    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.

    My Plugins:

    ===============

    — Confirmed Update Friendly —-

    Tweetstream

    Facestream

    BP Group Management

    BP Groupblog

    BP Expand Activity

    Invite Anyone

    BuddyPress Forums Extras (all)

    BuddyPress Like

    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.
