In one of my Drupal project, we had a requirement to set a 2 level arrangement for users group. That means, we want to add more than one group for a user, in one of our Drupal site. Our experts find a solution for this by implementing Organic Group with user's account by some custom codes. Do you have a requirement like this? Connect with us.
Organic Groups module is a powerful and useful module in Drupal. This module is used to create groups, add members to it, and to share content and comments. OG also has advanced access management through permissions and roles.
Organic groups module (og module) enables users to create their own groups and manage these groups. The Organic Groups module, provides user the ability to create, manage, and delete their own 'groups' on a site. Each group can have members, and maintains a group home page which individual group members may post into.Group membership can be open, closed or moderated.
There are situations where we need organic groups membership entity ID. Some of situations are : we use the function og_membership_delete() when we want to remove programmatically a user or node or any group content from our group, which will require parameter that is organic groups membership entity ID. Also when come across og_membership_load() function to get the entire organic groups membership object, which will also require OG membership entity ID as parameter. So in these situations how can we get organic groups membership object membership entity ID. See the following function I have written to retrieve the organic groups membership object membership entity Id.
Drupal 7's version of Organic group is totally rewritten by taking the advantage of many new Drupal 7 features, especially entity and field APIs. One of the major difference between drupal OG-6 and OG-7 is the expansion of the concept of what a 'group' is. In Drupal 7, any type of entity can be a group and any type of entity can belong to a group.
