Ok, I love WordPress and I love Buddypress and I think this open source software is awesome, but there are things I just don’t understand! I don’t understand why not only are there frequent “updates,” but it seems things break all over the place when you do update…..and of course things break if you don’t….so damned if you do, damned if you don’t scenario….I understand there are “hackers” hacking our sites….and I don’t get them either….but I do my banking online everyday and my bank doesn’t do constant updates for “security”…..I don’t think even the government does so many updates for “security”……so I just don’t understand
Then there’s the “stuff works….sometimes” problem. I tested registration earlier and all was perfect….within 2 hours, no more perfect……..no code changes, no .htaccess changes, no changes at all…..just comes and goes like the waves of the sea……
Then there’s the plugins….hit or miss, dependent on what version of of the plugin you’re using, WordPress version you’re using, Buddypress version you’re using, theme you’re using and of course, your theme’s version…..goodness gracious…..then, you finally get a great plugin that you love, only to have to deactivate/delete it upon a WordPress uprade, Buddypress upgrade, theme upgrade, or some other upgrade for something, somewhere…….
I have experienced plugins no longer supported, themes no longer supported, older theme versions no longer supported, older versions of wordpress no longer supported, older versions of buddypress no longer supported…….
lol…..I’m sorry, but I’ve been reading these forums for quite some time and there seems to be so many of us in the same boat…….I messed up when I decided to further my education….should have just become a programmer……..
Is it a funding issue? Maybe I can put a “donate” button on my site to try to raise some funds for WordPress, Buddypress, plugin development, theme development, ect………
I’m just frustrated and confused!!!!
