    You’ll want to provide more details for everyone: what version of WP, BP, plugins, site URL, etc.

    im asking, how to add a post form when you go to a users profile…on you can go to another users profile and theres a post form, wen u write in that post form it automatically picks up the displayed user’s username and ur post will come out as an @mention..

    The short answer is that you take the code that creates the activity post box (located in buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/activity/post-form.php) and put it somewhere into one of the members/single profile templates, possibly home.php. I’ve done this on (though you won’t be able to see the post box without a login). It took quite a bit of playing around to get it to work right, especially to get the necessary Javascript in place.

    I’m hoping @apeatling will post a quick tutorial on how he did it here on I’m planning on writing something up about how I did it, but I’m sure his method was cleaner.

    I wasn’t able to find any new updates regarding this. I am looking to add the post form to a pop up. Is there any documentation on how to correctly handle this?
