    Hello,

    how can I attach a forum with a cateroty at the top to a bdp group ?
    As far as I know buddyPress only allows forum only to be attched and not category.

    So far a pre-sale question here.
    Does the plugin solve this ?
    Thank You
    Bruno

    Hi Bruno,
    I am sorry, I haven’t tried this setup for the plugin.

    You can most probably do it without the plugin.

    Visit Group->Settings and see if the forum in question is an option. If not, Please visit Dashboard->Settings->Forums and select the root forum for BuddyPress there.

    Then all forums should appear for selection in the group settings.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    WEll

    The point is that I have to do several private groups with each several associated forums. So it’s not a single root.

    For example a group of dentists with its members and its many forums on teeth, a group with doctors and their specific forums etc. There are also general forums accessible to all therapists.
    IF we summarize this would do

    Sitewide > Category general > Forum 1 / Forum2 …

    Buddy Group dentists > bbP Category dentists > Forum 1 / Forum2 …
    Buddy Group doctors > bbP Category doctors Forum 1 / Forum2 …

    Related post for forum category.
    https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/category-forum-linked-to-buddypress-group/
    https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/cant-add-category-forum-to-buddypress-group/

    The second solution works but you should be careful not to edit the group afterwards because it breaks the link between the group and the forum.

    Thank you
    Bruno

    Hi Bruno,
    I may be missing something here. Do you want a group to have multiple forums by associating the group to the parent/category forum?

    The plugin will not work for this scenario.
