    @coolhunt

    This is what I have so far

    
    function gawd_allowed_tags() {
    
            global $allowedtags; 
    	$allowedtags = array(
    		'a' => array(
    			'class' => array(),
    			'href'  => array(),
    			'rel'   => array(),
    			'title' => array(),
    		),
    		'abbr' => array(
    			'title' => array(),
    		),
    		'b' => array(),
    		'blockquote' => array(
    			'cite'  => array(),
    		),
    		'cite' => array(
    			'title' => array(),
    		),
    		'code' => array(),
    		'del' => array(
    			'datetime' => array(),
    			'title' => array(),
    		),
    		'dd' => array(),
    		'div' => array(
    			'class' => array(),
    			'title' => array(),
    			'style' => array(),
    		),
    		'dl' => array(),
    		'dt' => array(),
    		'em' => array(),
    		'h1' => array(),
    		'h2' => array(),
    		'h3' => array(),
    		'h4' => array(),
    		'h5' => array(),
    		'h6' => array(),
    		'i' => array(),
    		'img' => array(
    			'alt'    => array(),
    			'class'  => array(),
    			'height' => array(),
    			'src'    => array(),
    			'width'  => array(),
    		),
    		'li' => array(
    			'class' => array(),
    		),
    		'ol' => array(
    			'class' => array(),
    		),
    		'p' => array(
    			'class' => array(),
    		),

    		'span' => array(
    			'class' => array(),

    		),
    		'strike' => array(),
    		'strong' => array(),
    		'ul' => array(
    			'class' => array(),
    		),
    	);
    	
    	return allowedtags;
    }
    
    add_action('init', 'gawd_allowed_tags', 10);
    ?>

    Hmm maybe I should just allow specific tags?

    Though I really want easy styling in the profile fields to prettify it

    Hi @imath

    Im a big fan! specially your work on BOWE-CODES

    As for your suggestion as currently outlined on https://codex.buddypress.org/participate-and-contribute/ **IMHO –> I think is part of the problem..

    1) I think the way the documentation works is a little confusing and are often no longer relevant
    The documentation process of how its outlined, the submission process et al is not moving at the speed of the internet.. maybe a “stack exchange” style approach might work?

    2) Helping out in the forums seems ideal -but- I feel the forum mechanism is also a little outdated

    3) The nature of BP makes it a little hard to dial in how to respond to inquiries – simply because its not obvious to the hobbyist like myself to determine if its a template/theme issue, plugin issue or other various possible conflicts..

    Anyway.. Im suggesting that perhaps BP.org should be change the approach to the community.. idk maybe something like a how CUNY Commons approached it? idk.. it maybe helpful to have an FAQ thats crossed linked to a forum discussion — it might also be helpful to change -or- update how the forum is organized? *it might also be helpful to somehow incentivize for-paid organizations like @buddyboss & @buddydev (I think a paradign shift is needed)

    Theres a lot of great nuggets of information thats either SILO’d in private-for-paid-organizations, or buried somewhere in stackexchange, or somewhere in the internet (how do we herd-those-cats)

    Suggestion: What if BP allows private companies to ‘sponsor’ this forum and what the companies will provide is basic quick easy answers and BP in return can have a VERIFIED badge on their profile and that company a section on a forum that is something like “ASK Company XYZ”

    anyway.. idk.. I just feel that we’ve been doing the same thing for so many years and we arent getting any better at supporting the community

    cheers

    @boonebgorges I really appreciate you.. especially your work with CUNY Commons & PressForward
    and my post – by no means – is intended to provoke or diminish your work and contributions to the community at-large.

    I personally appreciate your work and always look forward to anything put out.

    Im not a programmer
    so .. can i at least clear out spam?
    or work on documentation or something?

    To Be Fair. (and Im not trying to be a jerk)

    *I* think that waving the “Its free” flag as a blanket defense is what BREAKS the goodwill on both side.. (of course no one should ever take each other for granted)

    But.. OPEN-SOURCE – FREE –IS—INDEED–an– Actual business model.

    Again not to be a jerk (but *ITS FREE* is not a shield) — again, lets face it.. WP makes money off there software.. the FREE part is a component that makes the system work.. (im not gonna bore you with the nuance – Hacknernews does a better job at it)

    Anyway.. I respect everyone that are in the BP team and all of the contributors — but i think we can do it better — I really dont want to see the promise of BP and its potential fizzle away..

    and in my opinion — waving the the *Its Free* banner when someone says something – is what breaks the “FOSS” ecosystem…

    -Frankly.. Although there are upcoming updates… the pattern of BP reminds me of other projects — maybe something like ‘O2’ – Breathe/p2?

    I guess — It still feels like BP is at its last leg… (?)

    @coolhunt

    Looking at https://buddypress.org/support/view/no-replies/

    – its startling to look at the raw amount of un-responded post.
    – over 200 post un-responded
    – over 200 posts thats at least 2+ weeks old.. some are MONTHS old..

    if you look at WP.org / plugins that are similar in live installs the response from the developer is far more active and helpful.

    @coolhunt

    Im sorry to say that despite of the “updates” — BP is an extreme bear to wrestle..

