    Who is "behind" P2 now?

    I have been setting up P2 WordPress blogs for a few friends. I have found myself repeating some basic tweaks. While doing this, I thought that I would like to contribute to developing the P2 theme further.

    Noel seems to be the man behind it.

    Unfortunately, Noel has disappeared a long time ago, I wish someone else would pick up the project where he left it.

    Isn't Noel an automattic employe?


    His webpage seems alive at least.

    Noel is actively developing the theme -- I'll send him a link to this thread.

    I do handle a majority of P2 development, but code is contributed by many people. Please feel free to send any diffs to noel at automattic dot com.

    The SVN repo is here: http://svn.automattic.com/wpcom-themes/p2/

    Hi Noel.
    I've been a bit quiet on the P2 front lately.

    The main issue I have currently is P2 and IntenseDebate.
    I like the P2 theme and I like the IntenseDebate plugin.
    They do work together but there's a few quirks.

    I'll look into it and see if I can contribute.

    Hi Noel,

    is there any chance that P2-theme will be integrated into BuddyPress ?
    Like having P2-theme for each user-Blog ?

    Thanks !

    That would be sweet, huh?

    I'm working vigourously over at my own blog: http://noel.io to separate P2 more and more. To allow child themes to be created more easily and from there BuddyPress integration of certain pieces.

    @ Erich: P2 integrated in Buddypress is very interesting and something that I need.

    Also, it would be great if P2 could look a little more normal in IE 6.0. 33% of my users use it and it looks a bit strange for them. Perhaps it's not possible to fix, perhaps it is.

    @ Noel: P2 as some kind of plugin instead of theme would be fantastic. Especially if integrateable with Buddypress. :)

    Just my 2 cent.

    this is indeed great news to hear that you are developing P2 further and also working to integrate P2 into BuddyPress !

    The issue I currently see (at least for my specific user-group which is at the age of 50 and older) with BuddyPress is about using the Dashboard-interface in order to make a blog-post.
    My users will not be able to understand the Dashboard and posting a message into their own blog - it´s just too complicated for them.

    Is there a chance that you develop your P2-theme in a way, so that User-Blogs can be administrated and Blog-posts can be made by the user in a simple way ? So that the user will NEVER have to enter the Dashboard-interface ?

    Always go by KISS - Keep it Simple and Stupid !

    Thanks again,
