Permission Groups

Permission Groups are user groups for which permissions may be modified.  This modification may be through supplemental role assignment, exceptions and/or circle activation.

There are several types of Permission Groups:

  • pp_group : groups manually created, with membership custom-defined
  • pp_group (metagroup_type = wp_role) : groups auto-created to correspond to the site’s WordPress roles (group membership corresponds to users who have this WP role)
  • pp_net_group : groups manually created and accessible to all sites on a network (note: requires PP Compatibility extension; permissions must be customized separately for each site)
  • bp_group : references to existing BuddyPress groups (note: requires PP BuddyPress Role Groups extension)
