Dev Chat Summary for August 25, 2016

Trac Tickets

Date xprofile field enhancement (#5500) @boonebgorges has patch and sought feedback for:
a) modeling settings data on ⁠⁠⁠⁠BP_XProfile_Field⁠⁠⁠⁠ and ⁠⁠⁠⁠_Type⁠⁠⁠⁠ — @djpaulgibbs “It would be nice to pass the data to it to handle, if possible, rather than have to touch a global.”
b) what do we think of interface for date ranges? — @djpaulgibbs “The UI is nice”. @rayisme “I’m trying to figure out the use case for relative ranges”. @mercime reported a bug.

Extract & relocate core markup functions: Theme compat include functionality & search forms file (#6844) Feedback sought. @boonebgorges has assigned it to himself for review.

Select All link missing in BuddyPress Menu Selection (#5260) Testing needed for this to be committed.

Implement user capabilities for Activity component (#7176) @djpaulgibbs “I’m hopeful someone can come in and drop a knowledge bomb” (roles and capabilities). @boonebgorges has added this ticket to his review list🙂 @rayisme informed us that he created WP trac ticket “that would probably make dynamic caps easier to implement – https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/32316.”

Fatal error – Call to undefined function wp_generate_password() in bp-core\bp-core-options.php on line 77 (#7227) @rayisme has patch. Dev feedback needed.

@mentions break instagram oembeds if same username exists on site as instagram (#7084) @websupporter has dug deep into the Instagram issue and posted results of his research. Feedback requested.

Group type frontend integration (#7210) @rayisme has a second patch which includes some new parameters to bp_groups_register_group_type() and which will allow theme devs or site admins to show group types in front end. @boonebgorges “Just browsing the patch, but looks great at a glance. I like the params as a way of controlling the behavior.”
