Facebook Cover image, Theming tutorials and the future of BP.
I’m working on a custom theme for Buddpress that I would like to extend with a few small features. But my initial excitement quickly toned down after stumbling in the dark with BP for a few weeks. So I decided to put my nose to the grindstone and study up wordpress theming – reasonably sensible since the basic implementation is reasonably similar, right? Hell I didn’t even know how to work with functions or what a loop is!
Anywayz, I haven’t touch BP theming yet but I have some ideas in the back of my mind that I would like to realize. But first some general questions:
1) This one should probably be available as a plug-in. I need a way to let users be able to upload a custom header-like image, like Facebook’s “cover image”.
2) Before I get going with BP’s theming are there any recommended tutorials for beginner BP themers? I’ve found a lot of good stuff for WP but BP seems to be a bit lacking. In-depth stuff would also be welcomed
3) How active is BP still? I’ve heard some rumors that it’s taken a bit of a nose-dive. I still see some regular updates so I guess BP is still here for a long time? Whatever the situation, I still believe I made the right choice with BP!
I have a number of other questions but these are for starts.
Thanks for your time!
