Has Anyone Figured Out How to Use Optimize Press 2 And BP Site Tracking?
Hi BuddyPress Community,
Anyone use Optimize Press 2 as a theme and their live editor pages. The pages look great, but there’s a disconnect with comments and the BuddyPress Activity Stream. This is unfortunate, because all my lessons are on these page templates.
Anyone know a work around for this?
Have you asked the optimizepress people about this?
I myself would not research this – if looking for the stuff you are asking about I would look at other page builders like the ones from siteorigin(?) – and wpmu’s upfront.
that’s just me.. but I would expect you to get your specific answer from the optimize people, probably not gonna get much help with / about that here..
@jrunfitpro What djsteveb said. Best place to ask is at the theme author’s forums. Saw their page with list of incompatible themes and plugins. BuddyPress has not been included in that list though no one has answered the question of one who asked if anyone has made it work with BP.
Already checked with them. They say it’s a BP issue. It’s becoming a popular theme. Not sure why it works on their non-live editor pages.
“They say it’s a BP issue” – Did they specify exactly what this issue is?
If they could point to a specific bug we could check if it’s been listed in the trac or something..
If they have no specifics – then it sounds like they simply have no desire to make their theme work well with BP – and I would consider other options. For the prices I saw on their site – I would expect a lot – I think you get the same functions elsewhere for free, and similar options with premium support elsewhere for about $19 –
if it’s “becoming a popular theme” – I think that’s great, there are a lot of theme’s becoming popular and I hope more and more of them will include extra things for styling BP specific features – even basic themes can at least work with BP just fine – if there is something theme specific that breaks BP stuff then have to ask specifically why.
Here’s what they said,”The reason is because OP uses custom post type for live editor pages, and is handled a bit differently than normal and the data goes into a different database table, but the underlying issue is that some plugins just don’t look for this type of data so that is why they don’t do anything with it. Kind of a double edge sword here honestly. There are many other plugins that have similar issues where either their styles don’t work on live editor pages, or shortcodes won’t render – among other things, but it is due to how that plugin is designed as the developer didn’t take into account all the possible ways it should look for data.”
Buddpress is cool, but it’s not worth me having to rework a whole theme for.
@jrunfitpro – one more question for ya – in your original post are you saying that you have like “static wordpress “pages”” – and when people leave a comment on one of your pages that the info does not get pulled into your activity stream?
I think I have a similar thing going on with one of my wpmu err.. wordpress multi-site setups – and not sure that the main site’s “page” comments are pulled into the main activity stream either – I have a widget that displays the recent comments on the side, not sure if there is a way to pull newer comments on a page published two years ago into the current / top of the activity stream.
This may be an issue that is not just a theme thing but other setting somewhere.
Hi @djsteveb . That does sound familiar. I know there’s a setting in the BP panel for user site tracking. However, that’s already on for me.
Would love to get this connection made and resolved. When was the last BP update?
@jrunfitpro – hopefully one of the bp devs will chime in as to whether or not the comments on static pages, and or if comments on multi-site blog posts / static pages are supposed to be pulled into activity stream when site tracking is turned on.
This COULD be a bug that needs to be put into trac..
or it may need to be a feature request to add an additional setting somewhere to enable or disable or something..
The last bp update was June 18th, 2015 according to the blog and the download page here.
Not sure how to contact one of the devs to ask if this is an intended action – also not sure if this lack of comment tracking is due to my use of some old plugins, or me not using the default theme – I could convert one of my test sites to see if doing all defaults makes any difference.
Maybe @boone or @james or someone knows about this.
I could see many people finding this as a normal setting getting out of control – and I wonder if new comments on an old post should show up in the most recent activity stream , or would be added to a thread WAAY back in the activity if the post / page was created a year ago.. know what mean?
Hopefully someone else can shed some light on how this is supposed to work so we can know if it’s working and if there are any current methods for modifying the current, or future intended behaviors.
It’s too bad the title of this thread has Optimize Press in it – as I THINK some of the BP folks will completely dismiss it as it’s main question appears to be about a paid third party thing – yet the issue itself may be related to all bp installs actually.
Thank you @djsteveb. I’ll see if I can contact one of them. Maybe I’ll start a new thread too with the correct heading. Would love to get this resolved.
