    Hi, actually I’ve already added
    add_post_type_support( 'recipe', 'buddypress-activity' );

    to bp-custom.php in /wp-content/plugins. The recipes are counted in the “member activity stream”, but only the ones posted directly in the parent site, not the ones posted in the member’s blog.

    I think it’s a pity you can’t use a “blog” as the user profile page, or at least give the user profile page, the same kind of customisation as a full blog install. I think this is more a “Facebook” kind of approach, everyone will have more or less the same kind of page, with minimal customisation option (I guess the header profile). But since WordPress already has a multisite option, and Buddypress already support multisite environment, have the chance to use the user’s blog as if it were his “user profile” would have been a huge facility.



    Thanks for your reply.

    Actually what I miss is the custom post type “share” between the main site and the sub blog. I’ve installed Social Chef (I well known theme for foodblogger community). It let’s you write a custom post type “Recipe”. Actually I’ve installed the same theme for all sub blogs and I expected to see, in the member activity stream every recipe added in the blogs (Actually they are shown but not counted, I mean in the top tab “recipe” the count for the user is always 0, even if he had just posted a recipe in his blog, I can even see it in the stream). Is there something I miss?

    Basically what I want to achieve is to let every single post (or custom post) be present in the main site, in order to search for it globally, and at the same time to be shown in the member’s blog.

    Or, from another point of view, I could let every member publish their post from the main site, and then simply “group” every post from a specific user in a kind of “customised” view, like if it where his own blog, with custom background, colours, ecc.

    Does it make any sense?
