Hi There wonderful developers.

We have been working on this online community for over a few years now. The long term goal is to have our own space on the web, don’t rely on other networks like Facebook or Twitter etc. People like you from all over the world are constantly improving it and it gets better every time.
Have a look on our Github to help out to solve open issues.🤘

Others. Feel free to use this topic to share feedback or suggestions to upgrade this online kamp.

And meanwhile we use this topic to show the latest improvements we’ve added.

Together we can make it awesome!

After many requests we’ve added a subscribe functionality. You can subscribe to certain forums and get a mail notification when someone posts a new topic. Or subscribe to a topic and you get a mail notification when someone replies. Much easier to keep track of activity!

We’ve merged all our news updates together on the main page (news) Before we had community news separated from our own news, but now you can access it all in one place and filter accordingly

We added a dashboard page where you can have an overview of all the latest activity within the community. You can filter this long thread, see the newest image uploads, latest donations, latest replies etc.
Basically all our member updates in 1 place! 📰

Hi Dave, I still have not figured out how to use filters. Sometimes I want to see posts in chronological order ,from last to first ,and other times from first to last. Also tried to filter out by country. It was beneficial not being able to filter because I got to scan Hundreds of posts, but wow,time consuming. Any tips on getting me up to speed?

They are mainly used to filter content @brentzdentz. They always go from new to old. But you can choose whether to see only, Precious Plastic, Storyhopper, Phonebloks news etc.

Added some CSS changes for the comments sections on the news-posts. Removed clutter and more comments are shown. Still want to include the country flag for each member though. But its beyond my coding skills, anyone good with that?

Hey, I don’t really know if this is the right forum to submit this problem, but lately every time when I want to insert a “link” and add a URL, the whole message won’t submit because it is been seen as spam. Every time this message shows up: *** Forbidden. Message seems to be spam. ***

Is it not meant for specific URL’s and only for topic URL’s or is it an error?

But indeed we installed quite some harsh spam filters a while back, too many Chinese spam topics 💩 let me look into it

Hey @davehakkens,

I’ve made an easier setup process for the theme activation for the first time. I also updated the ReadMe file as it took me a lot of research and debugging to get the theme up and running on the first time.

I still have some issues to get the forum part working but it is already a good start.

In other words i have added a required plugin on theme activation that suggest you plugins to install on theme activation (screenshot 1)

And added to install process on the readme the 2 Components needed in BuddyPress Settings for the theme page to show up without bugs (screenshot 2)

I’ve made a branch ‘requiered-plugin’ but the thing is that i can not send my pull request I get an error “You may not have permission to access davehakkens” any chance you could add me the the repo permission ??

your invited @malor. I think these 2 annoying issues might have to do something with javascript portrait images and scroll top top lightbox

Is it normal that the bazar does not let you sign in with the forum-login? You need to create a second identity??

@sonik @basman unfortunately yes. We’re using an external platform for the bazar. Quick way to just to see if it even makes sense to have a bazar. Developing it ourselves takes quite some resources but is probably the next logical step. In this way we can also link it with our community accounts.

@malor i’ve already started quite a bit on the new profile pages. Install the 2.3 theme branch and you will see. Still some work to do though 🙂

Hi!
About bazar site.
Could you please add button to attach picture in conversation?
Right now I use google drive to share pictures (photo of parcels, track numbers etc), but it is not convenient.

Another problem that dates on bazar site in such format: 1 month ago, 3 days ago, etc.
But there is no specific date. And I already had to check the date manually by finding email notofication in my gmail, about that message from bazar chat.
It will be great if you duplicate date in dd/mm/yy format also.

Tnx.

@copypastestd the bazar currently runs on an external platform. Mainly because we could quickly set it up quickly and try out if people even use is. So very limited options to customize at the moment. That said, people use it and we’re exploring option to develop our own 🙂

Hi guys,

I just registered on the site and tried to log in before verifying my email address. There was no visual feedback (e.g. please verify your email first) on the login page, but I did see the login failed key-value in the URL.

IMO it’s important to make sure there is at least a seamless experience for the users first few interactions with the site. It helps build credibility. Therefore I would suggest making this a priority fix.
