How would I?

  • I have a question….

    When you submit a new group, send a message, send a new forum post or interact with the buddy press in any way that is sending data – if all is successful you get a “Successful…” message usually in green some where on the page (or page your redirected to).

    I am looking to replace this functionality with something else. So What I am looking for is where is this code so I can manipulate it, change it, delete it – what ever. – This message is usually displayed after you post a new topic, create a group – send a message…ect.

  • An example is when I posted this message I now see: Topic created successfully” – where is that code?




    damn that’s all bp core stuff. Is there no way to over ride this in a theme? like to say “when submit is liked if the post was successful – do this instead of that” in a theme?



    oh no – the plugin in one would be better as I need to over right the method to not display a message but instead a java script popup that I am interested in testing. But I have never developed a plugin and I wanted to build it right into the theme instead of having a separate plugin.

    I’m also interested to post and you’re suggestion is a big help. I think I’ll try getting into it right now. thank you and I’ll start following your directions.

    Does any one have any blog posts, forum topics, wikis, documentation on how to write or over write a buddy press function?



    @akyleadam what you’re trying to change was the text string “Topic created successfully” into e.g. “when submit is liked if the post was successful – do this instead of that” and the links I gave could do that.

    Take the first link, instead of creating a plugin, you can add this to your active theme’s functions.php – replacing the text string in that post to your own:
    `class PJW_Translation_Mangler {
    * Filter the translation string before it is displayed.
    * @param $translation The current translation
    * @param $text The text being translated
    * @param $context The context for the translation
    * @param $domain The domain for the translation
    * @return string The translated / filtered text.
    function filter_gettext($translation, $text, $domain) {
    $translations = &get_translations_for_domain( $domain );
    if ( $text == ‘Topic created successfully’ ) {
    return $translations->translate( ‘when submit is liked if the post was successful – do this instead of that’ );
    return $translation;
    add_filter(‘gettext’, array(‘PJW_Translation_Mangler’, ‘filter_gettext’), 10, 4);`

    You see where I’ve substituted you own terms with that of the code given by Westi

    @mercime except what I want is:

    When the page loads after you hit submit you are greeted with the success or error message (on any thing you do such as saving, editing…what ever) What i want is to take that text out, replace it with a java script pop up – so when the page loads to show you your new topi that pop up displays to say what ever message i gave it for error or success. I have a nice android based notification popup to do this so it will not be obtrusive.

    This is my end game.

    @mercime also your example failed. I keep all functions I write in a separate folder in a lib folder, and called that custom function via: include_once(TEMPLATEPATH . ‘lib/CustomFunctions/DisplayMessage.php’);

    How ever the message is un changed (the message I was cheking for was: The topic was created successfully

    and I testing by changing to: I am changed.

    This is the ode:

    class translator
    function filter_gettext($translation, $text, $domain)
    $translations = $get_translations_for_domain($domain);

    if( $text == ‘The topic was created successfully’)
    return $translations->translate(‘I am changed’);

    return $translation;

    add_filter(‘gettext’, array(‘translator’, ‘filter_gettext’), 10, 4);


    bump – can I please get some help?
