Are these Plugins Update-Friendly?
As Andy Peatling mentioned to me in Twitter, here a list of the plugins I am using in my BuddyPress installation. Since some plugins have been known to break BuddyPress on upgrade, I would be very happy on your feedback as to the upgrade-friendliness of the plugins in this list. The ones in square brackets aren’t specifically BP so they shouldn’t be a problem.
Deactivating all plugins is a not-so-nice solution for BuddyPress, I hope the ugrade-friendliness-quality issues of plugins will be solved soon.
— Confirmed Update Friendly —-
BP Group Management
BP Expand Activity
BuddyPress Forums Extras (all)
oEmbed for BuddyPress
— Not Update Friendly (crashes site) —-
Group Forum Subscription for BuddyPress
BuddyPress Album+ ( is_site_admin() doesn’t exist in WP 2.9.2 should be current_user_can(‘install_plugins’) )
Welcome Pack ( crashes on WP2.92 if BP is not active because it uses get_blog_option() )
— Potentially Future Not Update Friendly (does not crash site but needs updating) —
BP Group Documents (doesn’t crash but does not use a bp_init loader)
Enhanced BuddyPress Widgets (doesn’t crash but does not use a bp_init loader)
BuddyPress Maps (uses old method, needs updating to use bp_init loader)
BuddyPress My Friends Widgets (uses old method, needs updating to use bp_init loader)
BuddyPress Rate Forum Posts (doesn’t crash but does not use a bp_init loader)
BuddyPress Widget Pack (uses old method, needs updating to use bp_init loader)
*** Update from apeatling ****
Plugin Authors — If your plugin does not appear in the “Confirmed Update Friendly” PLEASE UPDATE IT ASAP. It’s really important as your plugins are crashing/have the potential to crash users WordPress installations when BuddyPress is updated.
This will take you less than 5 minutes to do if you create a loader.php file add the code in the link below, then just include your existing main plugin file when BuddyPress has loaded.
