BP Dev-Chat summary: February 3, 2021

7.2.0 Maintenance release

@im4th believes we should package this maintenance release soon. Targeted date is the day before next dev chat (February 16). He asked the team to do some testing of BP Nouveau using the Twenty Twenty-one WordPress theme as the 2 commits added to the 7.2.0 was about improving the BP Nouveau companion stylesheet. Let’s try to improve our default template pack before februry 16. @vapvarun will check it (as well as @im4th).

8.0.0 progress

  • @im4th added a first patch to the ticket about introducing new xProfile field types to manage WordPress fields (description, first & last name, Website) from the front-end member’s profile (#7162). He understood it was very expected by BuddyPress users, so please do test the patch and share your feedbacks and improvements about it.
  • @dcavins updated the swap-atwho-for-Tribute patch he had created before about #8001. It’s working as expected. He will next move the suggestion lookup from wp-ajax to the BP REST API. He’ll post a new patch soon.

Next Dev-Chat

It will happen on February 17 at 19:30 UTC and of course in #BuddyPress. If you have ideas or questions, feel free (and we are strongly encouraging you) to comment this summary to share them!
