BuddyPress Codex Revamped

John James Jacoby of BuddyPress.org has announced that the BuddyPress Codex has received a much needed refresh. Here is the kicker, the BuddyPress Codex is powered by a WordPress installation where all registered users are an editor. Users can share information as in a traditional wiki but everything is housed on individual pages. Interestingly enough, this very idea was proposed a couple of times during the past few years for the WordPress Codex but it never gained much traction.

Head on over to the NEW BuddyPress Codex and check it out. It will be interesting to see how this approach scales.

  1. There used to be a bug/feature where WordPress would pretty much fail as soon as you exceeded a number of pages…I remember using WordPress a few years ago for a site that had 750 pages and it was essentially unusable.

    Brian, that was the permalink rewrite rule bug, and it’s been addressed in 3.3. No worries now.

    With all of the hoopla surrounding BuddyPress early on, and what appeared to be a big need for social community plugins, and that BuddyPress maintains “extensibility”, I wonder why BuddyPress has evolved so little and so few have taken up the cause to make it more extensible. Seems revamping the codex would be on the bottom of the to-do list, not the top.
