    I want to show only status and groups updates!

    This article is super valuable if you plan on filtering the activity loop:

    Using bp_parse_args() to filter BuddyPress template loops

    If there is any of you has a ready code and info about where and how you add it, I will appreciate it…

    To stop “profile photo updated” updates being displayed in your activity stream, try this:

    add_filter( 'bp_after_has_activities_parse_args', function( $retval ) {
        // Convert $retval['action'] into an array.
        $parts = explode( ',', $retval['action'] );
    
        // Remove new_avatar items.
        if ( ( $key = array_search( 'new_avatar', $parts ) ) !== false ) {
            unset( $parts[$key] );
        }
    
        // Convert $parts back into a comma separated string.
        $retval['action'] = implode( ',', $parts );
    
        return $retval;
    } );

    Please note I haven’t tested.

    Wow your amazing…The code works. But is still showing in activity stream: (John) Profile was updated or (John) Become a register member… Is there anyway to not show those either???

    Sorry I make a mistake. The code din’t work… It still show profile updates.

    The code removes updates like “Ben changed his profile photo”. It doesn’t remove stuff like “Ben posted an update”. In the code you’ll see I’ve used new_avatar. That’s one particular action. Feel free to add more by adding another block. For example:

    // Rest of code here.
    
    // Remove new_avatar items.
    if ( ( $key = array_search( 'new_avatar', $parts ) ) !== false ) {
        unset( $parts[$key] );
    }
    
    // Remove another action.
    if ( ( $key = array_search( 'action_here', $parts ) ) !== false ) {
        unset( $parts[$key] );
    }
    
    // Rest of code here.

    To add, I think updated_profile is the action you’re looking for.

    Thank you for your time, but as I said before the code not working even for the profile photo.

    add_filter( 'bp_after_has_activities_parse_args', function( $retval ) {
        // Convert $retval['action'] into an array.
        $parts = explode( ',', $retval['action'] );
    
        // Remove new_avatar items.
        if ( ( $key = array_search( 'new_avatar', $parts ) ) !== false ) {
            unset( $parts[$key] );
        }
    
    // Remove updated_profile.
    if ( ( $key = array_search( 'updated_profile', $parts ) ) !== false ) {
        unset( $parts[$key] );
    }
    
        // Convert $parts back into a comma separated string.
        $retval['action'] = implode( ',', $parts );
    
        return $retval;
    } );

    key = array_search

    I think this is wrong…

    Do you mind doing a little debugging for me? If you paste the following code into your theme’s functions.php file (make sure this is done on your testing install). Then visit the activity stream. You should see some output dumped on the screen. Can you copy that and paste it here?

    add_filter( 'bp_after_has_activities_parse_args', function( $retval ) {
        var_dump( $retval['action'] );
        return $retval;
    } );

    that’s the only think i see different there:

    bool(false)

    @mlao,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. So it looks like we will need to add our actions instead of removing them. Here’s where the fun part begins. You’ll need to find a list of all the action types you want in your stream and add them to the following snippet:

    add_filter( 'bp_after_has_activities_parse_args', function( $retval ) {
        $retval['action'] = array(
            'activity_update',
            'activity_comment',
            'another_action_here_etc',
        );
        return $retval;
    } );

    Obviously, don’t include updated_profile or new_avatar.

    Really, I don’t know why, but is not working…

    I add it like this in my themes faction.php

     add_filter( 'bp_after_has_activities_parse_args', function( $retval ) {
       $retval['action'] = array(
            'activity_update',
            'activity_comment',
            'updated_profile',
        );
        return $retval;
    } );
    

    but nothing works.

    That’s strange, I just tested and it works fine for me?

    Hmm What line you add the code?

    @henrywright

    I added it at the end of my theme’s functions.php file. I’m using Twenty Fifteen to test.

    It worked for profile picture…
    But not for example:

    johns profile was updated

    or for comments

    @mlao

    I did some changes and worked!!!! Thanks a lot!
    I think it was the position of the code…
    Is not working for comments, but no problem…
