To Come Eventually

  1. The ability for group Admins to be able to add up to 4 more ad hoc areas by choosing number of ad hoc areas from a drop down..
  2. A menu under the buddy press menu in the website admin for this plug in. There would be the ability for the site admin to set the text 2 welcome screens. One welcome screen is for the group admin who just started the group and the other welcome screen is notifying users that the group is still being created.
  3. The ability to rearrange frontpage items.
  4. The addition of an advanced admin menu to be able to create and edit CSS style sheets in group frontpage group admin settings.
  5. Frontpage setting to be in its own and main menu of being with another and possibly having its own creation step when a group is created.

Adding Custom Style to A Group

  1. Note: Group Frontpage styles only affect the group frontpage styles and not every page of the group.
  2. Make a copy of the group frontpage default CSS document through FTP to your computer. ( Default CSS file name is: bp-group-frontpage-css.css ). The directory where this is stored is /wp-content/plugins/bp-group-frontpage/css.
  3. Rename this copy and based on the name of the group it is intended for. If your group name is My Group, then your file will be bp-group-f-my-group-css.css. Notice that there is the addition of minus signs ( – ) between each word of your group name and the entire file name is lower case. And the word frontpage is truncated two just the letter f.
  4. Edit the file for your group and save.
  5. FTP your new file into the same directory as the default file.
