Uses the Group Extention API to make this as easy as installing and activating.

  • Group Edit


  • Download and install using the built in WordPress plugin installer.
  • Activate in the “Plugins” area of your admin by clicking the “Activate” link.
  • No further setup or configuration is necessary.


Does this plugin sanitize user input?


Does this plugin check against existing slugs?


Does this plugin keep a history of slug changes?

Yes, as of 2.0.0. It saves them as group meta.

Does this plugin allow everyone to change slugs?

No. You must have group admin rights to modify group slugs.



I don’t know what happened but somehow I had long random numbers in my slugs and I failed to notice this until I’d already created and added content and I didn’t want to have to delete and start over. It was a gamble trying this plugin as it hasn’t been updated in a long time, but I can confirm that it works with 4.3.1 and bp 2.3.4

Thanks to JJJ for a great lifesaving plugin
