Thanks Ravi! absolute legend!
One more small question. If I wanted to move the ‘community’ link into the top level of the menu next to ‘Activity’ ‘Profile’ and so on?
My intention is to set it as a top level link, that when a member goes to that page the default view is the ‘community’ page. Just so my members don’t need to click about too much really. Id like it to be the first thing they see. I’ve learnt how to change the default component loaded so that’s not a worry.
I was just wandering which part of the code you posted I would need to alter to achieve this.
Many Thanks Ravi,
Thank you for your speedy reply. Its appreciated. I’ve read through that topic and it looks like the person there was wanting to move a menu item. I’m trying to add a new one.
I’m really struggling to change the default forum feed in the activity section, so I thought if I do away with that feed and added a custom page with the BBPress shortcode in there and then link to that page instead. Seemed simple enough until I started trying to add the link. If that topic you posted will do what I want then thank you very much, il read through it all again and see if I can get it to work.
I just wanted to check it will do that before I spend time trying to fix it. My PHP is probably < novice level at the moment which is quickly becoming and issue haha!
Thanks Ravi, hope to hear from you soon.
The second option seems like the best, as I don’t want the members to be able to post In the wrong categories.
Would it help if I explained what happens on the website? Basically…..
It is a golf website where someone can sign up for lessons, the lessons are held across the country by different coaches.
What happens at the moment is when a new member signs up they are put into a ‘love.golfers’ group and a group for their relevant coach, we’ll call it ‘phils group’ for now.
As I say each coach has their own group and eventually we would like to add a lot more coaches, so as the list gets bigger the more likely it will be that someone could end up in the wrong category.
What I would like is for these members to be able to post in their respective groups but also make it impossible for them to select the wrong category.
The idea behind the groups blogs is that the members can communicate with the coach and each other in a private environment so they can ask for help and et cetera.
Sorry if I’m confusing things more. I think the second option would help the most even if it means waiting for an update to the Blog Categories plugin. It shouldn’t cause too many issues now as the website is still relatively new.
Many thanks Brajesh
I really appreciate this code, however I would need to be able to auto select the category based on the group they are in. How would that work? I’m afraid my PHP is not very good and I’m not sure what I would need to edit in order to do this.
Thanks for your patience Brajesh
Thanks for the code I just have a couple of questions.
Will this auto select the correct category for each group? or just the one category based on the ID?
I have users who are put into groups depending on who their coach is. And I would just like them to automatically be posted to the relevant group.
Also where would I find out the Term_id?
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.
