Is there not a list of shortcode anywhere?

    @aksteve

    I have searched for shortcode but can’t seem to find what I am looking for. Either it doesn’t exist, it is hard to find, or I am just an idiot.

    I want to find a list of all the shortcode that can be used with BuddyPress.

    I want to create a dashboard page that has
    A list of members friends
    Recent friend activity
    Recent activity in groups I am in

    Where is the shortcode?

    (Also, I know there is a profile page that has all this in it… but humor me. I just want shortcode info. Does it exist and where).

    There’s a few plugins that provide shortcodes, take a look at the BP Activity Shortcode and also Shortcodes for BuddyPress in wordpress.org.

    Thanks, I did do a quick search at WordPress.org. But thought BuddyPress would have some already built within their own system.

    Nothing inherent within BuddyPress?

    Just so you know, I’m revamping BuddyPress Profile Shortcodes plugin and hope to add a lot of the features to have been asking for, I’ll let you know when it’s ready.

    Some of your requirements can be delivered using alternative methods. BuddyPress comes with a friends widget for example, which displays the users friends. You can turn this into a shortcode using Shortcode any Widget, which will allow you to include it in a page area.

    @venutius Awesome. Looking forward to the revamped plugin. And thanks for the idea os using the Shortcode any Widget.

    Hi Steve,

    My initial version is ready – https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-profile-shortcodes-extra/

    I’d welcome any feedback about the shortcodes and how they work. There were a number of options I was not sure about, for example if they needed to display a title.

    I opted to omit activity and forum shortcodes in this initial release as there are existing shortcodes for these, though in the longer term I do think it would be nice to collect everything into one plugin.

    Hi Steve,

    I took a look at your other requirements, for a “my friends” and “my groups” activity shortcodes. BuddyPress Activity Shortcode does not currently support these features but I’ve submitted new code to the developer so they can support your needs, I’ve made it a doddle to use if it is accepted.

    Thanks venutius, for all the follow up. I will implement what I can and give you some feedback on how it all works.

    I’m chatting to the developer of the Activity Shortcode, he reckons you can get the activity for the current users groups by setting it up as follows:

    [activity-stream for=logged scope=groups]

    He also reckons he’s got a solution for seeing friends activity.

    Here’s the code for the friends activity with BuddyPress Activity Shortcode:

    [activity-stream for=logged scope=friends]

    Hi Steve, just so you know, I’ve upissued BP Profile Shortcodes Extra today with a new Profile Lists options to create lists of suggested friends and groups, those might help with your dashboard? Let me know if you think there are other features to add.

    Can any of your shortcodes display the entire messaging component (compose/delete/view)? I want to include it in a custom dashboard, along with a few other pieces.

    I’m afraid not
