    @funmi-omoba why post this here if you don’t link to the plugin? Seems a little pointless just bigging someone up in this fashion.

    @megainfo do correct me if I’m wrong but is this not another re-hash of an older plugin?

    You have this line in the readme.txt http://buddypress.org/community/groups/buddypress-wall/forum/
    Why it points nowhere, why are you saying the WP support forum for plugin is really checked and to post here with support issues? BP support does not offer support for third party plugins the correct place to offer/deal with support is on the provided WP plugin support.

    @hnla,I dont remember from where i was past this part of text, but sure from an old buddypress readme.txt plugin and i was used since long time as template file for all my plugins.
    You can check the readme.txt for all my others plugins too.

    I want ask you a question , why some old plugins have a forum support in the buddypress forum
    i mean ?

    @megainfo Those are historical groups before the changeover to bbPress, then groups were automagically created from WP repo submissions as long as something or other was in the plugin header, but since that change those groups no longer function as support avenues.

    I tried the plugin but it didn’t seem to work on various themes. Also it seems some of the same functionality came from @brajesh ‘s post here:

    http://buddydev.com/buddypress/facebook-style-activity-commenting-with-buddypress/

    I would like to see this work though on all themes in the future.

    @bphelp,

    Of course if your try the plugin in buddypress child theme other than the default will not work fine beceause the plugin use the default buddypress template !

    the plugin work with all wordpress themes if the theme use legacy buddypress theme,
    if it is child theme, in this case you must customize the plugin templates by modifying the template files. Just copy buddypress-wall\includes\templates\bp-default folder to your theme and edit the templates.

    A lot of Buddypress plugins present a template and suggest a customisation if the theme is buddypress child themes.

    What an exhaustive way to get “post to someone’s profile functionality”. This could have easily been done using the core activity stream without the need to remove and then replace with almost identical code.

    You can add customized activity items with a custom post form. As for changing Activity text to Wall that is simple to edit as well. Adding custom template files for the activity isn’t a good idea as they can be altered in a theme.

    Create custom activity using this function http://codex.buddypress.org/developer/function-examples/bp_activity_add.
