Introduction to CHORALLY membership

Why join CHORALLY?

CHORALLY groups work in a similar way to groups on mainstream social networks. Groups provide a way of bringing together and organising members and content. By joining particular groups, you will see posts and other content relating to your interests highlighted in your newsfeed, and you can ask to be alerted when new content is posted.
  • Groups present content relating to a particular topic (eg Choral Education), members grouped by type of membership (eg Professional Members) or content and members of a choir, organisation or business.
  • You can see the groups directory here.

Only people who request membership and are accepted can join the group. The group will be listed in the groups directory and in search results. Group content and activity will only be visible to members of the group.Groups may be public (anyone can view content, and registered members can join the groups), private ( Groups are gatherings of members, posts, and any other user-generated content. A member can create a group in BuddyPress (if enabled by Super/Site Admin) and thus becomes the group administrator. Every group includes a Status Update form for members and the latest group news which can be kept up to date by group admins. Group admins can also approve requests to join the private group, invite friends to congregate within a hidden group, establish communications among members, extend privileges to other members, and enable new features (Group Forums if enabled by Super Admin) within the group, among others.
