#5825 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Improve routine for automatically recording existing blogs on existing BP installations

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Blogs Keywords: trac-tidy-2018


If you have a BuddyPress installation where the Blogs component is not active, and then you activate it, you are left with empty Blogs component database tables. In the halcyon days of BP 1.5, we introduced a routine to check certain config issues - bp_core_activation_notice() - and part of this routine is to check for the situation where Blogs has just been activated, and to run bp_blogs_record_existing_blogs().

This is not ideal. It requires an extra database call on each admin pageload. And bp_blogs_record_existing_blogs() can be very resource-intensive on large Multisite networks. We should improve this function as well as the way it's invoked.

Related: r8592 (where this part of the routine was removed), #5820 (noting that the removal of this part of the routine was causing problems), r8946 (where it was reestablished for BP 2.1)

In 8946:

Reintroduce bp_blogs_record_existing_blogs() to bp_core_activation_notice()

It was originally removed in r8592 because it was taxing to resources, but

Fixes #5820. See #5825

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.
