How can I show new activity for groups, per member

  • Norman Cates


    Hi ya,
    I’m new to BuddyPress.
    WP 4.9.1
    BP 2.9.2

    I’m looking to get BuddyPress as close to Facebook as I can. Well, largely.

    At the moment, the thing I’m trying to find is how to show what new notifications there are since a member last looked at a new activity list. And ideally be able to show a list of groups the user belongs to, and a little number with how many new posts/notifications there are.

    I’ve been searching around for a few days now for how to do this.

    I feel like this is probably standard and easy, but I just can’t see how to do it…

    Always glad to be pointed to links of course.

    Thanks for any insight!

    Well, dont know if this is what you need but from what I gather, I would say you need to add some template files to your theme to do that. Its not hard. But Since I dont know that theme, The first question would be… does that theme have a “/buddypress” directory in it? If not you would probably want to make one first.

    This is where you would do the work. BuddyPress will look for template files there first. You would want to create template files for the parts of the theme that you want to change or re-arrange. Both of those features are all ready built into BuddyPress. If you look at the template files in wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/members/single/ you can find all of your ideas and code parts or starter code there from those files.

    You can copy over those files to your themes buddypress directory and break them down, tear them up or what ever you want to do with them there. I sometimes do it just to take code snippets and work with them.

    Anyways, if you find the files that have the functionality you want on them, just take them and use them to create a new template or widget or whatever you need. Its not hard.
