Dev Chat Summary for August 31, 2016

BuddyPress 2.7

Trac Tickets

BP-legacy: split group single admin.php in separate template files (#7079) @hnla has committed this to trunk. If you have copied over `groups/single/admin.php` and made some changes, there won’t be any changes to your theme. You might want to consider, however, “updating your file/s to the newer modular markup to enjoy improvements”, @dcavins said.

Improve `$args` included in ⁠⁠⁠⁠`bp_current_user_can`⁠⁠⁠⁠ and ⁠⁠⁠⁠`bp_user_can`⁠⁠⁠⁠ filters (#7192) @dcavins requested feedback from @rayisme who gave the nod. Update: @dcavins has committed patch to trunk.

Select All link missing in BuddyPress Menu Selection (#5260) @tw2113 has committed patch to trunk.

Extract & relocate core markup functions: Theme compat include functionality & search forms file (#6844) @boonebgorges has committed this to trunk.

Use WP page names for BP directory pages headings (#6765) @hnla, @imath, @boonebgorges, and @dcavins have contributed patches for this ticket and @rayisme has shared a code snippet. @hnla requested dev feedback.

strtotime() is evil don’t use it (#5781) @rayisme has committed patches for this ticket. He requests feedback on the `5781.mysql2date.patch`. “All of our `⁠⁠⁠⁠strtotime()⁠⁠⁠⁠` calls assume that GMT is the default timezone.  If the server’s timezone is anything but GMT, then our time rendering is wrong. Almost all of BP’s timestamps are in GMT.” Dev feedback requested.

Screen notifications settings page (#6712) @rayisme has patch. Dev feedback welcome.

Date xprofile field enhancement (#5500) @boonebgorges has updated patch. This ticket “is mostly done – just working out a couple of UI and acccessibilty issues near the end.”

BP Types UI

@boonebgorges and @dcavins will be developing the new dashboard UI for creating Member Types and Group Types as a plugin first. @boonebgorges has created the new repo at https://github.com/buddypress/bp-types-ui
