This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

BP Group Organizer


This plugin creates an administrative interface for organizing all of your BuddyPress groups.

Based on the WordPress Menu editor, BP Group Organizer makes it simple to get your BuddyPress groups just the way you want them, or just to get a handle on the growth of your site.

  • Easily create groups in one step
  • Edit multiple groups and group properties without waiting for page reloads
  • Delete unwanted groups in a flash

Goes great with BP Group Hierarchy

For users of BP Group Hierarchy, this plugin also allows you to move groups around the hierarchy by dragging and dropping. Get your groups just the way you want them, quickly and easily.


  • The organizer


  1. Install BP Group Organizer through the WordPress Plugin Directory


  2. Unzip

  3. Upload the contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Why are my drag and drop changes not saved?
  1. Dragging and dropping is only meaningful on installs running BP Group Hierarchy, since this plugin does not enable subgroups in BuddyPress.
  2. There is no explicit “order” to BuddyPress groups. Changes made by dragging groups up or down at the same level are not saved.

Haven't used yet, but from screenshot looks fantastic and sorely needed.
