Current version: v2.0.0 Tested up to BuddyPress 4.1.0
BuddyPress Create Group Type is a BuddyPress plugin that uses the new Group Types feature in order to create a range of admin defined group types for selection by the group creator. Once selected the group type is displayed in the group cover area of the group’s pages.
Say for example you run a site aimed at people involved with sports and you want to add groups for differing football teams. With this plugin, you could set up a group type of “Football” which would help members understand the nature of the group. We have done modification in BuddyPress search plugin to avail for BuddyPress group type search. There is also a drop-down for group types through which you can do a BuddyPress search for a group based on group types.
