admin editable fields for groups. Basically the exact same thing as xprofile fields but for groups. This is the kind of thing that makes more sense in core than a plugin.
I second that.
Better customisation options of the activity stream: ie to be able to define a set of “or” filters for content type, and who. So (with plugin support) I can define a feed to include things from “me or friends or followers” showing “topics and topic replies and posts and new users” (and ideally be able to have a permalink to this with no other fluff on display). The current activity feed selectors are a mess and don’t provide what most people want to see.
There are about 50-75 Premium BuddyPress themes online for sale and 99% of them have the same activity stream page-layout. While all those premium theme developers can do lots of customization to all other pages the activity stream is like Twitter’s Bootstrap to BuddyPress it always tells you it’s a BuddyPress website without looking at the code.
In other words, this issue has already been fixed. Now it is upto the theme developers to customize the feed aesthetics to their hearts’ content.
a fragment caching system
I totally agree with you, and would love to see fragment caching in BuddyPress (or more generally in WordPress)
That being said, if WordPress doesn’t include caching in core, it’s highly unlikely that BuddyPress would. If you created a ticket for this in Trac, it would probably quickly be closed as plugin territory.
API so we could build mobile apps
Just “API” is a bit vague. Do you, perhaps, want to create a ticket, with exactly what you are after, at http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ ?
I assume you are aware of the existing API http://codex.buddypress.org/developer/action-reference/
It would be nice for an admin to be able to define additional types of friendships either independently, or by associating a scale (an integer valued friendship, 1=I want to see your feed stuff 2=online mates 3=actual real life chums 4=we’re married)
If I remember correctly friends were changed to a type of groups earlier this year. The kind of friendship levels/ privacy settings you request may actually be a use case for hierarchical groups then.
Guess I didn’t check the announcement carefully enough…I was genuinely expecting the new template pack in 1.9
@bphelp What do you know…1.9 Beta is out already… http://buddypress.org/2013/11/buddypress-1-9-beta-1-is-now-available/
Maybe I should change these to 2.0 feature requests…
We’ll see more patches from you in the future, yes?
@mercime I hope so.
You should be able to run a tortoise checkout with this url.
Ah, I see. I was clicking Import instead of SVN Checkout.
I’m using these plugins combined: bbPress, BuddyPress and BuddyPress Media (rtMedia).
I wish that the maximum image files uploaded in ‘album’ (bp-album, I guess) …
I think it’s not from rtMedia
It’s getting a bit confusing. You need to figure out which plugin is creating the album that you want to modify and then you need to ask that plugin’s author for support. BuddyPress does not provide any media capabilities by default, though that has been requested.
P.S. rtMedia (previously known as BuddyPress Media) does create a Media tab. And it creates various albums under that tab.
@hnla Ok, good opportunity for me to learn how Trac works. How do I submit a patch? Just edit the file and create a diff and upload that?
You can check out and download older versions at http://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress/developers/
@kakilo How are you uploading profile images anyway? BP does not offer such a function by default.
(or are you talking about photos uploaded into activity stream?)
@asieger A rather basic question: Have you checked the Spam folders in your email accounts?
I would be happy to contribute to codex as well. But to a user codex as opposed to a developer codex. Even though BuddyPress is now easier than it used to be, there are plenty of things new users (site admins) ask again and again – these are recurring themes on the forums. If you look at the WordPress “documentation”, it explains concepts in a clear and simple manner accessible by even novice users.I would be happy to contribute to codex as well.

@bphelp 17 July and 1.8 is out. Hallelujah, and hope lives on for 1.9 around year-end or Jan/Feb 2014…
@hnla It is a good idea, but only works if it is institutional and tech-enabled. e.g. An area on this website dedicated to that pursuit that enables developers to bid on projects and “crowds” to “promise” money (via some sort of escrow or another, simpler system)…it is important to know both – what the developers need for the project, and what the crowds are willing to pay…
