    I have a patch for groups 404 redirect module which I would like to get into the plugin? How should I proceed?

    You can look the patch at:

    It adds support to give original url as parameter to the post or page which we are redirecting, so that post or page can do something and link back to the page which made the redirect to happen.

    Is it possible to enable hidden posts (belonging to another group witch the current user doesn’t have) to show up in search results but then direct the user when they click on the link to it?

    I want to be able to show a list of Premium posts but redirect the user to the sign up page when they click on it to read it.

      Hi Tyrone,
      sorry, the search filters the restricted posts/pages. You could use the [groups_member] and [groups__non_member] shortcode, and not restrict the full post/page.
      Kind Regards,
      Antonio B.
