    What a coincidence!
    I just installed BuddyPress myself on my 4 year old blog and bbPress site, to create a higher level of community spirit.

    How do you see this plugin being used with the BuddyPress part - just interested to discover more in expanding my BuddyPress strategy?

    I've never used buddypress myself, what makes its plugin api diffrent ? I'll have to do a test installation at some point and see if I can add support for it. I dont imagine that it will be that much of an issue but I would try the plugin with the default theme, its likely that your theme or another plugin is messing with the JS and causing a problem because after a quick glance buddypress 1.7+ says its wp api compatible.

    Buddypress doesn't take over blog commenting, it only logs you in so that you can post as a logged in user of BP. The advantage of commenting via WP/BP while logged in, is that comments will be displayed in BP's activity stream. Improving this plugin to work on BP would mean hooking the comments into the activity stream so that all comments are displayed.

    There may be some useful guidance in this plugin here to figure a way to make it work http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-include-non-member-comments/

    @yukiko-kawa the bug when it would not show up at all when using a child theme is now fixed in the 1.4.4 release.

    @Prometheus Fire, thanks, sounds like something that wont be able to be implemented in a non-hackish way if at all until there is an API from google to export the comments.

    So for now I'm going to mark this topic resolved since there isnt much of anything to change and I'll keep a close eye on the emergence of an API that would allow this or some other work around in general to better integrate with Buddy Press as I'm sure there are many that would take advantage of it.
