    Hi all

    I have been working on a Buddypress theme, about 4 months I estimate due to having no knowledge of PHP.

    It is almost finished and would like some feedback on layout and functionality.

    http://www.onlijn.com

    Or register and check out the “like” system and other functions
    http://www.onlijn.com/register

    Thanks in advance

    Hi @peter-hamilton

    Very cool theme! I like the colour scheme you’ve used along with the flat design. Navigating around using my laptop, everything seems to work fine. My only criticism is when I use my tablet (Google Nexus 7) to view at portrait orientation, the 3-column layout seems a little squished. Aside from that minor issue, all looks good

    Have been busy updating the UI, butons were/are not consistent.

    I love Buddypres, and what I am able to do with it.

    More feedback would be appreciated.

    And dont hesitate to join, I hope it becomes the Facebook killer.

    I also seem to have removed the 1000’s of spam members I normally get, thanx to Wanguards security question.

    @peter-hamilton hey nice site peter it looks clean and not too crammed full of stuff and is easy to navigate, tbh i think you are on the right track, but maybe you could do with some kind of landing page explaining a little about your network and who you want to appeal to?

    Also i love how you have done the groups section and can add a header image to each group as well as an avatar! Would you mind explaining how you did this? as i would like my groups to also have its own header images, have you used a plugin to add this feature?

    Hi again

    You beat me to it mcpeanut, landing page is now online

    onlijn.com

    I will create a little tutorial soon on how I achieved my themes layout, quite a lot of work as it cost me 8 months of work.

    Anyway, please review my theme, and feel free to make an account, it is all working now.

    Awesome work, everything is perfect congratulations.
    But only thing which I didn’t like is active time ‘ago’. Its so lengthy. Eg: 2weeks 4days 30 minutes ago. Can’t it be like 2W 4d 30min ago or some Thing sweet shortly.

    Thank you once again really impressed.

    I have been trying to change the date output, but have not been able to, can not find the right file to adjust, some conflicts between BBpress/Wordpress/Buddypress who all use different functions.

    Btw. I know nothing of PHP or Javascript so can not write a function…yet

    Thanks for your feedback youmin, update coming soon.

    A few updates on the profile pages, members can now upload video, music or photo albums to the sidebar of their profile.

    And all avatars now link direct to members profiles instead of their activity, more like on Linkedin and I feel a much more personal page for members.

    Many more updates made, including author roles and front end article creation, now off to add them to sidebars etc.

    @peter-hamilton

    Few alterations made, thanks to feedback from you guys.

    Profile pages now a bit more organized, header image only shows on main profile page, other profile pages only shows links bar.
    Made background image larger to remove awkward empty space on left side, and made navigation easier by placing the links bar directly (back) under header image.

    I also experienced issues with the search options, with all three (wordpress/bbpress/buddypress) having their own search criteria, but I found help from you guys again, and fixed all these issues so people can search for articles, posts, topics, members and groups on the right place.

    Thanks again for the input

    To start I want to ask why McDonalds, its poison, the meat has been treated with Ammonia so it can be used for ever, do not go there again…

    What number, you mention a number to call, and I suspect you wrote the blog cause you own that nr., but that nr. is nowhere in the blog.

    And after giving it another read, it is more of a facebook update, or a rant, then an informative blog.

    Design wise….nothing to say since there was no design involved. if you really are going for a blogging carreer you need to start learning about content.

    Peace

    Whilst it’s great you’ve created your own blog, please note Your BuddyPress is a forum to showcase BuddyPress-related websites, themes and plugins. Also, if you do have something BuddyPress-related to share, please open a new topic.

    Thanks!

    Sorry but, is the web operative? I have trying the register but not work.

    Should be working, I get a new member almost every day.

    What is the issue?

    @thelaw

    Figured I would take a look but the demo login doesn’t work. For social networks that require registration and no preview, it’s a major stopping point for most people I know.

    @galador

    That’s true, I also run a buddypress website that users being able to preview it, in anyway… seriously helps.
    If a user can’t see any activity or can’t see what the site generally looks like even with screenshots they won’t sign up. Think of all the “sign-up-we-aren’t-a-scam” sites that are out there. That’s their biggest point, not letting you actually see what you are doing. So people will generally avoid them like the plague.

    If you want any ideas for a social website. Check out mine. roleplaycentral.org

    Aah, I am hearing that a lot, will think about that so people see more of what they get when joining up.

    Anyone who wants to try I got the demo working again.

    I am going to try a similar, but different theme with the new BBPress/Buddypress plugins, now using older version from earlier this year.

    Just to play around with the code, not doing it for much more then laughs at the moment.
