You’d think there’d be a more user friendly way to deactivate a plugin, or that updates would’ve been made to address this issue. My site shouldn’t BREAK from removing a plugin, period. This is a very sneaky way to have site owners keep your plugin. Like you “can’t leave the gang without getting beat up”. Do any of these UX things cross the developers minds or nah?
Is there any other way to delete this plugin.
If I delete all the tables in mysql will it stop the white screen.
Haven’t I been trolled enough by this plugin? I just want it GONE
So Automattic owns this plugin? Why not dedicate some developers etc towards it, towards the support forums, towards making it look pretty, etc. I’ve never seen a plugin with such popularity be so neglected on 2017 standards.
Is there a backend way to uninstall Buddy press? If I just delete it in cpanel and the database will it go away?

Anybody? Bueller…. Buellerr…..
…but now (only if logged in) I have a blank white page on site. This is some odd stuff.
Ok fixed it by removing some custom buddy press code in the function.php file
“Btw, I never learned Php and get along cuting and pasting my way through child-themes and even I can make it look good, so do not pretend to com plain about something you do not know how to use.
CSS and a bit of rearranging of code can achieve miracles, you just need vision, the main ingredient that makes a well designed internet pie.”
I’m sorry for ‘complaining’ about the #1 social plugin with hundreds of thousands of downloads, that has a UI from 2008. This is just long overdue, and someone needed to say it. I’d love to spend hours learning PHP, but I have to think about my entire site operations – business, getting investors, visual design, some coding, SEO, content writing, research, etc. It’s not always feasible. The User Profile page needs a complete overhaul! If I draw it out, can someone code the layout. I’ll pay you!! lol. Make some money off your BuddyPress PHP skills. User Management plugins (many) are lacking!
Also I’m saying just the layout alone, not CSS. Like the User Profile buttons should be compressed/grouped more. “View/Edit” area should be compressed more. Idc about the CSS theming so much as the layout, but I don’t know enough about PHP yet to change the layout.
I use the #1 selling wordpress theme Newspaper by tagdiv, and it’s mainly the User Profile & Registration page that can use some tweaking. Also I wish there was a way or easy way to add more user fields to the Member Directory – like a responsive and sortable table format.
I appreciate the work that is put in to Buddy Press, the versatility of it, and that it’s a free plugin, but I think it is being short-changed by not having a premium version that can make it look ‘prettier’. Not sure who’s in charge of the business operations, but should consider a premium add-on for UI/UX. People really would pay for it. Look at Ultimate Member. Buddy Press has a leg-up on them because you have more scale-ability with all the 3rd party add-ons, better performance, and larger user base.
I have had to paid a php guy to customize it, but I need more customizations. This is the only plugin stopping my site from blowing up. Do any of you BPers do custom work? I’ll pay for any custom work to get the layout moved around on User Profile (https://ibb.co/gNat1v) + sortable table Member Directory.
I’d go with Ultimate Member for looks alone, but it slows the crap out of my site and it doesn’t have some of the BP add-ons I want. If Buddy Press looked like UM or BuddyBoss, but kept the drop down menu user section (like Twitter), I’d be your first paying customer.
The whole freakin Plugin needs a UI & layout makeover. It’s 2017, looks like crap vs today’s UI/UX standards. This is why people are willing to pay for premium plugins like Ultimate Member plugin $200/year, or BuddyBoss theme – for design & looks alone. I’d even pay for a UI/UX upgrade that looks similar to Ultimate Member because BuddyPress has more add-ons and better performance. Start a kickstarter page lol and hire an excellent UI/UX designer! BuddyPress is too popular of a plugin to have bad design.
That seems beyond the scope of buddypress, you may want to search for a gamification plugin. Also, don’t hold your breath on getting an answer here. For such a popular plugin, the support sucks and I’m becoming less and less of a fan of buddypress. The solutions aren’t straight forward, it’s “Here modify 20 files and create this new child theme and create 1000 lines of code”. Not a very user-friendly plugin compared to others.
