“Or have a link that explains how?”
Ask, and you shall recieve! http://codex.buddypress.org/developer-docs/custom-buddypress-loops/the-activity-stream-loop/
1. WP Admin bar will be properly intergrated into buddypress in 1.6 (this site is one step ahead of us)… on a similar topic: Looking at your avatar… you dont look blonde…
2. Have you seen the three listed in the plugin directory? http://buddypress.org/extend/plugins/?search=privacy
@abysshorror I know, a proper privacy plugin is something ALOT of users want, including myself – but sadly, this plugin does not achieve that and i don’t think their is an easy way to force the plugin to hide activity… (if it was that easy, we’d already have a real privacy plugin and wouldn’t be having this conversation. lol)
i remember reading a reply from @modemlooper (though, i might have mis-read it, or something) on his plugin’s forum before he closed it stating that he wasn’t putting proper activity privacy into the plugin because the core devs are supposedly working on a privacy component and it’s something that needs to be in core.
@abysshorror It’s called Bp-PROFILE-privacy for a reason The plugin seems to currently only hide the activity profile page rather than hiding the activity from people.
Also, while i’m here – just so anyone doesn’t get a shock when 1.6 is released… the plugin author has stated that he is no longer supporting or updating these plugins [Source: http://buddychimp.com/
the whole bbpress+buddypress thing is expected to become alot easier and better in BP 1.6. (so it’s subject to change)
But for now, Sitewide forums are using bbpress 2.0 theming have a look here – http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-20-theme-compatibility
Does this help?
@bryanjwatson out of the box, buddypress doesn’t really do much with multi-site blogs. Afew features are planned however – such as allowing users to post from the front end rather than requiring the need to go to the admin panel (refer to http://buddypress.org/about/roadmap). That’s one feature i’m calmly waiting for :p
Currently, If you have the tracking option you mentioned above selected, it will post your users blog posts to the activity stream. It will also links the logged-in users comments and the blog posts author links to their buddypress members profiles and It also adds a listing of users blogs on their profile and in a directory on the front-end. That’s really all it does out-of the box. It’s still your regular multisite experience that your used to.
Have any other ideas on how to further-enhance the multisite social experience?
hrm, i got it working by hacking it and using “
i guess this will work for now, it accomplishes what i need.
`<a href="/activity/p/”> ago · `
is their a better way?
Thanks alot @r-a-y, the amount of times you have directly and indirectly helped me out.
i tried this -
But it stripped out the item id.
maybe im doing something wrong? in my entry.php i put
“> ago · `
type in a unique username for it, when i installed bbpress, i chose ‘forumadmin’. you can easily make your ‘admin’ username the keymaster for it later, when its setup.
does anyone know if anythings happening with this?
hrmm, not sure why its not showing the password area….
try inserting the password manualy in the bb-config file.
maby i should look before i leap? i was trying to use bbpress 9 lol
as soon as i noticed the tiny version number at the bottom, and uploaded bbpress 1.0 it worked
next time something doesnt work, im going to try opening my eyes
thanks trent for the helpful guide
some of the achievments in your PDF are awsome!
cant wait to check it out.
but im a little worried, they get points for having their friend requests rejected? so, if i joined your site, made my profile look like im a spammer and added every member on the members list and everyone rejects my profile… i get an ‘achievement’?
thoes ‘rejected’ achievements worry me a little, but i like the others.
1. the only way to get to the buddypress.org WPMU dashboard is by typing the url into your browser, or clicking the link you posted above. that page is only their for andy to update this site and his blog (http://buddypress.org/blog).
On your own site, if you would like them to use that dashboard, you could post a link in your navigation bar?
2. yes, technicaly speaking, every user on this site has 2 dashboards. however, the wpMU dashboard has no user-features.
On your own site, if you enable user-blogs the WPMU dashboard would allow them to post to their blogs, ect. as andy has them turned off on this site, the WPMU dashboard is simply their for peaple to admire its good looks
3. it depends on if you have user-blogs allowed. on this site everyone (other than the admins) sees the exact same thing.
In a future version could you add a new admin-setting so that the admin section could be turned off to users? when its turned off they get redirected back to buddypress?
The Dashboard is here – http://buddypress.org/developers/YOURUSERNAME/dashboard
the link you posted is to the wordpressMU dashboard.
