Re: Is BuddyPress confusing to users?
*cough* Yours for a billion squillion dollars.
This is one of the best threads I have read this week. I have no time left this evening to share my thoughts fully, but in a nutshell, I think for a quick blog post option in the BuddyPress (frontend? UI?) — *not* just the home blog theme, like P2 — makes sense. I think it would be worth exploring the idea in this discussion.
As such, I spent the evening throwing together a plugin that adds a ‘New Blog Post’ link underneath a user’s “Blogs” menu. You can get the alpha 0.1 release from http://djpaul.dangerous-minds.net/postcard.zip (it’s called “Postcard’).
As its an alpha and I’ve only spent about 3 hours on it so far, the form doesn’t do anything yet, but I’d like some feedback on what people think. I’ll probably end up releasing it as a plugin anyway.
