Any plugin/hack to allow update space in top bar?

    I really love Buddypress but my big gripe is that it isn’t very intuitive for users when it comes to adding an update. They need to go to their profile, click update, then scroll down for the box to update.

    What would REALLY be nice is if the top BP bar on the site had a space for people who are logged in to simply type in updates and click to submit right from that top bar. I have poked around, but I don’t see a plugin that does this. Does one exist? Or does anyone know a code hack to add that capability into the top bar?

    You can use the code from plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/activity/post-form.php to cobble a post form on other areas of a site.

    Thanks! Do you know what portion of the code there I would paste into the theme where I want an update box to appear?

    That file is the complete post form but you may need to edit it to make it work on other areas. I wouldn’t do it on a live site.

    You could try adding this somewhere in a theme file.

    <?php locate_template( array'activity/post-form.php'), true ) ?>
