BuddyPress: BuddyPress 3.0.0 “Apollo”

BuddyPress: BuddyPress 3.0.0 “Apollo”

BuddyPress 3.0.0 “Apollo” is now available for immediate download from the WordPress.org plugin repository, or right from your WordPress Dashboard. “Apollo” focuses on various improvement for developers, site builders and site managers.

Say hello to “Nouveau”!

A bold reimagining of our legacy templates, Nouveau is our celebration of 10 years of BuddyPress! Nouveau delivers modern markup with fresh JavaScript-powered templates, and full integration with WordPress’ Customizer, allowing more out-of-the-box control of your BuddyPress content than ever before.

Nouveau provides vertical and horizontal layout options for BuddyPress navigation, and for the component directories, you can choose between a grid layout, and a classic flat list.

Nouveau is fully compatible with WordPress. Existing BuddyPress themes have been written for our legacy template pack, and until they are updated, resolve any compatibility issues by choosing the legacy template pack option in Settings > BuddyPress.

Support for WP-CLI

WP-CLI is the command-line interface for WordPress. You can update plugins, configure multisite installs, and much more, without using a web browser. With this version of BuddyPress, you can now manage your BuddyPress content from WP-CLI.

Control site-wide notices from your dashboard

Site Notices are a feature within the Private Messaging component that allows community managers to share important messages with all members of their community. With Nouveau, the management interface for Site Notices has been removed from the front-end theme templates.

Explore the new management interface at Users > Site Notices.

New profile field type: telephone numbers

A new telephone number field type has been added to the Extended Profiles component, with support for all international number formats. With a modern web browser, your members can use this field type to touch-to-dial a number directly.

BuddyPress: leaner, faster, stronger

With every BuddyPress version, we strive to make performance improvements alongside new features and fixes; this version is no exception. Memory use has been optimised — within active components, we now only load each individual code file when it’s needed, not before.

Most notably, the Legacy Forums component has been removed after 9 years of service. If your site was using Legacy Forums, you need to migrate to the bbPress plugin.

Make mine Apollo’s

In north-east London, Stoke Newington — or Stokey, as it’s affectionately known — is an area awash with newly-opening restaurants, amidst lapping waves of encroaching gentrification. Apollo’s is an authentically Neapolitan pizza place on the High Street, serving fantastically tasty yet uncomplicated pizzas. If you ever find yourself in north London, don’t miss Apollo’s!
