    I think it’s in a core file somewhere, having looked into index.php (inside buddypress/templates/members/) now index-directory.php there’s no specific function call that I can see .

    However you can build your own search form, just make sure you set the input name to be that of “s” and it should work. With AJAX you can look into buddypress.js to see how the devs have hooked up the form.

    Yeah, I checked. This no longer works at all

    <div id="pag-bottom" class="pagination buddypress">
            <div class="page-count" id="member-dir-count-bottom">
                <?php bp_activity_pagination_count(); ?>
            </div>
            <div class="page-links" id="member-dir-pag-bottom">
                <?php bp_activity_pagination_links(); ?>
            </div>
        </div><!-- END PAGINATION -->

    Why the dependency on AJAX? Any pointers to implement traditional pagination? I’m sorta stuck now.

    Yeah, also make sure you have registration enabled in wp-admin/discussion I think.

    @kris35 it’s up and running again, although nowhere near complete.

    @henrywright thanks for the tutorial links, I’m using some right now to show a “minimum requirements” sort of deal.

    Not sure when it will be ready, I’m integrating some bespoke functionality to link with BuddyPress and WordPress so it’s been taken down.

    Also have to think about some sort of mobile / tablet situation as it never had one before.

    I’ll come back here when it gets going again.

    There’s no real reason, other than knowing exactly what my theme is doing and what it’s outputting in each scenario. I appreciate it’s a little idiosyncratic but it’s just how I do it.

    If I do let buddypress.js by default, how would I make it sing nicely with this theme which is shrouded with custom markup?

    Appreciate any help offered, @hnla thank you.

    Hey,

    Yeah you can hide it with some CSS. There is a way you can do it with PHP but I couldn’t tell you how off the top of my head.

    span.activity-read-more { display: none; }

    It’s actually the Site Tracking in conjunction with Activity Stream which allows for post publishing to be tracked.

    I don’t know exactly what you’re trying to do here, but you could first start by increasing the excerpt length to be a little longer. I’m not sure what the default excerpt length is for BuddyPress, however the function below will increase it to 750 characters.

    Place the function below into functions.php or bp-custom.php

    function px_bp_activity_excerpt_length() {
        return 750;
    }
    add_filter('bp_activity_excerpt_length', 'px_bp_activity_excerpt_length');

    You may actually be able to get away with adding that CSS via wp-admin > appearance > edit css.

    Placing it to the bottom of style.css should work.

    *ignore*

    I redefined the slugs via

    define('BP_ACTIVITY_SLUG', 'activity' );

    My bad

    A few problems with BuddyPress 2.1 also, pagination on activity items had some problems.

    I’ve reverted back until I can afford more time to the latest.

    Hey. Its just a custom page template for the home page.

    Its weird it will work if I pass the parameter of type as an empty variable and default to active but wont output anything if its set to newest or online for example.

    @naijaping Unfortunately I’ve decided to knock this theme on the head. Downloads have been made available of both versions that made it to the light of day.

    I’m no longer motivated to work on this design and the heavy codebase is getting me down so i’ve decided to move on.

    It probably needs a day or two of solid work to finish off all of the areas that have been built for the theme.

    Beyond that, BBPress support could be added. This is something I never got round to.

    It’s been a good exercise of working with BuddyPress, but I it is a long process when theming for BP.

    Anyway… moving on now. :)

    I’ve had a few signups since putting this post out, but no one is active yet.

    Would love to get more people involved, I plan to release some BuddyPress tutorials in the future also and maybe build a new theme for the site and record along the way.

    Anybody? :)
