User Groups

Description

Group Your Users

  • Add descriptions to user groups
  • Assign colors to user groups
  • View all users in a group
  • Add users to more than one group at a time

The User Groups plugin does not modify user capabilities, limit access, or anything like that. This plugin does one thing, and does it well: create groups and organize your users by that group.

Works beautifully with the Rich Text Tags plugin for adding WYSIWYG descriptions to the User Groups.

Screenshots

  • The User Groups screen is just like the Categories screen, but with a color selector!
  • View all users in a group, as well as the group description
  • Edit the Group once it is created
  • How the user groups look in the User Profile screen

Installation

  1. Upload the User Groups plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Create User Groups by going to Users > Groups
  4. Add users to an User Group by visiting their profile page and selecting checkboxes of the groups you’d like to add them to

FAQ

Does this plugin limit user access to (anything)

Nope.

Reviews

Unable to test – it will not let me in

I installed it according to instructions.

It reports that there are no groups (yet?).

It will not let me use any of it’s functions because I am “not authorized”.

No easy to find instructions provided for authorizing the first (admin) user…

Oh well…
