Immediately available is BP Rewrites 1.4.0. This maintenance release fixes two bugs. For details on the changes, please read the 1.4.0 release notes.

Update to BP Rewrites 1.4.0 today in your WordPress Dashboard, or by downloading from the plugin repository.

Oh wait, what is the goal of this BuddyPress Add-on?

If you’re wondering, with BP Rewrites activated, you’ll get full control on any BuddyPress URLs! BuddyPress plugin developers are strongly encouraged to test it with their plugins and report potential issue on the BP Rewrites’ support page. The goal of this BuddyPress Add-on is to make sure we can safely merge it in BuddyPress Core to migrate our Legacy URL parser to the WordPress Rewrites API. Thanks in advance to all plugin developers or BP Rewrites pioneers for their contributions: once BuddyPress will have performed this migration, life will be easier for everyone:

  • Your community site users will be able to enjoy more meaningful URLs,
  • BuddyPress Theme authors will stop having headaches trying to understand bp_core_set_uri_globals()
  • BuddyPress will be compatible with plain permalinks.
  • BuddyPress will improve its compliance with WordPress Standards.

Let’s all help this happen asap, you just need to test it and report bugs!

Many thanks to the one and only 1.4.0 contributor
