Want a new way to organize your BuddyPress groups? Check out this new, experimental plugin called BP Group Categories/Types. It allows the site admin to set up two different types of groups – cateogry groups and user groups. The user groups are the regular user-created groups. The category groups are container shells for user groups that fall under that specific category. Only the site admin can create the category groups. They can be created in wp-admin or you can choose to create a category group instead of a user group when you visit /groups/create. This new plugin opens up a lot of possibilities for BuddyPress sites that are heavily group-focused but having a difficult time sorting them all. This is currently an alpha-release that you can play with on a development site, but it’s not yet recommended for production sites.
