[Complete] User Created Groups.

Post by arrow816 »

This has been made in to a mod: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1847275

Ok what i want is a mod where users can create their own groups, and that group can have a profile that shows, group motto, group avatar,members of the groups. also a place where people can leave comments, and the Founder of the group can post news articles that will show on the top of the group profile page. Also i would like it so on a user profile it will show what group that user is in, and of they are just a member or if they are Founder of the group. Is this possible?

If you need more explanation please let me know.

Thanks,
Steve C

this kind of vbulletin-feature is also something i'd like to have

This surely is an advanced mod, but maybe someone able to do such a modification will develop it when enough users subscribe here...

you've got my support for this

You could probably give the "Can Manage Groups" and "Can add new groups" admin permissions to your registered users. Just make sure your permissions groups are marked "Founder manage only"

interesting idea and perhaps a good place to start but I am looking for a little more integration.

I would like the group to only show for friends and be linked from inside the profiles. such as a myspace, facebook style thing.

Groups are already linked to profiles, and hidden groups are only visible to members.

I would like it so any User can Create a Group, and i dont want to give All my users ADMIN Permissions. So this as a full mod would be very appreciated.

Thanks,

Brf, I already thought so first. But check out the corresponding vbulletin-feature and you'll see, that these kind "private groups" or "interest communities" have many advantages on a normal user level. I think that starting with and expanding the existing group-management would be the easiest way to make such a MOD.

Extending the a_-rights with u_-rights for "private groups" is a first step. These are special groups for special interests, this has nothing to do with overall-groups defined by admins in the current way.

These additional features would be nice in such a MOD:
- Users can create "personal groups" (different to "overall groups" defined in the acp), they are the "Creator"
- "Creators" automatically are "Owners" and "Leaders" of the group the created
- "Owners" can transfer their private groups to another user, who will be the new "Owner" of the group
- "Owners" can define a "Leader" for managing the group
- Listing of all personal groups, extended UCP, extended meberlist_view, etc.
(to be continued...)
