BP Courseware is no longer working on BuddyPress. Only older versions of BP will be able to run Courseware. Contacted the developer but he’s not sure if or when this plugin will be updated.
Well, this particular coder is a senior developer at one of the largest online casino companies and has to meet his own deadlines all the time, so I guess he will not be the one helping out. But I’ll make sure to send in a ticket and maybe even let someone do the work through a freelance job.
Sure I will update the community if any fruitful outcome is reached.
Am not a complainer by occupation, and I don’t sit around at forums all day nagging on everything and anything but in this matter I just had to raise my voice a bit because time and time again I see other people getting down to a dead end when talking about this in WP’s support forums.
Using Networks for WordPress, does the same I believe yet for free. This still doesn’t provide a good solution since Buddypress users and Groups are not shared between network, yet are shared between sites inside the same network. And really, if I have 42 sites, I’m not going to create 31 seperate networks with the majority only consisting of one site just to have BP groups and users seperated. There are much better and easier option, as I provided in my initial post.
As I have been told, a well oiled coder can make this in a week or less, so my question remains, why hasn’t anyone done this already?
Sure, I agree with you on some of the points you make, and yes I also understand very well that most contributors do it without earning a penny from it while doing it in their free time. That is very applaudable. But there’s fact remaining that when you search Google for forum threads regarding this exact (and directly related) issue(s) you will find a whole bunch of people who are stuck with the same thing. While (on WP and BP forums not any of the BP team members seems to take it serious or even explains why it is not being worked on at this moment. In this case, as for the few dozens of discussions I’ve read, not one good answer from any of the BP team members has been given. And that is very sad!
I personally believe that such a feature would be something that can be expected as being quite essential for a product as BuddyPress. Especially since so many people using BP also run a WP network or even WP Multi Networks.
And again, if BuddyPress would have a premium version which would have this feature, or even a seperate single site BP and paid network BP, well I wouldn’t mind to pay $50 for it. As long as the product does what it says. And at present, in a few instances, that is still not the case.
Posting a plugin job offers doesn’t help all those other thousands of people coping with the same problem… I’m not abusing anyone, just telling the truth. BuddyPress may be open source but does that mean that the team working on it should just ignore all the signals and complaints? This is a very well known issue, not for the past month but for many month already. So yes, I blame the BuddyPress team for being lazy and not doing anything about it, after all it’s “their” product.
If I give you a free cheese and after eating it you find out it’s rotten…can I say “don’t complain, it’s free”???
Hope someone gets some working spirit over there, or quit. Just provide a GOOD product or NONE AT ALL!
Having same issue. Moreover I’m running multisite in which all 5 sites have all the same plugins activated + all use the same theme. Yet, on some sites cropping works and on half of them not. All sites have exactly same setup, same settings, same extensions and same functions. Nothing modified. Along with the crop function, the buddypress register function also fails on those site where cropping fails.
Theme issue? Don’t think so.
Other plugin issues, nope.
PS, on the sites that DO have a functioning cropping, when first time clicked on any area within the cropping module, the page jumps and users have to scroll up again.
WP 3.6.1 mlti network, latest buddypress, bbpress latest, cubepoints, set permalinks on %post-name%. Activated and deactivated rtMedia (which sucks for me since it conflicts with build-in media upload) but also gives same results.
