Copy the activity-loop.php file into your child theme and then update line 18 with the settings that suit you using the guide in the link to help.
It sounds as though I’d be making the site much more cumbersome than it needs to be, and it already has a lot of plugins for functionality.
I will test the multi-site with secondary BuddyPress blog one day, but for now, I’ve decided to just try and work within the theme as best I can.
I do think that multi-site, although perhaps overkill, is what I needed to be able to keep my userbase constant and able to log into either site (area), while allowing content to be shared across the network.
Thanks for your advice!
I’ve read that post a few days ago.
My other reasons for wanting to use multi-site was for the shared userbase and to be able to easily share content across the network (both ways).
How else would I achieve this? The plugins that I’ve found are for multi-site…
Also, this post tends to tell me that this is what I need: https://codex.buddypress.org/legacy/getting-started/install-buddypress-on-a-secondary-blog/
Whereas WordPress says that multi-site is very separated and not for shared users. There is a lot of conflicting information out there.
I understand what you’re saying about keeping things simple but unfortunately, the BuddyPress theme is very much orientated towards being a social network and isn’t suitable for standard pages, nor is it very easy to create custom templates for – I have already created quite a few to handle custom post types.
Additionally, the main menu of the BuddyPress theme is an extension of the admin bar, and it doesn’t support a dropdown menu. I could only add choices to the profile dropdown (with profile, photos, friends etc.) which is far from ideal.
