New plugin: BuddyPress Mute


  • Henry Wright

    @henrywright

    BuddyPress Mute allows your members to mute their friends. Muting a person results in all of that person’s activity items being removed from your site-wide activity stream. Some features of the plugin are:

    • You can mute and unmute people at any time.
    • You can continue to interact with muted members. For instance, sending them a private message remains possible.
    • There’s no way of knowing that you’ve been muted.
    • Fully ajax’d buttons

    It’s similar to how you can mute users on Twitter.

    Hey @henrywright,

    What would I need to change to stop the mute button showing up on the members directory listing?

    It seems to be a little unstable on there, If I mute somebody from this page it doesn’t show me the unmute button again? Unless you can give me the code to fix that instead πŸ˜‰

    @mrgiblets do you have a link to your site? I’ll check it out and try to see if I can come up with a fix for you.

    In the mean time, if you want to remove the button from the members directory only, then you can put this snippet in your functions.php file:

    remove_action( 'bp_directory_members_actions', 'bp_mute_add_member_dir_button', 99 );

    Thanks @henrywright, that did the job perfectly πŸ˜‰

    It’s probably down to my css / ajax set up so don’t worry about it, I’m sure it’s not an issue with the plug-in itself πŸ˜‰

    A superb plugin – millions of thanks.
    I have a small problem in my set-up – in presence of BP-Cover activated, the Mute toggle does not work (tested in default twentyfifteen, can pm you a demo link if thats okay)

    I have also posted here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/bp-cover-deactivates-mute-toggle?replies=1#post-6811281

    The other similar functions (or dissimilar) like “Follow” “Block” etc do work in the same settings. Thanks for looking into this.

    Is this on Github?

    Would like to try this out one of my sites.. wondering though, how this comparing to buddy block or whatever it is called? Feature compare?

    Also, this would be excellent if it also could “mute” / hide / selected groups from the sidebar widgets and sitewide activity.. also wondering if possible to hide posts from ‘muted users’ from appearing in the sidebar of sidewide posts when an annoying user has a blog with MU setup and stupid posts show up on the sitewide posts widget.

    /random thoughts

    Hey @djsteveb,

    Would like to try this out one of my sites.. wondering though, how this comparing to buddy block or whatever it is called? Feature compare?

    Check out the first two paragraphs of the README.md for how muting differs from blocking or unfriending.

    Also, this would be excellent if it also could β€œmute” / hide / selected groups from the sidebar widgets and sitewide activity..

    In v1.0.0 of the plugin, only muting users is supported. So at the moment, it works just like Twitter.

    At some point in the future I might expand functionality to mute group updates, and perhaps even activity types.

    also wondering if possible to hide posts from β€˜muted users’ from appearing in the sidebar of sidewide posts when an annoying user has a blog with MU setup and stupid posts show up on the sitewide posts widget

    Right now just activity items get muted. Muting posts is a great idea; something I’ll have to think about for a future release.

    For answers to more of the plugin’s FAQs, see here:

    Hope this info helps πŸ˜€

    @henrywright – I finally added this plugin and gave it shot – not sure if it’s tested for multi-site isntall – or if it should be “network activated” or what.. but I tried it that way, made a blog post about the new functionality.. and then clicked over to “site-wide activity” – about 80% of the items from the past 4 days were gone…

    so I deactivated the plugin and then they were all back.. lots of different people with my install – some were rtmedia picture posts, some were status updates, group updates – just some, not all random people stuff was just out…

    I see on your wp plugin page you suggest bug stuff to post on github, but I have yet to sign up for an account there. I have an article saved on how to git/hub.. but have not jumped into that pool quite yet. So thought I would mention it here.

    I installed budyblock at the same time.. not sure there would be any conflict – I had not clicked to block or mute anyone yet, and was in as admin.. thought I’d mention it.

    ps – I’d love to see a function added where like..when looking at sitewide activity – and there is a “blah in the Group Gross Food” an icon next to any group things that pop into the feed – would be cool to have a “mute all from this group” option..

    Looking forward to more testing soon.

    Hey djsteveb

    Thanks for your feedback! As you say it could be a plugin conflict or maybe even a theme issue.

    Not using GitHub isn’t a problem. Once you’ve completed all of your tests, can you post the issues you find on the plugin’s support forum? I’d be happy to take a look
