Enterprise Nation

  • Roger Coathup


    We’ve just put Enterprise Nation (one of the biggest sites on the BuddyPress platform) through a makeover – new colour schemes and layouts, and a host of new features and offers.

    Would be great to get your thoughts – free chocolates for the best bug find.

    Thanks, Roger, 21 Inspired

    Looks great – and like a lot of work.
    What are you using for hosting ?

    @shanebpdev – sorry, just seen your comment. Thanks for the feedback.

    The client is partnered with a publishing company, and uses the publishing company’s servers — unfortunately, I don’t have too many details on the specification — concentrating on the development side of this project.

    At one stage, we had considerable server problems (when we were handling 100 / 1000s of new member registrations each day). I suspect though that this was due in no small part to the number of DB queries being fired off on each page view. Hopefully, that issue is considerably reduced with 1.7+. We’re still 1.6.x for Enterprise Nation.




    It Looks nice, just i suggest adding the color in selected menu of the current section.








    I’m not sure if 1.7 reduces the number of queries fired per page, but it does have a new BP_User_Query class that scales much better – a real ‘boone’ to installs with large memberships.

    And that class has some very handy action and filter hooks – without which it would be considerably more difficult to write the premium block member plugin that we’re about to release.

    Discussion about the need for those changes began back in 1.5 as more large installs were having scaling issues due to slow queries.

    I no longer have access to the large install that revealed the issues.
    So if you upgrade Enterprise Nation to 1.7, I’d be very interested in any info you care to share about the outcome.
