BP Labs

BP Labs contains unofficial and experimental BuddyPress features for testing and feedback. Requires BuddyPress 1.6+.

BP Labs contains three unofficial BuddyPress experiments; @mentions autosuggest, Quick Admin, and Like Button. All experiments are in beta, and come with no guarantees.

@mentions autosuggest requires the Activity component, and extends its @messaging feature to help you find the short name of a user. It is integrated into comments, the "What's New" activity status box, Private Messaging (body), and bbPress v1 group forums. To trigger the autosuggest, type an @ followed by at least one other letter. For example, to mention to Paul Gibbs, you could type @Paul G, and it will show a list of users who match. You can then select one of these users, and their short name will be added to the text area (even if Paul's short name is paulgibbs).

Quick Admin requires Groups, and affects the group directory. Designed to help speed up accessing admin screens for each group, hovering over each group in the directory will reveal links to the admin screens for that group (e.g. edit details, group settings, group avatar).

Like Button requires the Activity component, and adds a "Like" button onto WordPress' Toolbar when viewing a blog post.

Remember, these are my own unofficial experiments for BuddyPress which I am making available for testing, feedback, and to give people new shiny things for their websites.

Requires: WordPress 3.4, BuddyPress 1.6 or higher
Compatible up to: WordPress 3.5, BuddyPress 1.7
