    You must be using a plugin, custom code, or theme that adds this because BP doesn’t automatically load more. I put a plugin on github over 2 years ago here: https://github.com/bphelp/bp-auto-load-activity
    I have no idea if it even works anymore. You may want to check your plugins to see if you have it installed and activated. Brajesh from Buddydev also did a plugin that did this but I can’t remember the name of it right off. If its not one of these plugins it has to be either custom code or maybe built into your theme. Hope this helps, good luck!

    Because its not as a straightforward process as it should be these are the the steps I took to remove my plugins from the WP repo.
    1.) Send the request to plugins@wordpress.org to remove the plugin using the same email you used when submitting the plugin make sure you state your reason why, be it personal or lack of time to support the plugin etc..
    2.) Log into the SVN and delete all of the relevant php in the files between the opening and closing php tags.
    3.) As long as you don’t update the readme.txt then current users will continue to be able to use your plugin unless the code is somehow depreciated. If that happens then they will have to figure it out on their own or find another solution. If you don’t want even your current users using your plugin then update the readme.txt as a higher version number with the empty php files which will basically render the plugin completely useless when it is updated.
    Dirty trick but it gets the job done! Good luck!

    I can understand you being discouraged about a negative review especially when the user didn’t make any effort at making a support request before writing the negative review. Unfortunately there are “Trolls” that do this just like there are “Trolls” on other sites. I had one guy write a negative review on one of my plugins because it was a “Lite” version and he felt entitled to the premium version before he would change his review. It upset me to the point that I removed all three plugins I had from the WP repo because I felt unappreciated. This is a prime example of how one cheapskate troll douche-bag cost everyone else just because he felt entitled and didn’t want to follow the “Proper procedures” when it come to giving reviews and didn’t want to pay for a premium version. More likely than not I probably won’t place anymore plugins in the WP repo because it got a little ugly and no moderator stepped in to help and it left a bad taste in my mouth besides feeling unappreciated. So you can have thin skin like me and feel unappreciated and pull your plugin off the repo, or you can brush that review off as just another annoying “Troll.” Anyway good luck in your endeavors!

    You can’t define the default component outside of php tags. Try this:

    <?php
    // hacks and mods will go here
    /**
     Change BuddyPress default Members landing tab.
     **/
    define('BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT', 'profile' );
    ?>

    I personally would choose to add it to bp-custom.php this is the best approach in case you decide to change themes down the road because if you place it in your themes functions.php or in a child theme of that themes functions.php then you will loose that functionality if you do change themes. The bp-custom.php acts more or less as a plugin independent from the theme you may use. Good luck!

    Yeah you don’t need the global and I would also change:

     
    bp_is_page( BP_MEMBERS_SLUG )
    

    to

    
    bp_is_members_component()

    Hi Dan @sbrajesh also has a plugin out now that looks to me like it does the same thing as the one in your link and it is also free to download. Cheers!

    As small a plugin as this is I really don’t want to go through the hassle of putting it on the WP repo and giving support for it. But anyone else that would want to volunteer can submit it to the WP repo if they have the time for supporting it as well. Glad it helped you out though. Good luck!

    You can assist by providing your expertise with support topics as I have done for years. We are all volunteers here. You don’t need to have a title of moderator or anything else to help as most users will appreciate any help you can provide. Good luck!

    shanebp already supplied you with what to do but if you would prefer you can try this plugin solution I created and it still works on the latest versions of wp/bp:

    If you don’t like plugins then you will have to write code and place in bp-custom.php preferably which really isn’t much different than having a plugin installed because you will still have to use hooks just like a plugin does, or in your themes functions.php which really isn’t much different or you could edit templates which would be even more tedious. I suggest you reconsider your position on the plugins because it is the simplest method for a closed community. I developed two plugins myself that tackles this issue though they are premium plugins one is Private BP Pages and the other is Private Community For BP. I think there are other plugins on the repo that also provide a closed community but I haven’t tested any of them because my own plugins performs the way I need it too. Good luck!

    I built a site about four years ago using BP and I had implemented some Java type games on it for users to play and compete against each other tallying scores against one another. Not overly complicated but I never thought this site would “change the world” either I did it more or less for my own amusement. If you have talented developers at your disposal that can do what you need then that is awesome but if you don’t then you may have to do the work yourself as I did. Ultimately my host shut me down because it required to many server resources and I couldn’t afford the pricey money per month they required for dedicated servers. Hopefully that won’t happen to you but I am speaking on plenty of past experience. If you want to change the world with your idea then it is going to cost you a lot of cash more likely than not. Good luck.

    Not sure exactly what you meant to convey by your reply but your wrong in thinking a single BP/WP site has tens of millions of users are using this platform simultaneously even on wordpress.org I am not talking how many members there are I a am talking about how many people can actively be on a site at the same time before it bottlenecks. I don’t know Matt Mullenweg so I have no affiliation in that direction and I kiss no ones ass to get affiliation because I prefer being humble. FB is not a monopoly. There is other competition out there other than FB so I don’t know where your info comes from. Not to be rude but do you even know what a monopoly is?

    Wouldn’t it be nice if someone or a organization would fund the overhead so we could really just test and see how scalable a WP/BP site would be when you have tens of millions of people flocking to the site at one time? That would probably never happen but then again you never know. That it my opinion would be the only way to test WP/BP scalability.

    I was simply referring to the “change the world” statement. I love BuddyPress/WordPress and have developed plugins for it and I never said it was an unusable platform. You are right about BP and niche markets that is one of the awesome uses for BP but niche doesn’t take on the bold task of changing the world. I simply believe you should set realistic goals. In your scenario that would be awesome if that was the case but I am not sure BP or WP could scale to the point that if “everyone” was on the site at one time like the BIG social networks it would handle that kind of traffic without major issues. Apologies to the OP if this is slightly off topic.

    Have you considered pitching your idea on Shark Tank? The reality is that you will not find the best developers unless you have the cash to pay them and though you think this is so important that it will change the world which is a very bold statement the harsh reality is that it will not and no one will remember it even 5 years from now. The reality is you need to set a realistic goal because neither you or myself will do anything groundbreaking that will change the world using BuddyPress because everyone knows when it comes to software you need to have something proprietary like the BIG social networks. Anyway sorry if you don’t agree but I’ve seen so many people come on this forum thinking they are going to create the next BIG world changing social network using BuddyPress when the reality is that is never what BuddyPress was ever intended for. Please don’t take offense to this reply as it is just intended to inform you of the obstacles you will face and the limitations you will find if you truly believe you can change the world using a BP site. Not only that but kids play enough games as is and connect with others all over the world using gaming systems already and all this inspires is for the kids to live at their parents homes until they are 40 years old and never have any real ambition but that is just from what I have seen in real life experience. Good luck!

    Untested but place the below code in bp-custom.php

    
    function bp_help_redirect_to_members_page(){
    if( !is_user_logged_in() && !bp_is_register_page() && !bp_is_activation_page() ) {
    bp_core_redirect( get_option('home') . '/members/' );
    }
    }
    
    add_action( 'template_redirect', 'bp_help_redirect_to_members_page',1);
    

    Good luck!
