A widget that lets the user add themselves to a specified group (including FrogConnect users).

Based on an idea from Adrian Tate at Gosforth Academy, Join a Group gets you to specify a group in the editor, using the standard group selector.  Then when a user visits the page, they are able to click a button and are automatically added to the group. 


  • Select either a button, upload an image to act as a button or silently add the user when the widget is loaded.
  • Set the site to refresh after adding, so that any Rules based on groups run.  Ideal for club sites where there is a hidden members area.
  • Send a message to a specified email address when someone joins the group.
  • Works with FrogConnect’s External Users too.  This feature allows you to add your connected schools to school-based groups on your central hub.


Note: MIS-linked groups will not work with this widget
