template file. The original file is here:
    wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/activity/post-form.php
    Copy it to child to get:
    wp-content/themes/child-theme-name/buddypress/activity/post-form.php

    Members
    See if these plugins can be usefull.
    Geo myWP or one or the other of @shanebp ‘s Geo plugins.

    Thank you Henry and DanBP for your input here. DanBP we’ll give this conditional a try and let you know how it goes.
