I’ll look into it, but you must tell me first which version of WordPress and Buddypress, and which theme are you running.
@Anointed – ok, I have managed to replicate your error. Seems to be something that happens with Internet Explorer. I only have IE8 here, but will test it with some other versions also.
EDIT: Yeah, it’s the hover tooltip script I use. I’ll find a better one.
@anointed – Got it, thanks, and it’s ok, don’t need access, I just want to look at which scripts and css load when the page loads.
@Anointed – I would like to have a look at your site, if you don’t mind. I’ll see if I can figure out what’s biting it.
New version is up, but not with the custom background stuff just yet. I’m taking my time with that because if I do it wrong I could end up causing big security craters in people’s sites. There are a few other features I am also holding back for the moment.
I have a plugin that might help:
Falls under the category: Slightly rough around the edges but kinda works.
EDIT: Just noticed that paulhastings mentioned it… yay. Update released just yesterday.
I’ll be commmitting a stable release this week. There’s a bajillion changes and the hop from 0.8 to 0.9 will seem a bit small for the amount of new stuff. The version numbers are screwy though since this was never meant to be more than just the two CSS features, and has since exploded into something more substantial.
Ahh, yeap, a wayward closing div. Also fixed.
@pcwriter The colour selector thingy is almost done. For your purposes you’ll be able to switch off the advanced css stuff and just have the colour selector and/or the wallpaper thingymaboo available to your users. It works by loading a css template with 6 custom colours. I’ll work on making it such that if you choose to customise the template and the preset colour schemes, it will be upgrade-proof. The way I am doing that is by having the plugin look for your (site admin) custom stuff in the currently active BP theme folder, which I assume for most sites will be a customised child theme anyway. If there’s aaaany issues with that, let me know.
@gregfielding Yep, see above… also almost done. It’s taking a bit longer because I don’t want to accidentally create a security crater in someone’s site and then be driven out by a mob with flaming torches and pitchforks.
@paulhastings0 That would be the very plugin of which I am speaking. And am considering a version for profiles. But one thing at a time.
On the site I am building that i pilfered this from initially, I do have Groupblog running, and it does indeed work there. I may have stripped out the necessary code to make this version work with it, but I’ll be sure to plonk it back in before I call it 1.0.
And by public profile, I meant a plugin for people to personalise their profile pages in the same way.
Okie, just one bump and then I’ll let the post vanish into the abyss.
Anyone with any idea where I could look for a solution?
“if he does get to a new version, that we have the option of suppressing the flurry of emails sent to the user when the Welcome Pack kicks in (or maybe there’s an easier way”
Hehe, when we first enabled the plugin on one of our sites, it created a mail queue so long, that due to our host’s spam-prevention mail limitations, it took three days to send out all the mails. Not a complaint though, Achievements is a fun plugin, and we have it on three of our installations.
Back on topic though. There was a forum post somewhere about how to write defaults into a plugin, but I can’t find it. Any ideas? I might just use Welcome Pack for self-educational purposes, but need it to do some more specific things.
I am going to take a wild guess here that your Apache installation is missing the mod_rewrite module. It should be easy to install and likely in your distribution’s software repository.
Just a guess.
Awesome suggestions, this is helping me understand a bit about how this thing was put together. However, implementing any of the code suggested above,for me, results in all activities having exactly the same avatar. Colour me confused.
