I am using the Pods plugin, which I highly recommend by the way. I am building relationship fields, relating my pods to various entities within WordPress.
Unfortunately, this does not include BuddyPress Groups.
I suspect this has to do with the BuddyPress metadata, but I don’t understand the topic well enough to be able to fix it. I assume this will be addressed at some point in an update. Any suggestions as to how I might be able to proceed in the meantime would be greatly appreciated.
It’s a shame these workarounds are necessary, but I have managed to link them together by targeting the sql table directly. All I’ve done so far is create a field in each node to hold a Buddy Press group slug.
There is still the matter of creating a Buddy Press group automatically every time a node is created. I just need to spend a little time studying the Buddy Press code, so I’ll be able to use it’s own native functions to do that.
