Participate and Contribute


Help improve BuddyPress documentation by writing articles or updating existing material on the BuddyPress Codex. Our documentation is volunteer-led and is driven by community contributions, and consists of articles and guides to using BuddyPress. We encourage everyone to get involved and help improve our documentation.

Everyone may contribute or edit pages on the codex. To prevent spam, we manually access to the site to new contributors. The simplest way to do this is via the support forums with a new topic requesting access and mentioning one of the following people:

@jjj, @DJPaul, @boonebgorges, @mercime, @hnla, @shanebp, @danbp, @henrywright

Support Forums

The most valuable way to contribute to BuddyPress is to help others learning how to use the software, on our support forums.

Test & Report Bugs

The BuddyPress Trac allows you to file bug reports and enhancement ideas, as well as taking a look at the source code of BuddyPress and all the changes throughout versions.

If you think you’ve found a bug, it’s a good idea to search Trac first to see if a ticket already exists that you could contribute to. Otherwise, go ahead and open a new ticket!

Never written a bug report? The WordPress Handbook has an excellent guide on what to do before you report a bug and how to write a good bug report.

Translate BuddyPress

Become a Translation Editor and select BuddyPress. Choose your preferred language e.g. German. Then select ‘Stable (latest release)’ or ‘Development (trunk)’. The translation needs to be at least 90% complete to be approved for the Stable/Dev languages.

Contribution meetings

BuddyPress contribution meetings happen every Wednesday. To check the scheduled time, see the sidebar on the Development Blog.
