    I want to customize status updates to fit the theme of my site, to allow users to post recipes. In p2 this is possible but I haven’t seen instructions for doing this on BuddyPress. I am also using pods and would like my recipe form from pods to show up in BuddyPress.

    I can’t really comment on pods sorry but if you want to customise your status updates you can using CSS fairly easily – depends on what you want to do though. Are you looking to style their look in the theme or style them when posting the update?

    I want to have special forms for different types of status updates. with pods it would be a php call.

    Read this topic if you want to add more fields to the status update. https://buddypress.org/community/groups/creating-extending/forum/topic/adding-a-second-element-for-posting-with-an-activity/?topic_page=1&num=15

    But I think a better approach is to create a component.

    If the component can also allow posts to the recipe section, not a bad idea.

    A component will create a directory much like members or activity. url.com/recipes

    On a users page it will have a tab recipes that list a users added content. The activity stream in my opinion should not be edited. It’s a listing of all site activity not individual content. That should be added via a component.

    The BuddyPress skeleton component is an example plugin to learn the complexity of creating what you desire
