Modifying "most active" widget for group-specific content

    I’m trying to modify the various “most/recently active” topics/documents/etc widgets to display content from a specific group. It seems like it should be pretty straightforward to implement some kind of conditional statement i.e. “if document is associated with this group, display, if not, do nothing.” Currently I’m looking at the BuddyPress Docs Wiki “Most Active Wiki Pages” widget, mirrored below.

    I’m familiar with the bp_docs_get_associated_group_id() function, and looking at the bp_docs_has_docs() function, there appears to be some sort of built-in $d_group_id identifier, but I can’t figure out how to use them in this context. I have a Java background and this is my first foray into PHP. Any help or pointers about how to implement this is appreciated. I first tried to put a conditional in around line 55, but found myself lost regarding how, or on what object to call any kind of get_doc_id function.

    Thanks.
