Do you want to add a user to an organic group programmatically in Drupal, then here is a solution. In one of my Drupal module I had a requirement to add users programmatically to an organic group. So I have created a custom function in my module for this purpose. This uses the function og_group to add a user entity to a group. Refer the following code. Remember that, you can add only an existing user to a group. It will not create a new user.

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. The organic groups module allows us to create a working group where a number of people can create content which is non-public and it is visible to group members only.

Once in a while you will come across a Drupal site where you have to login to the site without having access to the credentials of user 1. You can easily reset the password of user 1 directly in the database or you can create a small work around to login to the site. Here is how you can login to the Drupal 7 site programmatically as user 1 without knowing user 1 credentials.
