By default, the platform does not have this option. You can use the following function code to show Group's full description. Choose which code you want to use below.


Please follow the steps below:


1. Go to Appearance > Theme Editor.

2. Under Select theme to edit, choose (BuddyBoss Child/whatever theme is active), then click Select.

3. Below Theme Files, select Theme Functions (functions.php).

4. Append the code just before the closing PHP tag “?>”:


Use this code if you want to set how many characters would only show up on the group description. Just change the value of 2000.

add_filter( 'bp_get_group_description_excerpt', 'custom_bp_get_group_description_excerpt', 100, 2 );
function custom_bp_get_group_description_excerpt($excerpt, $group){
  $group_link = '... <a href="' . esc_url( bp_get_group_permalink( $group ) ) . '" class="bb-more-link">' . esc_html__( 'View more', 'buddyboss-theme' ) . '</a>';
  if ( bp_is_single_item() ) {
      $group_link = '... <a href="#group-description-popup" class="bb-more-link show-action-popup">' . esc_html__( 'View more', 'buddyboss-theme' ) . '</a>';
  }
  return bp_create_excerpt( $group->description, 2000, array( 'ending' => $group_link ) );
}

Use this code if you want to fully show the group description.

add_filter( 'bp_get_group_description_excerpt', 'custom_show_entire_bb_get_group_description', 999, 2 );
function custom_show_entire_bb_get_group_description( $excerpt, $group ) {
   if ( empty( $group ) ) {
       return $excerpt;
   }
   return $group->description;
}
