@style960…similar, but the page you referred me to is a paid plugin.
But thank you for the response.
djsteveb-thank you for the reply. I thought it would be interesting to put an activity stream under different kinds of content. But also wanted the page to look more ‘Facebook’ than ‘CNN’ if you know what I mean.
thank you for the help!
wow! Yeah, that is so cool…I am dying to see how you did it. I want to mix the content though. So imagine a newspaper story, with its own activity feed under it. Right column being like yours with perhaps ads etc.
How is the load on your servers? I’m a bit worried that BP might not be able to handle a high traffic site…
I love what you’ve done…I’ll check out the demo!
Thanks and cheers!
Dear Mr. Buddyboss…
Once again, thank you so much for the informative and specific reply. Two gigs of ram it shall be!
I wish I could attend your lecture…I really do. I’ve not been to a WordPress/Buddypress anything yet, and I am dying to go. Absolutely dying. I want to get far more involved with the WordPress/Buddypress company/community. We are both students (married, older etc) and are living on student loans…so for now, travel for us is limited to the bus 🙁
I have another question unrelated to capacity-should I start another thread, or may I ask it here?
thank you buddyboss! How much ram do you feel would be adequate.
I guess the other thing is, a CDN is going to be acting like a cache, and so, since a buddypress site can’t use cache any way (or it serves stale content) things like W3 etc should not be part of the install?
sounds like a lot of servers-and a lot of ram. Is concurrent users and speed a priority for the buddypress teams I wonder?
thanks guys. I understood that buddypress was working on splitting queries etc but wondered how it handled concurrancy issues in its present state and how the proposed query changes were expected to improve the situation.
The question was asked ‘how big a scale?’. Our project is not spec’d out that way yet (it will be), but I’m exploring possible solutions, but I’d say in the 100k concurrent user order of magnitude. We would expect a large number of groups and within those groups very large numbers say in the 6 figure order of magnitude.
For some reason I didn’t get notified you had replied. But thank you so much for reaching out.
To answer your question, I have no plugin. I was just guessing that this would be a common BP concept.
So this is impossible then?
Dear Mercine and Paul,
I got the issue resolved by deleting the plugin and redownloading and reinstalling it. Its not crashing the page any longer, but I haven’t done anything with it yet.
Thank you so much for your help. Its a wonderful community.
I did in fact contact my host, and they told me its an issue with BuddyPress and not a hosting issue. Its true of course, so really there is nothing I suppose that can be done.
I did want to ‘go off’ about this a bit. You can just skip over the following few sentences as I know its not your job to manage or work with Buddypress and that you’re just trying to help me out. For which, I am greatfull. Very much so.
First of all, I love BuddyPress. I love everything about it. The concept, the way its built, the impact it could have and should have. I was so freaking excited about this release I left work early to install it.
Having said, that, what is it with the BuddyPress team, and their leadership? Buddypress is the future of WordPress, or at least a huge chunk of it. No other plugin would be released or if released, used, if the person downloading that plug in had to access and touch 3 and 4 files, examine the database and make a trouble call to their host. Are you kidding me/us??
I know there are great people working on Buddypress, but releasing something this vital, this cool in this state is just ‘WordPress abuse’ in my view.
Fix the thing so that its installation matches the rhetoric of ‘easy install’ or ‘tested’ or what ever. Or change the darned rhetoric to say ‘must know how to modify files and databases and be willing to spend the time to do it’.
But ‘break the users site as soon as its activated’ and then tell the user to ‘fix it yourself’, is just not cool. And it really really p’os people too.
Thanks Paul. You’re great for having gotten this far in my note.
yeah-tried those suggestions. Its still wacked.
I was really excited about BP 1.7. So much so I left work early just to do the install and try it out. Its so very, very disappointing to still see the same old, same old issues. Don’t the BP people test their releases?
Anyway, I’ve deleted the plugin. I’ll reinstall it when the bugs are worked out, and I don’t have to tear through the files and the db to get the thing to work. Its not ready as it is.
Thanks for your help. Cheers.
I too am having issues, and had raised the issue of bugs, difficulty in installing the plug in, and questioned if the plug in was actually beyond beta. Apparently questioning of the app is not viewed kindly, and my thread was closed before anyone really addressed my concerns. I mention this only because you must be careful not to offend a few of the Buddy Press developers lest you too get cut off before you get your answer.
I’d suggest avoiding any question or phrase that might bring into question the functionality, ease of use, or bug state of the application.
