Limit BuddyPress Groups Per User

The Limit BuddyPress Groups Per User plugin lets the site administrator restrict the number of groups a user can create on a BuddyPress

The plugin includes the features:

  • Role-based restrictions for BuddyPress group creation
  • Restrict the maximum number of Groups created by a user with a specific role (role-based limit)

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.
