    @chiinook

    thanks … I’ll see where I can take it from here

    @chiinook

    Thanks for the response. That’s basically what I have set up, yeah.

    Sorry for taking up this up in the wrong place. Any suggestions where I should turn?

    Nope .. that was an attempt to see if there was something in that call that was changing things. Just forgot to uncomment when I pasted over. Any ideas?

    Hmm, not quite what I’m getting at mercime. The ability to review groups – or to add functionality of any kind to existing groups – is already covered.

    What I need is the ability to duplicate group functionality in entirely separate components, each with their own directory. For example:

    Three separate but functionally identical “group-like” modules …
    root/organizatations
    root/departments
    root/groups

    What is the status with the radio button issue that was re-opened? Is the delay somehow tied to this unresolved issue? If so, that would be an explanation of sorts. But with the appearance of Jeff’s privacy plugin tied to 1.2.7, it really makes this look like a point release rather than a set of bug fixes and small improvements. That’s not something in the core dev team controls but, “whoop, there it is.” In terms of the level of expectation (and thus, potential disappointment) the stakes seem a bit higher than normal. Am I exaggerating? While the delay on 1.2.7 is not really going to kill anyone – whatever the reason may be – the longer it takes, especially without explanation, the more damage might be sustained in regards to public opinion.

    Hey Boris … is it possible to display both profiles and groups on the same map but with distinct pins, on the front page for example?

    Aha … my bad. One more lesson in paying attention. Thank you very much for your help!

    Thanks so much for the reply Roger.

    I have tried all those, but realized I missed one other possibility: bp-custom. Sure enought, that seems to be the source, though I’m not sure why. Strangely enough, of the various hacks that I have there, the problem seems to be in the standard “define” functions prescribed in the bp codex pages.

    `define( ‘BP_ACTIVATION_SLUG’, ‘activate’ );
    define( ‘BP_ACTIVITY_SLUG’, ‘activity’ );
    define( ‘BP_BLOGS_SLUG’, ‘blogs’ );
    define( ‘BP_FORUMS_SLUG’, ‘forums’ );
    define( ‘BP_FRIENDS_SLUG’, ‘friends’ );
    define( ‘BP_GROUPS_SLUG’, ‘groups’ );
    define( ‘BP_MEMBERS_SLUG’, ‘directory’ );
    define( ‘BP_MESSAGES_SLUG’, ‘messages’ );
    define( ‘BP_REGISTER_SLUG’, ‘register’ );
    define( ‘BP_SEARCH_SLUG’, ‘search’ );
    define( ‘BP_SETTINGS_SLUG’, ‘settings’ );
    define( ‘BP_XPROFILE_SLUG’, ‘profile’ );

    define(‘BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT’,’updates’);`

    Any idea why one of these would be throwing the system?

    Any chance this is an .htaccess issue?

    Hey, can some one grab this one for me? This really is a significant hassle as our sight is just getting implemented and this will be a real frustration to my natient community. If it’s a dumb mistake on my part, please tell me in no uncertain terms! But I don’t think it is and need some help getting it sorted! Thanks.

    OK, I’m stumped … and I haven’t been able to find anything that matches my issue in the forums. To help diagnose a bit, I took down all plugins I’ve recently updated or added … no effect. Since I recently upgraded to 1.2.6 I made sure that my theme was all patched up … still no effect. The only thing I can think of that may have triggered this was that I attempted to install gpress, ran into errors and uninstalled. Could gpress have screwed with the profile addresses?

    @chiinook

    There sure ought to be. It’d be a great feature for both user update streams and groups. Maybe using the “float to the top” method that has been used to re-highlight commented on activity items

    @dwenaus If you are serious about pursuing this project, please let me know. This would be a great help in the development of a project I am working on and I would happily contribute some seed money – probably 50 dollars. In fact, if you’re committed to going for it, send me your PayPal info and I’ll contribute right away. From my pov it’s well worth the investment.

    You once mentioned having a proprietary solution for user lists using xprofile fields.

    In redesigning my organization’s website I need to 1. display certain users (organization members in various departments) in a directory and 2. limit certain kinds of content creation to these lists (group creation only for organization members). We still want the site open to the public and use it to recruit new staff so I can’t just close down registration. Also, I can’t use wp roles because write permissions don’t line up with our organizational groupings (eg, some organization directors will be contributors while others are editors).

    I’d be interested to know what you’ve come up with and would be willing to purchase it if it meets our needs and fits our budget.

    Thanks fellas … I’ll see what I can put together.

    Looking forward to it Travel-Junkie … maybe even more than bp1.3 :)

    Also just checked on the buddypress registration page and – since this is a replacement for the wp registration page – there’s no sign of the ST/FC account link buttons.

    ST/FC seems like such a complete system, some one ought to see if they can get it to port over to buddypress use. That’d be a pretty sweet setup.

    @chiinook

    Well, I think I got the locations figured out … buttons are showing up on the General Settings section of the profile. Here’s what I did:

    For Facebook
    `add_action(‘bp_template_content’,’sfc_login_profile_page’,50); //Simple Facebook Connect account link function`

    For Twitter
    `add_action(‘bp_template_content’,’stc_login_profile_page’,51); //Simple Twitter Connect account link function`

    I’d have to work with style a bit but, hey, they’re where they ought to be! That’s not the end of the story though. On the wordpress profile, you’ll see options to disconnect from the remote account (Facebook or Twitter) but these options don’t show up on the bp profile.

    Seems like running both the Twitter and Facebook connect simultaneously gets a bit buggy. If linked to twitter for example, the facebook link button won’t click through.

    Also, after linking accounts you have to sign out of buddypress multiple times (if you initially signed in with your buddypress login, then again with eg. your facebook account).

    All this is making me think twice about putting SFC and STC to use in my system even though it looks like a sweet and full featured integration. I’m sure some one with a little more skill could make it work. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

    @chiinook

    Hey Gents … picking up on the question posed by @blgdra here, is there a conditional statement I can use to show the field only when it is populated, or even only when populated with a given value?

    I have
    `Field Title: `
    and would like to hide the Field title as well as the value when there is no value.

    Same here. I’ve disabled all plugins that could possibly be messing with these processes. Not a clue.

    @chiinook

    I am also quite interested in the development of this plugin and can offer 20$ in support. Seems to me that this is really a standard, “gotta-be-there” feature for any kind of group system, especially (as some have already pointed out) for collaboration. So I say go for it. I’m absolutely sure it will catch on and all the more if you are using the new bp custom posts framework.

    In addition to ideas already listed above, I would add the following to a wish list:
    * the ability to place links to group pages in the new custom navigation system
    * a solid admin system for an overview of all pages according to their group associations

    http://keyboarddance.wordpress.com/2007/09/28/dynamic-subdomains-using-htaccess/ suggests the following .htaccess addition in the (given that wildcard DNS is enabled):

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.yourwebsite.com
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ([^.]+).yourwebsite.com
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /path_to_your_site/httpdocs/work_out.php?url=%1

    Is that all it takes?
