#3998 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Root component pages do not need to be published

Reported by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: Priority: minor
Severity: normal Version: 1.5.3
Component: Route Parser Keywords: trac-tidy-2018


Right now to assign a page to a root component, it needs to be published. This makes it difficult to test what a page looks like, and impossible to hide a page from users without code intervention. A few small changes should allow users to set root components as any status without much of an issue.

  • Milestone changed from 1.6 to Future Release
  • Priority changed from normal to minor
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

More difficult than it looks. bp_core_set_uri_globals() overrides any existing page output, so we have no basis to know the status of a page when it loads.

  • Component changed from Core to Rewrite Rules
  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 1.8

Will likely be made redundant if rewrite rules come along in 1.8, so moving to that milestone for further review.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
