I think you are… but it is totally OK to be concerned when our websites and communities rely on wp and bp working together. Everyone who’s involved in similar projects, like this one is, know that it can be quite tricky to dedicate all of his time to development and that there are ups and downs when it comes to enthusiasm. So no worries, I don’t think that bp is slowly dying.
Thanks guys, both of you have been a real help … I managed to figure it out
My solution was following…
In my template I used a function bp_activity_user_id() which echoed user ID , but instead of ID I needed username or displayname . So in bp-activity-templatetags.php I edited the line 380
return apply_filters( ‘bp_get_activity_user_id’, $activities_template->activity->user_id );
return apply_filters( ‘bp_get_activity_user_id’, $activities_template->activity->display_name );
