BP Post Status adds three new Post Status options; alongside the usual publishing options, the post publishing box now supports Members Only, Friends Only and Group Post statuses, with Group Post providing a drop-down of available groups to assign the post to. It also adds a group posts tab in each group and provides the option to set a post as the group homepage.
BP Profile Shortcodes Extra maintains the features introduced in the original plugin, it provides shortcodes to display the username, display name, profile url, avatar photo etc. but in addition it provides the ability to display the users cover image and also a collection of cover, avatar and @username that allows a profile header to be created on any page in your site. You can either specify the member to be displayed or the shortcodes will display details of the user that is viewing the page.
BP Template Overloader is an attempt to make the overloading process much more accessible and easier to manage, it provides a simple yet powerful interface which displays all available overload files along with their status, where overload files are detected it provides a viewer that compares the overload with the current BP master file. Template Overloader also provides the ability to migrate to a Theme Independent Overload. It’s also built to help you migrate to the forthcoming BP-Nouveau theme should you want to.
BuddyPress First Letter Avatar is a simple plugin that gives a colour coded avatar based on a letter from the username of the user, for users that have not set an avatar image. It’s an alternative to assigning a Gravatar or similar. It also performs the same task for Groups.
IflyChat is a chat plugin for BuddyPress social networking sites, it creates a close approximation to the chat used on the Ning Social platform which features “Chat on any page” as a feature, which allows users to browse around the site without having to leave the chat conversation.
One of the issues with BuddyPress is that notifications are not “Live”, in other words, in order to see if you have any notifications, you need to refresh your web page, this detracts from the dynamism of the site. Eonet Live Notifications fixes this by introducing a live notification in the form of a pop-up that shows up in the bottom right corner of the page, informing you that you have a new notification and providing a click link to view that item.
Eonet Frontend Publisher is a new front end publishing plugin that allows site users to edit and create various types of documents at the front end of the site, it’s intended to make post creation for site users quick and simple.
