This is a complete overhaul of the groups section with many new features and enhancements including Paid Featured Groups, Group Sponsors etc.

By far, the most comprehensive and feature-packed extension of the Groups module available for Dolphin.



Adds the ability for Group Administrator to manually add members as fans.

In default Dolphin, the management of group administrators is clumsy. Firstly, a member has to become a fan before they can be promoted to administrator. Secondly, there is no page block to display all the administrators. This mod overcomes those deficiencies by allowing existing group administrators to directly create new administrators. Also a page block is added so that all active group administrators are displayed on the main page for the group.


The default Dolphin Group module does not have real Private Group functionality. However, with this mod you can create a Private Group (with fan access only). When this is viewed by a non-fan, only the Join button is shown.


This is an optional feature that allows a Site Administrator to charge fees for Featuring Group Listings.

Admin can set the cost per day for a listing to remain featured.


In addition to Photos, the Group Admin can upload a Logo for the Group.


Many Groups have Sponsors that contribute to them. Group Admin can now highlight and promote those Sponsors by listing them on the Groups page.

Sponsors block with the latest Sponsors is shown on Group View page.

Sub-section added to Group page to allow browsing all Sponsors.


Some Groups physically meet at venues for Groups etc. Group Admin can now list those Venues on the Groups page.

Venues block with the latest Venues is shown on Group View page.

Sub-section added to Group page to allow browsing all Venues.


It is now possible for Group Admins to ban individual members from joining a particular group. The group page shows a list of banned members and the Group Admin have the option to unban them in the future.


Adds the ability for members to create "Invitation Only" Groups. Access can be restricted to Fans only and the Group Admin will have to send an Invitation for others to Join. The Invitation will be delivered to both Internal and External mail and will have an Accept Invite link.


The mod includes the ability to post a Group with a physical location (this is optional since Groups can also be online-based).

Site members can drill down Groups based on location. A section is included which lists all Countries in the world. Upon selection of a Country, all regions in that Country are displayed. Upon selection of a Region, the Groups located at that location are displayed.


Groups in My Area block - The account page is now enhanced to include an additional block displaying the Groups located in the same City that the member is located.


More Local Groups Block - This lists other Groups located in the same City as the Group being viewed.

Other Groups by member Block - This lists other Groups posted by the creator of the Group being viewed.

Group Sponsor Block - Displays information such as Name, Email, Website etc for the Group Sponsor.


Advanced Featured Groups block

Absolutely incredible! This mod includes everything that the built in groups was missing. Group calendar is a huge bonus as it adds value to your site for members to use and organize their local groups/clubs/chapters etc. Best part of modzzz's mods is that they add the required functionality for your site to grow organically, and they do it with a clean integration or interface. Installation was simple and support is excellent, as always.
Another outstanding module by Modzzz. He's as good as they come. Can't wait for future modules from him. Thanks again.
Our travel community site relies on groups so this app is just what we need to provide a great opportunity for our groups to drive content and visitors to us. Excellent, speedy and efficient service. Thanks Modzz.
Thank you for all your help .This is a GREAT MOD Thanks.
This mod has helped my website so much. members want to join and form groups with people they know or want to network with. outstanding mod,they also have the best support and fixed any problems within 2 hours thats pretty fast
This is an awesome mod, well everything is great from the Modzzz team as well as the service! I have a few of their mods and I'm buying more! Keep up the great work 10*
Well I have been here watching Dolphins development for at least 5 years now and I have seen people come and go. I still consider myself a newbie lol because there is so much to learn about dolphin. Ok enough about me, I’m writing this review because I truly believe that Dolphin would have nowhere near the popularity it has, if it was not for the awesome work of Modzzz. I’ve recently purchase 11 mods including this one and so far all 11 work flawlessly. A creative, prolific, and programing see more genius. He is truly the one. Thanks for everything Jerome.
I love it when mods run the way they are supposed to, with great support behind them. Jerome is a consumate professional.
You definately have earned the reputation of your comments. This guy responds faster then flash gordon. Had a problem with install. wrote him - took a shower (about 10 minutes) when i returned all was fixed and working. Mod is great, even better then what you expect it would be and service/support is exceptional. I thank you for your commitment and I will definately be purchasing more of your mods. I am making my list now!!!!!!!!! ps. but i will be asking you to install them lol :-)))
A great module now that it's working. There were some installation hiccups though, and I'm not sure why everyone's raving about the support.

I got a couple of terse emails that were just barely enough to allow me to track down the problem, and only because I know php and mySQL.

To save yourself a huge headache, be certain that you have all of the modules it depends on installed first.
Hello Modzzz
I am getting database query error when trying to sqlupdate.php
Modzz, the Google maps api used to work great on my groups page. Now I get the following error: Google has disabled use of the Maps API for this application. See the Terms of Service for more information:
How can I re-enable the Maps API on the Premium Groups page?
When will 7.1 be released?
This product is not compatible with version 7.1.0 the seller writes Requirements: 7.1 but not working i have test it is fantastic up to version 7.0.1 - 7.09 stay careful to buy for Dolphin 7.1.0 generates errors and still not updated. I do not understand what the seller wrote Requirements: Dolphin 7.1 this creates confusion, is a big difference between 7.0.1 and 7.1.0 carefully.
This developer is amazing! I have purchased over 10 different mods from them. All of them very affordable. I have had a few issues, but they were "my own fault for not reading the instructions". I will continue buying from them as long as they keep coming up with these great ideas. :-) My rating 10/10. You will never regret your purchases with them.
I am a HUGE FAN of Modzzz's modules - Premium Groups - (with Events) is a FABULOUS Masterpiece!!! Buy with confidence A+++++++++
simply g8 modification of normal group module. liked blogs and venue. need addition of donation in this and making fans feature. so that members who are creating groups and taking pain to build your site by inviting people in their group can earn more other than only earning by sponsors.
Can i surpress the 0 fans message beneath the groups , it doesn't show that nice to people ;)
This mod is a great improvement over regular groups. Modzzz has been very responsive and even finished the install for me after I hit a snag the first time. Thank you.
Excellent mod and support. Great addition to my site.
