I’m trying to figure out the best way to setup my buddypress site and having difficulty understanding the difference in groups vs. forums.
I’d like to kind of mimic what’s going on here at wpnyc.org. The homepage has 3 sections:
I’m guessing NEWS is an “activity feed”?
HELP and JOBS seem to be Groups because when you click on either you end up on the Forum tab of a Group page.
As I understand it, anyone can VIEW and POST in a group, regardless of whether or not they are a group member. Right?
And when you join a group, you get e-mail notifications about posts made in that group. Right?
Can the group e-mail notifications be setup so that group members only get an e-mail when the group administrator posts a new topic that he/she somehow flags as “important”? For example, I’m not a member of this BuddyPress page because I don’t want to get an e-mail every time anyone posts any question about BuddyPress. But I would like to get notified when the group admin posts a message a major announcement in the group forum, like an upcoming BuddyPress Meetup or announces a new version of BuddyPress.
please advise. thanks in advance.
