Public group without allowing everyone to join

  • I am trying to set up a group where the public see the members, their profiles and their activities, but not allow anyone to join but invite by admin only. Is it possible to do that? Thanks.

    Hi, im interested to achieve the same thing… anyone have an idea? Or just hide the button for non members?

    If every group is going to adhere to this type of invite only status, you could just hide the Join Group Button with CSS:

    `a.group-button.join-group {
    display: none;
    }`

    The use Boone’s Invite Anyone Plugin to manage group membership

    isn’t that the same way private groups already behave?

    You can visit and navigate public groups; you can’t access private groups without becoming a member. I’m not sure how familiar you are with CSS, but you can drop that code in a CSS plugin. There is a WordPress.com CSS plugin that has been swallowed up by Jetpack, so if you use jetpack that works too.
