BP Directory Views turns the traditional BuddyPress Members and Groups directory lists into a smooth grid view. It works with both the Legacy and Nouveau BP Themes and works to maintain a uniform grid – with no untidy gaps in the grid!

This is a plugin aimed at BP users that do not use a theme specifically built for BP, for those that have the basic list provided by BP and want to make this look a lot more professional. It’s also aimed at those of you who know how to use CSS to turn this into a grid but find the results disappointing in that this technique fails to provide a uniform grid due to the squares being of inconsistent length.

What’s required is some nifty JavaScript that makes sure the grid squares are uniform that works with either Legacy or Nouveau themes – That’s where BP Directory Views comes in.

This is a pretty simple plugin that extends the work done by Hugo – hnla with his Style Modules work. This original code has been extended so that it resizes the grid tiles to uniform length every time the directory view changes.

So if you are relying on simple CSS to delivery your grid or maybe you still have the list view give it a try! There’s no settings to change though I’m sure these will come with user take-up.
