Dev Chat Summary for December 14, 2016

BuddyPress 2.7.4

  • Release Date: TBA
  • There are currently 2 tickets in queue (1 open, 1 closed).
  • Can ‘change’ visibility on registration form even for fields marked “Enforce field visibility” (#7391) Ticket has been reopened to address coding standards.
  • Notice: Trying to get property of non-object (#7329) Has patch. Requested dev feedback from @rayisme
  • @djpaulgibbs: We are incompatible with PHP 7.1 as things stand – and I think we may have to rely on a fix in WordPress 4.7.x as well – so that’s the sort of thing that will likely go out once it’s ready.

BuddyPress 2.8 Tickets

Some more enhancement for translators (#5784) @slaffik recommended to close the ticket.

PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get_do_autolink() on null (#7337) @slaffik has patch. @djpaulgibbs noted that patch should extend beyond preventing fatal errors to making the function usable outside the template loop.

Uninstall button and routine (#2755) This ticket would have to be put on hold until decisions are made on routines and details required to export/copy then delete/drop BP DB tables and other options.
