Hi, I tried this code but it doesn’t seem to do anything? Is there a change that needs to be made to it for latest BuddyPress versions?
I am not sure to be honest, I am using the Buddy theme, how do I know if it is a child theme or not??
I have WordPress 3.8.1 and Buddypress 1.8.1.
I had the same issue above where the notifications menu shows up twice.
This was with WordPress 3.8 and when I updated to Buddypress 1.9.1.
I went back to Buddypress 1.8.1 after this.
I haven’t tried it again since I updated to WordPress 3.8.1…
Perhaps I should??
Also, Buddy theme, but not updated recently as have modified the original theme a bit.
Hi aboudard,I don’t have a child theme, where do I put this code in to fix this problem?
Can I put it into by normal theme files somewhere?
Yes, exactly like BP 1.9, not sure what the update was supposed to do?
I have to restore my website from a backup now.
Sure but if I can’t write code how do I do this, is there a plugin that will rate and rank users in this way?
I’ve seen Achievements, but I don’t think this allows users to rate the QUALITY of other users’ comments eg. with star ratings.
I already use Cubepoints and have it setup such that each comment made gives a user 1 point, and the more points they have the higher the “rank” they have, eg. 25 points = Bronze, 50 points = Silver, 100 points = Gold – that’s all good. I think you’re supposed to be able to assign badges to each rank too, but I can’t get that to work for some reason with the Cubepoints Buddypress Integration plugin.
Anyway, I want to take this further and distinguish users based on the QUALITY of their comments. So to do this I need users to be able to rate each others’ comments. Doing this by star ratings would be preferable. Eg. if a user makes 5 comments, and 3 of those comments were rated 5 stars (out of 5) by other users, that user would have an overall rating of 5 stars based on 3 votes. Hence, people can identify this user as a higher QUALITY poster, to some extent at least.
The premium version of the Rating-Widget plugin does exactly this!
BUT, they are having some troubles with the load times of websites due to some issues with “Rich-Snippets” (my website becomes very slow when the plugin is activated), so I am looking for another alternative as I’m not sure how long it will take for them to fix this.
With GD star ratings I couldn’t find a simple way to do this, though I suspect it is possible with some customisation.
Will check out MyCred, but it looks similar to Cubepoints
