Support post formats in BP-Default

Description

I searched the forum & trac and only saw it briefly discussed:
http://buddypress.org/community/groups/creating-extending/forum/topic/post-formats-in-wp-3-1-bp-1-2-8/

With post formats now being a core WordPress feature, I think the default BuddyPress theme ought to support them.

Some existing BP themes already support post formats, e.g. 'Canvas BuddyPress' by WooThemes and 'Visual' by DevPress. Consider contacting them for patches.

(there was no '1.5.1' available in the version list)

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 1.6

Thanks for the suggestion.

'Version' is the version on which you're experiencing the problem. 'Milestone' is the version by which we hope to fix the issue. Only core devs have access to Milestone.

Putting in 1.6, with the understanding that we'll punt if we don't get patches.

I think the way twenty-eleven does custom post formats may be good for this. It would involve us going along a content-postformattype.php route changing the calls to be something like this:

	while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
		get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() );

However, it means galleries, images and other post types get a chance to be styled beyond the normal format. Also for things like aside / chat you can really make them fit better styling wise.

I think not just doing the boring post indication and doing this also would really be the best route. If agreed I am happy to work on a patch for this as done myself on my themes.

I haven't seen any love for this ticket, so it's likely that it'll get punted (unless we get some really stellar patches really soon!)

Interested in giving this some love as well :-)
However, given that plans are on for porting bbPress template parts method to BuddyPress wouldn't this be immaterial by BP 1.7 or is it still worth the exercise?

  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Are we agreed that we're not doing significant further dev to bp-default (at least not as shipped with BP)? Post formats will be handled by the WP theme when using theme compat.
