Groups: Disable Subscribe to Group

Some groups may not want non-members to be able to subscribe to their group. To achieve this we must do a few things.

  1. Override the group permissions. By default Working Groups have some general permissions that are applied to all newly created groups.
  2. Click the "Group" tab from the group's home page and click on Permissions to manage the group's permissions.
  3. Under "Organic groups UI" look for the row titled "Subscribe to group (no approval required)" and uncheck the box in the non-member column. This will change the display box at the bottom of the group's home page to read. "This is a closed group. Only a group administrator can add you."
