New BuddyPress plugin: Enhanced BuddyPress Widgets

BuddyPress comes with several WordPress widgets, among which are the Groups and Members widgets that you see on the CUNY Academic Commons home page. This plugin makes those widgets a little more customizable, allowing users to specify which of the three tabs (Newest, Active, or Popular) they’d like to be each widget’s default view.

If you’ve got a blog on the CUNY Academic Commons, you can start using this feature right away. Just look in Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets. Be sure to select the Groups/Members widgets whose descriptions say “Enhanced”.

You can download the plugin for use on your own installation of WPMU/BP here: enhanced-buddypress-widgets. It’s also available from the WordPress plugin database: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/enhanced-buddypress-widgets/.

    Hi Cichlid – if you’re running BP 1.2 or greater, make sure that you use the latest version (0.2) of the plugin from the repository.

    you guys ever thought about 1) recreating the sitewide activity widget and 2) a recent forums topic widget?

  6. Profile photo of Boone Gorges Boone Gorges says

    Kyle – have definitely thought of (1). I miss that widget.

    (2) is an interesting idea too. Both should be pretty easy to do. Maybe someday soon.
