Remove "read the rest of this entry"

  • firewire


    Hi guys,

    i like the activity stream. But sometimes, if somebody posts a long text or a picture I always have the Link “read the rest of this entry” below the activity. Is there a possibility to remove this link and get always the whole entry?

    Thank you!
    greets flo 🙂

    You can edit the functions.php file of your theme to change the length of the excerpt.
    Make sure to backup functions.php before doing anything. And do the changes in a test server first.

    This is the code I just tested on twentytwelve and it does the job (can be refined though).

    Just copy paste the code below into functions.php and change 9999 with the excerpt length you prefer

    function firewire_longer_excerpts( $excerpt_length ) {
        $excerpt_length = 9999;
        return $excerpt_length;
    add_filter( 'bp_activity_excerpt_length', 'firewire_longer_excerpts' );



    Thank you very much, it works perfectly…
    Hmm, you are very smart, so can I ask you another question?

    Do you know, how I can get a “Tags” textfield for my buddypress activation stream? So people can use Tags for theirs posts.
    Like this tags textfield here in the buddypress support forum.

    (Sorry for my English 😉 )
