Groups Extension

    Hi Brajesh,

    I have been looking to extend the Groups function with this plugin:
    https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/buddypress-groups-extras

    The issue I have, the author seems to not be supporting this plugin. I played around with this plugin on my test site, and it seems to add much needed functions to buddypress groups.

    I run a gaming community website and I would like to extend the Groups feature to allow more control over an individual group for the group creator/mods.

    I’d basically like to make it so buddypress groups can be used as a place for gaming clans/guilds to go to make a mini community within my community (if this makes sense)

    Would you recommend this plugin or would you suggest that I add features as I see fit individually? I just want to use something that will have an author that will maintain their plugin.

    Thanks for all you do!

    Thanks Brajesh! I really appreciate it.

    I was using it on my test site and was curious how a user could build a page layout without breaking the responsiveness of the site? Currently it seems they can only use the visual editor that comes with wordpress for writing articles. Is there a way for a user to be able to design an actual layout for a page with this plugin?

    Hi Joshua,
    That will be difficult. Since this plugin is mostly aimed at providing data, I do’t believe A user can design the page with this plugin.

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks for the information. I’m not sure this will do what I’d like it to.

    Ideally, I’d like my group owner/moderators to be able to add pages to their groups, which they can also add/delete from the navigation menu. It would be nice if they could do this like I can do with the visual composer feature to help them design their pages, and it would also allow the group pages to remain responsive.

    Hi Joshua,
    I am sorry but I don’t think that you can use visual composer with this plugin.

    It is a nice plugin, but seems it may not fit your requirements.
