BuddyPress Like will change in 0.0.9
Well done! Looking forward to the new version. I especially like the fact that you can like everything within the Network.
If you’re planning to write more about the plugin or BuddyPress on your blog, you can add your RSS feed to BP-Tricks.com so new blog post show up in the Stream on the homepage
Wow, awesome, just what we need and looks lightweight too! Awesome job!
Would it be possible to display a notice at the top(bar)?
Thank for your job
It would be great if there was a setting for each type of content that determines if the like button is displayed or not. That way you can determine which types of content can and can’t be liked (for instance, in case of blog posts one might prefer facebook like instead of a buddypress like or in case of pages it would be great if the like button could be disabled because it often doesn’t make sense to put a like button on a page).
Thanks in advance!
I’ve tried contacting @Hempsworth via a lot of different places but it does seem like he’s disappeared or given up on the plugin, or possible sick of me contacting him. If we can’t get in contact with him is anyone willing to take the code an fork it into a new like plugin. I’d take it up if I knew how too but unfortunately I’m not quite the genius that @Hempsworth is. I wouldn’t even know where to start I’m but a humble designer who wants ‘blog post likes’ to sync up with the ‘activity feed blog post likes’. Rather than they be counted as separate ‘likes’ it’s confusing. Anyway hopefully @Hempsworth will have a triumphant return otherwise were screwed for now.
@tindell – Sounds like we’re ‘screwed’. But just as I was reading your post I saw that another promising plugin is just now under development – http://buddypress.org/community/groups/creating-extending/forum/topic/rate-anything-new-plugin-in-development-soliciting-architecture-advice. Looks like a viable successor to the Like plugin! @Dwenaus
I use plugins as less as posible for this reason. But still there’s a big question– what if BuddyPress.org “disappeared” when it’s matured?

I did the same thing a while back — I’d extended it to work with forums posts and more and thought he might like to vet and roll up my changes into a new version. I never did get a response in any of the places I tried, so I gave up.
@stwc I would love to see the functionality your describing added to the plugin. I don’t know under what licensetype @hempsworth released the like-plugin, but maybe it would be possible for someone to fork it?
Meanwhile, could you make an exception and send me the changes you’ve made in a zip-file? I would be really greatfull if you did! My spamproof address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hempsworth is back on the case, so I think it’s best to see what he does with 0.09 before I share any of my janky code.
could anyone please point me on how to remove/ignore etc. these custom messages from 0.8?
they can not be translated (on multilingual www), if I leave text field empty, in activity filters I have blank cell. I think it is much more practically to have .po for every language (including default) and modify any text line as you want.
