Group content is a node type that a group is allowed to use.

In our OSU Drupal 7 OG distribution, the only node type, out of the box, that absolutely requires being set as group content is the Book page, as this node type is what defines the static structure of a group.

If a group would like to leverage feature-based content, such as Feature Story, Video, Highlight, or Image Album, that content must be configured to work within groups. 

Let's define the Book page content type as group content:

  1. Go to Admin menu > Structure > Content Types > Book page.
  2. Scroll down to the Organic Groups vertical tab and click on it.
  3. In the Specify how OG should treat content of this type... set of checkboxes, check Group Content.
  4. Click the Save Content Type button.

This process has to be repeated for every single content type that you want a group to be able to work with.

Now we're ready to add the OG components.
