This plugin allows you to change any BuddyPress group into an announce-only group, where only admins and moderators can post.
With this plugin, I was able to restrict posting on the group home tab to only admins and moderators (as it should be in the first place). In my opinion, if you are using groups, you should have a group forum setup for users so that your group home tab does not get out of control. This plugin allows for this to be done very simply by placing radio buttons at the bottom of the admin tab to turn this feature on or off.
I only made a slight modification to the verbiage used in the group type as the plugin changes the label to "announce group" and one change to the notice that the plugin places on the home tab. This was easily accomplished by just editing the plugin from within wordpress' built in editor.
I'd love to see someone pick up this project or Buddypress just add it in natively.
