Fantastic Jesse – it works for me too. I was seriously thinking of having to abandon WP/BP and find something else that worked properly.
Do you know how to have old page comments dealt with by the ‘update network’ so that past page comments make it to the activity stream? I suspect that this would be more difficult to ‘work around’ although it’s not essential for me.
I’ve found that somewhere down the line a decision was made to only allow comments from posts into the activity stream.
My comments disappeared from activity because 99% of my comments are from pages.
I’m presuming this change was made to accommodate custom post types. I’d suggest that as these types of decision can sink the entire reason for a BP installation (in some cases) that they should be made with some thought or perhaps even a community vote?
Can BP make this an OPTION in the next version please?
Perhaps there should be an option to include or exclude each of the standard wp custom types on installation?
Where can I download earlier versions of Buddypress?
Where are earlier version of BP kept? I’d like to revert back to an older version while waiting for this to be fixed. OR does anyone have a quick fix for this issue?
I’ve registered this as a buddypress bug in Activity!!!
I’m having the same problem, no blog comments showing up in the Activity Stream. I’ve updated two WPMS sites on the same server to latest WP and BP out of three the two updated don’t work the old still does. Reverted to Default theme, delete all plugins doesn’t make any difference.
Another ‘symptom’. One the primary site and one blog that I’ve checked I cannot move (drag) or open widgets. Which I think implies a JS problem?
I’m having the same problem. After updating to the latest BP (1.6.2) I’m not getting comments from blogs appearing in the activity stream or profiles either. I’m using the default theme with nothing changed. I’m also getting the ‘weird’ blank screen when adding an update directly to the activity stream. It has added the update to the activity stream – it’s there when you redisplay the activity page.
I’ve updated the ‘network’ a couple of times – it makes no difference.
I did update from an old WP version 3.2 (I think) to 3.5 in one go – not sure if that would make a difference? It seems to be the same for me (Admin) as well as for all members on all blogs no matter what ‘role’ they have.
It seems to me that from the update point comments are not being ‘saved’ to the activity stream.
Has she not updated this in the mean time? I’m using the latest version on a BP install and it all works great (I’ve changed it’s presentation a lot).
I’ve used WP for years too and when I switched to WPMU and BB as a community the username default setup does not go down well. I’ve only a small number of registered only users and I set their display names to their name manually with each new registration (with less than 20 users that’s doable). Looking through my entire BB install I cannot find any username mentioned. So, maybe a plugin to automatically make users display name their first name (or first+second) would work for you? The @mention should also use the display name too else it’s probably unusable in a community space. Real people – real names. I paid to have BB chat component work with ‘display’ names for the same reason else some of my users would not know who they were chatting with.
