It would help if you would list all the plugins you are using. You really should bulk deactivate all of them except BuddyPress and re-activate each one individually and test registration against each one until you find the plugin that is causing your issue, and if that is not the problem you need to check your servers error logs.
I will try to do this plugin within my spare time without any guarantee of delivery time so it really depends on if I have the spare time and inspiration so unless another developer wants to overtake this project then you will have to be patient because it won’t be an overnight project at least for me right now.
Ahh I see now the reference in that article and it does mention forwarding received messages from friends. Sorry for the overlook @akovia what I don’t see though on my dev site is a way to facilitate forwarding a message even if you are friends with another user. If this is not a default feature with messages then it would probably be best to update that article as not to confuse folks.
Maybe it is a misunderstanding but I don’t see anything in the link you provided that would lead you to believe that there is a way to forward messages by default.
WordPress and BuddyPress were built for you to enjoy free without the agenda of getting people to pay for plugins/themes but most of the people that provide paid plugins/themes have nothing to do with the core development of WP/BP and they usually also have another job or depend on their development to make a living so I think it is a little unfair to expect the people that depend on the income for the time it takes them to develop a plugin/theme to not be compensated for their work. There are plenty of freebies in the WordPress repository so you should look there and if what your looking for isn’t there but there is a premium plugin that will do what you need or if you have to hire someone to provide custom code then expect they will expect to be compensated for their work. Not everything is going to be free! You can also post your project here: http://jobs.wordpress.net/ and specify that it is on an unpaid volunteer basis. You never know you just might get lucky with someone that will help you free of charge on a project that would take a good bit of time to code. Anyway, good luck with your endeavor!
Also keep in mind that @djpaul is one of the BuddyPress core developers so scolding him for simply providing a link to provide you info is not conducive to getting help when he already gives a lot of time to the BuddyPress project that you enjoy free of charge! Be humble and take all help for what it is worth without getting defensive on the forums. Peace and good luck!
Just a piece of advice but if you don’t trust a developer to pay them for their work, then why should the developer trust that you will pay them? I’ve dealt with people that say they want something developed that will accomplish a certain task, and I test it myself then they say “that is not what I expected” even though it was exactly what they described and they refused payment for my time. In other words I lost time and money and most likely this customer just said “that is not what I expected” just to get the work done and duck paying my fee and that is why I now have a different payment arrangement. The way I feel now is if you are that mistrusting or you just don’t want to pay for a developers time and expertise then spend your time researching and learning to code your own projects and then you will be in a better place.
Free code snippet
I personally would use the code snippet because its FREE, it is not hard to implement in bp-custom.php or your themes functions.php
You really need to be more clear in what you hope to achieve. If you have WordPress installed and have also installed and activated BuddyPress then there is already a connection with MySQL and the BP tables are already created.
The best answer and advice I can give is that you are at the mercy of the volunteers which give help in their free time. Patience and persistence will pay off and keep in mind that it is not polite to bump your support request unless you have not received a reply in 24 hours and only bump every 24 hours thereafter. Also keep in mind that there is no obligation or expectation that any volunteer will have the answers your looking for. If your support request is that urgent you may want to consider hiring a professional on the jobs board. Good luck!
Done and thanks!
Thanks @aces for confirming the issue as well as a temporary solution! Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
I am fairly certain you could fork that plugin if you wanted with some of the additions you made as well as others being that it is GPL and adding the support for BP etc. and adding it to the repository but you should give the original authors credit as well as any contributor. I am sure other BP users would love a plugin to help with profanity that they didn’t have to modify because not everyone is comfortably adding code, of course this is just a suggestion and I thought about doing it a few years back but I prefer writing my own code because I know it best but if you or someone else does it I think it would be a welcome addition. Good luck!
Nothing in /wp-content/languages is touched during an upgrade just as a child theme also is not touched during a parent theme upgrade. Whomever conveyed using a language file is bad practice for translation is terribly misinformed. You are right by not agreeing Henry. The fact is this particular files directory has to be created by the admin in cpanel, ftp, or whatever they use for their server and is not replaced nor overwritten with core upgrades.
No, the languages file in /wp-content/languages doesn’t get deleted upon upgrading WordPress.
Have you associated buddypress pages in dashboard/settings/buddypress/pages?
This tends to happen when one does not check the anyone can register box beside membership in dashboard/settings/general before activating buddypress because then the pages are not automatically associated. You will have to manually associate the pages.
Add this if your using that old outdated plugin:
/* Stop errors if any */ error_reporting(E_ERROR | E_PARSE); /* End Stop Errors */
I’m sure there is help but if your selling a plugin that was initially a free plugin that Rich Fuller, Sarah Gooding, as well as myself contributed too then don’t expect folks are going to do the work for you without some form of compensation. This code is old and its been years since I retested it so it is redundant at this point. I hope if you get things squared away you at least give credit to those who contributed to this plugin in the past.
You failed to mention it is a paid plugin and being that you are a new developer according to this thread: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/i-am-a-new-buddypress-plugin-developer-and-busy-to-create-a-new-plugin/
I don’t think it would be wise at this juncture in your development to expect people would pay for a small mod of the “friends only activity” plugin authored by Rich Fuller as well as Sarah Gooding which is old and that is what it appears to be according to your other thread here: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/need-some-modification-for-friends-only-activity-plugin/
I believe folks should make money on plugins but not by using a majority of someone else’s code from a previous and a kinda old plugin. Plus @megainfo has a really great free plugin on the repo that is very flexible here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-activity-privacy/
And if one doesn’t need all those features then @shanebp offered a code solution which works well here: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/only-friendsyou-in-activity-feed-has-solution-been-found/
Either way good luck!
