Introducing BuddyPress Default Group Tab plugin

We are doing a 17 plugins before BuddyPress 1.7 series and here goes the third one.
BuddyPress Default Group tab plugin allows site admins/group admins on BuddyPress based social network to control the default landing page of any group.


  • Allow controlling the default landing page of a group

The good thing is, you can control which group has which component set as default landing page.

For example, In a group fashion, you can make the activity as the default landing page while in group education, you can make forum as the default landing page.


Does it work with BuddyPress Plugins using Group Extensions?

Indeed, it does.


Settings Screen:-

You can view this screen by visiting Individual Group->Admin->Settings Page

Example landing page:-

This is what happens when members is set as default tab.

Download & Installation:-

This is a premium plugin, so I am publishing some code that you can use to achieve almost same functionality. The plugin handles it in much better way and gives more flexibility but I want you to be able to use this feature even if you are not a Premium member on BuddyDev. So, here is the code which you can modify according to your requirements.

  • You totally rock.

    After code from another site broke many features, this worked straight 'out of the box'. Awesome. #deepbows #gratitude