    1) SUPPORT of any sort seems to be very lacking
    2) The usability (ui/ux) is sketchy –> its one of the reasons BP adoption is klunky (it takes too much work)
    3) the “THEME” (look & feel) is awful
    4) Theres SPAM on the support forum
    5) Documentation is getting sketchier & sketchier
    6) Between Buddypress, The Built-in wordpress-user/author mechanism AND “wordpress.com user-system” –its just confusing
    7) The Buddypress plugin ecosystem is a big gamble (most dont work right)
    8) WP community ALWAYS preaches to have as little plugins as possible – but get getting buddypress to be usable takes at least a dozen

    ***SUPPORT OF ANY SORT IS LACKING*****

    @sbrajesh WHOA! Im a big fan!!! There is no site I launch that doesnt have at LEAST one of your plugins or buddydev!!!!! Im often troll your site sniffing around and mining for tidbits of very useful buddypress insight.

    @buddyboss I LOVE what you do! and i have one social and boss installed on some of my sites.. I’m considering trying the new platform – but I’m very hesitant for many reasons..

    Anyway keep doing what you are doing. You guys are doing great!!!!!

    Hey Guys…

    Im still having trouble with getting @mentions to work on post. I have reinstalled WP & BP and changed themes.. Still not working. Is there a ‘filter’ i can add manually to my functions.php to make this happen? @shanebp do you have any insight or a things I can try. 🙂 Any tips would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    @coolhunt

    @boonebgorges @r-a-y @hnla Do you guys have any suggestions… I have tried adding

    add_filter( 'bp_activity_do_mentions', '__return_false' );

    inside FUNCTIONS.php

    @coolhunt

    Though I wonder what the benefit of creating a new fork/platform over – separate paid-premium plug-ins and hyper tuned themes..

    Still I love buddyboss themes – but being locked in is a headache I would not ever try to think about..

    Frankly I’ve always been deeply frustrated with buddypress though..


    coolhunt

    @coolhunt

    I use buddyboss and I LOVE what they do…

    but.. im a little nervous .. with the change over.

    Its worth pointing out that there OUTSTANDING themes are still available for normal buddypress..

    @ukai-themes – That worked!!!!

    now im trying to get it to work on blog posts

    @coolhunt

    Heres an example

    https://hellofoodie.la/members/latimesfood/profile/

    (im using the legacy template)

    I would like the @usernames to be linked when mentioned in the “about” profile field

    whats your website?


    coolhunt

    @coolhunt

    Hi,

    You can check out https://www.buddyboss.com/themes/
    (not my site)


    coolhunt
    Participant

    @coolhunt

    Yeah.. WP/BP is a little weird like that.. i mean.. look at the twenty nineteen theme as a recent example..

    BUT im a fan of it regardless because it allows me to prototype really fast and understand what needs to happen next within a few hours.. anyway..

    you asked for an example/demo.. https://www.buddyboss.com/ is pretty good.


    coolhunt
    Participant

    @coolhunt

    yeah.. there is a way.. — but — its a long and tedious “surgery” (i would dare say it would take maybe 3 months to get it done)

    i use buddyboss and default twenty seventeen themes on my projects..

    @coolhunt

    Im an idiot.. i found it at / buddypress / bp-templates / bp-legacy / buddypress / activity / entry.php

    is there a way to do this in “BP-Custom”?


    coolhunt
    Participant

    @coolhunt

    Upgrading to php7 is on my to do list… but its a bit of a bear to wrestle with on my VPS with (mt).. so Im holding off on upgrading for a bit


    coolhunt
    Participant

    @coolhunt

    This worked!

    adding
    add_filter('bp_core_fetch_avatar_no_grav', '__return_true');

    this is what my bp-custom looks like now to make it work:

    define('BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT', 'profile' );
    
    define ( 'BP_AVATAR_THUMB_WIDTH', 125 );
    define ( 'BP_AVATAR_THUMB_HEIGHT', 125 );
    define ( 'BP_AVATAR_FULL_WIDTH', 150 );
    define ( 'BP_AVATAR_FULL_HEIGHT', 150 );
    
    add_filter('bp_core_fetch_avatar_no_grav', '__return_true');
    
    define ( 'BP_AVATAR_DEFAULT', 'https://veloXXXXXXXhive.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/VeloHive-Default-User-Avatar-150px-x-150px-17Teeth-EVO.png' );
    define ( 'BP_AVATAR_DEFAULT_THUMB', 'https://veloXXXXXXhive.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/VeloHive-Default-User-Avatar-125px-x-125px-17Teeth-EVO-THUMBNAIL.png' );

    Someone should probably update that codex doc

    Oooh… this was an easy way to get it to be “ROWS”

    td {
      display: table-row;
    }

    coolhunt
    Participant

    @coolhunt

    <table class="profile-fields">
    
    					<?php while ( bp_profile_fields() ) : bp_the_profile_field(); ?>
    
    						<?php if ( bp_field_has_data() ) : ?>
    
    							<tr<?php bp_field_css_class(); ?>>
    
    								<td class="label"><?php bp_the_profile_field_name(); ?></td>
    
    								<td class="data"><?php bp_the_profile_field_value(); ?></td>
    
    							</tr>
    

    I found this at bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/members/single/profile/profile-loop.php

    I have no idea about HTML.. any tips?
