Hi Socialpreneur. As far as I can see on anyone’s BP installation, it does not support blog post updates within groups.
I’m currently contemplating moving a network of educators to the BP framework as we currently use WordPress.
My only problem is that BP is fairly limited at the moment in terms of sharing.
We need groups to have file sharing capabilities as well as blog post updates appearing within them – two things which it currently doesn’t do.
Ideally these would run out of the box.
But it looks like I might have to magically pull some time out of my hat and start coding some plugins – not my ideal.
Another alternative we looked at was Elgg… it has the feature set we require but I find it really clunky to use, navigate and customize. I much prefer the ‘design’ of BP and WordPress.
I did send him a message through this site but didn’t think to do it through his own.
Cool. I thought I wasn’t going mad.
I’ll stop bothering you Andy so you can make more cool stuff.
Jeff, I tried installing Nicola’s plugins on a clean BP installation but some of them seem to break my plugins page and then make the database dirty, so I’m unable to reinstall them again without plugins functionality breaking again.
I’m gonna wait until his work is a little bit more stable.
Thanks Andy – that was what I was referring to.
Appreciate your attention.
Look forward to more great work.
