Description

We removed this long ago, but it must have snuck back in through a site update.

Are there other things that might have been overwritten, as well?

It looks like the Enhanced BuddyPress Widgets plugin we've been running for a few years was no longer working, possibly because of some load-order issues in the most recent BuddyPress.

I wrote an improved version of the widget override and removed the old plugin: https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/46e56ec674470867a0e3a55e0a3516ce9ef293d6

Are there other things that might have been overwritten, as well?

If you notice anything, please open a ticket.

Thanks, Boone. What are the prospects of releasing that widget publicly through a plugin?

#3 Updated by Boone Gorges over 6 years ago

It's a bad idea. This is not so much a useful plugin as it is a brute force override of a BuddyPress feature. A more reasonable approach would be for BuddyPress to allow filtering of these tabs, which is something I might do at some point.

Okay. FWIW, removing the "popular" link was one of the first suggestions I heard made (over twitter) for the MLA Commons, so I'm not alone in thinking that it would be a good idea.
