Settings enhancement thoughts for 1.3

Reported by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: major
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


For 1.3 I'd like to flesh out bp-settings along with bp-xprofile; they have such similar qualities that doing both side-by-side or at least having two teams tightly in sync with each other, would be a good idea.

I would personally like to see settings be more than just for users. If bp-settings has an API behind it, then anything can tap into it, similar to the way the activity stream does for users and groups. I think that every component (groups, activity, users, blogs, forums) has or could have settings, as well as blogs and even the entire BuddyPress installation.

A BuddyPress specific page (password protected or role based access control) would be a nice way to avoid going into the depths of wp-admin for anything BuddyPress related.

  • Component set to Core
  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to Future Release

Switching to future release as there is unlikely to be time for this in 1.3, plus we need to review exactly what this ticket is proposing.

I'm in favor of something like this; we'd also need to make sure current things like the edit avatar screen are properly moved over to this Settings API.

FWIW, I've been hacking together a universal settings template for a theme I'm working on (merging the current settings pages + profile subnav items), however the permalinks are all different ;)

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 1.5
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Severity set to normal
  • Status changed from new to closed

Our current settings component is exactly this, using BuddyPress existing API's for extending existing components. Closing as fixed and moving into the 1.5 milestone when Settings was properly introduced.
