Technical Checklist...

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.


SEE BELOW FOR SAMPLE LIST OF AVAILABLE ENHANCEMENTS


GROUP FANS/ADMINISTRATORS
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


PRIVATE GROUPS
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


PAID FEATURED GROUPS
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


GROUP LOGO
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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


GROUP SPONSORS
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


GROUP VENUES
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


BANNED MEMBERS
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


ENHANCED ACCESS RESTRICTION
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


GROUPS LOCALIZATION
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


ACCOUNT PAGE
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.


ENHANCED GROUPS VIEW PAGE
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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

This what we were looking for... it adds a lot of missing features to the groups. We do have a few questions as how other groups modules will interface with it like the groups cover module from the same author.

Have a few suggestions for the embedded videos from youtube though. Would be nice to have a description field that will open below the video once it's selected and the ability for people to comment on the videos embedded. Interaction is what builds the website and comments encourage see more interaction. Would be nice to see if it counts the views too.
