Favourite Posts in WPMU / BuddyPress

  • Profile photo of Jamie


    Hi all,

    I’m testing a WPMU and BuddyPress installation and would like someway of allowing users to have a “favourite” links page. These would be presented on a single page, but allow the links to link to any post/page on the primary blogs or any sub-blogs.

    I’ve tried some favourite post plug-ins already but they seem to only allow linking to posts on the primary blog and if I try to favourite a post on a members blog I’ve run into problems. I think this is due to the favourite post plug-ins, that I have tried, referencing blog IDs and maybe not user or blog IDs?

    Has anyone done something similar or could you point me in the direction of a plug-in that may do what I need?

    Many thanks!

    @jamieea – you might want to check this one out:

    For it to work, you’ll need to have control over the themes being used for the member blogs (as it requires some code adding to single.php to create the favourite / unfavourite button.

    Possible thoughts on enhancing this into something really special, borrowing ideas from creating and sharing lists of favourites, annotating them with notes, and perhaps even allowing for links from outside the site to be added.

    This plugin does a lot of what you are after as well, although it was designed for external links:

    It requires you to type in a URL from the links page. It would be nice it if had a “pop up” form / button, that you could attach to posts throughout your site.
