Anyone who has read this blog before knows that I love the Drupal Group module. It has a companion module, Entity Group Field (not yet stable), which makes it even more useful. This adds a field to entities which allows you to add them to groups on their edit form, rather than having to go separately to the group to add them.
Here's how to print the rendered value of that field in node.html.twig…

I really appreciate when a website or app offers the choice of dark mode. It makes reading at night much easier on the eyes, and some people prefer it at all times due to vision issues.
I'd never implemented a dark mode switch, so one of my goals for my blog redesign was to do so, both for reader convenience and to gain the experience. Here's how I did it.
It might seem surprising that I discuss…

I guess I'm a little obsessed with the Group module, or maybe it's just that I've been using it a lot lately, and still learning its ins and outs.
One of the main purposes of Group is to control user access to various content types, based on what Group(s) the viewing user and content are in. Each Group type has an extensive permissions table where you can control permissions for anonymous users,…

Previously, I posted about how to create a view on a user's profile of content authored by that user, limited to content in Group(s) the viewing user is a member of. That tutorial shows how to accomplish that with a view of content (Drupal nodes) which are in Groups.
The person who requested that tutorial later told me they needed a view of Group content. Group content is the relationship between…

The following preprocess function will give you unique classes on the body tag for each Group content type (from the Group module). It adds two classes, one that includes the Group type that the content is in as well as the Group content type (e.g. group-content--client-group--node-page); and one with just the Group content type (e.g. group-content--node-page).
Place this code in your theme's .…

The following template suggestion (placed in your theme's .theme file) will give you field template suggestions per entity type, e.g. field--node.html.twig, field--group.html.twig, field--media.html.twig, etc. I wanted to theme all fields in Groups the same way, and didn't want to have to create field templates for each group type, which was the least granular template suggestion available.

By default you get the following page template suggestions for a Commerce product:

I previously wrote about how to create a View of content from a Group that a user is a member of. For another site, I have to show a list of other members in the same group on user profiles. Another common use case might be showing a logged-in user a list of other members in his/her group(s).
You can do this two ways:

Drupal has gotten so much more powerful and easy to work with, but there are still a few things that are missing that seem like they should be a given. Such as, the ability to format certain Views exposed filters, like node titles or Group names, as dropdown select lists rather than an empty textfield that requires the user to know what the possible options might be instead of presenting them.…

The Group module is a powerful one I turn to often when a site has a requirement for groups of users who should have specific permissions, access to edit or view specific content, etc.
A common requirement is to show a list of content belonging to the Group(s) a user is member of, using Views. That isn't as straightforward as it seems. I recently had to do this and struggled a bit, so thought…
