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 groups as featured.
- Multiple groups can be marked as featured
- Featured Groups can be displayed using shortcode or widget
- Featured Groups can be displayed in a banner above the groups directory list, with a choice of grid or two list layouts (simple and full)
- 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.
