Trunk: No Site Wide Activity Widget 1.1.3: No RSS Site Wide/delete on wire

  • thecorkboard


    When running WPMU 2.8.6 & 1.1.3 two issues:

    1) No RSS for site wide activity

    2) Delete from the wire does not work, shoots up a 404 page

    When running WPMU 2.8.6 & trunk 2208 one issue:

    1) Site wide RSS works, but there is no site wide activity widget accessible from the widget admin

    I’ve tried to mess around with the bp-activity folders/files in a hybrid mix but I can’t get anything to work. I need these desperately for my 3 installations.

    What would the site wide widget normally look like? Where is it? Is it like a template tag?

    I don’t get widgets, don’t use them…

    Activity has been totally rewritten for 1.2. Mixing in files from 1.1.3 I doubt will work.

    The Site Wide Activity widget in 1.2 has been deprecated in favour of a separate template file.



    I’d like to use the features in the widgets, specifically site wide activity in 1.1.3, but want more control over the layout than the widget system provides – see this obnoxious codex page that says you must use unordered lists or else…

    Where/how can I find the code that widgets add to the pages? I’d like to just add that code to my template pages, perhaps via template tags.

    Apologies if this is thread hijacking, but I suspect finding the original code would also solve thecorkboard’s problem and clear up confusion over versions.

    This file contains the Activity widget (BuddyPress 1.1.3)

    This is all in the template in 1.2 so you should find it much easier to manage and customize.



    Great, thanks!

    When I put this in the template

    <?php bp_activity_widget(); ?>


    <?php widget("BP_Activity_Widget") ?>

    I get a Call to undefined function error. Still missing something…




    You don’t have to use an unordered list for your widgets. You can use whatever you want. It says so as well later on in that obnoxious codex article.



    @Travel-Junkie, my current theme isn’t “widget-aware” at all. That’s how I found that codex page. My theme for version 1.1.3 is widget-aware, even though it’s basically a copy of the current one. But the widget looks like a mess, presumably because I didn’t use UL. It also includes a title I don’t want.

    I just don’t have the patience to go through that codex page telling me how I should do html. If widgets are this much hassle I’d rather not use them. I just want the functionality, without any of the layout (requirements). Apparently 1.2 is going more into that direction, so that’s great.



    marked as resolved – moot point now.



    OK, I definitely don’t understand the resolution.

    I used to be able to drag something that said “Site Wide Activity” to where I wanted it to be. Now I don’t know what to do. Will some kind soul help me with small words? Gracias.




    Your question isn’t really related to this thread.

    But to answer your question, the “Site Wide Activity” does not exist in BP 1.2 I’m afraid.

    It should be quite easy to recreate it though using the activity loop:

    I just don’t have the patience to go through that codex page telling me how I should do html

    Well there you go then!

    Enabling areas to be widget aware/ready is really quite simple; as to what markup you want that is entirely up to you to make a balls up of ;-) the page explains quite well how to go about doing your own thing, there are no particular restraints placed on what you can or can’t do.
