BuddyPress and bbPress Codexes see big updates

7 Comments

Last weekend, when everyone else was taking a break, John James Jacoby took the time out to refresh the BuddyPress Codex along with creating the new bbPress Codex too. Both are running on WordPress.

In the announcement made on the BuddyPress.org blog Jacoby said:

You may not know it but we’ve had a codex here at BuddyPress.org since the early days. It’s mostly made life really difficult and forced everyone into the forums or to other sites for help. Today, I’m really happy to report that the core team has spent some time this weekend to finally refresh the BuddyPress Codex.

No official announcement was posted on the bbPress blog, but it was mentioned on Twitter.

To get yourself started contributing to the codexes, it’s simply a matter of going to the respective /wp-admin/ like you would on your own WordPress site, and start writing and tweaking because users are editors by default. All you need are your WordPress.org login details.

All of the activity is logged using the BuddyPress Activity component, allowing you to show the community what you have contributed. For example:

Currently it’s only active on the BuddyPress Codex, but John James Jacoby informs me it will also be made active on the bbPress Codex within the next few days.

So what do you think? I like them, even more that they’re both run with WordPress. What if the WordPress Codex used the same setup?
