@cuisire_ceo It depends but found the following most useful after googling so much to only come up with garbage past dated scraped/syndicated content.
The most important question is what the Purpose for Your BuddyPress Use/Community. The only way I have wrapped my head around it is to work backwards but with that said…
Heres What I consider some of the Best Round Ups and Buddy Pep to Follow:
Also check out her book that only seems most current: https://buddypress.org/2013/11/buddypress-theme-development-by-tammie-lister/
Boone Gorges @boonebgorges http://wordpress.tv/speakers/boone-gorges/ and most notable this presentation: http://wordpress.tv/2013/12/10/boone-gorges-herding-cats-with-the-buddypress-activity-component/
or anything Boone from Youtube via WordPressNYC great example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPpU3ySo5q0 in understanding of GROUPS.
Of course John James Jacoby jjj @johnjamesjacoby (sorry jjj: he rambles often:) but found this useful in just using a simple profile I believe this is the session maybe others can reference it “WordPress Profiles” http://wordpress.tv/2013/10/04/john-james-jacoby-everything-you-want-to-know-about-bbpress-and-buddypress/
So you probably thinking Wow but you have not answered anything on installing Believe me it helps so much to think big picture of your whole community than start working backwards as single page/components to map similarities to constructed it.
This is one of the most useful tutorial of theme I had purchased which the developer went MIA but it was an AHA moment for me. Because Buddypress are Custom Post Types thats Relational Data/Fields
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc3Er4S4EeQ & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7b9TFw6ZAQ
. I know what you thinking this is not my intent or not relevant. Start watching #2 at 2:16 to think in context of Simalirty.
Finally, The only other best other video tutorial that just a setup instruction. I have found online was BuddyBoss (don’t even own the Theme) http://www.youtube.com/playlistlist=PL5kBYJSuuvEj3KqG_lnAa9MxpZumjtTdY
and Mathis on VIMEO. The biggest problem is finding the resources in a central location so I have to track down.
I hope that helps as resources. It really would depend on how you see your community of your people and how its relational in context
I would think you could use the normal import/export wordpress plugin as long you have the buddy press installed. How much do you needing to export to import.
Not sure but Did you confirm your WordPress Settings http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/register-and-activation-pages/ having Membership Checked.
@davidbisset I probably should booked that as my first ever wordpcamp & buddycamp. You seem to get it – innovative solutions business can use through educating!!!
I have never been to any camps; I live atlanta but what I have seen on wordpress.tv — not impressed. Most of all camps seemed to gear around those in the design/development industry ; instead creating educating tracks for startups/small businesses that’s not about blogs which equals in lost opportunities/exposure and at the core relationship building.
In closing, I am commending you on your wordcamps because seems to be some of the best.
I curious when the results of the survey will be released. Thanks for all your hardwork guys
Try changing to orginial members slug which is 1. You may have to delete that slug page and also clear the trash.
Just a suggestion I am not dev just a user
I would try upgrading to to wordpress 3.8. I am not developer though just a thought.
I believe it’s accomplish by http://codex.buddypress.org/buddypress-components-and-features/activity-streams/ Activity streams unless you are are wanting to add the bbpress forums.
@hugo was not attention to discredit anyone. Just an effort from someone attempting to contribute to the buddypress project because I know only few that contribute (via stalking or following); which is only a handful: @boonebgorges , @jamesjjacoby, tammie leister, ray, @modernlooper, @sarah . That’s just the dew I know off the top of my head.
I am not developer & barely knew hmtl/CSS a few months ago, I am just learning functions, fields, &php which is completely out of my realm. I only attempting to contribute by noticing this miss lap/division of the WordPress community as a whole, that could be learned nor have to recreate the wheel by learning to utilize the bb’s potential.
What made me think of posting this in the first place was a review of make.wordpress.org and watching the discussions on the metaphoris project enhancing the metafields/metadata in wordpress.
That’s when I thought my buddypress already has included the ability for profile fields with text, select, radio, Multi select elements….why not look at what buddypress has done!
I purely believe that presence on the make.wordpress.org can increase awareness in the general wordpress user exposure but more importantly the wordpress developer involvement as a whole.
At this point, is the only way i feel I can contribute with out technical experience is via feedback & observation of what seems disconnect in community awareness of buddypress.
Sorry to go on a rampage but noticed also that bbpress has some documentiion on how to style.
My only purpose is to insure inclusiveness and encouragement of wordpress community as one.
Thanks. I am happy to help in anyway to contribute; if it testing a local version or so what…you just will have to tell how…LOL. I will certainly try.
Sorry to go on rampage
Thanks for sharing @modernlooper — I will check it out on how to contribute.
I think there could be room made at Make.Wordpress.org to encourage BuddyPress Community Engagement & Exposure because I see discussion merely on metadata group or other adhoc groups.
