    Hey imath,
    Great plugin. I am having a issue when a new place is created it say the user must be logged which I am and that the comments are closed. I looked around I see this comments_open() and I found the function in comments.php but I figured it might be a bad move to modify that function in the core. Is it just a setting I am missing. Thanks for the awesome plugin.

    Hi jddeisel,

    I think the reason is you must have the option “Allow people to post comments on new articles” unchecked in your discussion settings.

    Ok Just posted an upgrade of the plugin (version 1.2) If you want to keep your post uncommentable by leaving unchecked the option “”Allow people to post comments on new articles”, you can go in /bp-checkins/includes/bp-checkins-filters.php – line 270 and uncomment the function bp_checkins_force_comment_status().

    I think i’ll add some settings in BP Checkins to avoid this manipulation later.

    Thanks for your interest about this plugin.

    Hi imath,
    I tried the check button but it did not work. What I did to get it work was have comments_open alway return TRUE. It works it is a bit of hack but, hey :). I just looked at /bp-checkins/includes/bp-checkins-filters.php and there is no line 270 is that the only thing in 1.2, because I have been heavily modifying the plugin and I don’t want to mess with my changes. Oh a quick question a bit off the topic but do you know any api that if you put in a exact address returns the name of the business if one exists. Google places with give me what is around in a radius but I was wondering if there was something that if you knew the exact address it would return the one business that was at that address. I want to thank you again for clean code that was very easy to understand and taught me a lot.

    I’ve added it to version 1.2 :

    I have no idea, what about foursquare ?

    You’re welcome 😉

    Sorry imath I had one more question. Right now check-ins only show up on your own feed how would I go about having them show up in everyone’s feed.
