Removing options for private and hidden groups

    Hi,

    In the privacy options on the group creation page, I’d like to have the private and hidden group options taken out, as I only want users to have their posts public. How would I go about doing this?

    I’m on WordPress version 4.5.1 and BuddyPress version 2.5.2

    Create a template overload of this file:
    buddypress\bp-templates\bp-legacy\buddypress\groups\create.php

    Then, in your template overload, remove the html for the Private and Hidden options.

    I’ve tried doing that and removing everything related to the Private and Hidden options, but it hasn’t changed on the group creation page, still exactly the same.

    Is your edited file in the correct place?
    It should be here:
    .../wp-content/themes/your-theme/buddypress/groups/create.php

    Yes, just doubled checked, it’s in the correct place and the private and hidden groups are still there.

    Some themes include BP files.
    To see if that is the case with your theme, try switching momentarily to a WP theme like 2013.

    My theme doesn’t seem to have any BP files, although I’ve found another create.php file in the themefolder > blogs folder, it’s completely different to the one I’ve been working with. Could this be a conflict with the BP one?

    I’ve found another create.php

    Make a small change in it and see if it is visible.

    I had a go at making a small change, and it didn’t seem to do anything.
