Re: The BuddyPress UI Design and conceptual approach to Social Networking
i would have to painfully agree that there are some serious usability issues that have popped up in the latest versions of BP. I think @finni3 hit the nail on the head that the changes since 1.1.X do not seem to have made sense in terms of ease of use or accessibility. What i am afraid is happening is that the entire project is/had become too much a programmer’s project and things like optimization have taken precedent over usability. This has been my number one fear all along that UI concepts (like the Wire)would get tossed aside to accommodate back-end efficiency. I (for one) am for slowing down the release cycle at this point and let’s get some more user centric testing in place BEFORE major version releases.
