    When I publish a new post to the blog all i get is ‘ADMIN wrote a new post, pictures 2 minutes ago’. I also want to show the post featured image in the stream. Can I do that?

    hi @shubh14,

    please give some details about your configuration when you ask for help.

    WP/BP version, sigle or network install, theme name, used plugins.

    Yes this is very easy to do.

    Adding the featured image of a wordpress post into a buddypress activity stream can be done by doing one of the following. I’d like to add that I had trouble finding out how to do this at first and it took a lot of searching. The first copypasta I have for you was actually found on these very forums. However, due to so many people asking this question (and not getting answers) it is buried and very difficult to find. So without further ado please enjoy…

    You can either edit the activity page activity/entry.php or just copy paste the following function into your functions.php file.

    
    function icondeposit_bp_activity_entry_meta() {
     
        if ( bp_get_activity_object_name() == 'blogs' && bp_get_activity_type() == 'new_blog_post' ) {?>
            <?php
            global $wpdb, $post, $bp;
            $theimg = wp_get_attachment_image_src(  get_post_thumbnail_id( bp_get_activity_secondary_item_id() ) );
            ?>
            <img src="<?php echo $theimg[0]; ?>" >
     
        <?php }
     
    }
    add_action('bp_activity_excerpt_append_text', 'icondeposit_bp_activity_entry_meta');
    

    If you want further customization, I recommend editing activity/entry.php

    Fits with my theme, might not yours (my thumbnails are larger than default and I’m using a masonry layout) see it at http://www.hvac-hacks.com/activity

    @danbp Sorry about that. I am using WP 3.7.1, Buddypress 1.8.1, WP User Frontend. Single wordpress install.

    @matt-mcfarland thank you for your help. I added your code to functions file. however, out of three posts, I only see one with a visible attachment. See pic.
    screenshot

    P.S. You have a beautiful site..just a few issues. Activity page – the first buttons row is hidden behind the top header and the ‘members’ count shows 1 however, you have 1700+ members.

    Single post page – the ‘login to reply’ link in comments aren’t visible as they are of the same color as the button bg

    Thanks for your feedback! :D

    I fixed the css issues you brought to my attention. Also fixed the number count (broke after updating to 1.9 beta, had to copy over legacy again to fix)

    As for only one image showing up in your activity feed that is strange, did you try editing entry.php?

    Thank you for your help. The code you provided shows post featured images however, how do I add pretty permalink to the images?
    this <a href="<?php echo get_post_permalink(bp_get_activity_secondary_item_id()); ?>"> returns <a href="http://localhost/mysite/?post_type=post&p=33">. However, I would like http://localhost/mysite/my-trip. I have a single wordpress installation.
