i found this thread searching for buddypress sharing ….Paul Gibbs i’m with you on how it needs some love this idea of making the activity posts more like twitter does
so there are 2 out of 3 built into buddypress now ….1. comments on activity entry 2. favorite an activity entry (however the favorite item does not show on the users “feed” or “wall” / personal activity stream on their profile page
so what about REPOST (same idea as a retweet) ?
having the same issue …no posting allowed from main site wide activity page but can post from individual members activity page …anyone have a way to fix please?
just to update i tried the tools > buddypress > repair > member count didn’t do anything
as a possible workaround …. nobody on a live site that i know of wants to see a lower member count …my partner is actually very obsessed with this number and will freak when he sees it go down by 1000% …. is there a wordpress query that will display the total number of registered users?
+1 …buddystream used to and is dead now …..there most be a way to get a two way street from buddypress to facebook and twitter hopefully instagram
never mind for some reason that option was turned off on all sub sites
does anyone have a way to do block duplicate posts like twitter?
this is a real problem with members promoting themselves with youtube etc
i wanted to add this to my own question …i’m seeing that wordpress has a duplicate comment check built into it ! that is perfect can it be used for buddypress activity?
ok thanks shane …i hope i can keep things on this service for at least another year … so you agree with trimming activity table are there any others that are safe to trim ? the only thing i really care about preserving are the friendships ..and about 1 year of stuff
hi shane i really appreciate your reply such a relief to hear from someone who knows buddypress cold its a very scary thing messing with the database on a site that is so important
…quick update i actually got the pending friend requests on my own account to display but still is extremely slow ….other than moving the site to a totally new server does deleting is_confirmed field value = 0 seem like a good idea to try in your opinion to speed it up ?
this is not a dedicated server but is supposed to handle spikes its not on a cheap hosting plan its supposed to scale on demand…..really managed wordpress hosting
in general is this friends table something that is going to get out of control if you have 50,000 members?
…i already every couple months trim the activity table … buddypress changed over the years i’m not sure i need to do it anymore honestly but was absolutely necessary like 3-4 years ago do you have people deleting activity table on larger sites still?
thanks for your help on my db situation and how to keep it running

Thanks for the reply paul …. they have never worked for me … i tried switching to the wordpress 2016 theme and then the classic theme to rule out my own theme being responsible …the cover images are there where they should be in the buddypress uploads directory ..but they don’t show up ..any ideas?
@modemlooper would you be interested in a contract to develop the api or oversee another developer …i won’t be able to find anymore more knowledgeable on this that yourself so seems like a perfect fit what do you think? maybe we could start a kick starter type project for this to raise the funds from any buddypress users who are wanting to get an app going ..from what i understand it will be much easier for iphone / android developers to create an app if there is an api correct?
i’d like to add does anyone want to be hired to code a solution that checks a remote cdn server for an existing user avatar in addition to the local web app server where buddypress is running? i’m looking at the buddypress code and if you could include a remote location in addition to the “locally” uploaded avatar directory that might work …. my strategy is this ..i’m offloading the current avatar directories and the new ones will still get added locally …i will then go back and sync the newer avatars with the cdn server …so i need buddypress core avatar file to check both places for existing avatar this would allow me to DELETE the majority of avatar files from my local web server
i know this is an old thread but its top of the list on google for the cdn buddypress avatar search …. @pisanojm did you ever find a solution to this using push origin cdn’s …for anyone else the maxcdn company seems to work with buddypress avatars but you can’t permanently store your files there you have to have them mirrored on your local web server … i have to offload the thousands of avatar files off the web app server …onto a cdn …need to use push cdn like cloud files ..or self hosted with w3 total cache plugin ..any advice would be greatly appreciated!?
this is exactly what i need to do @djpaul any ideas? i tried installing the role scoper plugin but i’m not seeing any permission that would allow an editor or any role for that matter to mark user as spammer ….on a sidenote i found a plugin to add that option back to the admin bar (did mark spammer totally disappear in 1.7?) so that if i can get editor role working they can easily mark spammers from the admin bar
any advice would be greatly appreciated i can’t be the only one facing the issue of having to either give admin access to users who really should not have admin access or just deleting every spammer myself every day
what options are there?
@modemlooper …. now that ios6 is coming …. any chance buddypress will put this fix into the core? i think we can finally get off photobucket as our way of sharing photos yes? and this is a tiny bit off topic but what plugin do you recommend for allowing members to share / upload photos? thanks!
@apeatling this is really bad that buddypress forums doesn’t even work …. its scary i think as it should be working better not worse than our own buddypress sites ….. the forum and profiles on this site are pretty much unusable ..have brought up multiple issues but nobody ever responds ….. just now i tried to go to page 2 of a forum buddypress mobile forum and instead of page 2 of posts i get a totally blank white screen
@jwack it works for up 1.2.10 but says it fails for buddypress 1.5 …. can someone please take this over am willing to pay and make it compatible with 1.5 ?
@Pisanojm and everyone what do you suggest for a site that does not want to live without the following plugins “activity bump to top, buddypress like, buddypress follow, profile privacy” but definitely wants to keep up to date and upgrade to 1.5? these are key features of our community and are currently listed as Fail for BP 1.5 …any advice would be appreciated
thanks @mercime tried adding that memory increase to .htaccess didn’t work … i upgraded wordpress to latest …still won’t activate …tried deleting buddypress plugin and uploading new version ….doesn’t activate
the wordpress admin says “Plugin activated.” after it finishes but its still in the inactive section and no buddypress options
is the only next step to delete buddypress database tables?
any news on this? is there anyway to use some of the work done with wordpress plugin “postie” to develop this? and an upload photos by email function would be amazing like facebook offers…… currently can’t upload from iphone so this solves the avatar registration issue too from a mobile
