Organic Groups - Overview

  1. 1. ORGANIC GROUPS ROB CARR - DRUPAL DUNDEE NOV 2013
  2. 2. HTTPS://DRUPAL.ORG/PROJECT/OG Enable users to create and manage their own 'groups'. Each group can have subscribers, and maintains a group home page where subscribers communicate amongst themselves. They do so by posting the usual node types: blog, story, page, etc. Groups may be selective or not. Selective groups require approval in order to become a member, or even invitation -only groups. Groups and content can also be private. There are lots of preferences to configure groups as you need. Requires Entity Relationship & Views => Entity API and CTools
