    Hi Guys!

    Dumb question here…I’d like to be able to exclude a blog’s posts from showing up in the site wide feed. Is that even possible? Like I said, dumb question :)

    Edit: Is there an EASY way to exclude a blog’s posts from showing up in the site wide activity? One that doesn’t involve core modifications? :D

    As Far as I know, you should be able to code a replacement widget for the sitewide specifically telling it to exclude from that 1 blog.

    I guess my problem is I don’t really know how, but I’ll figure it out.

    Thanks!

    Has anybody done this for BP 1.1?

    I also like to be able to choose which blogs do (not) get included in the sitewide feed.

    Hopefuly without hacking corefiles, it would be a great option to have in the admin (checkboxes in front of blog names/ID’s, to include or exclude them from sitewide feeds.

    Any input welcome, cheers

    Any leads on how to do this.

    I would love to be able to EXCLUDE certain blogs from the site wide activity feed?

    John James Jacoby mentioned that “bp_get_post_content” filters can be tweaked..

    Any thoughts!?

    At the moment the easiest way to do this is to mark the blog as private. The adverse effect to this is that blog doesn’t show up in search engine results or anywhere else in your BuddyPress installation either.

    Check the trac and see if there’s an enhancement ticket for this yet. If not, let us know this is something you’re interested in and maybe it will make it into a future version.

    Hi John Hames Jacoby!

    Thanks for the TIP!

    Seems like marking the blog:

    “Blog Visibility” (Under Privacy Settings)

    “I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors”

    Removes the Postings from the activity stream!

    ** Since I dont want the Blog to be completely invisible from my users, I have created a GROUP and used the “BP-Group-Blog-Plugin” to make that hidden blog be partially visible and gives my users a Birds Eye view of whats going on in the blog! So its a very suitable work around..

    *** HOWEVER

    ..it would be super cool, if there was a feature that:

    – Allows admins the ability to mark blogs into “groups”

    – Or have users to be defaulted to be in a “group”

    Thanks again and thumbs on the doubling the size of BP!! GAMBARRE!
