Multisite Blogging Update to Main Site Activity Stream?

  • Quint


    Question: If a user has created their own blog and then added posts or comments to their site, will those posts or comments create an entry in the main site’s Activity Stream? If this should work, is there a special setting that will enable this functionality? Thanks!

    Yes, this is standard behaviour with BuddyPress on a multisite install.

    Enable site tracking in your BuddyPress settings.




    Thanks for your quick reply! I created a new site from the admin dashboard and added a post to that new site… bottom line, it worked–the notification showed up in the Activity Stream.

    Another question: I used to be able to create a new site from the site’s front end. The admin bar does not have that menu item anymore. Any other setting to turn on? Thanks!

    I suggest you post follow up as a separate question so people don’t miss it. We tend to switch off the admin bar, so I’m not sure what’s available on there.



    Hi, for the life of me I can’t get the buddypress activity stream to show the blog posts from networked blogs. I have enabled “site tracking” on a fresh install of WP and BP. It seems to work for super-admin, and updates the activity feed whenever I post or comment, but doesn’t do so for other users I have created. The site is a testing site using a spare domain I have: I could set you up with an admin account if that will help? Any ideas to help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance, Jamie

    @quint i think the front end access to that is from the directory page only now (i could be wrong).



    I have the same issue as @jman057
