How to make it so users can “re-post” another users update? Like re-tweeting?

    Hello, I was wondering if there was a way to make it so users can re-post another users update if they liked it. I know I read that wordpress is using this feature now for blog posts, which I was wondering if the answer might be along the same lines. I know there is no simple answer to this, But I would actually like to give it a go, If someone could point me in the right direction :)

    Thanks a bunch

  • BuddyPress’ database tables aren’t set up to work like this. It’d be extremely hacky and fiddly to try to do.

    hmmm I agree. I was thinking of a simple work around for the text update at least. I was thinking of simply pulling the text from the update, like say from the `

    ` tags, and auto filling the form, so it’d be like a copy paste like function. Then the user would just hit submit. This would probably have to be done with a little ajax magic though

    I have this on a site and it was neither hacky or fiddly, I’ll add the ability to bp share it plugin but I warn that the plugins next version will require Jetpack

    This is what we have installed on Glindoo.com that is our site!

    Guess for other sites you need to change code and the share button!

    Yes we have the coded ready for our site. Really not sure how to get ready for any site. Anyway, here ther are some impressive programmers and the code looks quite simple, I will ask our programmer if we can set a version of this plugin for any site!
