Organic groups

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

This group is about the development of OG module and related modules. It is not an issue queue!'s picture

Displaying group fields with a view embedded in a panel

Hi Folks,

Apologies if this is not the right place to post. Please let me know where to go.

I run an organization across university campuses with local groups on each campus and I'm developing a drupal site with organic groups to connect everybody together. Using D7, OG7, and Views 3.

Each campus is an OG group and has their own page. On each page, there will be a fixed header with information about the university, e.g. photo, motto, location, etc., and then group related content, e.g. articles, events, member list, etc.

Email Drupal content to email

I am creating a Church website. They want to be able to have a prayer request form where the user can send it to the pastor, elders, or deacon. Is there a way in organic groups to do this? Thanks.

User group assignment using registration form (OG)

I am new to Drupal, so I apologize in advance if the answer to this question is simple and I am just missing something obvious.

I an struggling with the registration process. I have the three groups built. When a user fills out the registration form to become a member of the site, I want them to select one of the three groups to become a member and have them be assigned to that group upon administrator approval.

Is it possible to post one group content type into multiple group types?

I am writing a simple blogging platform for a primary school. I am using Organic Groups to create a multi-user blogging experience.

I want to be able to set up two group types: a class group type and an extra-curricular activity group type. Then I want to be able to set up one group content type: a blog-post. (I don't want 2 different blog-post types: a class-blog-post type and an extra-curricular-activity-blog post type).

How is OG Group info block displayed if the post belongs to multiple groups?

Just a test.

the question is: if a post belongs to 2 or more groups, how to display info of both groups? Or how to choose which is "primary" if groups are selected as on - from multiselect?

Organic Groups Analytics

Hey guys,

I've released some preliminary code that integrates fully with OG (Drupal6) and provides analytics extension for each group.

At the moment you get out of the box a very minimal dashboard view and downloads report. A few points to note:
1. The architecture was built to be modular so that every module can extend or create it's own new reports.
2. It is based on Google's Chart API (the new one, not the old static image charts, and due to that it is also fully ajaxed or REST if so to say).

Redirect top level domain alias to specific og group node

I have my main site ( that has a number of organic groups. I'd like to create a top level domain name ( that gets directed to a specific organic group group content type page ( It would be really great if the URL to showed "" for any page/content within the "beta group" but switched to "" for anything outside of the beta group content. Is this possible?

I tried redirecting through htaccess file but (1) I get thrown into a loop ( and (2) I found out that this won't work with my host because they use nginx.

How to automatically add user to "default" organic group during registration?


Have a question about OG 7.2 and Rules

For example:

Have a community built on OG, and want that every new member of site to be automatically added to some specific group (like "Security and other important announcements") during registration.

Lets assume, that group "Security and other important announcements" is node/1

I cannot find in Rules interface how to do this. I should be simple, as there is event "User is validated" and action "Subscribe user to group" but still do not understand data selector.

Which one to choose?

Thank you in advance.

What's the Easiest Solution to Configure OG in D7?

I originally tried OG several months ago and everything pretty much went up the creek; so much so that I got vexed with it and deleted that Drupal installation. After a few month break I am now back and ready to give it another try.

My question is basically thus: what's the simplest way for me configure OG in my D7 install so that I can actually use it?

I'm running D7.15.

Leave a group Flickr style

I'm still using OG on D6 and I have a use case where group owners should be able to leave their group(s) without hassle. The current solution is that users with node administer permissions can change the author of the og node and then the previous owner can leave the group. But since this requires some manual intervention, I'd like to create a contrib module which implements the Flickr way of handling this use case.

Display OG 7.2 content without Panels? Display Suite?


Pretty new to OG "ecosystem", have one question for more experienced:

What is the best way to display group pages without Panels?
My reasons are that personally do not like Panels also it is too heavy for current project, also saw some screencasts - most are made for 6.x or 7.1 and there are some differences & small annoying bugs.

So, my first thought is to use some module to attach view to group content type and use Display Suite.

Is it the correct way?

What are the alternatives?

Lest assume, that I am building clone.

p.s. Newbie to OG...

re-understanding relations in V2


I'm trying to figure out the relations in V2.

I'm following this great tutorial
but at 1:16 he points to a "OG group from Node" relation, which seems not to be there in V2 (I'm not the only one with this problem, see comments on tutorial).

If possible I'd be happy to get both a simple answer to the work around/new way of doing it + a link/wiki page that explains the relations in the new OG.

Thanks, and I'm really enjoying this OG thing (even with the dead-ends ;-)

Creating a view of all content in a nested group hierarchy


I have a structure of nested groups that each have different content attached to them, and would like to create a view that shows all content of the selected group and the content in it's child groups.

I use og_subgroups to propagate permissions trough the structure but can't seem to find a way to create the view.. Is this possible with Organic groups, or do i have to write a module myself that provides this feature.

I would by the way need the same feature for members of the groups and sub groups.

Tweaking OG

I'm trying to find the best solutions to my needs for using OG under D7. OG seems to be what I want in general for the "Clubs" section of a website I am building with Drupal. But somethings are sticking points in getting this to work correctly:

  • First, I'd like to have it setup where authenticated users can create groups that can be either open to join (preferably one click on a link) or invite only or join request. From what I can tell, OG by default only lets you have one of these at a time, so not sure how to do all of these

Develop with OG7.x-1.x or 2.x?

How close to "production" ready is V2? Obviously the answer to that changes from day to day, but as of this date, there are not that many people using v2. Begs the question: with a new website under development with expected rollout in 2 to 3 months, should we develop 1.x or 2.x?

It is really a question of what does V2 bring to the table that V1 doesn't have, how buggy is V2, and how quickly is V2 development progressing.

Add/Subscribe Users To Groups Via Link, Block Or Custom Module?


I'm looking for a little guidance and help for organic groups. I'd like to be able to add users via link, custom block or custom module. The reason for this is that the administrators of a site I'm developing need to be able to easily add users groups (I don't want them to have to go to the group and add people manually). I'm using Drupal 7.

How to get a custom group field with Views?


I was looking for a way to retrieve a custom field from a group in a view?

For example, I have my Group content type in which I added a custom field (say the «Group Color» field).

Then, I wanted to build a view in which I could show the current node's group «Group Color» field. I was able to retrieve the current node's group ID, but not the custom field.

I built the view showing any type of node and used the OG Groups relationships to ge the current node's group ID.

Anybody has an Idea on how to do this?

Thank you,

How to list members in a group using views Drupal 7 [ Profile 2 + Organic Group ]?

I am using Profiles 2 and Organic groups.

I was successful in listing users via views > Users.

I am using "profiles 2" module to collect and store details of users rather than the core drupal user management.

I have created few groups using "organic groups" module.

My question is how to list all the "PROFILES" (created via profile2 module) of members belonging to a group using views ?
