Use https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-plugin-category-optin but beware if you have thousands of categories and millions of users this plugin will create a lot of entries in the database.

@julian, in this case all groups will have the same picture. But on your screenshots each group have individual picture. This feature does not available yet?
@shady2k Hover over the cover photo to change the picture via drag/drop.
We'll want to add upload via regular file input, but we don't have that right now.
Just recently upgraded to 0.6 and have noticed that we cant change the category permissions via the groups. We can only change the category permissions via the categories. unless i am missing something?
It might make sense to create a group and then be able to select what categories that group can see, rather than having to go to each category to change the permissions.
Ah, for some reason I thought this would be similar to facebook groups or vbulletin groups.
Will this soon allow for posts?
Right now it seems to just update users in the group to what others in the group has posted.
A group "feed" of sorts can be done. It was built for a client, though perhaps I can re-do it properly at some point
Main point was that it kind of defeats the purpose of having a forum, when you can have your own special conversations inside of a group -- I don't know...
As limitx3m says it would be great if you could post directly to the group but I can see how that might be defeating the purpose of the forum. However, what about adding a reply button to the list of posts in the group to save you having to open the full topic?
Did you ever get any further with the change of upload so that it works without drag and drop?
Is there a way to publish topics to a specific group and allow only the members to see them?
@Fez-Vrasta similar question here:
Does the nodeBB group ACL concept propose the possibility to restrict threads to specific groups? Actually you have to ask the admin for getting a group-restricted area/category, where group members can share internal informations. Often a specific threads will do the job.
Thinking this thought a little bit further means: showing group specific categories, threads and posts in the group dashboard. Actually there are only the posts.
@julian i am using this plugin, https://community.nodebb.org/topic/11373/nodebb-plugin-groups-autoassigncategory-a-category-for-each-group/2 do u know where do i toggle that thing in ACP so that our users can create their own groups?
That should be available in Settings -> Groups
