Buddypress

By any chance are you going to allow integration with buddy press because the groups they have would be awesome with this forum. 🙂 also I love how buddypress is set up with permissions as well..

 

Thanks

Hello @karmarpgs

I am currently working on a buddypress-integration - but not for the groups-feature because Asgaros Forum has its own usergroup-functionality which is deeply-integrated into the forum-logic.

For buddypress-integration I plan to add:

  • show users forum-activity in buddypress-profile
  • replace forum-profile with buddypress-profile
  • include forum-activity in the buddypress activity-feed
  • use buddypress-notifications for new topics/posts and post-replies
If you want to support the development of Asgaros Forum, you can leave a good review or donate. Thank you very much!

This is great! I had just jumped on the forum to see if there were any integrations with BuddyPress.

Hello @sara

Yes, work on this is still going on but I have to finish the approval-functionality first which will come in version 1.13. This and other related code-changes are necessary for BuddyPress-integration and I hope that I can make it available soon - but I cant promise that it will be before Christmas.

Hi,

Here are a few suggestions re BuddyPress Group integration

I needed general access to some specific fora for all groups, and a few (5) specific (hidden) groups to also have a Forum. BBPress didn't do it for me. so, using Asgaros

I created 5 User Groups representing my main secret groups.

In Forum Structure I then created 5 Categories, one for each of the above. I set these to Logged in Users only, and selected the relevant user Group for each one. You will need to edit your users to provide access to to relevant User Groups. Any Fora you create under these Categories in Asgaros will effectively be view limited to those selected users. And anyone not in those groups will not see them on the General Forum page.

In BuddyPress, I created equivalent (Hidden) Groups, not seen by any except invited members.  If you go to the Groups page, you can select the 'Manage' tab. You can then edit the Group Description and include linked text like this

"<a href="/discuss/forum/documents/">Agency Documents Forum</a>" providing a link to your specific fora. Anyone who isn't in the Asgaros group won't see it.

For other groups (hidden or otherwise), you can add a link to specific (non exclusive) fora, so these will become the fora of that BuddyPress group. Those fora will still appear in the general fora page. But its pretty close.

See attached file for what it looks like on the Group page.

Please correct me if Ive got any of this wrong. Hope this helps 🙂

hi @asgaros

these features are really nice. Waiting Impatiently 🙂

I wish success to you 😉

in addition, can a notification alert occur when the message is quoted? 🙂

Usually users do not notice messages that are quoted. some messages can remain far behind. for example, the user sending the original message can log in after 3-5 days. In this case, the message written 3 days ago may not notice.

My English is not very good. I hope you understand me 🙂

Hello @glen

I cant promise if I can make it work with quotes because this will require a lot of parsing - especially when there are nested and/or multiple quotes inside a post.

As an alternative you can also use the mentioning functionality like in this post so the user you refer to gets a notification about your post.

I am a new user of your forum plugin and just wanted to say thanks, and I too will be very happy to integrate it with buddypress. I evaluated a lot of software and found yours to be one of the best, and with all the features needed for free.

Hi Thomas

The notification alert does not work in my forum. users are not going any warning. 🙁

so I thought quote notifications would be nice. I really appreciate you in your work. Thank you very much for preparing such a system for us.
