BuddyPress Default Group Tab

BuddyPress default group tab is a simple plugin that allows site admin/group admins to control the default landing component/page of a BuddyPress Group.

Features:-

  • Allow controlling the default landing component/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.

Faq:-

Does it work with BuddyPress Plugins using Group Extensions?

Indeed, it does.

Screenshots:-

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.

Permissions:-

By default, site admins and group admins can change the tab. If you want to limit the tab change to certain roles, we have a filter for that. You can use the filter ‘bp_default_group_tab_user_can_update_tab’ to limit it. The attached callback will receive the current permission(Boolean) and the user id.

 

Here is an example where we restrict it to siteadmin only.
