Thanks @danbp for the link.
I’ll be sure to prep with the guidelines depending on where this goes.
Themes are such a hard sell. Probably will just submit it to Theme Forest.
Yeah .org aint doing it for me in terms of BuddyPress themes. Be a good thing for buddypress.org to have though.
Was sorta hoping to make some coin with this theme. wp.org wont do that for me.
For a BuddyPress theme, what’s the requirements to get on wp.org?
I’m wondering if it’s still worth building this theme.
It’s performant and has support for all of the members component and activity components features right now.
Anyone here see people using this theme for personal sites etc?
That’s a really cool theme you implemented.
The left bar is also a menu in my theme, it doesn’t have anything in it now though.
Theres a plugin which does what you mention. BuddyPress Activity Plus you can find it from the plugins page in your WordPress admin area.
I’m also publishing a video series to the site right now about WordPress theme development.
Hope get some people to signup and join in, share their own tips and tricks.
Yeah I think so, I’ve only ever created on theme using rems and the visual gains were pretty obvious.
I don’t have much reason to use SVG on this theme right now, but maybe in the future in custom templates.
Thanks for the constructive feedback, I will certainly look at increasing the font-size. I’m using px units for measurement right now and would be good to get over to rems.
So far the members and activity components are pretty much ready for a 1.0 release but would like to get groups and sites in their also, and decide on which plugins to ship with it.
Also, could you be a bit more specific. Which particular text do you propose is increased?
@danbp yeah I have it setup for both groups and stand-alone.
The bp_is_user_forums, no matter what I try returns false and never matches. The plugin template is then used to render the templates BBPress uses.
I’ll try a fresh install at some point, there’s always something new to deal with.
members/single/index.php does exist, I created it. It also takes as a valid template. If you use home.php erroneous p tags are placed throughout the page.
bp_is_user_forums() doesn’t seem to work.
I think the template names were all changed, https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/theme-compatibility-1-7/template-hierarchy/#single-member-pages
/members/member/forums/ doesn’t list anything, returns nothing.
/members/member/forums/replies – lists the topics, although they aren’t replies they are topics started.
Thanks for reply.
@danbp Thanks for reply.
Inside of members/single/index.php
There’s some logic to serve the correct template.
I notice at the line
This never actually runs… It’s not until the “// if nothing else sticks” fail safe the logic matches and the plugins template is loaded.
So two problems… How can I serve my own template, and inside that template how do I query a members topics?
Basically I’m working with the legacy templates which ship with the plugin to get started with this theme.
Also, sidenote… BuddyPress seems to inject weird paragraph tags throughout the inner templates if you don’t have the correct template names in your-theme/buddypress
Only seems to happen when a buddypress folder exists inside the theme.
I figured it out WITHOUT looking at buddypress.js (go me).
You need a container with an ID of BuddyPress for the data to be appended to. (heads to check buddypress.js)… Yes, yes it’s true.
@henrywright the post on .org got closed, they say it’s too work like…
It was actually the nicest thread closure I’ve ever seen https://wordpress.org/support/topic/lets-work-together?replies=2#post-6872616
I’ll give that a shout, haven’t been on the .org really. Good opportunity s’ppose. Thanks @henrywright
I think it’s in a core file somewhere, having looked into index.php (inside buddypress/templates/members/) now index-directory.php there’s no specific function call that I can see .
However you can build your own search form, just make sure you set the input name to be that of “s” and it should work. With AJAX you can look into buddypress.js to see how the devs have hooked up the form.
Yeah, I checked. This no longer works at all
<div id="pag-bottom" class="pagination buddypress"> <div class="page-count" id="member-dir-count-bottom"> <?php bp_activity_pagination_count(); ?> </div> <div class="page-links" id="member-dir-pag-bottom"> <?php bp_activity_pagination_links(); ?> </div> </div><!-- END PAGINATION -->
Why the dependency on AJAX? Any pointers to implement traditional pagination? I’m sorta stuck now.
