    hmmmm !??! I don’t think I need the network just for my contacts :)
    Simply need to do that, as building a multi-pages registration form seems million times more difficult than that and nobody here knows how to do that anyways :(

    So … the question is basically a php question about how to pull the values from a session and pre-populate the BP-extended form fields from the registration page with that.

    That’s no problem to populate stand-alone fields (like username or email for ex) the problem comes with those extra fields which are dynamically generated and I have no clue how to replace the values !??!?

    Seems like nobody knows ?!? Not even those who programmed that stuff ?!?!

    the guys who programmed BP seem to need a “how to use” tutorial for their own site :P

    @candy2012

    Anyone !??!?! This is most likely just a simple php issue, and of course BP, as one needs to know how that filed name should be called …
    All I need is to dynamically parse the name of the extra filed in that [] bit (to dynamically output the values for those fields if found in the session ` > so output smth like $_SESSION, $_SESSION, $_SESSION etc `

    I am not a programmer, and I could not find anywhere how that bp filed variable is called and how to grab that …

    Hope some one will react … can’t be such a big issue for a php guru :) … (well, my take at least)

    PS: anyone can please tell WHY do I need to try and post at least 5 times (apparently “I already “said that” – though I never did!!) untill a post makes it through here ?!??!? Puzzles me …

    Any idea at least how can I change this:

    `value=””`

    to smth like this

    `value=””`

    The above does not work of course, but if there is a way to insert there the name of the filed, that would do, right?

    Thx

    @candy2012

    actually I managed to pass the variables from form7 onto the register.php, but I need those values to prefill some of those extended user fields. As those extend user fields are built up dynamically, I am stuck …

    Any idea would be appreciated – this is now 100% regarding buddypress (I really hope this forum is not THAT dead …)

    Hi Hugo,
    Thanks for looking into it. I have no bars though, disabled those long ago because I found them annoying and confusing.

    But thanks a lot for the tip, I just went into one user profile over the frontend, than added /change-avatar in the end of the URL, and … it worked!

    Thanks again !

    Any intention to make at least the support part searchable? Or at least take the search box out, it’s confusing, as it is completely unfunctional anyways.

    I am sure there are tons of double topics and 90% remain (also because of this) unanswered.
    Was this this idea !?

    Second … how can I find my old posts !?! Where !??! Are these here forums, groups or what !??!

    Sorry, but the layout is just terrible and 100% user-unfriendly.

    I needed 2 days to find a way to post something and if you ask me how, I have no clue. Just clicked around liek crazy and at a certain moment I saw a button.

    By the way, on this topic … what did the “reply” button lose there on the top !??1
    I had to look about 10 minutes to figure how to reply here!

    Reply buttons belong always in the end. Bellow the topic for God sake, not on top ….

    Sorry to tell you this, you guys have developed a really great system but you don’t seem to figure out how to use it properly yourselves ….

    Anyone ?!??!?!? @djpaul !??!

    (the lack of reaction suddenly reminded me of the non-existent support of buddypress … )

    But hope dies last .. so here some more to my question:

    How can i make this text only “friend X posted smth on FreindY’s wall” to appear in the general timeline (under root/activity) when a friend is posting smth. on one of his friends wall (root/members/friendY)
    and not showing the content of the post or the avatar of the poster ?!?!

    Just a line of text, like in facebook ….

    Thank you

    Please do NOT recommend plugings which are obviously broken! Looks that WP G+ plugin NEVER worked! Everybody who tried it complained, there was not even 1 single reply from the developers ….

    “Great”, right?

    .acomment-meta a.acomment-reply {display:none;}

    this would hide “reply” to “reply” link …

    there is one plugin called “buddypress like” or smth, search for it in the repository. Is not perfect, but does at least part of the job

    Any progress on this? some things are moving really slow or AT ALL with buddypress …

    We need the option to DEACTIVATE a user please, not delete!

