url for groups

I am completely new to Orchard and pretty new to MVC, so this may be a simple question.

I am interested in using Orchard to allow users to create private groups. Each group would have its own url, for example:

 

mysite.com/the-johnson-family

mysite.com/the-smith-family

The url would correspond to a group id so that content for that group can be displayed. What would be the best approach to handle this? I am converting a site that already have tens of thousands of groups

 

thx in advance!

Seems like you would create your own content type for these groups, and a part that can be added to users in order to associate them with groups. I'd recommend reading the 1-N and N-N relationship topic in the documentation.
