        )

    foreach ($vgroups as $key => $value) {
        if( $key == 'groups' ){
            if( is_array( $value ) ){
                foreach( $value as $key1 => $value1 ){
                    $data = (array) $value1;

                    //print_r( $data ); // this will be useful to help you get the keys
                    
                    $group_id  = $data['id'];
                    $created_by  = $data['creator_id'];
                    $name  = $data['name'];
                    $slug  = $data['slug'];
                    $description  = $data['description'];

Explaining above snippet on how to list all groups in BuddyPress Programmatically

We created a function called jwa_list_all_groups. That’s the function that lists all groups in BuddyPress.

You can call that function anywhere, for example, you can call it in wp_head hook, wp_footer hook or anywhere where the code is needed

Where do you put this snippet?

This snippet should be placed in the functions.php of a child theme or anywhere in your custom plugin’s code.

Make sure you understand wp custom coding development before editing functions.php of the child theme.
