When this plugin is enabled, each group after creation is visible only for admins and it's creator. Admin has to approve the group as valid in order for group to be visible to everyone. Alternatively, he can delete it.

After someone creates a group, it's visible only for the creator and admins. Admin has to approve the group as valid in order for group to be visible to everyone. He has to enter the group's profile and use the 'activate' or 'delete' button from the group's menu. This menu will appear above the group's description.

The plugin is clean, simple and easy to extend.


In commercial version, available at project's homepage (the link 'plugin homepage' in the left column) there are additional features:

  • a list of all groups that are created, available from administration page
  • notifications for admin when a new group is created, and for user when his group is accepted/rejected
  • text of notifications can be modified via standard Elgg translation files
  • compatibility with vazco_topbar - moderation is accessible from topbar's administration section as well when both plugins are used

More detailed description is available at project's homepage
