Drupal 7, Organic Groups, & Forums

I’ve been trying to incorporate Organic Groups with Forums in Drupal 7. What I’m wanting is a private group where group members can post various types of content and also have a private forum for discussion.

OC has changed a bit from Drupal 6. It is now recommended to use Panels as well. I’ve been trying to sort though the various issues and I found this page that outlines the process. I still have a bit of work to do (Forums), but this page is pretty concise. I’ll update this post as I get further.

    1. Not the way I really want it. I was able to get the forum to be OG content as long as I only had one group. It’s been a little while since I set it up, but I remember that I realized things were working only because I had one group. If I had multiple groups, I would have to give forum permissions to all groups and then one group could post or see forum content from the other group.

      I don’t think I saw any way around it.

      Since I only need one group, right now, I didn’t spend much time trying to figure out how to do it differently. I remember seeing this (http://drupal.org/project/og_forum), but it was abandoned and had security issues. There was also this project: http://drupal.org/project/spaces_og_forum but I didn’t see any downloads or modules. This (http://drupal.org/project/spaces) also looks like it could help, but to be honest, at this point, I didn’t have the time to put all the pieces together. I was hoping that someone had, but I didn’t find anything that I could use now.
