Plugin / BuddyPress Groupblog

Description

Description

Requires BuddyPress 1.7+ and PHP 5.3+.

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.
    Known Issues:

  • In order for Group Avatars to show on blogs please adjust the bp-core-avatars.php file. I realize this is a nono, but I don’t see another way. Patches and ideas are welcome. For know adjust the last two functions for plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-avatars.php to the following:

    /**

    • bp_core_avatar_upload_path()
    • Returns the absolute upload path for the WP installation
    • @global object $current_blog Current blog information
    • @uses wp_upload_dir To get upload directory info
    • @return string Absolute path to WP upload directory
      */
      function bp_core_avatar_upload_path() {
      global $current_blog;

      // Get upload directory information from current site
      $upload_dir = wp_upload_dir();

      // If multisite, and current blog does not match root blog, make adjustments
      if ( bp_core_is_multisite() && BP_ROOT_BLOG != $current_blog->blog_id )
      $upload_dir[‘basedir’] = WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/uploads/’;

      return apply_filters( ‘bp_core_avatar_upload_path’, $upload_dir[‘basedir’] );
      }

    /**

    • bp_core_avatar_url()
    • Returns the raw base URL for root site upload location
    • @global object $current_blog Current blog information
    • @uses wp_upload_dir To get upload directory info
    • @return string Full URL to current upload location
      */
      function bp_core_avatar_url() {
      global $current_blog;

      // Get upload directory information from current site
      $upload_dir = wp_upload_dir();

      // If multisite, and current blog does not match root blog, make adjustments
      if ( bp_core_is_multisite() && BP_ROOT_BLOG != $current_blog->blog_id )
      $upload_dir[‘baseurl’] = WP_CONTENT_URL . ‘/uploads’;

      return apply_filters( ‘bp_core_avatar_url’, $upload_dir[‘baseurl’] );
      }
