Re: Excluding blog post comments from activity stream page?
While this is an elegant hack, it just occurred to me that this is not optimal if you want to preserve an individual user’s ability to check blog comments in an activity stream. If I read the code correctly, it prevents blog comments from triggering an activity update in the database, so blog comments never get recorded as an activity.
