Mobile inquiry – high demand

  • Profile photo of voarsh


    We all know that social networking, blogging, communities are really getting popular and are in high demand. More and more people expect these services to be on mobile.

    @modemlooper has made a BuddyPress Plugin to make BuddyPress mobile friendly.
    He’s also told me he is developing a new Mobile plugin. I was wondering if BuddyPress itself, will be developing a mobile friendly version. There aren’t any online services that can create a mobile view except from DudaMobile, even that, does not work with BuddyPress, only WordPress.
    WPTouch doesn’t work for my BuddyPress, when enabling it, I get a blank screen. Which is a shame.

    Buddypress is already mobile friendly as the default theme is responsive. It all depends on what you want – just a theme or extra functionality for mobile? You don’t need a mobile plugin for any WordPress or BuddyPress site to work on mobile. BuddyPress mobile is not just about working on mobile though that’s exploring mobile functionality too.

    You should provide a responsive site when a user visits. This is the simplest thing you can do for your users. BP default has some responsiveness.

    You can use current BP mobile if you want something more dedicated. I am working on a different solution to accessing BP content from mobile devices. It’s taking longer because I am creating a sorta API to access the content so developers can access the content how they want instead of an all or nothing approach. I want cross platform posting and this takes even more time, working out security issues.

    The mobile core/API will be a seperate plugin that is getting open sourced and hopefully in the future could be an official BP component with others working on it. I will create an example “app” to connect to the mobile API. All this takes a lot of time. In about a week there will be a preliminary example app to show what’s going to be possible.

    Hi there

    I’ve found buddypress to not be mobile friendly. i can’t even access profiles, forums, groups or the member directory.
