BP Dev-Chat Summary : May 11, 2022.

Trac updates

  • #8693 we first talked about the behavior of the site invitations feature when BuddyPress is completely using the signups table (Multisite and custom WordPress config). We’ll need to add this feature support to these configs during the 11.0 development cycle.
  • As WordPress 6.0 is just around the corner, we will package a new maintenance release (10.3.0) asap to fix 7 bugs.
    • #8688 will bring a more optimized way to count group members.
    • Improvements to the BP Nouveau Template pack and to the Private Messages component.
    • A MySQL notice error which was logged when multiple notifications were batch marked as read #8676
  • We finally decided to punt #8687 to 11.0.0 to improve the way we load deprecated code. The plan is to only load the code that was deprecated 2 versions ahead the current one.

Next Dev-Chat

It will happen on May 25 at 19:30 UTC in #BuddyPress.

It’s now easier to test the BP Rewrites add-on

Hi everyone,

We’ve just deployed the BP Rewrites add-on on the official WordPress Plugin directory! Please take a few minutes to read the announcement post on BuddyPress.org and start testing it massively. Our goal is to improve it together and merge it into BuddyPress core when we all feel it’s ready.

Thanks in advance for your help and contributions.

BP Dev-Chat Summary : April 13, 2022.

BP Rewrites 1.0.0-RC1 feedbacks and next steps

@dcavins & @im4th agreed it was time to submit the plugin to the WordPress Plugins directory to enter into the massive testing time of the BP Rewrites feature as a plugin. Having the plugin available into this directory will make it easier for more people to test it and will help us to do the potential adjustments before thinking about merging the feature into BuddyPress Core. Get ready to have it soon listed into the BuddyPress Add-ons tab of the “Add New” Plugin screen of your WordPress dashboard.

BP Trac updates

  • #8676 (Notifications already marked as read issue) has been fixed and will be part of 10.3.0 minor release
  • #8675 (Group Invites User screen improvement) is almost ready to be committed (we still need to check it with the BP REST API). The work @oztaser and @im4th did on the ticket is a good example of how GitHub Trac integration can speed up our patch/PR review process. This enhancement will be part of 11.0.0 major release.

BP Support forum updates

This topic about DB overheat brought our attention although we were not able to reproduce the issue. We suspect a plugin interference. If you have any inputs about it, don’t hesitate to comment the topic to help us 🙏..

BP Rewrites 1.0.0 Release Candidate

Hi BuddyPress contributors!

“Release Candidate” means that we believe this first version is ready for release! The next step if everything goes well after a last round of testing is to publish the plugin on the WordPress.org Plugins Directory.

Many thanks to the ones of you who contributed to testing 1.0.0-beta2 🥰. Please help us make sure we’re ready to make this important step: Test this release candidate.

If you haven’t tested 1.0.0-beta1 or 1.0.0-beta2, please have a look at this announcement post about it.

What’s new fixed in the first Release Candidate of BP Rewrites 1.0.0?

fixed
Make sure BP Rewrites loads when BuddyPress is network activated. See #32.
fixed
Avoid a fatal error when trying to access to a BP Core Nav too early. See #33.

Props 💚

@adiloztaser@eha1, @imath.

Let’s contribute to BuddyPress’ next way of parsing URLs: test the first release candidate of BP Rewrites 1.0.0.

Please note BP Rewrites requires BuddyPress 10.0.0. Make sure to download the bp-rewrites.zip file from the Plugin’s GitHub repository release page. Use the “Add new” WordPress Administration Plugin screen to upload the zip file. Finally check BuddyPress is activated before activating BP Rewrites.

Happy testing 🙏 😍 🤝
