    Hi moefahmy,

    Just registered my first WordPress.org account since over hundreds of sites I’ve built in the past, hehe. I’m facing exact the same issue as you have. I seriously thought that BuddyPress would support features like this. In the wp-admin > Groups > Single Group, there’s even an option that says: ‘Who can invite others to this group?’, WHY is this option available but not ‘Which usertype can post to this group? e.g. Administrators, Moderators, Subscribers etc.’.

    Is there a plugin that anyone in this community is aware of which handles above feature? I really need a feature to assign posting permissions to users or userlevels…

    Hi max , the only solution i reached is controlling who can see the activities post form , showing and hiding it based on the current user role

    Hi moefahmy,

    That’s actually a clever solution to address this issue. The difference with me is that my customer needs a few specific groups to be restricted to only let himself post in it. But since only administrators like my customer needs to post I can target only the administrator role to view the post-an-update form, and hide them for every other user role. I can code something to make this only happen on the groups I want it to.

    Thanks for activating the bulb inside my brain haha, I really appreciate this solution. Well done!!

    I have similar need. I have one group that only the admins should be able to post activity. However, any member can like and comment on that activity.

    Is there a plugin now or tweak someone can share to achieve this? Hiding the post textbox if not an admin sounds great but not savvy enough to make change w/o some direction where to do it and some pseudocode.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Just a follow up. I got the method from this link to work and it hides the “whats new” form from non-admins on the group page.

    However, now I notice that users still get the group in their “Post in:” list on their personal activity page and can circumvent. So, trying to figure this part out next.

    Anyone know how to restrict that dropdown?
