CPT activity feed – Change generic activity message

  • deswegen



    I have a CPT “events” that I want to display on the activity feed. I stumbled upon this page: which tells you how to implement it.
    I have added
    add_post_type_support( 'page', 'buddypress-activity' );
    to the custom-bp.php which works and indeed shows a post once I add a new event.

    However, the message it shows is a bit generic (Name wrote a new item) which I would like to change (including featured image).

    In the above-mentioned link it does explain how to do this (changing the text) but for some reason, I can’t make it work. I added the following code as mentioned to my custom-bp.php but it just does not change the message:

    function customize_page_tracking_args() {
        // Check if the Activity component is active before using it.
        if ( ! bp_is_active( 'activity' ) ) {
        bp_activity_set_post_type_tracking_args( 'events', array(
            'component_id'             => buddypress()->blogs->id,
            'action_id'                => 'new_blog_page',
            'bp_activity_admin_filter' => __( 'Published a new page', 'custom-domain' ),
            'bp_activity_front_filter' => __( 'Events', 'custom-domain' ),
            'contexts'                 => array( 'activity', 'member' ),
            'activity_comment'         => true,
            'bp_activity_new_post'     => __( '%1$s posted a new <a href="%2$s">event</a>', 'custom-textdomain' ),
            'bp_activity_new_post_ms'  => __( '%1$s posted a new <a href="%2$s">event</a>, on the site %3$s', 'custom-textdomain' ),
            'position'                 => 100,
        ) );
    add_action( 'bp_init', 'customize_page_tracking_args' );

    Also, in the best case I would like to add the featured image to it which is clickable (exactly how it does it for a normal blog entry).

    Can somebody tell me what I do wrong?

    This is such a nice suggestion ! Not sure if this is possible in current BuddyPress implementation.
