What we need for the site

Hi everybody.

Okay since this is just a test site so far we need to test a little bit of everything.

I just got a decent theme that we can more easily build off of and have a decent idea for the look of the theme.



That above is the basic idea but of course original images since I took these from various sources also based it off of these two and

Also if anyone can help me look for a decent flickr plugin that will work well with buddypress (been looking myself but haven’t found anything yet) please let me know.

Also this will be the thread to add your own ideas. I will let people know at the main site that I am remaking the site and what they’d like to see changed but want to get your input first, so please input away :3

Thanks for helping me with this :3

Spread the love

    I just thought of something else too. I thought I had a decent way of switching from one alt to another but the “switch to” button allowed me at least to switch to anyone which is not something I wanted. If anyone can help me find a way to have multiple alts under one account that would be great too.

    Also I think we should set up a New Babbage Flickr account that everyone can submit too… just not sure how yet.

    New Babbage has a flickr group, though I’m not sure who administers it. Flickr accounts themselves can only be posted to by a single user/email account, if I’m not mistaken. Pro accounts maybe?

    So as you can see trying to make this as similar as the old site as possible. It’s coming along okayish but it seems I need to make my own widgets for combined posts, pages, forums, replies and comments, and probably links to image posts.

    Which I should add I don’t know what we are going to do about media. I would rather them not be posted on the site and posted to flickr instead but not sure how to post from wordpress to flickr unless we get our own flickr account but even that maybe breaking the rules as the images are supposed to belong to the poster and not a group. Maybe if there is a way we can cross login or something. Also there are some people who don’t have or rally want a flickr account that we may need to contend with.

    What’s your thought on media?

    So I need to get some form of spam filterer. The site is not even technically open and already getting spammers adding themselves.

    I was looking at the Dashboard and apparently it doesn’t show options for accessing the forums unless you are admin or higher. You can still get there on the front page but I think it’s silly. I have gone through the User Role Editor to no avail (may need to look into something similar yet different… basically easier to understand). Also looking to see if we can either bypass the dashboard for people who are not admin, make it fit into the theme of the site, or bring dashboard functionality to the front page, possibly a couple of those in conjunction. Will keep you posted on more developments. Fox Out.

      … Also just noted that my response wasn’t put at the top of the current Activity Feed… good thing that’s what I am working on now.
