What does it do?
  • Shows all social groups the actual user is a member of or is subscribed to, just below the forumlist (or anywhere else on forumhome).
  • If there are new messages, the corresponding forum statusicon is highlighted - just like in forumlist.
  • Instead of the statusicons, you can show the group's icon
  • If there are no groups to show, you can choose to show a teaser message.

Things to set in AdminCP/Options
  • use template hook to output or - more flexible - make manual template edit
  • show member of / subscribed to /nothing
  • sort by name or last message date
  • limit max number of groups shown, then link to appropriate page (grouplist for members, usercp for subscribers)
  • restrict use by usergroup
  • show a teaser message if there are no groups to show
  • show buttons to open new discussion etc.
  • apply custom css to grouptitle
  • trim group description to max length or disable
  • parse bbcode in group descriptions
  • use a different set of statusicons for groups than for forums
  • show groupicon instead of statusicon, and choose whether you want to show original size or resized to standard statusicon size

  • Out of the box: copies the standard look of the forumlist on forumhome.
  • Fully templated.

  1. Upload folder "images" to your forum root (can be omitted if you do not want to use the buttons).
  2. Import the product file.
  3. Check settings in AdminCP->Options->Social Groups on Forumhome.
Technical stuff
  • 3 templates (following the forumbit-scheme)
  • 2 plugins
  • 2 queries to forumhome (only if groups are shown, of course).
  • a bunch of phrases (prefix: cel_sgfh_).
  • 4 png-buttons, taken from the silk icon set.
  • Marking of new messages only works with database, not with cookie based marking of read threads (-> AdminCP setting)
  • 3.7 Discussion groups will show up as "no messages yet" as long as there was no message written under a version 3.8.0 or higher

Version history
