[Resolved] How to edit items in bp_activity_action

  • embergermedia


    Hello Buddy Press World!

    I have had 2 weeks of sleepless nights prepping our Buddypress child theme. And I have hit a road block that has me stumped after several hours of googling. Hope there is help

    I am changing all links attached to user avatars and displayed user names to a custom link. So far I have been able to do this across most of the theme. The area that has me stumped is the comment section with in the activity loop.

    I see that the info I need to change is controlled by bp_activity_action(). However, I can’t seem to find where this is function is defined.

    So basically I need to change the link structure for the avatar and user name as it is created with in bp_activity_action.

    My child is based on the Default theme.

    Thank you all so much for you help.

    Peace.- Paul

    Hi Paul,

    If I understand your question correctly, you should be able to find some help in the function bp_activity_new_comment(), in bp-activity.php. Look especially around line 752. That’s where the action is put together for activity comments. In a plugin, you can filter ‘bp_activity_comment_action’ something like this:

    `function bbg_comment_reply_action( $action, $userlink ) {
    // Do whatever you want to $action, and then:
    return $action;
    add_filter( ‘bp_activity_comment_action’, ‘bbg_comment_reply_action’, 10, 2 );`

    Good luck!



    Thank you, both!

    @Chouf1: Thanks, but I don’t think that is what I am looking for. Here is an example of what I have already done across most of the site:

    `<a href="profile/”>

    <a href="profile/”>`

    I want to do this to the avatars and displayed user names for every status update and comment post.

    @Boone: As I alluded to, I haven’t had much sleep lately. So I’ll see if I can wrap my head around this with out asking any more questions. But I may be back!

    I do have one more for now though: I also realized that to fully implement this feature I will need to affect: acomment-meta and acomment avatar as well.

    Edit: I just re read what you wrote. It looks like you, Boone, are already referring to this part. If I understand you correctly, then I also need to affect the activity header for status updates.

    Thanks again!



    @embergermedia added backticks before and after your codes so they show up in forum pages.



    @mercime Thanks!

    Was too tired, my eyes missed that line just below the comment box :)



    I think I can be happy for now. This is what I did:


    define( ‘BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT’, ‘profile’ );

    to wp-config.php

    So now every instance of the users name, or avatar, links to their profile instead of the wall. Would the experts here say this is a good, upgrade proof, solution?

    Thanks again.



    That’s the way to do it :-)



    Thanks again @mercime !
