hi i made a test user here:
but if you’ll notice all other buddypress functionality redirects to a registration page, and that redirect is handled by wishlist member.
if you go here
you’ll get redirected.
BUT — obviously i only want profiles visible to logged in users. the rest of the site looks to be functioning properly.
I’m using the twentytwelve theme and have a child theme set up — and am using that.
Does the above info mean that I would create the directories
and create fileprofile-loop.php
i’d like to rephrase that – it’s “my” goal that all comments for specific content appear both under posts and in the activity stream – maybe others have other configuration goals.
the idea is that if someone comments on Content, that the comment appears wherever comments are gathered.
so, we have posts w comments and we have an activity stream where excerpts of the posts appear, but you can expand the content to see the whole thing.
the goal is: regardless of whether you are at the post itself or if you are in the activity stream — your comments appear in both places.
Original Content has a “stream of comments” that same stream of comments should appear in the activity stream – and that same stream of comments should appear under the posts.
Does this feature work yet? I think it kind of did for a while on one of my less trafficked sites — i don’t have a BP site that has a lot of use — partially for these configuration reasons…
ideally, of course, when people comment within the activity stream, they would not have to “leave” the activity stream to participate at a website.
user makes a comment on the activity stream and that comment also shows up at the blog post as a comment
user comments at the blog post/page — and of course the activity stream is updated, because the user commented on the content
is such a set-up possible — where the activity stream is more functional?
otherwise — it’s kind of a post stream — but if two different sets of comments are generated then the functionality is unusable.
if the “out the box” BP functionality is unusable/counter-intuitive — then of course i need to “disable activity stream commenting on blog and forum posts,” but actually — by how that sounds — that’s exactly what i want to “enable,” because i want visitors to be able to post within the activity stream — and on the blog and forum posts — and have the comment stream under the “original post” be the same (since it is about the same content).
i’m using “a lot of words” to describe something quite simple, but maybe you can sort through the verbiage and see what i mean.
Regardless of Whether on a Page/Post or within the Activity Stream
Logical, Simple, Functional, Intuitive.
i think i remember what i did a few years back — i forced users to jump out to the posts themselves to make comments. i think i did this by just not displaying the comment buttons in the activity stream … something like that.
http://buddypress.org/support/tag/forums/ looks good
is there a search that searches all of the forums?
(note: this is only part of the solution for me, I also want an entry which was made on the activity stream also as a wordpress comment…) — there is a plugin for that and i installed it and it worked for me…
i think the right one is “BuddyPress Activity Stream as Blog Comments”
google indexing my site does not make blog comments appear in the activity stream though…
these topics relate:
don’t have a solution yet — btw: what’s the easiest way to figure out what file is being discussed in the codex?
but i’m not sure how to code the fix.
it’s probably a tiny little ‘false’ changed to ‘true’ somewhere — but where?
(or something like that)
this relates but i can’t put it together — http://bpdevel.wordpress.com/2011/08/12/custom-post-types-comments-and-the-activity-stream-in-bp-1-5/
i tried turning the setting mentioned here off then back on again and i still do not see page or post comments in the activity stream: is there a solution available?
having the same issue, would love to find a resolution
ahh — i was going to do that but gave the “private buddypress” plugin a shot and it worked.
i am relieved and grateful
huh, i just tried the “private buddypress” plugin — using the latest WP BP for nov 2 2012 (plz lookup the versions if you need to), and the plugin works just fine.
i am quite grateful to the creator of the private buddypress plugin. it does everything i need it to do.
life’s hard enough as it is — when you catch a “break” like this with code that works as promised without hassles and even without payment — you just really have to say thanks.
thanks to dennis at: http://profiles.wordpress.org/GIGALinux/ seriously — thanks!
yeah, i haven’t quite known what to “do” with akismet since they started charging. there is something “odd” about paying to “not get” spam — especially when anyone can “create” spam — so theoretically — akismet could make spam that gets through spam filters other than their own.
or something like that.
i have some other spam filters activated and they seem to work so it’s not biggie for now.
thnx for your feedback paul!
i deactivated akismet and was able to post — not sure if the issue is resolved though.
if you consider accomplishing the task by hitting my laptop with a fuzzy mallet, pouring coffee into the keyboard to “wake up” the computer, downloading databases, failing at recovering my backup, then needing flop and then flip versions of BP back and forth, and then just waving my hands over the computer chanting “oh buddypress and wordpress update work oh work hhoooommiiiiii aaaah”
and then it working.
PS: i did very few of the above mentioned steps and do not recommend you try them at home.
slam blam bloom blaaam. upgraded WP first. then went through BP 1.5 and then 1.5.6 then auto to latest.
ok, tried to go from buddypress 1.2.6 to 1.5 on a WP 3.0.1 site
and got the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function show_admin_bar() in wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-buddybar.php on line 585
restoring the site from a backup now.
i had all of the plugins inactivated.
how do you suggest i proceed — the site is using the default BP theme.
i guessed at the naming convention and just added “.zip” to the filename.
so if the current version is at http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/buddypress.1.6.1.zip
i was guessing though and could not find that info posted anywhere though it likely is…
back to guessing a bit, trying to download the versions. i’m here poking around: http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser#tags/1.5.1
would i need to download those folders, rename them buddypress and then upload that way?
where do i download the older versions of buddypress?
right so my feedback/input/solutions for the topic “buddypress.org redesign issues” is
* put a login widget or login solution in an easy-to-see place
* don’t make us go to google to search for stuff and make sure we can find info as quickly and as easily as possible so we are not lost in the forums looking for tech info etc. — make sure people find what they need and want as quickly as possible and design search functionality that facilitates what is called “just in time knowledge delivery” in tech writing circles. (that means do not make us click and search and read and read and read and read — help us find what we need as quickly as possible via an excellent search tool that yields excellent results)
