Get buddypress username or single activity page

    @brianbattenfeld

    In the activity loop, how can I echo the link to the individual activity item? I don’t want the read more link that shows the rest of the post, and I don’t want to link to the user’s profile. I want to go to a page with just the single activity item.

    If this is not built in, I was thinking I could just create the link which is mydomain.com/username/activity/activity-id

    I can grab the activity-id, but I don’t know how to get the username to generate the URL. If someone could help me out with either of these, I would greatly appreciate it. This has been very frustrating, and a lot of the buddypress documentation pages are empty…

    bp_activity_get_permalink( bp_get_activity_id() )

    activity items do not link to users page, think of them as single blog posts

    I’ve been experiencing the same issues since I started this process over 2 weeks ago. I can create groups, forums and post replies… however, within the group and/or forum or even after going in using the “Activity” link on my sidebar to access the “Activity Stream Directory” page, I CAN NOT do the following:

    1. Post to the text box which is should expand the box and generate a button. Neither actions are functioning.
    2. When commenting on a previous member’s post using the 3 shaded buttons ,
    , member avatar along with an expanded text box should be generated along with a “button” and the instruction
    Neither of these are functioning by design as well.
    When pressing the button, the command generates the avatar, text input box and “button” with the instruction but then it just refreshes the page. Not allowing you to post the comment.

    What strikes me as odd is that if it has something to do with the activity stream files why am I still able to “Load More” activity using the button at the button of the page? At this point I dunno what’s wrong.

    Does it have anything to do with my Artisteer Theme or maybe a plugin I have installed?
    Sorry to bother you guys and again forgive me as I’m just an end user with a little knowledge trying to get the social part of my site functioning properly.
    If anyone can give me some advice or has time to take a look at it for me it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance…

    “I started off with a fresh install of 1.6.2 and tried applying the patches thru cpanel as suggested. First I tried 6326 suggested by @mercime but as @wpte pointed out it was from upstream which didn’t work.”

    Then I did another fresh install along with a fresh install of bb Press and tried 4510 no luck. Then as r-a-y suggested I tried the 6704 same result and finally broke down and just installed 1.6.3. Still no go.
