What is Group-O-Matic?

Group-O-Matic is an extension of the BuddyPress Extended Profile component, and is configured from the
extended profile Edit Field screen.

If you are anxious to try it out, go to the fully functional demo at

This plugin is different than other plugins with similar functionality in two very big ways:

  1. It does not require any additional database tables, nor does it modify any of the existing tables.
  2. The decision to match a member to a group can be based on their responses to extended profile fields.

The major features are:

  • Match groups using their Name, Slug, or ID
  • Match groups based on member response data using a flexible macro.
  • Add members to a specific group based on a Yes/No type of field.
  • Toggle automatic joining on/off without losing your settings.

A pro version is available which adds:

  • Force Edit Profile – members can’t navigate the site unless their profile is complete.
  • Group Activity Tab – an additional tab is added to the activity stream under which only activity for the matching group is displayed.
  • Wildcard Pattern Matching – supports using meta-characters like: *, ?, [abc]
  • PCRE Pattern Matching – for absolute control over the matching algorithm.
  • Premium Support – get professional support directly from the plugin’s author.
