Group Settings and Roles

10,000 lbs community allows any member to create a group around a common interest or purpose. Here are some basic settings that will help you get started

Privacy Options

When creating a group, you have the option of making your group Public, Private, or Hidden.

  1. Public groups are visible in all group directories. The contents of the group – activity updates, forum posts, and any additional group functionality you might add through plugins – is publicly accessible. Anyone in your Fit community can join a Public group.
  2. Private groups are also visible in group directories. The group name and group description remain available for all to see. However, the contents of the group are accessible only to members. Moreover, group membership is controlled: members of your broader BuddyPress community must request membership, which can only be granted by a group administrator.
  3. Hidden groups are invisible to non-members. These group names and descriptions are not listed in sitewide directories, and their contents are accessible only to members of the group. Because the group is unlisted, users cannot request membership. Instead, individuals can only join the group by invitation.

Group administrators can change a group’s privacy settings at any time by visiting the group’s Admin tab > Group Settings.

Group roles

10,000lbs group members have three roles available to them.

  1. Members: By default, when a user joins a group, he or she has the role of member. What does it mean to be a member of a  group? That depends on what kind of group it is.
    1. In a public group, members are able to post to that group’s forums, as well as submit content to other parts of the group.When a user posts to the discussion forum of a public group, the user automatically becomes a member of the group. Additionally, being a member of a group means having the group’s activity aggregated in your Activity > My Groups activity stream.
    2. In a private group or a hidden group, members have all the same privileges as members in a public group. Additionally, being a member of a private group means that you get to see who else is a member of the group, and that you’re able to send invites to other users.
  2. Moderators: When a group member is promoted to be a moderator of the group, it means that the member receives the following additional abilities:
    1. Edit, close, and delete any forum topic or post in the group
    2. Edit and delete other kinds of content, as produced by certain plugins
