#3388 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow @mentions to be disabled

Reported by: cnorris23 Owned by: boonebgorges
Milestone: 1.8 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5
Component: Activity Keywords: has-patch needs-refresh
Cc: vpundir@…


BuddyPress No Mentions by r-a-y handles this well, but with over 2,000 downloads in less than a year it seems like a good candidate for core adoption. I've included two patches, one with an option added to the BP settings page, the other is a filter only scenario. I've added the bp_activity_do_mentions() function to bp-activity-filters.php because bp-activity-functions.php wasn't being loaded early enough, and I wasn't sure about changing load order.

  • Keywords dev-feedback added

I like the idea of including something like this. Don't think we need an admin option, personally, so I would go with the first option. Only question is milestone - do we squeeze into 1.3? Other core devs chime in?

#2 @cnorris23

I agree that the filter would be better, but wanted to cover my bases. Also, I'm updating the filter only patch. It was defaulting to mentions disabled.

  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

I don't mind a filter in core, but I personally think that DTheme should showcase all of BuddyPress' best features, and I think @messaging is one of them (= no conditional changes in DTheme). This is an enhancement not a defect, and now we are in beta, it should go to a future release.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

I personally think that DTheme should showcase all of BuddyPress' best features, and I think @messaging is one of them

Fair enough. This is a good argument for not having the conditional in bp-default.

Moving to Future Release, which should get a good going-through after the 1.5 release.

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 1.7

Let's reconsider as we build the theme compat stuff; if nothing else, we can get a filter in.

Admin option would be great!

Personally, as a site-owner (as opposed to developer), I find filter-only features hard to reconcile feels like the heavy lifting has already been done in the back-end but the last mile hasn't been built rendering the feature useless to most users...

you can turn this off by adding a code snippet or using bp extended settings plugin.

  • Milestone changed from 1.7 to 1.8

Looks like 3388.002.diff​ went stale. Let's get a refresh in for 1.8?

#9 @boonebgorges

  • Keywords needs-refresh added; dev-feedback removed

I think cnorris23's patches are good, but need refreshing to be included in 1.8. (No whitespace fixes, please.)

#10 @thebrandonallen

Patch refresh from the artist formally know as cnorris23. I was unsure which patch I was supposed to refresh, so I just picked the most recent one, 3388.003.diff, the patch without the admin option. I can add the admin option back in if desired. I also did not patch bp-legacy, as I wasn't sure about protocol there. There are only 2-3 spots that need work, so adding that in won't be a problem either.

#11 @sooskriszta

Good stuff.

+1 for admin option.

#12 @boonebgorges

Thanks for the refresh thebrandonallen! Looks very close to being ready. A couple thoughts:

  • Looks like you're missing a ! in the bp-activity-template.php part of 3388.004.patch
  • Re bp-default and bp-legacy. We definitely want to patch bp-legacy. I'm not totally sure what our policy on bp-default is at this point. I guess let's go ahead and leave the fix in there too, and maybe after 1.8 we can talk as a team about a more formal feature freeze on bp-default.
