    @mrmaz

    Sorry for yet another thread, but a lot of people are saying they are waiting for final to even test this out. Mods please feel free to close my other threads.

    I just tagged 0.3 final. Read all about it here:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-links/

    If you are upgrading from the 0.2.x branch, read the readme.txt VERY carefully!

    Thanks to everyone who helped with this release! Also thanks to Andy for making BuddyPress Links a featured plugin.

    Very cool! I’m glad that people are starting to play with extending this plugin. I tried hard to provide as many hooks as possible.

    If you want to avoid hacking the core template you could do something like this in your functions.php:

    function my_selfserv_sexy() {
    if( function_exists( 'selfserv_sexy' ) ) {
    selfserv_sexy();
    }
    }
    add_action( 'bp_link_header_meta', 'my_selfserv_sexy' );

    Now you can upgrade the plugin without having to modify the template each time.

    @MrMaz, please change the font color next to the globe icon to a link color, not the gray color

    Users of the site had noooo idea that that text to the right of the globe icon are links. Since its large, in a heading font and gray, it’s reasonable for someone to have difficulty finding out that that’s how you get to the links.

    Could you please update the code so it’s the same font color as links elsewhere on the site?? Thank you.

    Just override the style in your child theme.

    @geoffm33 the default avatar for the plugin: http://i49.tinypic.com/k3at76.png

    @MrMaz I can do that, but I’m a novice/intermediate user. What part of the stylesheet should I look to? If the large link text is a link, but not the same color as other links on the site, what is its “name” in the stylesheet?

    Thank you.

    @MrMaz Is it safe to run the latest version on a single WordPress Install 2.9.2 with BP 1.2.1? If not when do you think the new version will came out?

    @MrMaz I notice a bug under WordPress single install 2.9.2 with BP1.2.1 when the plugin is activated everything look to be fine if your role is set as administrator but if you are login as regular member and try to see someone member pages your are getting a blank page. I had to deactivate the plugin. Any idea?

    Do you see the problem with the default theme activated (no child theme)?

    Before I release the next version I am going to do more testing on single WP myself. Up until this point I have been relying on feedback.

    @MrMaz It was with a child theme activated using the default BP theme. Look to be working fine if you use only the default BP theme. How far are you from 0.4? just curious.

    Probably still at least a week away from a 0.4 beta. If you want to download the development version and play with it most of the group integration is done. Please don’t post any feedback on this thread though, I don’t want any confusion between the versions.

    Hi @MrMaz,

    love the plugin, thanks.

    Where can I get the development version?

    The current 0.3.2 version uses:

    require_once 'single/forms/details.php'; in /themes/bp-links-default/create.php, so I need to copy this file to my custom theme folder, should it be locate_template( array( 'single/forms/details.php' ), true );

    to save adding the extra file in my custom template if I don’t need to make any theme changes to that file?

    OK, just found the trac version, same call to require_once 'single/forms/details.php';

    should it be

    locate_template( array( 'single/forms/details.php' ), true );?

    You are correct, that is a bug. Thanks for the report.

    You can change that manually, or check out the 0.3 branch, as I have just committed that fix…

    svn co http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/buddypress-links/branches/0.3

    Thanks!

    cool, thanks.

    Fantastic plugin, only needs 3 file additions to custom themes so?

    /bp-links-default/create.php
    /bp-links-default/index.php
    /bp-links-default/single/home.php

    Yes, if you create those files in your child theme, they should override the core templates that ship with with the plugin.

    LMK if you run into any problems, not many people seem to be customizing the templates yet.

    @MrMaz, I’m a big fan of Theme Hybrid so my customisations are only being done on Hybrid child themes.

    The only edits that I find need to be done are on the files that use

    <?php get_header() ?>
    <div id="content">
    <div class="padder">

    a grep & replace fixes any child theme issues & all seems to work as expected.

    Thankfully your plugin only uses those on the 3 files mentioned above so all is nice & easy & works as expected if the calls to template files use locate_template rather than require_once

    @MrMaz Does 0.4 will allow to integrate BP links within groups on single WordPress install?

    Can someone please clarify how to override the default style. I’ve tried to create a folder in my child theme with the name “bp-links-default”. Then I’ve copied the style.css from the original path. In the new style.css I modified some elements but the style remains unchanged. I tried to copy the full path “_inc/css/default.css” and placed it in under the “bp-links-default” folder in my child theme. I modified the default.css and uploaded everything but the original default.css still remains unchanged . What should I do?

    You only need to take those steps if you are trying to override the PHP templates. If you just want to override some styles, then you can do that in your child theme’s stylesheet.

    @MrMaz Oh, I didn’t even think about that. Thank you very much!

    Have issues such as this been caught and fixed for next release?

    ‘function bp_links_dtheme_creation_tabs() {

    global $bp;

    $href = sprintf( ‘%s/%s/create/’, $bp->root_domain, $bp->links->slug );

    ?>

    <li class=”current”<a href=”‘

    Missing short tag after class token

    And explicit ‘for’ attributes need to to have a matching ID on the input.
