Support » Plugin: BP Group Hierarchy » Works with BuddyPress Group-O-Matic?

  • I was wondering if anyone has tried using this plugin with the BuddyPress Group-O-Matic plugin. I want two BuddyPress profile fields to determine which Group/Subgroups a user automatically joins.

    To illustrate:

    Field 1 = “State” –> dropdown with list of states; user selects 1 (examples are California or Colorado)
    Field 2 = “Areas of Practice” –> dropdown with list of practice areas; user can select multiple areas of practice (examples are Tax Law and Municipal Law)

    Based on what the user enters in these fields, I would like the user to be automatically added to a Group/Subgroup. Examples of Group/Subgroup combinations would be California/Tax Law, California/Municipal Law, Colorado/Tax Law and Colorado/Municipal Law.

    Hi, jimmybarr –

    I haven’t used the BuddyPress Group-O-Matic plugin, but as long as what you’re expecting doesn’t depend on the groups being in a hierarchy, it sounds possible. You may have to define a LOT of rules to get it to work the way you’ve described, though.

    This plugin is designed to degrade gracefully, so other plugins that aren’t aware of it will see groups as though they were on one level.

    If you encounter any particular errors, please send them along and I’ll see if there’s something I can do.
