Upgrading from 2.9.4 to 3.x

  • John


    I have taken on development of a site which currently uses buddypress 2.9.4, although really only uses the members profile functionality, so no groups, activity streams, notifications, friendships, private messaging etc.

    In truth, I don’t think the BP was the right choice for the site but it’s so baked into the site now that changing to something different just isn’t an option.

    I’m currently in the process of developing a new theme for the site and so now would be a good time to upgrade from 2.9.4 to 3.2 (current latest).

    The only add-on plugin for BP on the site is BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Fields Type, for which I see development has now ceased but that there is a replacement for.

    Is there anything that I should be aware of, gotchas etc, in making the upgrade? I’m quite wary of making the upgrades as the existing codebase isn’t mine and I am new to BP development, although a very experienced WP dev.

    I’ve read the release notes and nothing leaps out at me as being a massive problem but I am anticipating some, deprecated functions being one.

    So, any general or specific advice from others who have gone through the upgrade would be appreciated!
