Theme and plugin requests

  • Hi Guys,

    Great to meet y’all over here – I’m James from Incsub / WPMU DEV / Edublogs etc.

    We’re thinking it’s time to start getting seriously into BP, but we’d like to get a feel for what people are really after, so we’re asking for theme & plugin requests so that we can develop them for you :)

    http://wpmu.org/buddypress-themes-and-plugins/

    We’ll release some for free on http://wpmudev.org and some on the premium site – and we’d love to hear what you’d like us to make you!

    It’s a bit of an experiment (usually we try to pick up what people want from general forum posts, email requests etc.) but if it works out we’ll definitely do it again. So would love to hear your thoughts on the concept too.

    Cheers, James

    By far my number one plugin would be extending the multi-db to work with buddypress adding in replication as stated earlier. I believe Nicola may be working on this already though.

    @anointed, we’re looking at that at the moment too.

    We’re also looking at a thorough reworking of it (keeping compatibility of course) and it’d be good to include that in it.

    Unfortunately that’s one where copyright does matter though as it’s a premium.wpmudev.org plugin – so Nicola can certainly modify it for his own personal use but we’d have to take issue with any redistribution.

    Besides, it’s pretty complex (and mission critical) stuff so we like to make absolutely sure we’ve got it sorted and supported – I’d *strongly* advise against using any forked versions or stuff which might risk future compatibility.

    Farms, I was serious when I invited you guys to do some heavy lifting. From my earlier post in this thread:

    Developing new member themes seem to be the challenging area that needs attention. Since the gurus are asking, I suggest you folks do some heavy lifting in that area.

    What I meant by ‘heavy lifting’ was to develop themes and plugins that include new and exiting concepts. Things that can be used as models. Products that can be copied and extended to improve the community we all operate in. Themes and plugins that other developers find valuable.

    ‘Value’ to me is code I can learn from, use, include, modify and reuse without restriction. I know that Incsub’s products, services and success are based on code that was freely shared without restriction.

    Have you forgotten where you came from?

    “Have you forgotten where you came from?” Come along now, you’re supposed to be a moderator not a troll! Next thing we know we’ll be calling each other nazis ;)

    Can we save this thread for discussions about what we can do for the community rather than yawnsville debates over licensing. Please.

    I’m not trolling Farms.

    I just wanted to know if I’m gonna be able to actually use any of the ideas you get from this thread. If they surface in an Insub product and you use the same restrictive licensing that is attached to the TOS plugin, I won’t be able to.

    Licensing is important to me. I got my answer. You can have your thread back.

    I want this done,Kaltura to port over to BP : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-video-pack/

    Would be a good answer to server loads because users can upload videos to 3rd party host and not yours that would save you server performance and storage issues!

    I’d like to see:

    1. better taxonomy with separate vocabularies (think Drupal). For example if there’s a profile field called “home town” and the user enters New York, NY, that would link to a list of other people who’s hometown is New York, NY (instead of doing a sitewide search for everything containing “New York”)

    2. some type of user role system with different permissions for each role, and different profile fields per role (business, typical user, whatever)

    3. ability to comment on Activity posts (like Facebook, though I assume this is already in the pipeline)

    4. total integration with Picassa and Flickr ( check out what this guy’s been doing with the 6.x version of this: http://drupal.org/project/picasa . It’s the best sort of photo management for a CMS I’ve come across )

    Free licensing is kind of crucial I’d say. Why not use GPL, like BuddyPress does?
