Feature Request – View Unbumped Stream

    Is there a way to have 2 streams?

    One would be the bumped stream, the other would be the unbumped stream. I guess the toggle button could be to the left of the tabs for “All Members”, “My friends”, “My Groups”, etc.

    I can see the bumped stream helping existing conversations continue, while the unbumped stream would be more for helping new conversations begin.

  • good question – i would have to look into that. it would be easy to find the “unbumped” activity records just by checking if the activity_meta is not there. but how to pull out the information into a “filtered” activity stream is a different story.

    yes i would also like to do this on my site
    @nuprn1 how could we go about making two separate streams with tabs only on the home page

    It would be similar to how Facebook has the “Top News” or “Most Recent” tabs on your home page.

    @paulhastings0 i was thinking the same thing :)

    @nuprn1, you’ll be glad to know that your plugin has a been a hit on my community ever since I activated it this morning.

    I’ve also had 6 members request an option to view both a “bumped” stream and an “unbumped” stream. Just thought I’d let you know.

    Overall you’ve got an awesome plugin. 5 stars.

    i got it on my todo to research it. (maybe another plugin already pulls out stuff based on the activity_meta?). I could even see a different list for activities with no replies. (but maybe another plugin)

    Any luck researching having an “unbumped” stream as well? My users keep asking about it. ;)

    (apologizes in advance for finding an old thread)

    @nuprn1 I wonder with the release of 3.0 if Custom Post Types might help with this feature request?

    @nuprn1; Thanks for working on an update for Activity Bump. It reads much better now in the stream, and will make more sense to technophobes (who I seem to meet an awful lot!) Only one thing I’ve modified; there are lots of extra spaces, ie., a space + %nbsp + space, so I removed the extras to make it read more ‘English’. Many thanks!

    Edit: After some thought it’s been decided to change the second bump time to ‘recently updated’, as two times look confusing for some people. See http://lincme.co.uk/activity/ for an example.

    @paulhastings0 – i do have an idea to pull out the unbumped and filter it into the activity-loop via the include arg (takes in a comma list of activity_ids – which i could query). As for custom-post-types, i still need to read up on that feature and what can be done within WP (in general)

    @lincme – think i just mimicked the spacing used by the core files but with the filter i have on the content now you can rearrange/change it up.

    @nuprn1 Any luck with an option to show both a “bumped” stream and an “unbumped” stream?

    no luck after trying a few methods, sorry!

    @nuprn1 Oh bummer. I might be able to ask a coder friend to look into this. Do you have any suggestions as to how he might go about doing it? Or any advice about what didn’t work?

    Hi @nuprn1,

    My community is still hurting for something like this. Is there a way that we could potentially hire you to add this functionality (and release it back as GPL of course)? I don’t have a lot but I’d be willing to at least reimburse you some.

    Congrats on the baby by the way. ;)

    @nuprn1 :bump:

    this would require a core hack – so something i could not redistribute within the plugin. i did make a trac ticket
    http://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/2675

    basically, a filter/method to display all activity stream items with no replies. (seems it could be useful to everyone)

    Hallo, one question.
    This plugin only works on the main activity Stream? I like to let it work in the group activity, too.
    Is this possible?

    Thanx and greetings
