BuddyPress Extend Groups Description - CodeCanyon Item for Sale


Ad: Bluehost hosting

Important Information

This plugin will work only if BuddyPress installed and configured with a Groups component activated. Read BuddyPress documentation to know how to do that.

So the minimal requirements are:

  1. WordPress 3.2.x
  2. BuddyPress 1.2.5
  3. Javascript enabled in your (and your members) browser (that’s 99.6% of all internet users).

Tested up to WordPress 3.8 and BuddyPress 1.9.1.


With “BP: Extend Groups Description” you can add extra functionality to pretty straight-forward BuddyPress groups.

  • Use @mentions in description to define (or point to) famous community members.
  • Use any WordPress shortcode in a description to make it unique!
  • Check the length (in # of words) of a description in group admin area. By default 25 words is the “orange zone”.
  • If the description is more then 25 words, it will be splitted with a “Less” link.
  • Everything is ready to be localized (i18n support).
  • Rich Editor for group description in group admin.
  • You can use shortcodes in groups descriptions
  • In BuddyPress admin area (BuddyPress -> Settings) you can enable or disable rich editor for group description.
  • You can enable or disable words count for group description.
  • You can specify the number of words to display before the “Less” link will appear in a group description.


  1. Upload the ‘bp-extend-groups-description’ folder with all its content to WordPress plugins folder (normally it’s ’/wp-content/plugins/’).
  2. Go to WordPress admin Plugins page.
  3. Activate the plugin “BP Extend Groups Description”.
  4. Go to “BuddyPress -> Settings” page and enable/disable rich editor for groups descriptions.
  5. Go to any group page (or group admin area where grop details are edited) in your social network and enjoy the results!
