@modemlooper yours is a really a great plugin, but it’s just shy of what I need.
I would like to be able to set the default activity tabs for a users activity page.
So that when they click on their own username and they are are directed to their own activity page, the activity shown by default could be selected from Personal, Mentions, Friends, Favorites, Gallery, Groups.
Would you be able to help me in this direction or would you consider it for a new version ?
(thought I’d ask)
@shawn38 so I’m just using the default theme now.
WP 3.4.2 BP 1.6.1.
When I try and login it gives a whiteout.
(Also, I’d like to know would be easy to add group activity to the options? Even if you could point me in the right direction.)
Seeing as you obviously know how to use a gun, I have run a bunch of checks on my test install.
The reason for my “white out” is because of the theme I was using “The Walled Garden”
It would appear that the plugin is now working as stated with the default theme.
(I have just realised, this is also your theme : ).
However, it still doesn’t give me what I need most, the option to include streams from groups that my users are members of, which includes activity from users that they may yet be friends with.
Also, on my website I “had” implemented (and liked) the “followers” plugin that requires you to turn “friends” off.
@shawn38 I stand corrected. Please would you be able to help me in some way to achieve what I need from your plugin?
Also, could you tell me, does your plugin re-direct to the set activity stream when a user navigates to their profile via the BP links within the site, or just when they login?
PS: I loved your theme, no I am stuck.
Extended settings doesn’t quite do what I’d like it to do (set the default tab on the activity tab of my profile page)
buddypress-friendpress gave me a whiteout with all the latest versions.
I was so close and then yet so far : (
I have this problem too ! ! !
Thanks for the heads up !
I just had a look at zippykid, they seemed like they listened to my problem.
I had a look at their Q&A and found this :
“What plugins can I use on my site?
We don’t restrict any plugins that you use on your site, but we do recommend a few. If you have any problems with plugins or want to know which ones we recommend.”
I have a lot of plugins, isn’t it the nature of a buddypress install to mould the website into hwo you want it, by using a bunch of plugins.
Maybe ZippyKid is not so good, why do you say they are? @Quint
Can anyone recommend a reasonable minimum VPS setup for Buddypress setup with less than 50 users ?
With no more than 5 logging on at a time.
My spikes of usage come with processes rather than page loads, such as the creation of a group event and the sending out of emails to all the group members.
My issuues are not with the number of users, I have a max of 40 active users and no more than 5 come on line at any one time.
My problem (besides having a lot of plugins) is when I run processes with some custom plugins they apparently use a lot of processing power to create an event, send an email, etc etc and the spike gets highlighted by an automated service on the server and in that one minute I could get shut down.
In the small print, it says something about using more than 25% of processor power for more than 90secs.
I asked host gator whether uping my account to a VPS would help, the recommended me to a level 5 VPS:
CPU 2.69 GHZ
RAM 1824 MB
Disk Space 80 GB
Bandwidth 1425 GB
But they didn’t really say why they were recommending this or demonstrated that they even understood how the website worked.
I have just seen that Hostgator offer a VPS account.
I am considering just upgrading my existing to a VPS or do people have bad experience with reason, with these cheap companies. (Hostgator, hostmonster, bluehost etc)
The problem I have had with hostgator is more to do with spikes in processes than spikes in traffic.
I think most of these spikes are to do with plugins that are ending out mails (I might be wrong) for example, group email subscription.
Could I limit this spike by somehow using gmail to manage my mail server. Just a thought, I don’t really know how this would work.
The grid service that @modemlooper mentions apparently has a 50 email a minute limit
On another note, I have found 36cloud that offers a cloud node with a dedicated 600Mhz CPU. Would this be faster. Would this provide noticably faster page loads and help prevent my problems happening ?
Everyone, thank you for all your answers you’re very helpful.
I will look into a VPN or the grid service, both sound interesting.
I honestly thought I was doing the right thing, but obviously went from one inappropriate service to another.
Thanks again and if anyone else wants to add their recommendations, I’d still love to hear them.
So I feel I am being lead away from HTML and towards a new art of php.
Making an html link, calling the image, adding the link, placing it, sizing it, all makes sense to me. But working that php into this, or with this somehow, or re-writting this in php, still doesn’t make sense to me, sorry.
Sorry for being a noob, ,but my plan was to just add a text widget to the sidebar and create a graphic with a link.
How would I put the php code into an html link?
Well, I found out the hard way, that was the wrong thing to hack out.
So now I’m looking at the php files in plugins/buddypress-followers/_inc/templates/members/single
Something that has just occured to me, with what I am trying to do.
Is it possible that we can make this happen for member list in Private groups only ?
or even friends within a private group
I found this http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/profile-fields-in-members-list-on-groups-page/
but I don’t know where I need to put the code (obviously I need to edit it for the name of my field)
Maybe have a look at the “Buddypress Followers plugin”
So this is what happens when you haven’t set your Activity page in the Buddypress pages setup.
I’m sorry !
this has to be somethinng I’ve done right!
on the buddypress default theme, at the top of the right hand column, there is a box that includes your avatar, a link to your profile and a logout button.
When you click on the link to your profile, it takes you to your profile tab on your profile page.
I would like it to take me to my Activity tab, on my profile page.
