Announcing: Clubs

Recommended Posts

We are happy to introduce the next major feature that will be available for CreatorsHub members - Clubs.

Clubs are a brand new way of supporting sub-communities. Many people have requested social group functionality and Clubs are our implementation of this concept. There's a lot to digest there! Let's go over the basic functionality.

Club Types
Four types of club are available:

  • Public clubs
    Clubs that anyone can see and participate in without joining.
  • Open club
    Clubs that anyone can see and join.
  • Closed club
    Clubs that anyone can see in the directory, but joining must be approved by a Club Leader or Club Moderator. Non-club-members who view the club will only see the member list - not the recent activity or content areas.
  • Private club
    Clubs that do not show in public, and users must be invited by a Club Leader or Club Moderator

Club Users
Each club has three levels of user:

  • Leader
    A leader has all of the permissions of a moderator, and can add other moderators. They can also add content areas (see below). The club owner is automatically a leader.
  • Moderators
    Moderators, as the name implies, have the ability to moderate content posted within the club. As the site administrator, you can define which moderator tools can be used. You could, for example, prevent any content being deleted from clubs, but allow it to be hidden. Moderators can also remove members from a club.
  • Users
    Anyone else that joins the club.

For closed clubs, there's an approval process. Users can request to join and the request must be approved by a leader. Leaders get a notification when a user requests to join; the user gets a notification when their request is approved or denied.

Club Content
Club Leaders can add a variety of content areas to their club - forums, calendars and so on. 

Each content area a leader adds can have a custom title, and will appear in the club navigation. This means, for example, that you can have multiple forums within a club, and give each a different name.

Club Locations
Clubs have built-in support for Google Maps, allowing you to specify a physical location for your club. The Club Owner specifies the location when setting up the club, and clubs are then shown on map on the directory page:

And within a club, the location is shown too:
