#5905 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Show buttons to logged-out users

Component: Core Keywords: trac-tidy-2018



I'd like you to evaluate a suggestion about logged out users.

Even if I can do this on my own theme, I'd like to suggest this for the default BuddyPress Theme.

The current layout provide reply buttons, on activity pages, only if the user is logged in.

In my opinion could be better display them also for logged out users, redirecting them to the login page before to let them post the new comment.

Infact the layout, without buttons, looks skinny, and the presence of that buttons could also push unregistered users to register on the site.

  • Summary changed from A suggestion about logged out users to Show buttons to logged-out users

Good idea. However, some might not like this, so we'd need a toggle if this is implemented.

Going to put this in the Future Release milestone for now, so someone can take this on if they are interested at a later date.

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.
