@naijaping Unfortunately I’ve decided to knock this theme on the head. Downloads have been made available of both versions that made it to the light of day.
I’m no longer motivated to work on this design and the heavy codebase is getting me down so i’ve decided to move on.
It probably needs a day or two of solid work to finish off all of the areas that have been built for the theme.
Beyond that, BBPress support could be added. This is something I never got round to.
It’s been a good exercise of working with BuddyPress, but I it is a long process when theming for BP.
Anyway… moving on now.
Hi @funmi-omoba I should have a download link available soon but looks like im going to retire from development. Would be nice to see you involved.
I’ve had a few signups since putting this post out, but no one is active yet.
Would love to get more people involved, I plan to release some BuddyPress tutorials in the future also and maybe build a new theme for the site and record along the way.
Yeah, I was thinking about learning SASS just to use the framework. Claymate looks cool. Also like the bower support it has.
@henrywright Ah that’s cool. I thought about using a framework but figured it’s much more learning than I wanted to commit to.
The Gumby framework is pretty nice.
I think that’s what I’m getting at with this theme.
It’s deliberately neutral, which is maybe counter-productive. I feel it could be a catch-all with a neutral design, the content of the demograph would speak for itself.
I don’t think there’s enough time in the day to build a theme for multiple audiences.
I’d like to get this theme to a stage where it’s robust enough to maybe start a community on a whim, but it’s not quite there yet.
Ultimately I think I want to retire from theme building, and have this as a going away gift to myself. That all said, it’s not very satisfying.
I get what you’re saying though and yes the headaches suckkk.
Do you have any audiences in mind? Maybe we could tackle a personal project together @henrywright ?
I keep getting frustrated with the code I’m writing. It seems verbose and hurts my head. ^^
Can any of you guys envision who would use a theme like this? Feels like i’m building for no one but myself, and that’s not too wise.
@bilalvirgo10 I’d love for you to join in, I’ll be uploading my theme shortly. You can take a copy and look at the code to help with learning.
@mercime thanks! I got there, it’s now on version 0.2 I tighter design, WordPress options and soon BuddyPress support. I despise BBPress theming though, it just aint that much fun.
@buddyboss Thanks man, i’m not looking at it as a paid gig.
The theme is probably going to go through one more complete re-design before I settle on features also and skin BBPress.
I’ve updated the home page, to outline a little information about this theme.
The blog is a good place to get involved right now, if anyone wishes to.
I just found this function
<?php bp_group_member_joined_since(); ?
It does exactly what I need.
Thanks for the help.
<div class="activity-comments"> <?php bp_activity_comments(); ?>
I could just make it a list… Shouldn’t be too much trouble.
@hnla I’ve validated the page but there are 2 niggling malformed markup issues, but it’s related to BuddyPress functions.
I looked at the code for bp_activity_comments, which leads to bp_get_activity_comments which leads to bp_activity_recurse_comments, which in turn has 2 filters applied to the template
echo apply_filters( 'bp_activity_recurse_comments_start_ul', '<ul>');
echo apply_filters( 'bp_activity_recurse_comments_end_ul', '</ul>');
I need to remove these as they are messing with the markup.
I’ve tried the following…
But this doesn’t work. Any ideas?
I don’t know of any core functions off the top of my head… It’s been a while since I’ve used WPDB but will take a look.
No, how would you debug this loop? The loop finishes and returns nothing.
@hnla @henrywright yeah I whole heartedly agree, although I’ve began to realise over the past year I’m a bit of a poor coder but have all these huge ambitions. That said, I wanted to finally complete something of relative worth and without re-studying my poor coding this is the way forward. I believe it’s not a complete minefield, the markup is tidy and the CSS isn’t so bad. The niggling problems can be fixed at the end in a bug fixing cycle.
@ekine thanks for the heads up about that, I’ll be focussing my efforts with this theme for now.
1. I’m not sure how to port that functionality to groups.
2. I plan on adding a cookie plugin to remember the various header toggle states also.
3. Yeah, I thought that.
1. Yeah there is a disconnect, you are right. I’ll try and think about a way of bringing them together or making them function well independently.
2. Not sure which one you mean here.
Lots of bugs, have never built something like this. It’s a big undertaking.
<?php if(is_user_logged_in()) : ?> <?php bp_get_template_part('members/members-loop'); ?> <?php endif; ?>
This will hide your members directory unless you are logged in to the site.
Thanks for the tips @henrywright .
I’m not sure which will be the best way to go but you’ve given 2 fine places for sure.
It would be good to guage interest for the theme, I’ve uploaded the work in progress to http://pixelcoder.co.uk
Group creation isn’t styled yet, but most other places have something at play.
Any ideas how to get some feedback for this?
