With the release of BuddyPress version 2.6, the idea of group types made way into the world of BuddyPress users. And now, a new plugin is here to add sub categories just the way users would want to. The BP Create Group Type plugin allows the website administrators to add group types to their sites.
The BuddyPress Group Search plugin allows the site visitors to search for BuddyPress groups. This includes searching based on BuddyPress group types in the site. Through this plugin, the search template that is on the "/groups" page, is modified.
