Update BP Hello Screen / Changelog for 14.0.0

Reported by: imath's profile imath Owned by: imath's profile imath
Milestone: 14.0.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch


We need to update the content for it, but testing BuddyPress within WP Playground makes me think we should also search why we are redirecting to the WP Admin home instead of our BP Components settings page.

I believe being directly inside this part of BuddyPress after a fresh install would save some time to the Admin User to set the first BP Settings (like component activation...).

  • Looking at [11999] I don't think there's a specific reason about why redirecting to the dashboard page instead of the BP Components one. I just believe it's easier as we don't need to check whether BuddyPress is network installed or not to build the query args.

Our Main settings page is a submenu of 'settings.php' in Network admin while it's a submenu of 'options-general.php' in regular WordPress sites.

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed
  • Move the Hello Modal into the BP Components Admin screen: this should be easier for new installs to directly see where Admins can set their BuddyPress options / URLs..
  • Update the Hello Modal "What's new text" to inform about 14.0.0 changelog.
