I have been trying to configure buddy press to allow my users to have a group blog. The thing is I cant seem to get it to restrict the post to the group categories.
Il try and explain.
I have a website with multiple groups on. Each group has an admin and the groups correspond to members who this admin is coaching.
I would like to enable the facility to let each member of the group post a blog in a category for their respective group.
As it is at the moment, I can either remove the categories option when posting a blog, or display it. but doing so gives them the whole lot. I don’t want them posting blogs to the news section of the website.
I’ve installed ‘Blog Categories for Groups’ ‘BP group blog’ ‘BP simple front end post’ and ‘BuddyBlog’ going on what ive read around this website.
The issue is this is something new to me, and I don’t know if I have thought too much into it and installed more plugins than needed.
Would someone be able to guide me in the right direction with this?
The short version is I want each group to have a blog category. Restricted to them, and I only want them to be able to post in that category. I don’t want to give them the option to select any other category.
Hope someone understands! many thanks,
Please follow the steps and let me how it goes
1. Configuring in Admin section. Please update Blog category for settings under setting menu.
2. Please find ‘Blog Categories’ menu under group’s manage tab from front-end and assign the category to that group.
Please Visit Group(Any group), Then click on its Manage Tab. Under Manage, you will see a tab called “Blog Categories”. If you don’t see it, Please click on the settings tab and at the top of the group settings page, you will see the option to enable/disable Blog Categories. Please make sure it is enabled. Once it is enabled, the Blog Categories will appear there.
Please do let me know if it works for you or not?
Thank you very much. I’ve found it now! one last question.
I notice when posting a new blog, I can tick the category I want. If I disable the taxonomy in the Blog Categories, will it automatically post to that category or will it just be uncategorized?
I just want to make sure that they can only post in that group.

Ravi will be away for the weekend. I will post the code tonight.
It is a quick fix and not any paid service.
