This is part of the continuation of Hack smile’s BuddyPress tutorials and tips. How to detect if the user belongs to any group in buddypress.

There are many cases you would want to check if the user belongs to any group in BuddyPress, for example, when printing a list of users and you are looking to print users that belong to specific groups only.  If the user is not a member of any group, then ignore them. This is exactly what this article is tending to demonstrate.

Detect if User Belongs to a Specific Group

The following code snippet will detect if the user belongs to any group in BuddyPress. The code will return true if a user is a member of any group and return false if a user is not a member of any group

function hacksmile_user_in_any_group( $user_id ){
    $group_ids = groups_get_user_groups( $user_id );
    /*foreach($group_ids["groups"] as $group_id) { 
        //echo(groups_get_group(array( 'group_id' => $group_id )) -> name . (end($group_ids["groups"]) == $group_id ? '' : ', ' ) ); 
    }*/

    if( count( $group_ids["groups"] ) > 0 ){
        return true; 
    }

    return false;

}

The above code snippet clearly demonstrates how to detect if a user is a member of any group in BuddyPress.

To use the above code snippet, check the code below

$user_id = 20; 
if( hacksmile_user_in_any_group( $user_id ) ){
    echo "User is in any group in the system";
} else {
    echo "User does not bring to any group";
}


// ANOTHER USAGE 

if( hacksmile_user_in_any_group( $user_id ) ){
    // pring user name, if they are not in any group nothing will be printed
}

Where to place this snippet

This snippet on how to detect if a user is a member of any group in BuddyPress should be placed in functions.php of a child theme or in any custom plugin that you’re creating.

We have an in-depth tutorial on this website(hacksmile.com) on how to create a child theme without coding.

Never edit the functions.php of the main theme as the code will get erased upon the theme update, but if the code is placed in the child theme, then it will never get deleted.
