Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
As part of the design for Drupal Commons, users are able to create nodes inside of public groups in a single reference field, regardless of whether or not the user is already a member of the group.
OG provides separate "your groups" and "other groups" fields with separate autocomplete, validation and submission handling.
Can you advise on how we could use the OG/Entityreference API to provide these as a single field?
Switching the field to a basic Entityreference field causes OG to show the error,
[field] is a group-audience but its Entity selection mode is not defined as "Organic groups" in the field settings page
Additionally, I believe that some of the default validation from the og_group_ref field is useful, so my sense is we don't want to simply suppress that message and use a default entity reference field.
