Burt, congratulations on yet another nice, feature-rich version!
thank you for the plugin.
i installed it but it does not work correctly. (bp 1.0 – wpmu 2.7.1)
“contents” appears well in my admin profile
when i click on “profile” or “site admin” i receive the error: “access denied” – “page not found or not avaible”.
the current address looks there like http://xxxx.com/members/admin/contents
Also, when plugin is site wide activated, i can no more access to the member or group page.
thanks for help.
Did you move the template directory /oci-contents/oci-contents to /bp-themes/bpmember/oci-contents?
Yes i did…
i tested both alpha version (1&2) with the same result.
Seems to be a path malfunction somewhere. Damned 404…
Are you using the standard bp member theme? That is the error message that you will get when bpc can’t find the template files. The bpc template directory is /plugins/oci-contents/oci-contents not the entire plugin directory. I’ve put the entire plugin directory in the member theme directory by mistake before.
At least, i installed the alpha2 plugin on another site where it work correctly !
This one is also a bp 1.0 – wpmu 2.7.1 “out of the box” configured on a mutualized hosting. (mysql/5.0.45, Apache/2.2.4, PHP/5.2.3). 15 widget
The not working site is on a dedicated server, (mysql/5.0.45, Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS), PHP/5.1.6) with nearly same BP settings. 9 widget.
Ok now i became the right output !
I didn’t use the bpmember theme, but facebuddy…
So i put the bpc template directory into it and it works.
Think to tell in the readme file, that each member theme must be charged with the oci-content folder, not only the default bpmember theme.
So another question: what about translation ? Can you provide a .po or a .pot file for the plugin ? Or a list of all expression, phrase,etc that are already localised, so i can create the pot file myself. I have not much time to search througt all files…
THANK YOU. One beer for you at this time.
Can I ask what this plugin does?
I went to your site, and read the same post, but am still uncertain as to what this plugin actually does.
Maybe give an example or two of ‘real world use’ ?
you can categorize your content.
This means that you can as site or single blog admin,
- sort the blogs by thematics (fruits, pets, music,etc related)
default BP sort all blogs by name. The plugin sort them additionnaly by theme.
- each member can asign himself to one or more thematics
default BP sort all members by name. The plugin sort them additionnaly by theme.
- create categories as well.
Here you create a category food – for the fruit theme, a category animals for the pets blogs, a category cluture for the music blogs, and so on…
And a tag system follows all your settings over the whole site. Also a few widget to display the work nicely.
Looks like a portal structure. And it is so far. Still alpha, but great possibilities for the future i think.
Anointed, it allows you to tag members, groups and blogs in the same way you tag blog posts or forum posts.
Chouf1, I’ll update the readme.txt to say ‘Your currently active bp theme’.
Cool ! Merci beaucoup
Now I’m waiting for translation please.
What about this ?
date_created: 1970-01-01 01:00:00
is showing for all items
table: wp_oci_terms. Witch terms ?
“date” has same trouble as above
“descrition” is empty.
chouf1, I don’t have any .po files for this at all. I’m aware of the date issue. The terms table description is empty because there is no description for all the terms. Just name and slug. There is no way to maintain the name or description of the terms being created in this version.
“which terms?’ The terms the table holds all the terms for the tags and categories in bpc. Each tag/category is an instance of a term. When you create a tag what you are actually doing is creating a node in the content tree:
var $node_type; // container, item
var $node_type_id; // id of to container or item in appropriate table
var $node_type_id_type; // type of item if item
The node var $node_type_id points to a record in the terms table if the $node_type is a container (tag or cat). All tags with the same slug share the same term. So the tag ‘burt’ in one member’s profile refers to the same term as tag ‘burt’ in another member’s profile.
OK , this will help me. Thank you for your work again.
It’s raining a little today, so i would probably find a moment to create a pot file.
I tell you when it is ready.
Yes, thanks Daniel. I got your .po, .mo files. Much appreciated. Your suggestion about the language file setup will be in the next version.
Worked great for me! Running BP1.0.1 and MU 2.7.1. This is a great plugin @burtadsit. I’ve already gone through and added my group categories and some blog categories. One peculiar thing that happens is that the case of the text is not be honored when submitting new categories. If I type ‘Politics’ it will add it as ‘politics’. I would like the first letter of the word to be capitalized. Should I apply a CSS transform on the display widgets or is this just a bug?
@roy mckenzie, it should accept upper case. New categories for which area? Members, Groups or Blogs?
So far Groups and Members.
I should note that only twice would the newly created Categories come back with a capitalized letter after being submitted.
@roy , well what happens is that when you create a category, doesn’t matter where, it uses the exact string you type in as the title for the term and then strips it down and sanitizes it for the term’s slug. Part of that stripping and sanitization is to convert the title to lower case.
If you use a non-capitalized word such as ‘burt’ the first time you create the term. That becomes the title and the slug. If you use ‘Burt’ the first time a term is created then the title becomes ‘Burt’ and the slug becomes ‘burt’.
See the post above about terms. In any case if anywhere, in any tag or category use a lower case word then it uses that lower case word as the title.
I’m working on alpha 3 which will include the ability to alter the title and description for terms after they are created.
Hey Burt – cool thing!
I am testing it at the moment and a couple things came to my mind:
1. It would be great, if there is a sitewide total-tags and total categories thing… (Members, Blogs, Groups and Blog-Posts). If a member searches for a tag “climbing” he would be interested in other members, in groups, blogs with that topic and posts. For me that would be a main goal!
2. It would be great, if I could force people to choose a category, when they create a group or a blog. Only just a few of my members would add that afterwards…
I think it’s a great tool your plugin! Thanks alot!
using v. 10a21
where is the member list ?
bpcontents seems to overide some bp settings.
As a normal user, when i go to http://xxxx.com/members page, i see an empty profile page.
When logged as admin /members/?category=XYZ i see my profile and samething when clicking any other member!
Also the profile did not show my avatar, but the mystery icon on this page.
while using v. 1.0a2
Memberlist appears well with ALL members, semms that cat. sorting did not work.
Member link goes to the normal profile page and avatar is showing.
