Nightgunner5 (Ben) would also be an excellent person to lead bbPress.
There certainly are quite a few talented folks who could potentially take some sort of evil dictator role.
haha, you are both new _ck_ s!
My meaningless vote goes to whoever dislikes bbPress becoming a WordPress plugin the most! They get a second vote if they want to add more features to the core (I vote early and often!)
AND HE’S HUMBLE!
Another +1 for making chrishajer Dictator for Life!
Well you have my ‘vote’ for keeping it independent but the plugin thing is probably a done deal…
I totally agree with you but the decision has already been made by the powers that be.
No one is more disappointed by this decision than I, but there is probably nothing we can do to change it…In reply to: Trac Updates for 1.1
Thanks for addressing my plugin and user list tickets
Here’s a little bad news re: BuddyPress (well for me anyway):
I asked Andy (one of the lead developers of BuddyPress) and there will probably never be a proper out-of-the-box way to have multiple bbPress installs integrated with a single BuddyPress install (unless of course someone develops a plugin to do so independent of BuddyPress’s standard release)
Looks like it will be one bbPress install paired with one BuddyPress install integration wise.
For most folks this is not a major deal but I personally didn’t like this. I was excited about the idea of tons of bbPress forums integrated together (same user database) working properly with one BuddyPress install. oh well.
The sticking point? The ‘activity stream’ is tricky when it comes to showing bbPress forum activity. I got the multiple bbPress installs working in the sense that they all shared the same user databases but the ‘activity stream’ didn’t want to show the forum activity on the various independent bbPress installs.
The thing I dislike the most about BuddyPress is how the ‘activity stream’ is in relation to ‘Groups’ and, you guessed it, bbPress. Still having a dog of a time getting these things to work together with a NORMAL one-to-one BuddyPress bbPress integration!!!
Haha, we must have been separated at birth!
RE: development activity and attention, your twitter remarks say it all. I know bbPress isn’t going to ‘die’ but it’s just so stagnant right now compared to BuddyPress and WordPress. It’s night and day.
Yeah, they are merging WP and WPMU. Smart idea in my humble opinion.
I don’t know how else to say this: I’m losing interest in bbPress.
Wondering how easy BuddyPress is to pickup…In reply to: BuddyPress 1.2 + bbPress 1.0.2 – freshness in GMT
Glad you brought this up. How the heck have you gotten BuddyPress’s activity stream to work with an external bbPress install? (I’m assuming your bbPress forums folder is on a separate domain than the buddyPress install? It’s not in the ‘default’ /forums location, right?)
I’m been unable to get the bbPress activity to show up in the BuddyPress activity stream even when the bbpress install is located in the /forums location.
This whole ‘groups’ vs. ‘forums’ thing is driving me nuts.
Grrrr…when people post questions about bbPress working with BuddyPress on the BuddyPress forum it seems like they always send up back here!In reply to: bbBlog 2.0 (plugin)
lol, have been pondering the same thing. The decision to require WordPress to run bbPress is also making me rethink my various bbPress project ideas…In reply to: Keeping spam out of forums
Not sure about the rest of you, but I certainly seem to have quite a few spambot users signing up. They don’t seem to actually leave any spam but I notice them registering and sitting there. Kind of freaks me out, like they are sitting there all quiet, planning an attack!
There are various ‘human tests’ type plugins but I’ve had problems with them not working properly and preventing legitimate users from signing up. Anyone else had issues with those plugins not working properly?In reply to: Installing Problems
bbPress is currently not a WordPress plugin (you don’t access it on the WordPress plugins page, etc)
You need to download it here and follow those instructions:In reply to: Sneak peek at bbPress.org 2.0In reply to: Summary of new Features in bbPress 1.1
Glad to hear ‘mass delete users’ is being eyed as well. Will make it easier to get rid of spam users.
Hope they improve the sorting of users as well (one should be able to sort by date registered to see latest ones, if they are spammers, etc)
@michayu & nerieru:
bbPress can top vBulletin but downgrading it from a standalone product to a more-complicated-to-install WordPress plugin is not the way to go.
@Maurice: I’m with you. Very disappointed to hear bbPress will become a WordPress plugin. Grrr, I do not want to have to install WordPress every single time I want to install bbPress!
@chrishajer: Yeah, read that a while back. I really hope this will be reconsidered.
@nerieru: I’m with you, would be much more in favor of an integration plugin than making bbPress itself a plugin. The thing that puzzles me is this sudden decision that bbPress MUST be a plugin. Why not polish up and release 1.1 and 1.2, 1.3, etc first an then reevaluate? Why a final roadmap decision right now?
God forbid it become a plugin. That will be a very sad day. I hope Matt reconsiders.
I’m with you re: keeping bbPress standalone.
I do not want to have to install WordPress every single time I install bbPress.
The Sandbox theme is awesome…great to see you working on this HSeatSleeper.
There was talk a while back about bundling Sandbox as a default WordPress theme. It would be great to see this happen and bbPress include a variation as well!In reply to: BB press + WP Press integration
I agree 100% with HSeatSleeper.
Gravatars works great with bbPress. Best of all the webmaster or editor does not have to be concerned about anything being uploaded to the server, security issues, etc.
