I am creating a module that creates a node type. How do I declare the node type as an OG group node and other OG settings on the module install?

Just use the following code:

variable_set('og_content_type_usage_'. $type, 'group');
  • Excellent. All OG settings in the variable table? am I just over looking the documentation on this?

Just edit the content type and in 'Organic groups' section mark it as 'Group node'.

  • Thanks Maciej, but this is not the direction I am after.
