@marutim – sorry, should have mentioned that i didnt actually test it when i posted that but i just tried it on a site and it seems to work, and I can’t see anything wrong with the code you posted.
Not sure why its not working for you.
You could try outputting a “>”; since I just noticed its killing the page after the feed header’s started and it doesn’t close the HTML, but If your browser was sensitive to bad html you still shouldn’t have seen feed as wp would have killed it… So I don’t think its that…
@jesse24 – BuddyMobile Version 18.104.22.168 works well on my Nexus 7. Could you describe the issue in a little more detail? What android browsers are you using? there are many third parties that trick websites into thinking they are desktop browsers. are you using the defaults (Android browser or chrome for android?)
One option could be to create your own title function that mimics what bp_page_title() used to do then using that tutorial to output it (the conditional hasn’t changed)
I dont use Yoast seo and dont know what he does with his code, but if it helps here’s what BP uses now (in 1.6) – http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/branches/1.6/bp-core/bp-core-filters.
On the new codex them, there is a search form in the right sidebar.
1. It could be an issue with the redirects, does this link work for you? http://codex.buddypress.org/legacy/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/
2. The site here is using Bbpress 2 with the topic type as a super-sticky (or sticky. I still don’t know the difference between the two). You may want to see the codex at bbpress.org.
Apologise if my last reply was somewhat cryptic – what I meant to say is that BP doesn’t support it out of the box (yet), but anything can be done with the right skills. It accomplishes half of it (using the friends scope) to get the other half working, you may want to consider creating a new bp_has_activities() function to accommodate for what you’re trying to accomplish. Am I clearer this time?
If I remember correctly, that code by Rich Fuller does not work anymore and was the basis for Friendpress. The ‘author’ of Friendpress took that code and attempted to fix the bugs in it. As mentioned above, apparently it didn’t work as well as he thought.
You could use the die function that @aces provided but hook it to the BuddyPress actions (for site side feeds that’s ‘bp_activity_sitewide_feed’)
add_action('bp_activity_sitewide_feed', 'fb_disable_feed', 1);
Oh and with your last question, you can use your current theme (especially after 1.7). Just turn off registration, so that you create accounts manually and make it so that only logged in users can see BP pages.
Drdick8, in the next major version of BP (1.7) theming will be easier and allow you to use ANY WordPress theme out of the box. There are millions of WP themes. (See: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes)
With the 4. requirements listed all of them (depending on how you prefer to have it setup is provided out of the box)
1. You could use a Wp blog.
2. Post type (Post types are really easy to implement even without coding skills)
3. Post types, again.
4. Plugins. Would this be suitable? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/appointy-appointment-scheduler/
I think customising P2 (Which Automatic – the company that runs WordPress.com – uses for internal communication) may suit your needs well.
And regarding activity privacy, it’s coming soon, I believe. Profile privacy is still new and privacy takes a lot of work to implement.
Peter, there is a scope to show only friends in activity -http://codex.buddypress.org/developer-docs/custom-buddypress-loops/the-activity-stream-loop/
Showing the logged in user’s activity as well will require some basic php coding skills as core does not allow two scopes at this time.
@vienem to do what your trying to do (essentially cloning the groups functionality and giving it a different usage) is quite complex (I’ve done it for another site of mine, and it wasn’t quick. Can’t share the code at this time though as It needs to be polished with some personal stuff removed).
If you want to do it – I suggest doing it properly (I’ve seen sites trying to take shortcuts and to be honest, it never works) Look through the code in the bp-groups folder to see how the core developers have built the groups component, and using the Skeleton plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-skeleton-component/) to build it.
Just my suggestions.
The wp_footer() and wp_head() functions located in the footer and header files use just do_action to print all of there ‘stuff’ (meta, css, js etc).
The do_action() creates a hook. Basically it prints out the contents of the function that is added to that tag (bp_after_message_content) with add_action.
Usage? Let’s say Developer A makes a plugin that will place some text at the bottom of message contents, Instead of the end user having to edit the theme templates to add a call to the function, the developer can use `add_action(‘bp_after_message_content’, ‘plugins_function_that_does_stuff’);` WordPress will remember that function and will print it out where it finds `do_action( ‘bp_after_message_content’ )`
Does that help?
You will need to make a function that finds the role for the displayed user.
You will want to use a BuddyPress function in the ID paramenter instead of the wordpress functions shown in that codex article (see BP codex).
Havn’t looked into it fully for what your trying to do, but you will proburbly want to filter ‘bp_core_get_username’ and echo the function we made above.
Not sure if it still works as intended as it is about two years old but you might want to have a look at this plugin. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-usernames-only/
because of your use of `$post->ID`
I think you might need to use…
`global $bp, $post;`
It should display whereever `bp_message_get_notices();` is located in the template files (in the default theme, by default it should show when theirs a message and the user is logged in, right below the log out link in the sidebar.
“I might ask my developer to help me set it up cause I can’t figure this out myself..”
Good idea. That’s my motto: When in doubt, ask an expert
@neodjandre – The way the feature works is somewhat deceptive, what it does is posts a message on the screen (rather than their inbox) similar to what facebook does here – http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/facebook-groups-news-feed-error-message.png and it requires the template tag:
As seen in the default theme sidebar – http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/bp-themes/bp-default/sidebar.php#L26
`I wish there was more written about what buddypress can do and what the end result will look like. I don’t like the examples in the showcase because they don’t even remotely look like the buddypress that I have. I would love to see a very plain skeleton example of what buddypress does and how to set up a basic forum.`
BuddyPress has a test demo site [http://testbp.org] which will show you what it can do out of the box without doing any extra coding. The only way i can think of to put the end result into words is “It gives you a social network out of the box” (which is already on the BuddyPress.org homepage)
I’d highly recommend reading the Getting started pages on the codex http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/ go to page links on the right sidebar and read them
`For instance what is the difference between a forum and a post. They look exactly alike in the dashboard.`
As BuddyPress is an extension of WordPress, and is designed for WP users, is defining Blog Post and Forum Post necessary? I think your concern may be better at WordPress.org/forums as BuddyPress doesn’t define the word themselves, WordPress does.
`You can’t start a group because there are no topics.`
Are you using a plugin that makes topics a prequisite for starting a group? That’s not the way it works out of the box from my experience.
`Wouldn’t it be nice to have a little welcome page saying, “Here’s how to set up your buddypress forums. First you create a few groups. Then add topics to each group. You can’t add this until you add that so start with this.
I just want an overview so that I can know if I’m doing something wrong or if there is a problem with the software when I can’t add a forum or don’t see my topic.`
Seems you’ve already figured it out. As an open source project, You can contribute back what you learn by creating a codex article. http://codex.buddypress.org/
