The BuddyPress Groupblog plugin extends the group functionality by enabling each group to have a single blog associated with it. Group members are automatically added to the blog and will have blog roles as set by the groupblog admin settings.

Features:

  • P2 integration and frontend posting.
  • Admin can set Template specific groupblogs.
  • Allow group admins choose the desired template page themselves.
  • Full blog theme integration. The included bp-groupblog theme mimics the group pages.
  • Automated blog registration at group creation stage.
  • Bypass default blog validation to allow dashes, underscores, numeral only and minimum character count.
  • Blog privacy settings are initially inherited from group privacy settings.
  • Group members are automatically added to the blog.
  • Blog roles match group roles as set by the group admin.
  • Solid error checking that the blog follows validation.
  • Group admin tab to access the group-blog settings.
  • Blog themes will have the ability to pull in group info and create a theme that could resemble the group exactly.
  • Leaving the group will downgrade the member role to ‘subscriber’.
  • Allow the group admin to select one of his/her existing blogs.
  • A new ajax backend.