    I don’t want them to be able to come next day and register with the same credentials and start the crap again.

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    @candy2012

    HI! Thanks for the help, got them to comply eventually :)

    Unfortunatelly I had to deactivate the plugin, because it was causing some real issues with the activity stream (blocking it) and also the “load” function on the bottom (not loading anything).

    Guess I’ll have to “hack” some buttons directly now …

    the reason you need the 1st part is that if you do not do it, when you click the Tab “All Members” you will still be served the unfiltered all users activity stream. that’s the behaviour that I have witnessed on my site at least.

    So it seems that the first function is blocking everything that is not “me or friend” to be shown.
    And this is what I wanted, this is how the other networks also work.

    Works beautifully now

    Thank you @modemlooper but that’s not enough and makes no change; we need a function to check if friend or not to apply to all streams.

    And I think I can say …. yes yes yes yes yes! I found the combination that seems to finally turn buddypress into a modern social network :-)

    So here the wonder-code (it must have smth to do with 11/11/11 > wish came true :) ):

    Code:
    function my_is_friend_check( $friend_id = false) {
    global $bp;

    if ( !is_user_logged_in() )
    return false;

    if ( is_site_admin() )
    return true;

    if ( !$friend_id ) {
    $potential_friend_id = $bp->displayed_user->id;
    } else {
    $potential_friend_id = $friend_id;
    }

    if ( $bp->loggedin_user->id == $potential_friend_id )
    return false;

    if ( friends_check_friendship_status($bp->loggedin_user->id, $potential_friend_id) == ‘is_friend’ )
    return true;

    return false;
    }

    function my_denied_activity_nonfriends( $a, $activities ) {
    global $bp;

    //if admin we want to know
    if ( is_site_admin() )
    return $activities;

    foreach ( $activities->activities as $key => $activity ) {

    if ( $activity->user_id != $bp->loggedin_user->id && $activity->user_id != 0 && !my_is_friend_check($activity->user_id) ) {

    unset( $activities->activities[$key] );

    $activities->activity_count = $activities->activity_count-1;
    $activities->total_activity_count = $activities->total_activity_count-1;
    $activities->pag_num = $activities->pag_num -1;

    }
    }

    $activities_new = array_values( $activities->activities );
    $activities->activities = $activities_new;

    return $activities;
    }
    add_action( ‘bp_has_activities’, ‘my_denied_activity_nonfriends’, 10, 2 );

    For all buddymuppets to enjoy :-)

    Thank you @modemlooper !

    I don’t think I really know how to start on that …

    I have tried this:

    foreach( $activities->activities as $key => $activity ) {
    if ( $activity->scope ==’friends’ || $activity->scope ==’just_me’) {
    unset( $activities->activities[$key] );

    but it does not work, I mean I only get the friends but not my own posts :-(

    As far as I understood is the “scope” I need not the action types (I want all actions to show, but for friends and the current user only)

    What am I doing wrong?

    An other thing that I have noticed, when I click on the “All users” Tab, the site-wide activity is there all untouched, and this is definitely not supposed to hapen. I need to filter that fully out!

    Just like Facebook! Imagine you loginto Facebook and get the billions of user activity statuses rolling in front of your eyes …

    I guess it has to be checked somehow that the displayed activity belongs to the current-user friends only …
    but how !??!

    “If you want help find the appropriate forum & post” … well, that’s quite part of the problem …. when you manage to find smth over the search, there’s no way you can reply / post to that topic in many cases.

    Really nobody who knows how to collate own activity and the friends activity on the same page !??!??!

    Thanks for confirming the ímportance of this topic. I really cannot understand why BP does not even seem to want to look into it.

    I would be happy even with a core / bp-custom hack, not necessary a plugin.
    SOMETHING to help solve it!

    And no matter how much I looked and tried to get this done, nothing worked so far!

    BP Team , PLEASE HELP US solve this!

    Thanks!
