Substantially enhances Group Functionality - a better BuddyPress
By , for WP 4.4.2

On a short trial this plugin v. 3.6.7.2 appears to work perfectly with current versions. of WP and BP.
i.e. with WP 4.4.2, BP 2.4.3, bbP 2.5.8 and Theme: Twenty Sixteen v.1.1

This plugin is just, IMHO, awesome! .

The author has confirmed this plugin is being maintained and will be updated when necessary!

It provides much wanted functionality to groups ***

The plugin also has, within it, detailed tutorials for its use .

Most groups would like to say:

who they are,

what they hope to do or what they hope to achieve,

how they can be contacted,

perhaps introduce their Admin,

explain their reason for existing and

outline their method of operating.

This can all be done quite easily with this plugin.

A group can have its own Home Page (or pages). (Groups can also have custom fields)

Not only that, when set-up, admins can do all this from the front-end with full WYSIWYG editing.

And

the Tabs for Activity, Home , Groups, Members etc etc can be reconfigured on the front-end with drag and drop.

So if you want to put group "Home Page", "Group News" or "Group Info" or whatever page etc etc on the extreme left of the Tabs as the anchor tab — you can.

How easy is that!

So for a lot of set-ups Group identity stuff that might have needed multisite and something like BP Groupblog or even multi-network can now have everything on one site.

I think thats a big deal.

I have always been hopeful that BuddyPress would excel in the social networking arena as a collaborative tool and this plugin really enhances group functionality.

***Core buddypress is beginning to incorporate some of this functionality in 2.4 see Group Home Page

Great Work

custom fields broken, tutorial outdated, no support
By , for WP 4.3

I can create custom fields, but no data will save in them. The data I input just disappears after I hit the save button. The included tutorial also seems to be outdated because it says to click buttons and do things that don't exist. There's a lot of cool features, but even if they all worked, I would say it needs a lot of work before it's user friendly enough for the average person. I'm not knocking it for that, though. My primary issue is that I didn't get a response in support.

Life saving plugin
By , for WP 4.2.4

The core set of fields available in BuddyPress Groups is so limited, yet they offer such huge potential. This plugin is more than a life saver: it helps to transform BuddyPress into becoming a fully featured social network. A heartfelt thank you.

Works for me
By , for WP 4.2.2

Buddypress groups description as boxed comes with plain text only and too much of it means you have to scroll down everytime to see whatever is displayed below like the activity stream

One solution would be to have a more... feature the other is to use group extras to add a new extended home page for the group and this it does very well once you've set it up. The big advantage is rich text and add media facility all edited from the front end.

You can go further and add a number of group pages which can be handy - a help page for example.

The pro version it says will include group page content in the search but the link to get to this breaks - loses one star.

The group extras fields are an unnecessary complication really as the pages are perfectly adequate to display contact details etc etc

I hope despite the negative comments elsewhere the author doesn't give up on this plugin.

It could become a core addition to BP and when will BP include rich text and media option to it's updates and group descriptions.

Uh.... wut?
By , for WP 4.1

I have no idea what this plugin is supposed to do and I seriously doubt any of my users would understand it either, even if they cared to try. I was given the impression by discussion on Buddypress.org that this adds fields to be filled out by the admin of a group. At the very least I know what it doesn't do.
