I’m fine with a donate-to-support-this-plugin approach. It seems to work well for some “freemium” plugins.
The most crucial thing right now is making sure that BuddyPress Links works with BuddyPress 1.5 at all. I got it working by replacing the is_site_admin() function with is_super_admin() (see http://codex.wordpress.org/WPMU_Functions/is_site_admin). This at least enabled the plugin to get activated and do its job, although it still breaks the new method of creating Pages for active components…
I’m wondering about the same thing. So far, I had no luck finding any workable solution.
While I’m reasonably familiar with WordPress, BuddyPress is still a mystery to me, namely, I have no clue (yet) on how to post an “activity” from within a BuddyPress plugin. The trick here, as I see it, is somehow exposing an API that allows remote sites to insert an “activity” when a button is pressed. Now this is something I know how to do using WP’s standard XML-RPC API for posts/pages/comments and so forth. BuddyPress, however, seems to have a completely different taxonomy, and none of those calls are exposed by WP’s API. Someone has a semi-abandoned project to create a XML-RPC API for BuddyPress, but it was all of a sudden abandoned a few weeks ago, the author claiming to have been victim of hackers, and deleting all documentation, examples, and warning plugin users that he wouldn’t support BP any longer.
@nuprn1, since you’ve pretty much abandoned this project, could you at least post your documentation elsewhere? I’m willing to give it a try, but so far, from Google cache and similar archiving facilities, I just get very broken and incomplete snippets of code explaining how to use your plugin, none of them really working. For example, it lost the ability to add the required API keys to users’ profiles, and without those, I can’t even begin to create a test environment for your plugin…
I understand that you have been hacked or something and are not willing to support this project any longer, but it would be a pity to see such excellent work being put to waste just due to lack of documentation!
All the best for your new projects, whatever they might be!
