BuddyPress Like

    I’ve just submitted my first plugin to the WP Plugin repo, it adds the ability for users to ‘like’ activities on a users stream.

    Still in a basic state, I’m going to be updating it over the coming days to include many other social areas of BuddyPress.

    Download it now and give it a go!

    That’s awesome! Once we upgrade to 1.2 we’ll definitely give it a spin on our site.

    Hey Hempsworth, looks good!

    But, do you think it would have made more sense to take advantage of BP’s already-available favorite button?

    This would be good if it notified the poster of content that you liked something. The favorite to me is more for a user to bookmark content.

    I’ve just put out a new version which allows you to view who else has liked it.

    @modemlooper: I will be building in notifications next, but it looks like I have to make the plugin a full blown component to leverage the notifications functionality… :S

    Unfortunately you will have to delete the old data from wp_bp_activity_meta and wp_usermeta before installing the new version. Sorry guys, it’s so new I don’t have an upgrade routine!

    You can do this using phpMyAdmin or similar.

    Grab the new version here: http://www.alexhemptonsmith.com/downloads/bp-like.zip

    Since you know about the activity stream, is it possible you could help answer a question?

    My fresh install of wp + bp (all latest releases) does not succeed in writing activity records. Running on Win2k8, MySQL 5.1.4.2, php 5.2.11, IIS 7. Any ideas?

    Css issues with viewing likes for activities like 2 people becomes friends

    Cool. I could be wrong but I think that on Facebook the idea of “like” is not just to tell someone you like something… but to also modify the algorithm on the news feed. That’s getting really complex though… and would be irrelevant to BuddyPress since BuddyPress shows ALL activity anyway. Well… you can filter it of course… but there is no algorithm that decides that it thinks you might be most interested in.

    Good plugin Hempsworth!!!!, I’m going to try it right now :D

    The plugin is now hosted over on the WP.org plugins directory, please remove any data the plugin may have saved in ‘wp_bp_activity_meta’ or ‘wp_usermeta’ before installing. You won’t have to do this again, as I have DB upgrade methods in place.

    I’ll be able to push updates to y’all using the Plugin Installer now, or if you’re feeling adventurous checkout the SVN repo into your plugins directory and run off trunk.

    Enjoy :)

    i’m getting a strange error on wp trunk & bp trunk ~ screenshot

    I have multi site enabled, revisions from this morning… upon clicking ‘like’, seems to be an endless spinning.gif and then my default apache page is called into a frame of sorts upon hovering over any href’d link on the default apache page.

    This doesn’t work for me. It’s because you are using AJAX to post to / which does not work for installations that are not in the root.

    You need to make it post to the variable ajaxurl which will post to the correct location regardless of where WP is installed.

    Also – please read this: :)

    a community that might get 10+ people like an item might be an issue.

    trying to figure out how to display the items in ul li format.

    and may limit it to display later on?

    Very Nice work Hempsworth, maybe now you’ll get requests for a dislike button. ;)

    @xp02ed: Yep, I’ve had this thought too and I’m working on improving the list of likers..

    I’m thinking about only showing the names of other friends who have liked it, and saying “and 3 others” for the remaining likers.. Thoughts?

    Also, I’m working on notifications at the moment; are there any other feature requests from you guys?

    @Hempsworth: first of all, great job! The plugin is amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    I have 1 feature request: I would like to be able to choose what activities the members are allowed to like. For example: they can only like forum posts and group creations.

    Regarding limiting the likers to just friends, as long as you make it an option, I bet there’s a lot of people who might find that useful.

    I definitely see 4 different usage scenarios for this:

    1 – “open”: you can see the name of everyone who liked it;

    2 – “mixed”: you can only see the names of your friends (” and x others” just like your example above);

    3 – “closed”: you can only see numbers (total of people who like it)

    4 – “private mode” (more a privacy setting than a real scenario): no one sees what you like except you.
