Plugin Idea: BP Group Pages – please give feedback and support
I had an idea for a plugin that I think would greatly benefit the BuddyPress community, especially for those using BuddyPress for it’s group features. The idea is to develop a plugin called BuddyPress Group Pages – which would give each group it’s own pages component where group members can create and edit pages.
The functionality would be very similar to the BP Wiki plugin (which I helped a bit on), but this new plugin would be rock solid. Why not just work to fix the BP Wiki plugin, well it’s foundation is not good, and it has had data loss errors for many months now – not a good sign. The foundation of this new plugin would be based on WP custom post types – and thankfully @jjj and @kunalb have just introduced a new plugin to implement that in BuddyPress called BuddyPress Custom Posts (http://buddypress.org/community/groups/buddypress-custom-posts/). While heavy on the MVC, it looks pretty good
The new BuddyPress Group Pages plugin would be built rock solid. It would be simple to start but highly extensible. I believe it would address the need for groups to collaborate in the way that they use Google Docs to collaborate.
Do people see a need for this plugin? and if so are any willing to become sponsors for this plugin? If yes, then I’ll list them in the plugin for as long as it shall live.
I’m interested to get some community feedback on this.
