I haven’t any good suggestions for your search for a good groups plugin, but if you do use Achievements (I’m the author), please leave me a review and some feedback on that WordPress.org page — thanks
BuddyPress uses the version of jQuery that comes with WordPress. You’re best to search for how to make WordPress do this change, then BuddyPress will use it.
> Without joining a group,can you post under that group on BuddyPress ? Is there any chance of it ?
If a group is public, you can post, but it’ll also automatically join the user to that group when they make that post. I don’t think there’s a way of mixing group permissions with posting permissions.
What type of group did you make? Public, private, hidden?
This is pretty close to the unix epoch date, which makes me suggest the ‘last activity’ timestamp isn’t being recorded correctly for that user. @ceric, if you log in as that user and click around a few pages, does it fix the display?
I’m sure someone will be along with some more helpful advice, but for a quick reply — this is to be expected. BuddyPress is working as it currently is meant to, and ignores any of the theme options around page customisations.
Email customisations is something we’re thinking about for a future release. Early next year, we’ll have a survey out, so this would be a great piece of feedback to give then if this matters to you.
You should have gotten a filename or line number along with the error message. I’m interested if it’s in a core BP file, or in another plugin, like Henry says.
Ah, don’t worry. We have our PHPUnit tests there — we don’t mean to include the tests in the release distributions of BuddyPress, it looks like we forgot to strip it out. It won’t be in the final build
I figured you were referring to the Activity table
Basically, we thought the way we do it now was a good solution several years ago. We were particularly concerned with how large the Activities DB table(s) might get, as we expect them (and probably still do) to be the tables with the largest amount of stored data as every other component adds stuff to the activity stream. If I remember correctly, the idea was that storing the entire string would be the quickest approach — and with the state of BuddyPress’ code base all those years ago, it was probably the right decision.
Several years later, the shortcomings are now fairly obvious — can’t filter it easily, if you change how the string is constructed – only new items have that new format, the old items keep their old format, can’t translate it very easily.
This is likely to be changed in a near-future release to a more dynamically constructed string of text, and the ticket @modemlooper linked to is a good place to keep an eye out if you’d like to help us build it.
Hi. Which theme are you using, what versions of WordPress and BuddyPress are you using, and where did you download the translation file from? Thanks.
Can you upload the .mo file you are using somewhere for us to test with? What versions of WordPress and BuddyPress are you using, too? Thanks.
No direct way of bulk-editing profile fields; sounds dangerously powerful. If you are a PHP/WordPress developer, or know someone who is, I’d suggest writing a script to make these changes for you.
Depends on where you want your users to upload images. It sounds like you want a user gallery kind of feature?
Not clear what you mean — what links do you mean, and how are you fetching them? Please could you provide some more context. Thanks.
everything is stored in the database as static HTML
Wrong. What specifically are you looking at? The Activity table?
Hello! This thread is mostly accurate, but just to wrap things up –
@jjj has been working at 10up.com since August, and I’ve been at Automattic since the beginning of 2013. John and I had been contributing to BuddyPress for years before we started at Automattic. Our day jobs only affect our contributions to BuddyPress in a positive way; as @henrywright-1 pointed out, John’s built a whole new notifications component since he’s been at 10up! Wow!
While Automattic does own BuddyPress and the trademark in a very legal sense — and it’s my personal wish that one day the BP trademark is transferred to the WordPress foundation — they have no influence over the day-to-day of the plugin, and John remains in charge of the ship.
If you want to use BuddyPress, then yes, you need these tables. Deleting these tables will cause all sorts of things to break. 3GB in activity seems extreme – be interesting to know what type of records are filling it up if you can get MySQL access.
The theme’s fine. The problem is actually caused by a bug in our widgets (you’re using the Members list and the “Who’s online?” widgets). We’re tracking the bug here https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5170 and currently aiming to fix it by the 2.0 release, which is probably 4 months away. If we get a fix before then, we’ll put it into a 1.9.x small release.
A workaround is to make sure that no BuddyPress widgets are rendered before the main content of the page. i.e. try moving the widgets to the right-hand column, or a widget area at the bottom of the page, or just removing the widgets.
