  2. Upload plugin files to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


How do I specify users who aren’t registered?
  • By email address, of course! Integrators can override this with the bp_group_reservation_search_key hook
What kind of memberships am I reserving?
  • Reserved spots are at member level. See below for how to change this for an extra-special user.
Can I reserve a moderator or admin spot for a user?
  • Yes! Use the following format when creating the reservation:, level=mod (replace mod with admin to save a group admin spot.)
Can I store other data in the reservation?
  • Sure! You can store attributes with key=value pairs, separated by commas. This plugin won’t process those values, but it will fire actions for you to use them.
