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!

Joining OG Groups OG 7.x-2

When users setup a group I want them to have the option to set public or private. For public groups I want site members to be able to join without approval. For groups designated private by their creator, I want the option for the group administrator to require approval before a site member can join.

How to avoid Organic Groups menu tab Group

Organic Group has added a [Group] tab menu item to all my nodes being viewed, including those which are not part of any group. I have various kind of content, and only one of them is a Group type.

Now every node on my site shows [View] [Group] at the top, where there used to be nothing, unless you were an editor.

How can I avoid this behaviour? Clicking on the [Group] shows a page with no information, since the content is not really connected to a group.

Thank you!

How to create block with content related to node author in OG?

I have been trying to create a block (View content pane) that shows News content written by the author of the node I am on. The node is Organic Group content. I can do it outside of OG with a regular old View block with a contextual filter that grabs the Author ID. But using Organic Groups and Panels, I have been unable to pass the Author ID as a context.

I have the content pane successfully filtering all of the News for the Group the node is in, but get stuck when I try to filter by the author of the node. In Views when I try to set the Argument Input it looks like this:

How to add user to OG 7.x-2.x group with rules?


Have a hard time figuring out how to add user to some OG group automatically on lets say user registration.

The first part is easy, event:
"After saving a new user account"

Condition: none

"Subscribe user to group"

...and then I am stuck.

For example, my OG group is nid 3.

Any clues?

Organic Groups v Relations

I'm in the process of designing an event management website, my first drupal project. Nothing like starting small.

I'm figuring to define events organised by promotors as Groups and use Relations to drive the social aspects of things, on a "OG defines what you see, relations who you tell" basis.

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.

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).

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.
