The BP Auto Group Join plugin lets you automatically join new and existing BuddyPress members to the BuddyPress Groups of your choice. Optionally determine which group to join based on Member Type, using our BuddyPress Member Types plugin.
The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.
BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.
You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
