Need to restrict my users to join multiple groups,

    Good day,

    I currently working on my office project. which is a website for managing a hackathon event that occurs every year. Our users will be in teams of 3 people and will be able to post about their project live on our website.
    Last year we did with hackerearth.com but this year our company hire me to build a website. Now I’ve used Buddypress for my website.

    Please find below the brief description for the site.

    1. The users cannot be part of two teams.

    2. Group size should be 3 members. If the group filled with 3 members no other users can able to join in the group.

    3. If a user already joined in a group he can’t able to create a group. If he left that group he can create a group.

    4. If a user created a group he will not able to join a different group or create another group.

    PS: For the second point I’ve used ‘BP Limit Members Per group’ it works fine. But still users can join multiple groups and I’ve also used youzer plugin.

    Please help me to resolve this.

    Hi there, another plugin to help you is https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-restrict-group-creation/ this will allow you to restrict members from creating more than one group.

    If I updated this to include a restriction based on the number of group membership then that would help.

    Looking at the code you’d also need to restrict the group join button showing so that it only shows for members not already in a group. How you do this depends on the BP Theme you are using, Legacy or Nouveau.

    you can add the following to your child themes functions.php file:

    add_filter( 'bp_get_group_join_button', 'venutius_restrict_group_join', 10, 2 );
    
    function venutius_restrict_group_join( $button, $group ) {
    	global $bp;
    	if ( current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) || $group->is_member ) {
    		return $button;
    	}
    	
    	$membership_total = count( BP_Groups_Member::get_membership_ids_for_user( $bp->loggedin_user->id ) );
    	
    	if ( $membership_total >= 1 ) {
    		return false;
    	}
    	
    	return $button;
    }

    Note that there is a flaw to this, if a user who has no group visits the groups page they will see they can join any group, if they click to join a group the other join buttons will still show until the page is reloaded, I’ll see if I can knock up a filter for this too.

    Hi there, I’ve taken a look at the code and there are no hooks that exist to allow you to prevent a member joining if they were able to press the join group button. What are the timescales for your project? You’d probably need to raise a feature request for this. It’s possible to do, but you’d have to introduce an unofficial filter into the BP source code.

    I’ve come up with a workaround, if we can’t stop them joining, after they’ve joined we can undo it:

    add_action( 'groups_join_group', 'venutius_group_join_filter', 10, 2 );
    
    function venutius_group_join_filter( $group_id, $user_id ) {
    	global $bp;
    	
    	if ( current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) ) {
    		return;
    	}
    	
    	$membership_total = count( BP_Groups_Member::get_membership_ids_for_user( $user_id ) );
    	
    	if ( $membership_total >= 2 ) {
    		groups_leave_group( $group_id, $user_id )
    	}
    	
    }

    Hello @@venutius,

    The above action is undo user to join group. If a user joined in a group it automatically undo it.
    ‘if ( $membership_total >= 1 )’ is not working. Please fix thanks in advance.
