I enabled site tracking, but I was led to believe that was simply for buddypress (not my blog) to be informed of posts etc. – I actually thought it made no change, but I tested again and it worked! Only new posts will show, but it’s worked. Haha I feel like an idiot but thanks for helping!
Yes, there is a page for activity, but there is no option to “activate blog” and there is no blog page?
My activity stream component (checked) does say this though:
Activity Streams – Global, personal, and group activity streams with threaded commenting, direct posting, favoriting and @mentions, all with full RSS feed and email notification support.
