(1) I think that replies should be a standard messaging feature alongside your inbox and @mentions – which would move @mentions from activity to messaging.
(2) It would be cool if your replies had a filter called “conversations” where you could filter the various conversations you were having to stop the reply stream getting too long and you could keep tabs on “who said what”, etc.
There is a number of forum problems on other threads at the moment – I’m having issues too. I can post to the forums but my subscribers now can’t…
I am having the same issue – which is a problem because I’m not a coder and I have a now-dead forum on a brand new site.
It’s weird though because I can post… but none of my members can. Luchy for me they haven’t noticed yet as they aren’t that internet savvy…
I have a test site with exactly the same plug-in set up but it works fine for both admin and a test subscriber – so go figure! I’m thinking it may be a widget conflict rather than a plugin as I have switched them all off and on and nothing. Could this be possible?
All this was happening on wp 2.9.? ( the last version before wp3.0 ) and on the last version of bp before the latest version.
I have exactly the same issue as per your first post here Jeff… although my site is public.
I’d like to iron out the crease in my forum too. the website is at http://www.my-kinesiologist.com/
It seems that I can post, but my subscriber members can’t – they just get the error message “Sorry, there were no forum topics found.”. Not sure why. One member who has editor rights on the site can’t post to groups other than the one she has created…
Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks. Brendan
True? Okay then, what’s the fundamental difference between the two? I.e. Would it be easier to bite the bullet now and set up WPMU now so that later I can offer blog functionality? ( I only think about 5% of my users would want that feature anyway; I think I will just elect the best members for roles as contributors… )
I’m trying to scale things back to the bare minimum-but still offer a great service if you know what I mean? They are low-end internet users so they won’t care.
Okay then, how does Buddypress do on a standard Wp install… I.e. Will my web host crack it? Thanks for the insights…
Hi there Modemlooper,
The basics I can do and have installed buddypress on a test site. My problem is really with getting a concept of how it all works.
I am setting up a WORDPRESS Buddpypress premium member website. I’ve had a BIG respon$e to my first tweets about the idea and people want in on my project, but alas, I’m no tech geek!!! So I have customers but no website, lol!
What I need to know at this point is this should I go down the road of using (a) standard WP for my site or (b) use WPMU for my premium website? I want to set it up properly and put a good foundation under it before it goes live.
— > It will be a basic member directory for low-level internet users, with groups and forums and there will be only ONE main blog. I am relatively wordpress / website savvy ( 7/10 ) but lack deeper knowledge of what makes them tick ( 1/10 – I can use filezilla ) and get lost in all the terms; i.e. perl, mysql, etc.
I’m intelligent however, so right now I need a stick-figure concept of Buddpress and the difference between WP and WPMU ( and why it is always quoted as being ‘above the average users head’ which it may be, but I have customers to serve so I want to go ahead with the project. )
Cool if you can point me in the right direction – demand for the service is growing and I haven’t even put the site up yet! Yee-hah!!
