BP 2.4.1

This could be released next week. Six tickets are in queue.

#6675 WP 4.4 deprecates wp_title()

  • As of last week, wp_title() has been “un-deprecated” per https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/35624.
  • Twenty Sixteen and Twenty Fifteen have removed wp_title() from header.php while Twenty Fourteen through Twenty Ten themes still have it.
  • Patches have been provided by @im4th and @rayisme. Feedback welcome.

#6716: bp-screen-reader-text class and Themes overriding buddypress.css

  • So far, no one has reported any issue about this in the BP Forums.
  • One way to check if you need to add the bp-screen-reader-text class in your stylesheet is by navigating to your Settings > Email notifications screen.

bp-screen-reader-text
If you see “Yes, send email” and “No, do not send email”, do add the following to your theme’s stylesheet:

.bp-screen-reader-text { 
	clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px); 
	position: absolute; 
	margin: -1px; 
	padding: 0; 
	height: 1px; 
	width: 1px; 
	overflow: hidden; 
	clip: rect(0 0 0 0); 
	border: 0; 
	word-wrap: normal !important; 
}

BP 2.4.0 Feedback

  1. @rayisme has compiled issues reported in our forums with links to the solutions and posted them within @im4th‘s announcement https://buddypress.org/support/topic/buddypress-2-4-0-pietro/
  2. Feature request: ability to crop cover images. @im4th mentioned that he’s looking for a better solution than jcrop because imgAreaSelect is failing on mobile.

BP 2.5.0

Features and schedule will be discussed next week.
