Testing New Plugin – BuddyPress Search

author image Slava Abakumov



Although I have a lot of things to do for BuddyPress Groups Extras plugin, I can’t stop my imagination from working on new plugins. I have 8 plugin ideas, from small to huge, and starting to implement them one by one.

For now let me introduce you the very basic version of my upcoming BuddyPress Search plugin (generally like a concept). Below is the screenshot.


Right now you can see (and sort) all searches (related to BuddyPress) that were done by your members across the network: looking for groups, members and forum topics. In future you will be able to filter, block, analyze and much more with all that data. I plan to implement lots of things that will improve search experience as well.

So if you are interested – show me you interest 🙂 I need a network to grab data and and make some stat magic with it. Ideally your network should have several hundreds of active users per day, that write something and communicate with each other. Can you help me make this plugin better?

  4. […] and currently working on several things at once. The most important is BuddyPress Search (announced here) that is almost ready for the first public release. This version won’t have much, but […]
