  • Hi everyone, I’m Duane! As Matt alluded to in his presentation at WordCamp San Francisco, WordPress.org has been working on putting a profiles section up to feature the members of the community and showcase some of their contributions to WordPress. I’ve been helping with this effort, so if you see any glitches or have any feedback, please reply to this posting here.

    There’s still a bit of work to be done, but the first version is live at http://profiles.wordpress.org

    You can check out your own profile by going to http://profiles.wordpress.org/yourname

    You can also navigate there using various header links in WP.org.

    Some of the features in this first version are:

    1) List of plugins developed by each member
    2) List of themes developed by member
    3) List of global WordPress.org activity, including forum postings, code commits, ideas, etc.

    Some of the features still to come are:

    1) Geographical based searches for members
    2) Deeper integration with the WP consultants list
    3) Cookie sharing between WP.org and Profiles.wordpress.org
    4) Additional focus on community involvement of members

    If you see any glitches or have any suggestions, please leave some feedback here.

    Deeper integration with the WP consultants list

    Finally found the WP consultants list option. For those who are still looking, it’s under Edit Profile/Extras.

    If you see any glitches or have any suggestions

    An ability to monitor new replies to forum threads that you’ve contributed to is an absolute must. Otherwise we can’t follow-up on support issues properly.

    +1 for the ability to monitor replies to forum threads.

    Also, I edited my profile to add myself to the consultants list and my gravatar disappeared…don’t see a way to add it back in the new profile. It’s still there in the old profile view…now just trying to remember my password and/or what email I used to create the account 😉

    EDIT: Disregard the gravatar problem…I also changed my email address and didn’t have that one added at the gravatar site…my dumb mistake.

    Right now the consultant’s list is still primed using the manual method. So don’t expect anything to happen when you add that field. But it’s just the first step in getting a new version of the consultant’s list going, hopefully sometime in the near future.

    The “View your profile” should take you to the forum profile page http://wordpress.org/support/profile/xxxxx not http://profiles.wordpress.org/yyyyy.

    It’s that view that’s more useful when tracking down threads you’ve commented on.

    Of course the long way, clicking on your member profile link takes you to http://wordpress.org/support/profile/xxxxx but that isn’t available on every screen.

    The “View your profile” should take you to the forum profile page

    Is that “should” as in “it will”? Or “should” as in “ought to”? Only it’s going straight to http://profiles.wordpress.org/xxx/ right now.

    Oh dear – where are my manners? I should have added that I do like the integrated profile and I can see the sense in bringing everything together. However, logging in a few hours ago to see if there were any replies that needed following up was a bit of a shock.. “Panic” wouldn’t be under-estimating the initial reaction when I realised that I couldn’t highlight new replies.

    I do appreciate the amount of work it must have taken to pull it all together and organise it in a user-friendly fashion.

    Okay…enough fun already…the “view your profile” link really does need to be directed back to the forum profile page until the ability to monitor replies is added to the new page.

    Yep’. What he (they) said. It took me a bit figure out how to find a familiar method of checking for any recent replies. And I did notice double entries in the recent activity section of my new profile page. (pretty darn cool, just the same!) I figured it out okay after a minute, but it seems like kind of a convoluted way of monitoring replies for the moment.

    Change is GOOD!

    The method for tracking replies to threads you’ve participated in should, in my opinion, be separated completely from the profile. The idea is to have a single profile that encompasses all activity across all sites, forums, etc.

    I think each forum should have a really elegant way for keeping up with conversations separate from its profile — this would make an excellent core bbPress improvement actually.

    kperrone,

    I am logged in. Here. lest I couldnt post. :0 Do I need to login again somewhere? I see no edit link anywhere on the page.

    whooami yes you have to login when you goto the profiles page (again). I had to login again anyway.

    As long as there’s a link to the threads (that makes the job easier), then what that link is called, is not of importance, but how about “My Threads”.
