    Hello,

    Thank you for the useful plugin.

    Is there any way to force it to automatically create a category with the group name?
    The category list is a problem because it allows users to add their blogs just about anywhere – and some of those categories they are not even meant to see.

    Any tips would be appreciated!

    Hi Kristina,
    I have managed to write some code that creates a category with group name when group is created.

    What do you suggest for already existing group? should we check and create for them when user visits the blog tab?

    Hello Brajesh,

    Thank you very much for your attention.
    I guess it would be useful to add that function (for existing groups) for anyone else that may need this 🙂 For me though, it’s all going to be brand new

    Hi Kristina,
    Thank you.

    1. Please upgrade to blog categories for groups 1.2.1(It is required only if you want to disable the create step category selection screen & group admin manage screen for category selection)

    2. Please put the following code in your bp-custom.php

    Hi Kristina,
    You are most welcome 🙂

    Should we mark it as resolved then?

    Hi Kristina,
    I am marking it as resolved assuming the above code worked for you. If you need further assistance, please reopen it.
