Can’t Edit or Delete a status update post in activity stream

    After posting in the activity stream I can’t edit or delete the post.

    I need to be able to delete double posts from the activity stream, this happens for posts that are posted to both the main blog and a subdomain blog.

    Also, I did a test post to the activity stream and added a link to it via BP-Activity plugin. The link picked up the article I was referring to, but it also posted a subtitle that was not related to the article I was posting.

    Everyone needs to be able to fix their typos (if they want to).

    I had some folks online today testing this and we realized these are really needed – an edit and delete button in the activity stream (to be used by the logged in user/member and the Network Admin). I had these when I was running 1.2.10 but lost it in the upgrade to 1.5.

    Is there a code snippet?

    Maybe could someone tell me what changed in 1.5 that might have affected this? At least point me in the right direction?

    I am having the same issue. I was told it was because my theme is not compatible. Not sure I understand that since everything else works. Just no delete function on activity streams.

    chances are you have something in your theme’s functions.php file causing the problem. what i did was remove an item, save the file, test the site. do this for each entry in the file – it could be something like a spelling error, etc.

    that’s assuming of course that you already disabled all other plugins and the problem still exists…

    To add back the delete button in the activity stream, you need to add the following in your /activity/entry.php template:

    BP doesn’t allow you to edit an activity stream item by default. I assume you’re using a plugin.

    I try not to edit the functions file unless absolutely necessary.

    The plugins I am using are absolutely necessary for the site to function, so turning them off or deleting them is not an option. BuddyPress will get deleted before any of the others do!

    Not sure what you mean by “I assume you are using a plugin”? Yes, I’m using BuddyPress?
    I’m working on adding your snippet to the entry.php page. Still need the edit bit for fixing typos. So far it hasn’t worked … but I could be putting it in the wrong places. Also my activity stream just blew up – which has nothing to do with adding the snippet, and I’ll write it up as a separate report.

    Thanks r-a-y!!

    Hi there

    Am using the Buddypress Activity Stream Edit plugin for edit. Posted on the plugin forum but got no response.

    Edit returns page not found – see http://test2.investoreports.com/alertscentral/activity/edit/15

    Any ideas?

    Regards
    Simon

    @investoreports please start a new topic for your issue as it’s quite different from this year-old topic. That plugin is compatible up to BP version 1.5 and has not been updated for current BP version. Also, you can edit status updates in the Activity Stream admin panel http://codex.buddypress.org/user/setting-up-a-new-installation/configure-buddypress-components/#activity-stream-admin-panel

    Closing this.
