Congrats! I have composed a ditty in honor of the occasion: http://wpmu.org/musings-on-the-birth-of-buddypress/
By the way, if you\\\’re a premium member we\\\’ve released our Communities plugin, including wiki functionality, here: http://wpmu.org/an-alternative-to-buddypress-three-new-wordpress-mu-plugins-communities-messaging-and-friends/
I think you’ll find that http://yaksocial.com/blog/2009/03/24/yak-social/ is like that because that’s the title of teh post there
“Have you forgotten where you came from?” Come along now, you’re supposed to be a moderator not a troll! Next thing we know we’ll be calling each other nazis
Can we save this thread for discussions about what we can do for the community rather than yawnsville debates over licensing. Please.
@anointed, we’re looking at that at the moment too.
We’re also looking at a thorough reworking of it (keeping compatibility of course) and it’d be good to include that in it.
Unfortunately that’s one where copyright does matter though as it’s a premium.wpmudev.org plugin – so Nicola can certainly modify it for his own personal use but we’d have to take issue with any redistribution.
Besides, it’s pretty complex (and mission critical) stuff so we like to make absolutely sure we’ve got it sorted and supported – I’d *strongly* advise against using any forked versions or stuff which might risk future compatibility.
It’s a pleasure Glad you liked it
Feel free to modify, redistribute or do whatever you like with it.
Alternatively, don’t – it’s entirely up to you.
We’ve made some serious notes and are starting work on some of the larger ones, but here’s one to get you started – a nice, simple, configurable Terms of Service plugin freely available at our BuddyPress Plugins page over at WPMU DEV:
Enjoy – and you can also add your own BP plugins there to share with the community should you wish!
Ahhhh… the wpmu + buddypress + integrated wiki platform question. Something we’ve actually spent quite a lot of time thinking about ourselves!
– First up, unfortunately there’s nothing out there
– Secondly, a third party approach is definitely a decent idea as good wikis are hard to build!
– But finally, that’s not as easy as it might at first appear – and you might end up wanting to simplify things a little and build a native plugin (which is what we’ve been toying with for sometime).
You can actually see an example of a very basic (internal) wiki setup over at our Edublogs Campus sandpit site: http://universityofblogs.com
U: admin P: pass (gets wiped every hour)
First up there’s our (pree BP communities: http://universityofblogs.com/wp-admin/communities.php
And as you can see each community gets its own uber simple wiki, for example: http://universityofblogs.com/wp-admin/communities.php?action=wiki&cid=1
Am not pitching http://edublogs.org/campus/ (well, ok, I am a bit but rather I think it’s an example of what you can get done in a fairly simple way.
Of course though – having an extra ‘communities’ tab is kinda counter-BP-stylee… so you can make your mind up on that too, I’m sure most of the regulars around here would definitely see mucho lacking in our setup as opposed to BP (as do we!)
Hope that helps.
Not as much as we appreciate you being a premium supporter
We’re releasing a new sitewide privacy plugin later this week – with luck that should help out in the meantime, keep an eye on http://wpmu.org for the announcement.
Oh, timeframes too… I’d definitely hope within the next couple of months but could be sooner or later too. Either way, we’re fans of getting stuff out there pretty fast.
Nice, integration of Upgrades (and also Supporter – have you seen it, it’s even better: http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/supporter ) is the kinda thang we’re all about
Photo/media stuff is definitely interesting – and we’re keen to look at it, although having already developed inboxes / friends listings / communities etc. for WPMU to see them all surpassed by BP makes me a little tentative to develop something that Automa*tic are going to do (possibly, ahem, better) shortly
Thnaks again for the feedback guys!
Sweet, also much appreciated – just the kind of direction we need.
