BuddyPress Featured Members Plugin Widget Re-Released
By Jeff Sayre
After dragging my feet for too long, I’ve finally upgraded and updated my old Featured Members Widget to work with WP/MU 2.9.2 and BuddyPress 1.2.3. The code has been entirely rewritten using the WordPress Plugin API.
This re-released version is what I call a plugin widget as it is a BuddyPress-specific widget and must be activated like other BP plugins. Widget installation is handled this way so that if BuddyPress is not activated, then this plugin widget will not be loaded—which could cause issues with your WP site. The widget does an internal check to see if BuddyPress is activated, if so then it continues loading. If not, it stops loading and will not be visible in the widget gallery. The widget is automatically activated sitewide so your other members will not see it in their plugins section if you’re running a multisite install.
