New Sliding AJAX Login Panel Plugin for BuddyPress

    @pollyplummer

    Hey guys, new fun plugin available for BuddyPress: http://wpmu.org/new-sliding-ajax-login-panel-plugin-for-buddypress/ I have no idea when the repo will approve it, so I thought I’d mention it here in case anyone is looking for something like this. There are lots of tutorials for making sliding login panels, but some can be complicated to implement. This plugin makes it really easy. Customize it with your logo and your site’s colors. I hope to add in an options menu to make this even easier, but I don’t have the time to figure it out right now. It’s on the list for later. Please let me know if you find any bugs or issues and maybe I can fix it up even more before it hits the WP repo. Thanks!

    Sarah Works fine. I changed the code for show site blogs, own blogs and create blogs too. I think that is very important thing in buddypress sites.
    Thanks Sarah and sorry for my bad english

    Hey no problem. I specifically left out blogs and forum type links because not every site has those enabled for users. Glad you found it easy to customize. Thanks for giving it a try! :)

    Excellent idea, unfortunately, I can’t make it work.
    Using WPMU 2.9.2, BP 1.2.3 and malleable for BP 0.0.7 Hybrid child theme.

    Menu expands but nothing is shown, all black in my case.
    In default BP theme, works OK but is shown not on top of the page but just below the tabs.

    Where should I start troubleshooting ? Regards,

    I’ve followed the instructions on activating the plugin but when activated nothing is displayed and I get a blank page

    Edit: Fixed

    I’m testing it on a client site you, can demo @ http://www.warlab.com ( turn down you speakers to avoid the annoying music)
    @Sarah Gooding for some reason it creates two instances of the plugin in wp admin

    Thank you. Yes – turning off the speakers was a good idea ;)

    @jeremy The client actually requested to put it back because they liked the push like notifications and some of the other features but after thinking about it and seeing @leguis reply I may try to add those.

    Tremendous thanks @Sara ! this really gives users a concise and intuitive view of what they’re able to do with the features BP provides.

    Is there anyway to have the slider always appear on one position either left or right no matter what screen resolution you are running?

    Thanks everyone for testing it! If you’re having strange issues with your theme, then it’s probably something to do with your theme. I have made sure that it works with the default theme, but beyond that you may need to make some tweaks for your particular situation. I’ve also updated the plugin in recent days to display better quality avatars, as well as not to require any additions to your template in the install instructions, and a couple other minor things. I’m still waiting on the WordPress repo to give me approval for adding it over there. Once I get that, I’ll drop a note here so you can update to the latest version.

    The plugin has been added to the WP repository. You can find it here with a few updates: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-sliding-login-panel/

    Hi,

    I’ve noticed, while trying to remove various basic functions of buddypress, that disabling “Friends” module of Buddypress cause the plugin to crash with this error message:
    Fatal error : Call to undefined function bp_get_friendship_requests() in /MY_INSTALLPATH/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-sliding-login-panel/update-content.php on line 110

    I’ve fixed it with adding bp_is_active( ‘friends’ ) to the condition on line 110
    ->
    if ( bp_is_active( ‘friends’ ) && bp_has_members( ‘include=’ . bp_get_friendship_requests() . ‘&per_page=1′ ) ) :

    @satanas147 Thanks for that. I did not think about people who don’t have Friends enabled. I will add that to the next version.

    Sarah, this is a fabulous plugin and it look so very nice. I look forward to the next update of this. Wonder why this isn’t in the Buddypress extend section? You will get better feedback and more people will try it if it is in there….

    @pollyplummer Hi ! This looks great but unfortunately I’m not able to use it on my site. If the Friends component is disabled, the plugin will exit with errors of calling unregistered functions (which is logic). I tried to add some validations myself:“ but the site didn’t load, only the background. Could you take a look at this ?

    Thanks !
