Private Groups possibility?

Private Groups possibility? was created by earthdog
Hi!

I want to use GJ in order to allow my members to have a personal PRIVATE area (or more than one), to write inside. I need them to be able to write posts that are viewable ONLY by them and nobody else.

Can i do that with GJ?

I also would like to have the posibility to export their content in various ways (HTML,PDF) etc...is there anything available in GJ or i will have to look for other joomla components?

Thanks

Yes, just set the group type to "Invite Only" and it won't be publicly visible nor can users join it unless users are invited to join it.

There is no export features, but I suppose you could use database queries and export the results directly from phpmyadmin.

Ok good to know this about the invite only.

Regarding the export i want this functionality to be available to the user. He should select the date range of the entries, export format e.t.c...

I suppose this will be another component that will access the db and prepare the document.

As GJ has no export feature you'll need to implement or find an extension that can export database data.

Is the database schema understandable enough in order to be able to create html pages from groups posts and then handle them accordingly? (convert to PDF, export in zip archive e.t.c)

It depends on what you're wanting to display, but yes. Wall posts for example store to their own table and have columns for user id for the user who posted the wall entry and group id for what group the wall entry belongs to. You can use that to filter based off group or based off the poster, the information displayed such as the post it self is of course also in this table.
