  • Hey @dwenaus! Thanks for the help. I will look into wp_ajax_members_filter etc.

    I was having the same issue and saw this thread while researching it.
    Not sure if this is the “best way” to solve this but it worked for me with minimal core change and that’s what I was looking for.

    In bp-activity-templateargs.php goto the function named bp_insert_activity_meta copy this entire function to your functions.php file….rename this function to “fb_insert_activity_meta” or whatever you prefer.
    Below and outside of this function add the line add_action ( ‘override_insert_activity_meta’, ‘fb_insert_activity_meta’);
    Now back to the bp-activity-templateargs.php….goto the function named bp_get_activity_action() and change this:
    if ( !empty( $action ) )
    $action = bp_insert_activity_meta( $action );

    to this:
    if ( !empty( $action ) )
    do_action(‘override_insert_activity_meta’, $action);
    $action = bp_insert_activity_meta( $action );


    This will basically override the function and allow u to change the content there with minimal change to the core as far as I can see.

    Is there at least an eta for the following/followers plugin? Need to know if I need to start building my own in interim or not. Or maybe I can help with coding on whatever is holding this one up.

    Hi @r-a-y, I wasn’t looking for a release version. Was wondering if it’s in SVN or something, because I can’t seem to find it.

    Is this down-loadable anywhere?

    k…thanks…will try

    Basically I just want to be able to remove/hide the @mentions stuff so it doesn’t confuse my users. Maybe an option or a plug-in that turns this feature on/off. I just want to be able to mimic the public profile of facebook with “Wall, Profile, Pictures” etc…..Around 90% of my questions and complaints are stemming from the lack of understanding of the @mentions and the unwillingness of my community members to learn it. This feature is taking up to much of my time trying to train and educate them on this via support emails ect, so I would just like to be able to just turn it off if possible, yet I don’t want to mess with the core.

    Btw….I personally understand and like the @mentions…’s just a huge training issue for me at this time until it’s been baked more.

    Any suggestions?

    Ok Thanks for the help man….I will bug andrea_r LOL

    What i mean is if my root MU install does not have Buddypress ( and I want to be able to create private company social network “subdomains” like and…..both these sites will be totally isolated as far as their user registration, user interaction/communication , group setup etc…..because xyz doesnt trust or want to be involved with in any way abc?

    Great! thanks for the reply….I will try and post back with my findings. But what you are saying is it is totally possible to do currently, out of the box, what i am trying to do?

    Would this allow for the main site to not be a BuddyPress site but the main WordPress MU domain (

    Then when a new blog is created it would be it’s own buddypress private social area, lets say for company

    Then employees from XYZ could come to and register from there?

    This is what I’m trying to do with my requirements I have. If we are looking for the same thing maybe we can help each other and forward the answer to each other when we find it.
