    Hi, im using your greate pluging “BP Simple Front End Post”…thanks for do it ๐Ÿ™‚
    When the group administrator create a post (from the group) the post sow the title , content and pictures. I would like to show the name of the group as a link on the post…i was trying to add some code but i am beginer in php and dont find the solution…
    I find out at \buddyblog\template\buddyblog\single.php the code that show the post information…and y add the code:
    <a href="<?php bp_group_permalink(); ?>"><?php bp_group_name(); ?></a>

    But i didnยดt get exit…:(

    I think is because I must let it know which group was the one that created the post…but i not have any idea…
    Any help or guide will be very helfull.

    Thanks for all

    Hi Alejandro,
    Thank you for using our plugins.

    BuddyBlog does not allow posting to groups. Are you using blog categories for groups? If yes, we do store group id as post meta and can provide code to assist you with it.

    Regards

    Hi Alejandro,
    Thank you for the reply.

    You may use this snippet inside the post loop

    
    $group_id = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), '_bcg_group_id', true );
    
    if ( $group_id ) {
    	$group = groups_get_group( $group_id );
    	printf( "<a href='%s'>%s</a>", esc_url( bp_get_group_permalink( $group ) ), bp_get_group_name( $group ) );
    }
    
    

    That will show the link to the associated group.

    Regards
    Brajesh
