    @poolie

    Hey everyone,

    i’ve build something in my spare time the last months, which is now finally open for beta-testing.
    the project is called »plazaa«. On plazaa you can rate/review/recommend locations in german cities (5 currently).

    plazaa: http://plazaa.de
    Profile example: http://plazaa.de/profil/poolie/
    A location: http://plazaa.de/koeln/restaurants/italienisch/rosticceria-massimo/

    It’s running WPMU and the latest BuddyPress version.
    Most of the work was on the templates and of course the functions.php ;)

    There are around 10+ plugins in use, like GD Star Rating (Star-Rating), YOURLS (plaz.es url shortener), Search Everything (going to look for other solutions probably), Invite Anyone, SEO for BP, W3 Total Cache ..and some more :)

    I would like to thank all people who contribute a lot of good code in the bp-forums, which helped me a lot (i’m a designer, not really a coder).

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    ps: don’t create too many fake accounts, thanks ;)
    pps: yes, it’s german ;)

    @poolie, that’s a quality design! Nice work. Good to see more people not sticking to the default buddypress interface. Plazaa is a complete face lift. I like it *thumbs up*

    If @antonrsa and @hnla feel like amateurs or depressed, what`s left for us mortals ?

    @poolie, habe mich gerade bei platzaa angemeldet. Tolle Seite! Sehr schön! Werde mich da als Düsseldorfer gerne beteiligen und meine Bewertungen und vielleicht ein paar Locations eintragen.

    Schön, schön und noch mal, schön! Die erste Buddypress Seite, die ich im Leben wohl benutzen werde…

    es gefällt mir viel. Sehr gut gemacht.

    Was haben sie benützt für den Locations? Sind Sie WordPress Custom Post Types?

    @poolie

    @rogercoathup no, they are normal blogposts actually :)
    with wordpress 3 you could use custom post types of course, but i didn’t need them.

    Agh. I can’t understand anybody! I need to learn German now. :P Awesome BuddyPress theme though. I hope you use your skills and creativity to create more.

    @poolie: Ah klar, ich verstehe. Die Felder gehen Direkt von TDO-Mini-Forms in den Custom Fields.

    Was ist auch klar … es vielen Jahren seit ich Deutsch gesprochen habe ;)

    @paulhastings0: yes, we should all have a little German, a little Spanish, a little Mandarin, and although it pains me to admit it, a little French. I was also saying how great the site looks. It’s good to see something well designed and focussed on the user experience.

    @hnla ja ja stimmt! I thought long and hard about that, but decided proper names and all shouldn’t be translated… Honest guv! :-)

    the site looks great! What kind of gallery plugin did you use? Is it self-hosted or somewhere else?

    @poolie

    the gallery plugin is self coded. i host it on a root server at hetzner.de

    Good job! Would you provide us – the community – that plugin? I looked for several solutions and couldn´t really find anything small but nice that fits my requirements. I´m looking for a simple gallery tool that offers users to make pictures or galleries public or privat, that has a category tag-function (e.g. this picture belongs to the category “nightlife”) and that includes some other stuff like automatic resizing, multi-upload, widget-displaying…etc…
    Any other good idea (anybody)? Any exeriences with the BP-Gallery plugin? Is there a stable version available yet? http://buddydev.com/buddypress/bp-gallery-beta-available-now-download-test-and-enjoy/

    I like it
