I’m working on something very similar to the scenario you just described. Here is an idea it might work for you:
You could add/associate the contractors/user IDs with the WooCommerce cart. It would allow severals contractors to be associated with the same WooCommerce order/cart.
Here is a possible workable model.
– Add a project as a product;
– Add BuddyPress profile users IDs to the product in the cart;
– With the user IDs, you would fetch the users information to show their details;
– Go to the cart/checkout process as normally you would;
– Hook in WooCommerce to send the order but not charge it yet;
– Send the job to the contractor/user;
– Contractor accepts the job, hook in your payment gateway to perform the charge;
– Contractor performs the job as suggested/described by you;
– After job delivered by the contractor and accepted by the customer.
A friend suggested I should consider using WooCommerce Pre-Orders.
I’d say the answer to this question lies in the LMS plugins out there… Each one has its own approach to integrate BuddyPress with them.
Also you will be able to get a look at how the pieces integrate together.
I understand, but like I said, your requirements are very specific for your network. Good luck! =)
Those are very specific changes. I hardly think there is a plugin out of the box, able to apply these changes, but they are possible.
I find it safe enough.
@jgwolfensberger I disagree, best practice would be testing on a stage/dev site first and then, upgrade your installation when no problem are found.
Consider for example custom plugins and functions you have in your theme/WP installation, there are not the same as the many other websites with BP out there in the web.
Or was using its own form version and was with bad programming?
@danbp I’m sorry, I think he expects only one URL.
I’ve never used Commons In a Box, so I couldn’t say what kind of theme compatibility is necessary to work with it.
I do think you’re using two plugins that perform the same thing, as far as I know about it, CIAB does what BuddyPress does, am I wrong?
Also, check if there has to be some sort of organization in the template structure for it to work. That must likely be the problem in your case.
Here are some suggestions and ideas:
1. and 2. Here you would configure a bit to make the roles do whatever you want when you want it.
3. It is possible to remove it and activate only the messaging component.
4. Today this is easy with the Theme Compatibility and Template Files (https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/theme-compatibility-1-7/a-quick-look-at-1-7-theme-compatibility/)
Sorry, I misunderstood. I’m not sure if the above example would work in a plugin directory.
Try not to repeat all the file path. Just putting:
I personally doesn’t create like that. I bring the files to my themes folder and edit them. This is better for upgrades and I won’t need to create pages.
Example: If I want to have a custom Profile page, I would do the following steps:
1 – Create a folder in my theme called, BuddyPress (wp-content/themes/my-theme/buddypress).
2 – I would copy the profile file from the bp-legacy template in the BP plugin folder and would put in this BuddyPress folder in my template.
3 – Edit the way I liked.
It depends much of what you are trying to do, but this approach solved my problems in a more secure and future-friendly way.
I personally could not say, because you’re showing one random example. In my opinion, and experience with a project that I’m working on, the Codex has been very helpful and with good and solid information. Probably you’re doing something wrong, neither you could say that everything is wrong, just because you’re not being able to accomplish one particular task.
@henrywright One question as this topic interests me a lot.
To make it work, I should replace the html form tags in the bp-legacy/members/single/messages/compose.php with this function or am I missing something here?
If possible, could you put an example, with code?
Thanks in advance!
Also try to use in a test website before putting in your life one, in case something go wrong, as it just did.
I’m sure you can de-register the script and put your own autocomplete script.
I didn’t know there was a limit in the bulk delete. Is it right to have such a limit @henrywright?
I agree. I just think you will see an increase in spam registrations.
Hi @janiceandcompany, put your question also in the bbPress support forum. I think it’s more likely to find a person with the same problem, and solution, there rather than here.
I tried changing here the forum status and it did stop showing to the general users. Are you logged in as an administrator? Or are you seeing this as a general user?
I would totally not recommend to disable it. You should spend more time to figure the problem out. In my BuddyPress test installations (local and live), it sends the emails just fine, so there is a problem, maybe in your server, template, I don’t know, somewhere.
But, if you really wanna disable this, after a quick search here and in Google, I found some possible solutions.
Obs.: I haven’t tested it, so use it at your own risk.
I’m also a little confused in what you’re trying to achieve. Would it be a history, like in notifications, but for the activities?
@cdb3212 As embarrassing as this might sound, I don’t know how Child Themes works exactly, but it seems there is a problem where you are putting it.
Try using @barney92 suggestion, putting it in your functions.php file within your theme and see the result.
