Disable All RSS Feeds

  • Hi,
    I am trying to make a fully private buddypress installation.

    I use the plugin registered-users-only-2 to password protect the site, but this only blocks 99% of it. One issue I am running into is the RSS feeds are still public, especially the site wide activity RSS.

    There is a wordpress plugin called disable RSS, but this does not disable the buddypress specific RSS feeds.

    Is there a way to delete/block/disable all the RSS feeds? I would like to avoid blocking via .htacess at all costs.

    I have wp 2.9.2 and bp 1.2.3

    Add the following snippet to your theme’s functions.php: (updated)

    This will disable RSS feeds in BP.

    You’ll also have to manually get rid of the RSS feed buttons.

    There are two ways to go about this.

    1. Use CSS to hide the RSS buttons
    2. Remove the RSS feed buttons via a child theme

    YES! Thank you! Thank you! There was absolutely nothing on this anywhere. This helps so much.

    @r-a-y , hello again, I was also wondering if there is a similar way to disable/remove the favoriting of posts,activity, etc…



    Easiest way to remove favorites is to use CSS:
    li#activity-favorites, li#activity-favs-personal-li, a#bp-admin-activity-favs, .activity-meta a.fav {display:none;}

    This will hide all favorite buttons and tabs (I think).

    right on.



    Thanks a lot – it helped me somewhere else. So simple!

    So I’m a total newb at this and I don’t understand how to disable the RSS on BP. I tried putting the code in to the file you suggested (at the end of the current code) but I’m not sure I’m doing this correctly. Can you offer any help, or some more detailed instructions (in layman’s terms) so that I can make my RSS feed for all site activity go away? I want to have a completely private BP community.



    add_action(‘init’, ‘bp_remove_feeds’);



    Please ignore my last entry, I cannot remove it.



    what css would I need to remove the rss button?
