Documentation for basic configuration of Organic Groups (OG) Version 7.x.1.x. OG7 is very different from OG6.

Enable users to create and manage their own 'groups'. Each group can have subscribers, and maintains a group home page where subscribers communicate amongst themselves.

They do so by posting the usual node types: blog, story, page, etc. A block is shown on the group home page which facilitates these posts. The block also provides summary information about the group.

Groups may be selective or not. Selective groups require approval in order to become a member, or even invitation -only groups. There are lots of preferences to configure groups as you need.

Groups get their own theme, language, taxonomy, and so on. Integrates well and depends upon Views module

Currently, when you open a node within a group, you are taken out of the group to see the full node.
How do you stay in the group when viewing the full node?

I'm searching a way like you. I'm trying to see if there is a way to display the group's title in a group's node it.
using views or panels... Maybe the same way as using in views argument for "uid" a checkbox for "Also look for a node and use the node author".
It could be a "nid" width a checkbox for "Also look for group and use the goup related".
is an idea..

When in page manager, add content, click on "Node Tokens" and click "Title". This is the title of the node. Since all the contextual filters are in place, it will output the title of the node you are viewing which just happens to be the group you are on.

I've been adding to the documents on O.G. in D7 starting with the section on "Modifying/Adding to Views".
If we come up with an answer, we should probably post it there.

My interest is to make a registration form in which i deliver optional groups (made by me) so that the user is free to choose from them. And i mean: i create 5 (for example) groups, when the user signs up is required to choose one of those groups and then, when he logs in he's always in that group. How can i set it in the registration form?

Any idea or hint will help

Thank you very much

OG has the og_register sub-module, which would seem to fit that bill.

Try to check your installations admin/modules - it should be included.

Is this possible with D7 port?
