Re: How to disable Wire posts from being shown in site wide activities…

Jeff Sayre



The widget just pulls all activity data from the wp_bp_activity_sitewide table. So, you have three options:

  1. Write a custom widget based on the widget code in bp-activity-widgets.php that does a check for $item[‘component_action’] == new_wire_post and filter that out from the output.
  2. If you don’t want users to have the ability to make wire posts at all, then you can disable that component in WPMU’s backed by logging in as site admin and going to

    BuddyPress > Component Setup > Comment Wire

    and then selecting the “Disabled” radio button. Don’t forget to then hit the “Save Settings” button at the bottom.

  3. Submit an enhancement ticket in trac requesting more fine-grained control over the output of the site wide activity widget.
