Show Member's groups on Profile tab

Reported by: sooskriszta's profile sooskriszta Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5.4
Component: Appearance - Template Pack Keywords:

Site admin should be able to check a box to structure UI so that when viewing a Member, her Groups are displayed on the Profile itself, instead of a separate tab.

This is an enhancement request, not a bug. It is also very closely tied together into the theme. We don't want to change BP-Default to work like this, because of concerns with backwards compatibility and style changes; it'd be a pretty significant difference. It could be implemented into a custom theme.

We are planning major changes to how BuddyPress themes are done in the next 1.7 version of BuddyPress. If we decide to build a new theme for 1.7, we will keep this in mind (it is possible that BuddyPress may not ship with a bundled theme).

Did I mark it as a bug? My bad.

Also, I meant it as a feature for the bundled theme (the set of templates) as opposed to for BP Default.

I understand that work for 1.7 is in full swing. Perhaps time to reconsider?

In fact, in the new theme, it might be worth considering providing option to:

  • Have sections as tabs (status quo)
  • Have a long profile page with everything (except streams) on it (drag and drop to select what goes before and what goes after)
  • Convert all sections into widgets. Then folks can place how and where they want, including placing some BuddyPress streams into their WordPress sidebars.

  • Component changed from Theme to Template Pack

Most Social networks from Facebook to Orkut to LinkedIn do it this way.

  • Milestone set to Future Release

I'm with DJPaul that this is mainly a theme issue, but I'll move to Future Release in case someone wants to provide a patch.

I feel this is down to the theme choice as you can do this in a BuddyPress theme. I'm not sold on core having this rolled into it myself as feel it's more down to the site than something should always be on.

I see your point.

In the real world, though, there is no such thing as a BuddyPress theme (ok, I exaggerate...there are 3-4..but : 1. that's not nearly enough, 2. with universal compatibility templates being bundled into BuddyPress, BP-specific themes will reduce).

Key options should be built into Admin UI and bundled templates.
