BuddyPress Featured Groups


BuddyPress Featured Groups plugin allows creating/displaying list of featured groups a pleasurable experience.
It is highly flexible in the way the lists are displayed( slider, list, theme default, or custom).
It also provides a simple API for marking/unmarking users as featured group.


  • Multiple groups can be marked as featured
  • Featured Groups can be displayed using shortcode or widget
  • Featured Groups Can be displayed in the directory too
  • You can use multiple widget/shortcodes
  • Each shortcode/widget can be displayed as a list or a slider of groups.
  • A default theme view for groups list is also supported, It lists the groups using groups-loop.php from your theme
  • Easy API for marking a user as featured/removing group from the list of featured groups.
    For documentation, Please see the plugin page.

This is a fork of BuddyDev’s BuddyPress Featured Memebers, other than getting it to work for groups this plugin works in exactly the same way.
