    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:
    HELP
    NEWS
    JOBS

    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. But how can these be Groups if I never clicked anything to join the HELP Group or JOBS Group? Is everyone who signs up for the site automatically a member of those groups? How/where is that controlled?

    please advise. thanks in advance!

    @jake anyone can VIEW a group or a forum post. You only JOIN a group if you want to get email notifications about posts (at least on this site).

    Also, talking about Groups… please post your BuddyPress questions, in the BuddyPress group, not the main WordPress one: http://wpnyc.org/groups/buddypress-troubleshooting-and-support/forum/
