#1706 closed enhancement (no action required)

categorize groups, filter group enhancement

Cc: luccame


Hello, i think when our buddypress community start to have lots of members and groups it will be very difficult for users to find groups they can like just by using keyword.

Maybe it can be a great enhancement to add for admin a way to add category and sub cat for groups (so it will be herited by forum too )

and when a user create a group he have to check in which category he want to put this group.

If people don't want this feature theys just dont categorize the group...

After you can make ht*t://yoursite/groups/ (and /forums/)

a real directory for groups with tabs for each categories and filter.

Maybe you can add to /activity/ a filter for last activity by category which will show latest activity for group and forum (if forum category is herited by group).

I hope you will find this enhancement usefull cause it will add something more clear for buddypress.

It's sure it will be more clear than my really poor english !

thanks to all buddypress community and devs

Replying to DJPaul:

Oh and : what can be really good too is to modify the related widget: groups

So if one user have a blog he can, if he want show only all groups with category of "nature" for example
People who visite this blogs if they look at to group widget they will be redirected to some related group of the content of this blog.

If groups get turned into a custom post type in 1.4, real group taxonomies will come for free. Let's wait until then to make the decision.
