Hi, I´m implementing Peerboard with wordpress and this are a few things that needs to get fixed.
If you deactivate the plugin it loses all the settings you have already configure once you activated again. The bigger problem is that it loses the login address, so you end up with a mess of double logins if that happens. Its really important that the settings are preserved if you deactivate and activate again. That´s the normal behavior in wordpress plugins. I have pleople that created a peerboard account and not a wordpress account because of that.
This one is a hard to go around also. As peerboard has its own user profile, how do we sync or manage that with plugins that also have a profile. For example, I use LearnDash, and almost every plugin for memberships sites has profiles. So I need to choose one to use. But I can´t hide peerboard profile.
In this sense here are a few conflicts:
- For example, in Learndash, user can see le courses list. There the find info about their accounts, one of those is their profile image.
If I change that image, it won´t sync with peerboard. That´s a problem because I can´t hide peerboard profile. The ideal scenario will be that if I change the image in Peerboard profile, the image in wordpress changes also, and if I change the profile image in Wordpress, the peerboar image changes also.
Also it would be ideal to be able to link the profile of users in the main menu, but as it is, if I try to use /profile as an url, it always returns a 404 error, for example:
If I go to my profile, the url is: https://performancemarketingclub.com/profile/2088104063
I can access if I go in to the profile option inside peerboard board.
But, if I take that link, and pasted in as an url it gives an 404 error. Exactly the same link, it only works if I go from the profile menu on the board. So I can´t link that profile anywhere.
Also I want to be able to have a menu in the header in which I can link the profile of the user. But as for now, It can´t be done. Also It needs to be contextual, something like /profile
The account creation process is kind of confusing. For example, I don´t need the bio, not slogan, not the options in this form.
First my user create their account entering the the name, last name and email, but peerboard ask for their name again in the /profile/onboarding
But in wordpress the name is register correctly
And the automatic user import option for first and last names is check.
The problem here for me is that, if the user changes their name in Peerboard, it already have a name in wordpress, and it may use a diferent name, making a mess in my data base, having a name in wordpress and another name in Peerboard.
For example, I created an account in wordpress here: https://performancemarketingclub.com/register/
I set the name Isidro7, last name fernandez7
After the user completes the register form, they are redirected to /community and start the peerboard onbording, here the name appear as is not completed. And I set the name to "name on peerboard"
And complete the profile. Now If I look in to the wordpress user, my worpress user name is isidro7, but in the peerboard account is "name on peerboard"
This needs to be in sync, otherwise is really hard to manage. I send the wordpress user to my email software (active campaign) and so, I end up with diferent names.
In peerboard profile:
In learndash profile (extracted from wordpress)
In wordpress Profile.
I think the profile sync is specially important!
I hope you guys can help me with this ones.
