Problem with THIS site?? (buddypress.org)

  • Is it me.. or is there no way to see my posts or follow ups on this site??
    There’s no links on my stats which tell me I have “0 followers, 5 updates, 8 forum posts” and my activity feed says ‘no activity’..

    Would it be a good idea to have a page that listed my 8post topics so i can then click to view them?

    thanks

  • My Forums Tab is also empty. Surely any forum I have posted in should be listed?

    I didn’t want to ask the obvious question.. but here goes.
    - Where should I be looking to find my previous forum posts? (without going page to page in the forum, looking for my name) – Theres nothing I can find in my profile that link to my posts.. help?

    Ill bookmark this page

    @schteev this site is still in transition, sorry for the inconvenience.

    Posts in BuddyPress.org are indexed very well by Google. So in the meantime, you could Google “buddypress.org schteev keyword/s-of-your-topic.” Thank you for your patience.

    Would it be possible to have an update on the transition of this website? I have seen a few mentions that there is a redesign going on, but no details. Is there an end in sight for the next version? Also, would it be possible to share some of the enhancements to expect? Thanks.

    As far as I know, changes are being done in the backend of BuddyPress.org. No timeline for completion, as people responsible are working hard on BuddyPress plugin bug fixes and compatibility with next version of bbPress and with upcoming WP 3.3 which is top priority. Thank you for your patience.

    I realize that we are depending on the kindness of strangers, but regular updates and some idea of timelines would be helpful.

    It seems like there is a bit of a vicious circle. The forum we use to ask questions about buddypress and report problems gives a poor impression of buddypress (despite the clear hard work of volunteers) and makes it hard to find and track answers. I guess the answer, for those who can wait, is to wait until more plugins and and the forum are fixed?

    For those who are new and want to use plugins, and those who use plugins and haven’t upgraded yet perhaps it is unwise to install 1.5 until there is more progress?

    @jsibley I understand your concern.

    For those who are new: whether to install BP 1.5 or not – I recommend installing this version rather than older version. BP 1.5 is a major update with a lot of bug fixes and new features. There was a list compiled by volunteers around the time BP 1.5 was launched http://codex.buddypress.org/releases/1-5-plugin-compatibility/ The list needs to be updated but clicking on most the links of the specific plugins will bring you to the plugin pages where you can see if these have been updated to latest WP/BP versions.

    For those with older BP installs: whether or not to upgrade to BP 1.5.
    This is a similar question that many Site/Super Admins have asked themselves or regular/multisite WP installs. Should they upgrade to the latest version of WordPress or not because they are dependent on WP plugins which have not been upgraded? Sometimes the Admins wait for the plugin to be upgraded before upgrading to latest WP version if they are assured such plugin will be upgraded. More often, Admins upgrade to latest WP version and find alternative plugin and/or sometimes paying for a premium plugin and/or updating the plugin themselves. Those are the realities in open-source software.

    Thanks for your response @mercime.

    I am still confused about how to tell from a plugin’s page whether it is really compatible with 1.5. Looking at one plugin at random at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-group-management/ that supposedly passed, it’s page says compatible up to Buddypress 1.2.8. Does one believe the “passed” or the 1.2.8. If it’s only good up to 1.2.8, is there any way to tell how actively it is maintained and when it might be updated (other than noticing who the author is, perhaps)?

    A number of the plugins showing “failed” show a date of August, 2011. Is there a planned update to the status of these plugins?

    It also seems that only some plugin developers specify a Buddypress compatibility version at all, which seems problematic.

    I think we are drifting away from the topic title, but this website would ideally make it easier for users to know the status of 1.5 and its plugins, rather than having to gather incomplete information from multiple sites.
