Description

BuddyPress introduced functionality in v4.0.0 to allow users to export their WordPress data.

If you navigate to "My Settings > Export Data", you should see a page that resembles this:
https://buddypress.org/wp-content/uploads/1/2018/11/data-export.png

However, it's currently blank as our bp-nelo theme uses an older BuddyPress format. I'll add support for bp-nelo, but do we want to disable this functionality on the Commons?

Marking for 1.14.6 so I can add this functionality to bp-nelo, but we can bump to 1.14.7 if we need to disable this.

I've added support for the "My Settings : Export Data" page here - https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/7585f063146210ccd2cbdad2d4f0c733bb503ec7


One thing I didn't think about is the WordPress export data functionality only supports one site at a time.

Since BuddyPress piggybacks off of WordPress, BuddyPress only handles the main, root site for WordPress content like posts and comments. If a user is expecting that the data export includes all of their WordPress blog content from all their sites, this currently is not possible.

Good catch, Ray!

I wouldn't worry too much about the all-content-from-all-sites bit right now, though it's a good feature for WordPress itself to implement :-D

Wow, Ray. I'm excited to learn about this functionality. It seems pretty big, both for user requests that come in but also for potential GDPR compliance.
