blog comments showing in activity stream, but activity stream comment replies…

    @dainismichel

    blog comments are showing in the activity stream, but activity stream comment replies are not showing up in their proper place (as replies to post comments).

    fix?

    what i am saying is that if someone makes a comment to a blog post — and that comment shows up in the activity stream — if i reply in the activity stream, then the reply should also show up on the blog post — and that’s not happening right now.

    i think i found a solution a few years back — but anyone know of a recent way to fix this issue?

    i think i remember what i did a few years back — i forced users to jump out to the posts themselves to make comments. i think i did this by just not displaying the comment buttons in the activity stream … something like that.

    @dainismichel go to Settings > BuddyPress > Settings – Activity Streams and check “Disable activity stream commenting on blog and forum posts?”

    ideally, of course, when people comment within the activity stream, they would not have to “leave” the activity stream to participate at a website.

    ideally:
    user makes a comment on the activity stream and that comment also shows up at the blog post as a comment
    and
    user comments at the blog post/page — and of course the activity stream is updated, because the user commented on the content

    is such a set-up possible — where the activity stream is more functional?

    otherwise — it’s kind of a post stream — but if two different sets of comments are generated then the functionality is unusable.

    if the “out the box” BP functionality is unusable/counter-intuitive — then of course i need to “disable activity stream commenting on blog and forum posts,” but actually — by how that sounds — that’s exactly what i want to “enable,” because i want visitors to be able to post within the activity stream — and on the blog and forum posts — and have the comment stream under the “original post” be the same (since it is about the same content).

    i’m using “a lot of words” to describe something quite simple, but maybe you can sort through the verbiage and see what i mean.

    Same Content
    Same Comments
    Regardless of Whether on a Page/Post or within the Activity Stream

    Logical, Simple, Functional, Intuitive.

    Did you manage to find a solution to this? I’m sitting in the same situation.

    if i remember correctly, some plugin fixed it. but i can’t remember what it was called. also, i’m pretty sure i asked the initial question several years ago — not 10 months ago.

    let us know how/if you resolve the issue. i haven’t checked on this issue in quite a while and honestly can’t remember how the solution/workaround i have on my 2 buddypress sites.

    Hey @dainismichel, thanks for your reply.

    I’m experiencing the same as…

    “blog comments are showing in the activity stream, but activity stream comment replies are not showing up in their proper place (as replies to post comments).

    fix?

    what i am saying is that if someone makes a comment to a blog post — and that comment shows up in the activity stream — if i reply in the activity stream, then the reply should also show up on the blog post — and that’s not happening right now.

    i think i found a solution a few years back — but anyone know of a recent way to fix this issue?”

    Blog/CPT comment replies aren’t displaying as BP activity entry replies, but rather as entirely independent replies scoped only to the activity stream. Reply’s do show up, but as new entries entirely.

    Thanks in advance
