    Is it possible to exclude every post from a certain category.. out of the Activity Stream? If so, how can this be done?

    Thank you!

    @stef78 If the activity items already exist, you can try something like the following: http://pastebin.com/baERuzVQ

    Obviously there are some holes to be filled in, but the comments should lead you in the right direction.

    This is not, by the way, a very efficient way to handle it, as switch_to_blog() is a bit of a resource hog. It’d be better to keep those activity items from being written in the first place. Look in bp-blogs.php to see how the bp_blogs_record_post() function works. I suggest that you hook to save_post (like bp_blogs_record_post() is) witha lower priority, do your category check, and then unhook bp_blogs_record_post from save_post if the post is in the returned category.

    Hi Boon, thanks again!

    Though I’m affraid that my coding skills are just too low to solve this one.
    Thanks for you effort though.
