    I don’t understand why Buddypress is doing this, but the way it’s limiting the groups description lengths makes no sense to me.
    How can I get it so in the groups page the description is complete?

    I have a description with like 11 words and Buddypress it taking out the last 2 and replacing them with […]

    Then I have another group with a 24 words description and Buddypress still removing the last 2 words and replacing with […]

    I see no reason for this to be this way.

    Did you ever get a response/solution for this question? I’m wondering the same thing!

    Never looked deep into this issue as I was also trying other alternatives. But no, got no response for this.

    Thank you for the followup! What alternatives did you evaluate, and what did you end up choosing? I’ve already fully customized BuddyPress so can’t switch on this particular site, but it would be good to know for future reference. I am pretty disappointed by the lack of support for BuddyPress. Thanks!

    I don’t remember exactly what other options I tried, I finally never did the website I was planning, but I think I tried other “Social Network” type of frameworks like Dolphin (or Boonex) I believe was one and Oxwall and even elgg.

    Thanks for the info! I ended up sticking with BuddyPress with BP Better Messages to address some messaging issues in BP and may add a couple other extensions to address missing functionality.

    @american2020 you can use these code inside child theme functions.php or using code snippet plugin

    @vapvarun, you are awesome! Thank you so much for the handy code snippet!!

    I don’t suppose you know the answer to the question posed in the thread below? 🙂

    Which file to edit – change private group message?

    @vapvarun Thanks a lot. I will give it a try on my next project.

    FYI, @vapvarun’s code snippet worked great for displaying the full description, but I just checked the error log and noticed a zillion warnings to this effect:

    PHP Warning: Use of undefined constant bp_full_group_desc_callback – assumed ‘bp_full_group_desc_callback’ (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/[account]/public_html/wp-content/themes/[child-theme]/functions.php on line 33

    I added single quotes around the constant, and that seems to have cleared it up:

    add_filter( ‘bp_nouveau_get_group_description_excerpt’, ‘bp_full_group_desc_callback’, 10, 3 );

    Cheers!

    missing single quotes in the code :

    add_filter( 'bp_nouveau_get_group_description_excerpt', bp_full_group_desc_callback , 10, 3 );
    should be

    add_filter( 'bp_nouveau_get_group_description_excerpt', 'bp_full_group_desc_callback' , 10, 3 );

    Right, exactly, that’s what I did (per my original note), and no more error messages!
