BuddyPress Mandatory Groups


Site administrators can enforce group membership policy with BuddyPress by using the BuddyPress Mandatory Groups plugin.

Users locked in to a group or group are unable to leave that group.
Functions are available for system integrators to add membership enforcement to other processes.


How do I enforce group membership?
  • Either from the Members tab in the group Admin section, or through BP Group Management



  • Changed: updated lock/unlock links to match other BuddyPress buttons
  • Removed: support for BP 1.2, 1.5 – no code changes, but I am no longer testing against those versions


  • Changed: updated some strings to fit the rest of BuddyPress better


  • Fixed: Removed short open tags


  • Initial release
