Yes, i know the question has been asked more then once. Why is it that there is no BuddyPress API? i don’t understand how there can be so much plugins, since developers can’t figure out which function or variable does what. Yes, i know there is a skeleton plugin, and no, it doesn’t explain all of the buddypress functionality.
Yes, i know i can use all of wordpress’ functions, hooks and filters, but no ‘m not looking to use them. Why would i use BuddyPress in the first place, if i can also use the wordpress functions hooks and filters? yeah, i wouldn’t. So HOW can i figure out what bp_group_name for example does? Does it take one argument? two? Does it just echo the name of the ‘current’ group? How should i know this? how can i figure out IF there is a buddypress function that takes a group ID and gives me back the name of that group? i really am curious how all you developers figured that out.
I think a lot of developers that are known with other software expect an API, and turn away from BuddyPress because there isn’t one (just saying).
