Activity Stream Updates
March 1, 2010 in Uncategorized
We recently upgraded our site to use BuddyPress 1.2 (BuddyPress is an open source plugin for WordPress sites that enables various social networking features). This new version puts a big emphasis on the activity stream, and has allowed us to greatly improve the Biblefox Bible page.
The old Bible page had the scriptures, followed by a list of blog posts about that scripture, followed by a note taking mechanism. The new Bible page is much more streamlined: it simply displays the scripture followed by a stream of activities about that scripture. Activities can include blog posts, blog comments, status updates, group updates, and forum posts, and everything is all in one easy to use stream. Check out our new Bible page now!
We also made various other improvements around the site and enabled groups and forums. You can create a group for any purpose (for instance, create a group for your church, ministry, or Bible study), make it public or private, and decide whether you want the group to have a discussion forum.
