Continuing the discussion from Prioritize showing group members (not posts) on group landing page, describe groups, provide groups directory:
Thanks @downey (and @tobiaseigen). That was definitely useful to know; equally it confirms that it unfortunately doesn’t meet my requirements! To recap, what I’m after is a way for those I have invited to a private discussion group to see who else they are sharing their posts with. This is primarily to create trust and reduce inhibitions.
As per @tobiaseigen’s suggestion I am configuring access to the private categories using groups, so essentially what I am looking for is a widget that shows, on the category homepage, all the users belonging to the group associated with the category (or a selection of them, with an option to click to see all).
