    Hi, this Youzify plugin is great and should have been incorporated in BP core, as it makes BP up-to date, modern looking and USEFUL in many ways.

    There are however, it seems that Youzify is not allowing some other useful buddypress plugins to work properly.
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-edit-activity/ : this plugin works fine with latest WP + BP installation (fresh install, no other plugin). However, when Youzify is activated it NO MORE shows the “edit” option for activity posts although it shows “edit” option for reply/comments to activity post (but NO edit is possible).

    There are some other BP plugins equally useful like http://www.philopress.com/products/buddypress-simple-events-pro/ – I have not yet tested if Youzify is okay with it. Thanks.

    Hello @ronia,

    Thanks for using our plugin, we are happy that you liked it!

    Actually, the BuddyPress Edit activity plugin support only the default BuddyPress post type, in Youzify we created many custom post types Audio, Video, Quotes… to offer advanced functionalities which make it normal that they won’t be supported by default by that plugin. So we are not blocking any features just the way the other plugin is created does not support custom post types and that’s not their fault either as each post type has a different structure.

    We already created an addon that offers advanced edit features, for more details please check this topic below:

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Hi Kainelabs

    Thanks for the most super-fast support reply I ever got. Yes, the link you provided is extremely helpful. It provides a stand-alone useful plugin to edit activity posts and is a premium plugin almost near in price to Youzify itself. I understand what you have said. However, it will be great if side-by-side to this premium plugin there is an option in Youzify to edit standard bp activity posts for those who do not need video, audio or other fancy posts but just basic text status-es and ability to edit it OR an option to keep active the usual plugins without activating the extra-s that Youzify implements. The main purpose is : whatever BP and other BP add-ons / plugins provide – keep those as they are (without disabling or defuncting them) and add Youzify to make an excellent UI which it does already. Thanks again.

    Hello @ronia,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, I totally understand how it feels when some functions cannot be found by default.

    For the pricing, We spent months and months just to create that BuddyPress Edit Plugin addon to make it the best one on the market in terms of functionalities, user experience, performance, and design.

    As a side note, it’s unfair to compare the price to Youzify as Youzify is underpriced and it’s even a one-time payment and for lifetime updates.

    Also, we never blocked any plugin and we will never do as by having other addons that support our products that’s a strong point for us. And our plugin code source is already open in case anyone wants to check if we are doing anything specious to block other plugins.

    I really hope you understand our situation, also in case the free BuddyPress Edit plugin team wanted to create compatibility with Youzify our doors are open for them at any time 🙂

    Best Regards, KaineLabs.

    Free BuddyPress Edit plugin is already compatible with Buddypress as I told you. Even with Youzify it seems to work partially/incompletely in case of comments. I totally understand that Youzify is under priced and I fully agree there is NO free lunch. However with many paid plugins the future is not always as great as it is for the initial 2, 3, 4, or even 10 years. Recently Buddyboss instead of being a super-useful enhancement to BP became stand-alone and it is not only stagnated now BUT also many bugs and issues, obviously because the company-size is far smaller than the huge BP community or github community. Many plugins also just “die” or join dead pool for example see this https://www.wpadminui.net/ : “After 6 years of development, WP Admin UI will no longer be maintained. The wpadminui.net website will remain accessible for documentation only. Thank you!”. Thus, paid plugins never come with the guarantee that they will serve us as long as WP+BP is there. So where, we as customers are left? Its a huge headache UNSOLVABLE when such an end comes. Paying a DEV to continue the plugin is not always possible or easy.

    However this is not to say Youzify is like this. Its price is really small for the great benefits it provide. And I also fully understand no plugin has been wilfully blocked. I understand for the development of plugins like Edit Activity or Block user etc or the All Access – there has to be a price tag as that will help to earn livelihood of the DEVs. I really understand the situation and will surely consider the purchase of plugins I need, very soon. Only things is that lifelong commitment to WP+BP as long as their life is, is what gives an assurance to the purchaser and encourages him to buy a plugin. Thanks a lot again.

    Thanks, the concern is not about improving though – its just about its compatible availability as a BP add on as long as WP and BP and php does not announce EOL (end of life). Just this single assurance will be an UNIQUE feature towards increase in sale. Have a great day / night!

    Thanks, @ronia!

    Yes of course, we have no plans to shut down the plugin anyway, especially if clients kept supporting us we won’t even think about giving up 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend ^^
