BP Fan Page

Description

This plugin allows you to change any BuddyPress group into a fan page, where only admins and moderators can post new forum topics and activity items. Members can read all the content but they cannot add anything. The Forum has been renamed to ‘Announcements’ and non admin users will not be able to create new topics but they will be able to reply. Similarly non admin cannot add new activity updates but they can reply to them.

The plugin also adds a ‘Fan Pages’ link in the Groups directory page to view all the fan pages used on the site.

I am sure you need this plugin, but you may miss this opportunity, because of the plugin name. This plugin is not only for fan pages; you can create personal or professional pages or just a restricted group. It adds useful group controls (which can be extended) that allow to transform a group as you like. And it adds a button in the group directory to distinguish custom groups/pages from normal groups, so initiating two types of groups. You can imagine the potential if you have two types of users, for example people who collaborate on projects and professionals who provide them services and want a restricted group. The directory button helps to distinguish the second type. This plugin can help to restrict other plugins options also for example mediapress uploads...(line 174 using css) Unhopefully the plugin name is misleading and the plugin slug "fan-page" is inappropriate if you want to use it for more than fan pages. Dear users: I opened a thread here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/feedback-and-suggestions-3/ to convince the developer to unlock the potential of the plugin by renaming Labels and Slugs and probably by adding more options. Please test the plugin and write your opinion to support my recommendation if you see the potential I see. Many thanks @venutius
