#2300 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

'friends_install' check is breaking a lot of stuff on the trunk

Severity: Version:
Component: Friends Keywords: friends_install, needs-feedback


Please feel free to close this ticket if it's a work-in-progress. I didn't find any info when I searched.

I noticed that a bunch of friend-related stuff in trunk is not working, due to the fact that the function friends_install() has been taken out of bp-friends.php. There are a number of places that use if ( function_exists( 'friends_install' ) ) to check for the existence of the friends component:

  • displaying the proper friendship request button (request pending/add friend/cancel friendship/etc) on member lists
  • displaying the Send Invites link on group pages
  • displaying a list of friends to invite to a group

None of these are working on trunk (rev 2912).

Maybe this is part of the new installation procedure Andy's working on? If so, and if the function friends_install is no longer going to be part of the picture, then the friend component check will have to be changed.

A lot of function_exists checks will be replaced by an internal function to handle the verification that BuddyPress components are on/off. MrMaz has already started handling some of these issues in the trunk and there are surely more fixes to follow.

Thanks for the heads up Boone!

Is this new function going to be in 1.2.4 or 1.3?

It's in trunk as of [2919] by Andy.

  • Milestone changed from 1.2.4 to 1.3

It will be in 1.3.

1.2.4 will be a very minimal bug fix release.

Andy's revisions were wiped out on [2925]. Is this right?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

friends_install is no longer in trunk, so closing this as fixed. See also #2718.
