Backdrop LIVE is based upon an unconference model. Anyone can declare a topic up through the day of the event and the schedule is subject to change at any time. What would you like to talk about?

There is currently an effort being made to port the Organic Groups module from Drupal 7. This is a large and complex module, but important to many sites. In this session, we'll talk about:

  • What the Organic Groups module does and why it's important to the community
  • The progress of the port 
  • If the work is ongoing, how we can work together to expedite completion
  • If the work is complete, what we learned from the experience


I'm interested to learn something about the mechanics behind: How user settings are working? Why a registered user can't be deleted? Where is a possibility to solve this?

How could I carry a group membership to a user (enter a group), set automatically the group membership for content, while carrying this membership (content autotag) and how could I release it (leaving a group)?

How could I display all group content or group members, just while carrying the membership info?

Please realize, that this is different than to register to a group for membership.

My idea:

To enter a group, should go trough a gateway or link on the groups main page (the group itself). The membership to a group is already required to be allowed to enter this group. The state is carried like a flag (entered or not). A view should be able to act as a group menu.

Unfortunately I don't know, how to realize it.

@olafski I may not be able to attend sessions on the 12th due to a prior commitment. Take good notes? :)

@laryn, thanks for your message. Hope you can attend. But agreed in any case that we should take notes.
