    Theres a plugin which does what you mention. BuddyPress Activity Plus you can find it from the plugins page in your WordPress admin area.

    I’m also publishing a video series to the site right now about WordPress theme development.

    Hope get some people to signup and join in, share their own tips and tricks.

    Yeah I think so, I’ve only ever created on theme using rems and the visual gains were pretty obvious.

    I don’t have much reason to use SVG on this theme right now, but maybe in the future in custom templates.

    @henrywright

    Thanks for the constructive feedback, I will certainly look at increasing the font-size. I’m using px units for measurement right now and would be good to get over to rems.

    So far the members and activity components are pretty much ready for a 1.0 release but would like to get groups and sites in their also, and decide on which plugins to ship with it.

    Also, could you be a bit more specific. Which particular text do you propose is increased?

    @danbp yeah I have it setup for both groups and stand-alone.

    The bp_is_user_forums, no matter what I try returns false and never matches. The plugin template is then used to render the templates BBPress uses.

    I’ll try a fresh install at some point, there’s always something new to deal with.

    @danbp

    members/single/index.php does exist, I created it. It also takes as a valid template. If you use home.php erroneous p tags are placed throughout the page.
    bp_is_user_forums() doesn’t seem to work.

    I think the template names were all changed, https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/theme-compatibility-1-7/template-hierarchy/#single-member-pages

    /members/member/forums/ doesn’t list anything, returns nothing.
    /members/member/forums/replies – lists the topics, although they aren’t replies they are topics started.

    Thanks for reply.

    p.s.

    @danbp Thanks for reply.

    Inside of members/single/index.php

    There’s some logic to serve the correct template.

    I notice at the line

    elseif(bp_is_user_forums()) :

    This never actually runs… It’s not until the “// if nothing else sticks” fail safe the logic matches and the plugins template is loaded.

    So two problems… How can I serve my own template, and inside that template how do I query a members topics?

    Basically I’m working with the legacy templates which ship with the plugin to get started with this theme.

    Also, sidenote… BuddyPress seems to inject weird paragraph tags throughout the inner templates if you don’t have the correct template names in your-theme/buddypress

    Only seems to happen when a buddypress folder exists inside the theme.

    I figured it out WITHOUT looking at buddypress.js (go me).

    You need a container with an ID of BuddyPress for the data to be appended to. (heads to check buddypress.js)… Yes, yes it’s true.

    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.

    @marcella1981

    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');
