Plugin / BuddyPress Registration Groups

Eric Johnson



This plugin is built to display BuddyPress groups on the new user registration page. Groups can be displayed as:

  • a list of checkboxes
  • a list of checkboxes in a scrollable container
  • a list of radio buttons

New users will automatically join any of the groups selected during the registration process.

Options are available in the admin area to configure the title of the groups list on the registration page, the
description of the groups list, whether private groups are visible to new users, the order in which groups are
displayed, and how many groups will be visible.

Custom Styles

This plugin includes specific CSS for changing the way content is displayed. The default CSS will place the group after the “Profile Details” section and before the “Complete Sign Up” button on the register page. You can view includes/styles.css in this plugin directory to see how to target each element.

Here is a list of the current selectors used in includes/styles.css.

Groups section:

#registration-groups-section {
    float: right;
    width: 48%;


.reg_groups_group_checkbox {
    margin: 0 5px 0 0;

Form labels:

#buddypress .standard-form label.reg_groups_group_label,
.reg_groups_group_label {
    display: inline;
    font-weight: normal;

Groups section – responsive:

@media only screen and (max-width: 480px) {
    #registration-groups-section {
        float: none;
        width: 100%;

List items:

.reg_groups_item {
    list-style: none;

No groups message:

.reg_groups_none {
    font-style: italic;
    color: gray;


.reg_groups_list_multiselect {
    height: 8em;
        border: 1px solid #ccc;
        background: #fafafa;
        padding: 6px;
    overflow: auto;
