BuddyPress gets experimental with the new BP Labs plugin

1 Comment

In the spirit of the experimental nature of things like Gmail Labs and WordPress’ own UI Labs plugin, Paul Gibbs has released the BP Labs plugin to test out Gibbs’ own features before they (potentially) hit core.

This first version of the plugin includes “@ mention” autosuggestions (completing usernames as you type them) and a quick admin for the group directory, with more to come. Gibbs is a core dev for BuddyPress but was clear that the feature experiments in BuddyPress Labs are his own.

The plugin can be downloaded from the WordPress plugin directory, but will (obviously) require BuddyPress to function. You can receive support for the plugin and learn more on BuddyPress.org.
