Allow Users to Join BuddyPress/BuddyBoss Groups on Registration

A few months ago, we received a support request from a customer who wanted to give registering users the option to select BuddyPress/BuddyBoss groups to join. This led to the development of the Join BuddyPress Groups addon.

In this tutorial, I will be showing us how to add checkboxes or select dropdown of BuddyPress/BuddyBoss groups that registering users can choose to join.

First off, install and activate the ProfilePress plugin and enable the Join BuddyPress Groups addon. Here’s how to enable addons.

Registering users are able to select the groups to join in two ways:

Select Dropdown

Select BuddyPress groups to join on registration

Checkboxes

Setup & Implementation

Create or edit an existing registration form.

Add the BuddyPress Groups block to the form – if using the drag-and-drop builder – and select the field type (select dropdown or checkbox).

If using the Advanced shortcode builder, add the shortcode [pp-buddypress-groups] to your custom registration form to output a checkbox list of groups.

Easy, isn’t it?
