Thanks, @shanebp, that worked like a charm. The only issue I have is that it the content type is being posted with the “mini” class instead of as a normal size in the activity stream. Any thoughts on how to remove that class?
Resolved by enqueing js and ajax properly.
Weird. Went back and it’s fine now.
Mark as resolved.
Thanks for your help. Any idea on how to change the meta title for the directory. It just says Directory and I would like it to be “Badges Directory”. Doesn’t seem like an edit in the POT file. Maybe a conditional if statement in the header.php will do it?
Yea, well that was part of it. But in messing around with it more it still is throwing errors in Poedit. It needs something in the header to make it happy. Once I threw this in it was ok but now some edits I make aren’t being shown, as in changing “favourite” to “favorite” you know, the PROPER, spelling at least for us yanks:
“Plural-Forms: nplurals=2; plural=(n > 1);n”
I was able to preface the update if it existed with this:
$latest_update = bp_get_activity_latest_update();
if ( bp_get_activity_latest_update() )
echo “and the latest update was:
I’d like to preface the update (it it’s available ) with:
‘and the latest update was:
Wrapping the update in italics and breaking the update from the preceeding “‘member’ was active 3 minutes ago”
I’ve tried some echos but it’s breaking for some reason unknown.
Avatars and group avatars directory chmod to 777 -> no luck
.htaccess deleted, recreated by updating permalinks -> no luck
Will do, @djpaul. This was one of the factors for contacting you about potential work in the future. It’s a huge research interest of mine and something I’d love to be able to do at the moment in BuddyPress as a way to further prove its worth as a LMS.
Also, take a look at things like Social Collider for a user interaction mapping: http://socialcollider.net/
@paulhastings0 this is definitely a start towards greater analytics, but the grand idea is to map connections or lack of connections and to pinpoint social activity.
I’ll put these plugins in my arsenal. Thanks!
Additionally, does anyone have any experience expertly tailoring Google Analytics to map certain activities?
I’ve been thinking about the community relationship involved with “Favorites” and known as “Like”, of course, on Facebook. @bplove I understand how Favorites are equivalent to Bookmarks, but I’d stress to @boonebgorges and other BP devs the difference (though you probably already know them, being the smart guy you are), is important.
Use in the “Like” fashion, we’re (potentially) able to group social relationship to a certain topic and then be able to pull those relationships out in a variety of ways:
-Show a cluster of most liked topics
-Connect individuals who like a certain topic together either via opt-in messaging or just graphically via avatars
-Connect these “Like” actions into the activity stream and add a filter
As of right now, BP.org doesn’t really do any of this. Yes, we can see each other’s favorites in individual profiles, but that information isn’t pushed to me in any way.
worked like a charm. thanks!
I threw this in the fuctions.php with no success. Has anything changed since you posted this?
remove_filter( 'bp_get_the_profile_field_value', 'xprofile_filter_link_profile_data', 2 );
I’ve got a client who needs private blogs (to hide from the scary google robots) but a public directory.
So, I read through all of this and tried to piece it together. I get the theory but I can’t write it to make it work.
I’m trying but I’m not really getting anywhere. If you’ve got a spare second, I’d love to see an example and dissect some of your code.
a theory is much better than what I had… crap.
I figured I’d have to hook into something but didn’t know in what order to do things. I’ll try it out later sometime and report back.
If you’re speaking more about distance education and e-learning, I invite you to look at a few resources on my site:
PJ mentions the Scholarpress plugin, which, I agree, is a bit faulty at the moment. But keep track of the Google Summer of Code project that looks to blend Scholarpress with BuddyPress and improve its features as well:
I think a lot of what you want to accomplish is inherently available within BuddyPress. Meetings could equate to groups. Conferences could be a specific BuddyPress site with some features on or off. I’ve found that looking at BuddyPress – and WordPress for that matter – with a different lens has expanded my perspective on what this software can really do.
Yep that works.
For everyone else, here’s what I did to refresh the member count:
1) Go to your groups members page at something like mysite.com/groups/my-group/members
2) Do a hard refresh
The member count will then be accurate.
