I’ve been out of BuddyPress game for a while, mainly because I’m not using it on websites I curate or work on, and I was committed to other projects.
While BP-Media is maintained by other developers, I’m the only one working on this plugin and I have received emails about it not working on the latest versions of WP and BP.
I started to look into it and the dev version should now be working on single-site installs, Today I’ll test on multisite and fix it. I can’t devote lot of time to it right now so any help, tester or developer, is appreciated.
The development version is now on GitHub at https://github.com/francescolaffi/BP-Moderation, if you are not confortable with git you can get the zipped dev version at https://github.com/francescolaffi/BP-Moderation/archive/master.zip.
Stable versions will be tagged in WP official svn repo.
How can you help to get it fixed?
- If you use this plugin on your site test the dev version (zip) from GitHub and post the issues to https://github.com/francescolaffi/BP-Moderation/issues (never test it on your production website)
- If you are a developer you can help to fix and improve it! Fork the GitHub repo and make a pull request or reach out at francesco.laffi on skype to discuss it.
I found out that BP-Moderation codebase is messed up, with logic and template mixed together and some singleton black magic to load the main classes, can’t understand how it seemed a good idea when I wrote it years ago, at least is not really extensive so its workable.
I started a new branch 0.2 for the refactoring, it will target PHP 5.3+, WP 3.6 and BP 1.8, maybe WP 3.5 and BP 1.7; the 0.1 branch will be compatible with BP 1.7/1.8, but won’t get new feature or compatibility with later BP versions.
