I completly agree it is important to give back to the community – please don’t miss the second part of my post about doing the nice thing and think our company is out be evil
I was just saying I can totally see how a small company would try and hide all their code and try to get something back per plugin but as we realised early on the freemium model is the only way to be successful within the WP community long term.
Really interesting thread guys.
We are a few weeks away from releasing our first and potentially very lucrative plugin (WP not BuddyPress) and thought about selling our plugin and making some cash per user download but the main inhbiting factor for us was that we would be limiting it’s reach by it not being available in the WordPress repository.
In an ideal world we would also like to do the ‘nicer’ thing and go down the GPL route for everything we do without thinking twice but at the end of the day after many months of development your first GPL plugin is the hardest one to get out the door as it is a complete mind shift from the old closed software model we have been used to!
Sorry I haven’t been in here for a while as clients just keep givng me new work
Don’t try and follow that code I posted above as that was specific to the particular plugin I was using and which was messing with the BuddyPress Ajax
From looooong hard experience this issue WILL be another plugin messing with your BuddyPress Ajax so as much of a pain as it is disabling ALL your plugins do it and then repost if you are still habing this issue.
Automattic have got back to me which is great as I had a feeling they might not even respond unless my email address ended with @microsoft.com etc
Good to know they are at least replying to us smaller companies!
Thanks for the further comments Jeff.
I realise that the VIP service is for larger / select clients but sometimes us small time developers might stumble onto managing the next Facebook for a client and not be able to scale such a site quickly enough
I have already explored some other avenues myself but maybe a BuddyPress site that could be considered high profile / having a great deal of potential could get Automattic to trial such a BuddyPress management service?
Will let you know whether this goes anywhere via the Automattic route!
I have just come across sub-addressing myself yeah – looks like the perfect temporary fix
My own domains email accounts don’t allow it easily but I will just create 1 gmail account per user that needs multiple accounts.
Thanks for your help guys.
Thanks again John.
Is manually hacking the SQL database a no no to try and get around this wp_signups ‘issue’ then?
I will look into the user switching plugins first thing in the morning here in the UK.
I also steering well clear of 2.8.1 as the main site I am working on is only just launched and we need something that is at least generally considered stable!
Which code snippet addresses this issue on bp 1.02 then as I am confused?
If you can post your final code Plrk I am happy to give that a try
EDIT – just tried adding Burt’s into my bp-custom.php (using 1.0.1) and got a white screen of death…
That Easy Button tutorial is great and Chris replies with great comments really quickly.
Thanks John – user switching type plugins is one option I am looking into now.
I was thinking if once I register the users using a ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ type email address I could simply manually edit the email address within that users area but no idea if that will unleash a lot of issues somewhere down the line?
I am still on 2.71 and 1.01 so can’t help directly with version issues but have you definitely put the correct details in the Forums Setup within the BuddyPress dashboard area?
Just launched a new BuddyPress based site for a client who was running a normal WordPress based site before hand:
The site has been set up as a music community site for people who use the music service Spotify and want to do more than ‘just’ submitting their playlists.
Lots of issues and things we have learnt about BuddyPress, WordPress MU etc during the delelopment and hopefully now the site is launched we might have more time to get involved answering questions on these forums rather than asking them
Thanks for this Jeff.
For now I have removed the whole widgets area on the end users blog dashbords as I haven’t got time to code this but I will write up some code here to help others with similar issues in the next few days.
Found out the cause at last!
I was using a custom plugin and that was using the wrong Ajax url path – it was setting the following:
‘ajaxurl = <?php echo admin_url(‘admin-ajax.php’); ?>’
but needed to be as follows
‘upload_ajaxurl = ‘<?php echo admin_url(‘admin-ajax.php’); ?>’
Thanks for everyones help
Hey Paul thanks for the reply. I thoguht I was invisible for a while there!
I have 13 odd plugins and have activated and deactivated them all and still no luck
Will try all the above again now…
Will using the following type of jQuery coding cause issues?
‘var $j = jQuery.noConflict();’
Thanks again for you help!
Anyone here – I can pay for someone’s time if needed?
Anyone able to help me with this as this is the only thing preventing me from getting a site live?
Many thanks in advance!
Have realised teh auto complete / searching of users names (Ajax) is also not working.
The action this areas callis is this one: messages_autocomplete_results.
I would really appreciate some help with this guys as I have been stuck with this issue for 48 hours now
Just to add to this – within Firebug both the post action directory_groups and post action directory_members give me nothing back
Hey John thanks for the reply.
I am indeed using deep integration using with bbPress – version 1.0-alpha-6 as recommended by a great online turorial. The integration worked perfectly until a little while ago (can’t pinpoint this time) but I now have an issue where bbPress knows I am logged in as admin but clicking on the http://www.mysite.com/forums/bb-admin/ link doesn’t work first time, I have to click Log Out and re log in.
Do you think this is related then?
I also notice a rogue 0 output at the bottom of the buddypress-groupswidget on my home page once I click on any of the group headings, Newest, Active, Popular
Would it be helpful to post the Post Data from within Firebug?
Many thanks in advance.
Thanks for this Burt – was exactly what I was looking for!
I tried that Paul and it didn’t seem to work with the functions I was using – no idea why!!
I have managed to answer my own question but thoguht I would post a follow up in case any other jQuery newbies run into this.
Basically you can load your own jQuery scripts safely by putting jQuery into â€œno conflictâ€ mode and then use a different shortcut for jQuery:
var $j = jQuery.noConflict();
// Use jQuery via $j(...)
Hope this help someone in the future as this had me really scratching my head and losing MANY hours
