Will you develop one of these buddypress.org enhancements?
The buddypress.org bug and enhancement list at http://123.writeboard.com/7555930eb348e12b5 (password cake; scroll down to the middle of the page to see the list) has undergone some very helpful reorganization and refinement over the last week or two. Now it’s time to start tackling the list.
I’m working closely with Andy to figure out the exact logistical details of applying fixes. The short story is this: I will be merging fixes into the buddypress.org codebase, and Andy will be reviewing and deploying it. Andy and I are hoping that a workflow will be in place in a matter of days.
There are certain items on the bug list that are specific to the environment in which buddypress.org is hosted. I will be primarily responsible for these fixes.
However, many items can be developed independently of the buddypress.org theme and hosting environment. Below, I have listed a number of those items that can be developed independently. If you are a BP developer and would like to volunteer to code one of these enhancements, please state your interest below. I’ll edit the list to reflect people’s preferences.
Support for `backticked` code in forums
- 2) “
Topics started/replied to” page, in the vein of the old buddypress.org design – halfway done (thanks @r-a-y)
- 3) Moving threads from one group to another – (should be doable with this but needs to be modified to move activity items too)
- 4) Quote filter/button for forums
- 5) “support” topic, for marking threads as Resolved/Unresolved/Not a support topic. I think this bbPress plugin does it: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bb-topic-icons/#post-5080
6) link directly to most recent reply on a topic thread– done (thanks @nuprn1)
Ideally, these enhancements should be written in a modular way. Use BP hooks, so that your code can run from a plugin or from a functions.php file. (Bonus: that way you can put your code in the WP plugin repo!)
For those who love BuddyPress and can code a bit, this is a great and easy way to help out the community! Think of it as a mini 3.org project
