Buddypress 1.2.6, 2 months late -.-
No they have only just been ALL resolved. The release of, I think, a release candidate should happen any day now.
To add – there is a statement on the roadmap which reads, “Due date is only to force the order of milestones and does not reflect any actual release schedule.”
for anyone to test it out and look for bugs – grab the branch:
Milestone 1.2.6 had a target date of 08/02/10.
Notice the term “target”.
It happens to us all now and then to miss a target.
Now imagine, if you will, several dozen kind folks collaborating on a huge coding project with input and wild ideas from several HUNDRED others.
In such a scenario, it is highly unlikely that the target date can be met.
Expectations vis-à-vis this community seem to be, to say the least, unrealistic and somewhat unkind. Especially considering that most invest their time and knowledge in projects while asking for nothing in return.
I would suggest you simply keep breathing; 1.2.6 will be available when it`s available.
Meanwhile, 1.2.5 continues to function…
John was going to put it out yesterday (Sunday) afternoon at WC NYC. John, Boone and I decided to grab a room which wasn’t planned for anything else and just wrote “BuddyPress” on the schedule. We thought we’d have a couple of questions and then time to get the release out and do some planning.
However, we had a fantastic response and had a lot of people coming in and asking all sorts of questions about BuddyPress. I want to let John release 1.2.6, as it’s his baby. I know John’s flying back home today — and I’m flying home tomorrow — so hopefully sometime this week? I really have nothing else to say other than sorry
I’m using latest branch which will be 1.2.6 on a pretty busy site at the moment (http://xfactor-updates.com/members/) and it’s extremely stable so far.
One thing I would say is that if you are upgrading & using a custom theme, you will have to make some updates to your functions.php.
Code to display join/leave group buttons and so on, secondary activity stream avatars as well as localisation for a few JS terms will need to be added.
All required code can be found in the latest bp-themes/bp-default/functions.php
now, if only @jeffsayre would give me access to an early release of his Privacy plugin, I’d be a happy man… users crying out for it & a large test bed…
Have you tried to make a contribution to: @jeffsayre It’s amazing what $$ can do to influence people.
@thekmen I try copy/pasting from the functions.php, but I get a blank page…any clue why?
thekmen’s advise should be noted to refer to a true custom theme rather than a child theme.
If you are running as a ‘child theme’ i.e you are using and referencing the bp-default files – even if you have copied over some to customise then that is a child theme and you are still loading the original functions.php so DON’T copy anything in it over to your own file as that duplicates or attempts to call the same function twice and that results in problems.
@crashutah TBH, I really need the @jeffsayre privacy plugin & still have no idea if it even requires custom template files if used on a non default theme…
I expect it to be a top class plugin as its coded by a top class coder & want to support it as much as possible but it’s pretty difficult when you are refused access.
If it requires custom templates, I’d like to be ready & provide those theme files in any themes I make ‘BuddyPress’ ready.
Other than that, I have a large test base & would love to have been involved in the testing process without having to pay for being a guinea pig but by paying back with user feedback.
Ok…thanks, that’s reassuring everything works fine now!
Ok….. time to release 1.2.6 now everyone is back and the gang is all here……
