    BuddyPress Moderation & Album – Week #12 

    Final week, I was a bit nervous because the week before was not really productive as I said a week ago, but this week I did a huge amount of work and things seem to be in place.

    I’m doing also lot of documentation these days, features should be ok.

    A testable version of bp-album with gsoc features is in the wild, it’s still not stable but the part I’ve added as gsoc proj is almost good, some other parts need fixes/rewriting. Finally near to a stable release.

    Instead bp-moderation is pretty much ready for being released, first testers have appreciated it and I just finished writing the documentation on integration with other content types. Still some doc and checking and I’ll release it.

    Good luck everyone!

    BuddyPress Album – Week #11 

    This week has not been productive as the last one, mainly because the gasoline quest (due to a truck drivers strike it was almost impossible to find some gas here in Crete), two power outages and some network problems.

    I still managed to do something: finished the set of oEmbed media modules and started the local audio one.

    I found useful getid3 for gathering audio info and as it also detect content types of a good range of media files I’m integrating it with the content type detection class for when no other detection method are available (preferred ones are php fileinfo extension and the shell ‘file’ utility).

    I plan to prepare a testable bp-album version tomorrow or at most Saturday, (un)luckily I’ll be back in Italy by 36 hours so this weekend I can focus on finishing my gsoc projs.

    BuddyPress Album – Week #10 

    This week has been pretty productive, although I’m currently in Greece with my friends :D.

    I’ve rewritten lot of the code of the multimedia part of bp-album to make it tidier and cleaner and I merged it with the not-gsoc-related features from other repo.

    As now the development repo of bp-album is on google code (see this post), I’m working there for the merge and other changes, but I always copy it to gsoc svn when there’s some important change related to gsoc.

    Next week I’ll work on both bp-album and bp-moderation, adding missing features, fixing known bugs and writing documentation.

    BuddyPress Album – Week #8 

    Sorry for the late update this week.

    Midterm is passed and I managed to get multimedia in bp-album working in time, the ‘media module’ system is in place and right now I wrote modules for pics and oEmbed videos, but I’m going to write other modules.

    I’m probably not going to code last days of this week because I’m studying for an exam that I’m going to take on monday, the last one for this summer, probably I’ll not pass it anyway but it deserve a try 🙂

    After it I’m going to fix bp-moderation bugs and work on bp-album ( merge the progresses on gsoc repo with progress from other repos ).

    I have a bunch of ideas for bp-moderation and I’ll not be able to do all them in gsoc period, so in a few days I’ll probably ask here and/or on bp.org forums some feedback on the ones I should prioritize.

    BuddyPress Album – Week #7 

    This week I was going to miss my posting day, I hadn’t realized it is already Thursday until I got the notification of scribu’s new post and I thought I usually write on the same day of him 🙂

    Last week I worked a lot and I think I managed to do the ‘hard’ work of the bp-album part: code refactoring, db changes, new handlers for media upload and adding by url (both oEmbed and remote media), validation with media type checking, media modules system ( each module is a class that must implement the media module interface and can implement other interfaces depending on its features and its level of integration with bp-album).

    But all the ‘new’ code is still unconnected to the actual plugin frontend, so I still have nothing to show on this, but I should (actually I have to because there are only few days until midterm) have it working in next days 🙂

    BuddyPress Album – Week #6 

    After announcing that bp-moderation is ready to test in its dedicated group on buddypress.org, first days of this week have gone getting feedback for it and fixing some of the reported bugs.

    Then I travelled to the south of Italy and I’ll work from here for sometime…although 3G connection isn’t the best and I’m missing the extended screen, I find my temporary workspace pretty nice.

    About actual progresses on bp-album, I had been studying the current plugin structure and best way to implement multimedia support, did a lot of sketches (I found the notebook that was in the GSOC welcome package really useful for this) and I’ll start writing/committing real code tomorrow.

    Francesco Laffi – Introduction 


    I’m Francesco Laffi, 20 years old. I study industrial engineering at Alma Mater Studiorum, in Bologna, Italy (CEST – UTC+2).

    I’ll be working on two BuddyPress plugins, BP Album and BP Moderation.

    BuddyPress Album already exists, is a photo album component for BP. I’m going to extend it to support every kind of media file and upload from remote locations. Remote url could be either a media file or an oEmbed enabled page.

    BuddyPress Moderation is a new plugin that aims to help admins of BP communities to moderate inappropriate contents. It adds ‘report this’ links to user-generated content so members can easily flag a content as inappropriate. Admins can then see reported contents in the backend pages and take action on them.

    I’ll first work on the moderation component and then on the album enhancements, I’ll post here weekly updates on Thursday.

    You can read more about my proj here: https://gsoc2010.wordpress.com/francesco-laffi-bp-media-moderation/. The original proj description is on my blog.

    My blog is http://flweb.it and I’m @francescolaffi on twitter. Tomorrow and Saturday I’ll be at the WordCamp Milan, if you live in Italy I hope to see you there!

    See you next week!
