WP User Groups

Description

WP User Groups allows users to be categorized using custom taxonomies & terms.

  • “Groups” & “Types” are created by default, and can be overridden
  • More user group types can be registered with custom arguments
  • Edit users and set their relationships
  • Bulk edit many users to quickly assign several at once
  • Filter the users list to see which users are in what groups
  • Not destructive data storage (plugin can be enabled & disabled without damage)
  • Works great with all WP Term Meta plugins (see below)

Reviews

Very well-executed

I’ve been using this for a fairly complex WP build and I’ve been very impressed. The back-end is easy for users and there’s a nice API for devs. Two thumbs up.

Solid foundation for development

This plugin is tremendously solid. Used it to build a complex system of content teams who could only create or edit content within their own team. WP User Groups handled the “teams” of users which corresponded with taxonomy terms associated with the content. Works like a charm. Plugin itself is lightweight and simple to grasp.

Great way to group your site members.

Dead-simple to get set up and start using. Works great in combination with BuddyPress too. Filter site members into as many different groups and/or types as you need in the admin backend. I haven’t yet tried doing anything front-end wise with it, but I’m sure there’s potential there for devs.

If, like me, you need to filter down long lists of members for occasional admin tasks, this is for you.
