    It works with WP single user for me… What errors are you getting?

    if sarah used my code without major changes – it works on single (what i use) but the admin will see all activity

    No error it just shows all activity still.

    Maybe it shows all the activity before you activate and then non after but I’m seeing it all. Also the all members button needs to go. Really doesn’t make sense to have it filter out all activity and then the tab still says all members.

    logged in as siteadmin (all), public group activity, and nonfriend atme @mentions will be displayed.

    That’s what it’s supposed to do.

    Is there a way to set the default to show all activity when not logged in?

    Glancing at the code and I’m noticing that site admins will see everything. If the filter’s not working for you, make sure you’re logged in as a non-admin.

    @gregfielding Yes, you can do that. I’m not sure if this is the best way (definitely open to more input!) but where you see this:

    function my_is_friend_check( $friend_id = false) {
    global $bp;

    if ( is_site_admin() )
    return true;

    if ( !is_user_logged_in() )
    return false;

    Change that last part to:

    if ( !is_user_logged_in() )
    return true;

    Cool…I’m thinking that it’s still best for fresh visitors to see all activity, not just admin activity…i don’t want it to look like there is only one member!

    Thanks Sarah!

    Yeah I thought it was weird to log out and only see stuff from an admin. If somebody went to your site and thats all the saw it would be a turn off.

    I must be missing something. Please clarify: There already is a tab (right next to ‘All Members’) that filters just friend’s activity. So why the need for a plugin to do the same thing? Sorry for misunderstanding.

    This restricts the display of Recent site wide Post widget…

    May I know how to allow the display of recent sitewide post widget to logged out users?

    @sandeepdude According to the desc ,it restricts the display of the Activity stream, which is already filtered on friends if you choose. Still trying to figure out what/why the need

    Mike,

    Yeah…after playing around with this, it doesn’t do what i was hoping. It would be handy to have a plugin that simply auto-selects the “my friends” tab when a user logs is…but where they could still click on the “all members” tab to see everything.

    But this plugin effectively turn makes the “my friends” and “all members” tabs show the same info.

    That’s my feedback anyway…

    So if a non-friend sends an @mention to a user it will never make it to that user or trigger a notification using this plugin, or is it simply going to just affect the site activity and only show friends activity?

    how about FOLLOWERS-Only Activity Stream?

    I noticed that this thread has been done for a long time and wonder if anyone would assist me. I would like to know if there is a possibility on creating 2 streams within the site. One to show site wide activity stream and another to show friends only. Looking forward to assistance if possible.

    yeah, support is sometimes a real issue … anyways, this plugin does not seem to be available anymore – points to a sort of talk talk talk no download page …

    Anyone found a solution how to only display friends activiy stream and not the site-wide activity??!

    Is a very important issue in Facebook times, besides displaying the site-wide activity makes it illogical for people to want to add friends at all … why would they !?!?

    Hey Guys,

    why not hide the “all members” tab using css?

    Regards,

    Boy that would be nice to have the activity stream only show friends + yourself. :) Someone just commented on a video I posted (Which I can’t see since my stream only shows friends heh) and I got an email about it. Clicked the email to see the comment and it shows it under the Members tab. Look forward to this being a feature one day. :)

    I second that emotion @mattriggins. That’s how Facebook operates, one stream with you and your friends, one stream with just you (profile view). I still don’t get why they didn’t build BuddyPress that way in the first place.

    I’m working on a plugin that does exactly what Facebook does but unfortunately it’s proprietary to the project I’m working on and our dev team doesn’t want to share. ):

    Hint hint BP plugin dev community… Deliver one of these as described and you’ll probably make bucks selling it.

    I already have a plugin my friend and it is free.

    I can customize it to your liking for some beer money lol!
