    I thought we could start a Topic about Beta Testing the next WordPress any conflicts working with BuddyPress. I hope this encourages others to report any Bugs with BuddyPress installed on Development site that may not be developer and open to the general community of any Issues they have run into.

    Hello – thanks for the thread @julianprice … and I hope my input here is useful as well. I’m a longtime WP admin but also administering our first BP site. I’m wondering if BuddyPress aficionados with critical sites recommend holding off on WP 4.1 a couple of weeks to observe compatibility conflicts before upgrading WP to 4.1? Would we consider that a best practice?

    I realize a staging site is useful as well, but my challenge is thorough testing on a staged site, which I’m sure other BP admins can relate to.

    Thanks to great WP/BP community for all the hard work and cooperation.

    James

    @jgwolfensberger I disagree, best practice would be testing on a stage/dev site first and then, upgrade your installation when no problem are found.

    Consider for example custom plugins and functions you have in your theme/WP installation, there are not the same as the many other websites with BP out there in the web.

    Thanks Renato! I still have an issue with having so many features to our BuddyPress site that a staged site test is not likely to truly weigh the impact of high user activity navigating our many features. But yes, absolutely, it is the proper first step, I agree!

    @jgwolfensberger No problem with WP 4.1 and BP 2.1.1 and bbPress. Just watch out for WP 4.1 compatibiity with custom theme or other plugins.

    @jgwolfensberger has @mercime indicated it good to go. Thanks BuddyPress Team for all your hardwork. I would encourage you James to have a local install especially if you attempting to configure BuddyPress. It has an extreme learning curve to configure it for your particular community needs.

    In my opinion, easier to create demo members/groups..,etc to see the settings work and perm ink structures you need to set before going n live site.

    Additionally has @espellcaste mentioned its best practice to do so.
