Is anybody working on this?
The ability to have threaded wires is quite important (and urgent) for me so if nobody is making a plugin for this, and since it’s not on the roadmap I will certainly have to.
Any suggestions are welcome!
Check out a cool plugin by Sandra Petronic that does what you want it to do:
Discussion thread here:
Hope that helps!
Oh… I agree! That’s what makes Twitter next to impossible sometimes. You see out-of-context replies all the time… and you have to try and check out the “walls” of the various people talking to each other try try and figure out what the conversation is even about. Facebook does a good job of this. Of course… you can also reply right inline too. Which is pretty darn cool. I’m happy with what BP does for now. But look forward to the future.
I’m gonna check out that plugin now! Thanks r-a-y
Yes, it is on the roadmap:
BuddyPress 1.3 (TBD) / Wire: “In-line replies to messages”.
I have asked for “threaded” items many times in this Forum, but it seems WP-guys do not like “threaded” things (besides P2-theme)……
I do not understand the comments you have made within above mentioned TRAC-ticket.
Just have a look at the link within this TRAC-ticket; there you will see a threaded Forum which works very nice and intuitive…..
This is kind of diverting from the original topic, but what I meant in your ticket is BuddyPress forums are powered by BuddyPress groups.
So you can’t really have “threaded forums” without having “threaded groups” or some way to organize and categorize groups, which currently doesn’t exist.
If you’re just talking about displaying the forums vertically, that’s possible via CSS.
Hope that makes sense…
Thanks for pointing that out, sorry for the late reply.
I’ll give that a go.
Already working on this – sort of. You’ll see when it’s ready.
thanks Andy, good to hear !
THREADED = INTUITIVE
Look forward to it! I think it will add a tremendous amount of depth to bp.
The dillema I have now is whether to use the recommended plugin or wait for Andy’s implementation
@Andy, are you working on threaded comments on the wire, or categorized (parent/child) groups and forums. both are discussed in this thread but they are very different things. But both of them would be excellent features.
I am now working on a project where parent-child or categorized groups are essential. I guess there are two ways to do this: having the parent group be a group itself or just an empty container. I guess both approaches have their uses.
Update: Just checked the latest changelog and Andy has just added initial threaded activity commenting in trunk.
I guess it’s relatively safe to say this feature will be a part of BP 1.1.3!
