Checking if user has an update or not,

    Ok, what im trying to do is simple:

    ` if ( bp_activity_latest_update() ) :
    then show the update
    else
    then show this`

    basically, it’s for the new users who obviously haven’t posted an update yet.

    i figured it was something simple, anyone have any ideas?

    Im haveing a problem lol. its only working on the members profile page, i want it to show on all pages. Its in the side bar, well, the idea is to show your latest post in the sidebar

    Yeah, without a $user_id argument, it’ll only work on profile pages. See bp-activity/bp-activity-templatetags.php bp_activity_latest_update().

    Try:
    `if ( bp_get_activity_latest_update( bp_loggedin_user_id() ) )
    bp_activity_latest_update( bp_loggedin_user_id() ); //then show the update
    else
    // then show this`

    I’d like to preface the update (it it’s available ) with:
    ‘and the latest update was:

    Wrapping the update in italics and breaking the update from the preceeding “‘member’ was active 3 minutes ago”

    I’ve tried some echos but it’s breaking for some reason unknown.

    Ideas?

    I was able to preface the update if it existed with this:

    $latest_update = bp_get_activity_latest_update();
    if ( bp_get_activity_latest_update() )
    echo “and the latest update was:
    $latest_update “;
    else
