It simple displays a selectbox with more than 25 European languages. When a user selects a language a new window in http://translate.google.com/ opens.
Since I manage a very large BP community, I was in a need of a plugin which reduces the data recorded in the bp_activity table, which stores all the Buddypress activity. A plugin that would “block” an activity record from being saved to the stream/database. Activities like user joining groups, friendships and profile updates.
So, based on the ideas and footsteps of this plugin creators I made an updated version for Buddypress 2.x. :-), which uses the Settings API of wordpress and adds a “Buddypress Block Activity Stream Types” section into Buddypress Settings admin page.
Some time ago I tested the ‘BP Groups Suggest Widget’ (http://buddydev.com/plugins/bp-group-suggest/) from Brajesh Singh, which gave me the idea to extend it, since I needed the groups suggestion to also take into account more user data.
So the result, was BP Groups Suggestions plugin.
The plugin adds “Suggested groups” functionality into Buddypress groups.
By default, it uses the user’s friends’s groups in order to suggest groups of the login user, but this can be extended throught available filters.
It adds a “Suggested group” tab into the Groups Directory page, and also a widget “Suggested groups” is available.
The login user can hide groups from suggestion list, by pressing the “Remove group”, either through the widget, the “Suggested groups” tab or by the group’s homepage. Also the login user can reset the hidden suggestion list. The plugin uses various ‘filters’ so a developer can extend it, for example to include admins…
In general, the Buddypress Hashtags LS plugin, “mimics” the Twitter hashtag behaviour, allowed the users to use # to tag a topic into there activity update and into their blog’s post (for multisite installations).
it supports unicode ex. Greek language
it provides a “Popular terms” widget.
it provides a shortcode [ls_bp_hashtags] which accept same arguments as wp_generate_tag_cloud() function.
in multisite installation it also includes the tags and categories of each post
in multisite installation, if a hashtag is inside the post content it also has link to the related activity.
it doesn’t alter the activity contents instead all hashtags are stored in a new db table in order to make lighter queries in activity table
I have tested it with BuddyPress 2. The base functionality seems OK.
It would be great if someone try it or even contribute to it.
