User Groups “Read More” and Cover Image Text

  • mbfit


    Hello posting this question again, hopefully all is well and I’m informative as much as I can be.

    WP 4.6.1
    bbpress 2.5.10
    buddypress 2.6.2
    rtmedia 4.1.6

    WP installed as directory in root, no sub-directory
    Tested with no plugins other then the ones listed above.
    Custom theme SweetDate
    No core files changed other than a landing page changed in wp-config.php
    which was this:

     * Change BuddyPress default Members landing tab.
    define('BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT', 'profile' );

    I use bluehost version that has an installed WP

    I’ve inquired this issue with the SweetDate Theme support forum and they told me to ask
    about it here.

    My site is not live yet.

    I hope that these two questions are at the right place.

    I just have 2 concerns:

    1. When creating a Group there is the option to post texts, pics, etc. If it is a long post and then it is submitted, the post comes with a ‘Read More’. When I click on it it opens up to a new page. From there if I hit the back button the post is gone. If I remove the Read More using:

    .activity-read-more {
        display: none !important;

    then the text field is limited to about 30 words. Is there a way to remove the Read More and just have it as an open regular forum where there isn’t a need to expand or have it go to another page?
    I’ve shared images labeled GroupPost 1to4

    2. The other concern I have is in regards to uploading a Cover Photo for the User Group. If I post an intro text and it winds up being lengthy, the text expands the image. That seems odd. Wondered if this is how it is or on my end. Is there a way to have the text separate and not laid out on the Cover Photo? Would rather have the Cover Photo as a stand alone.
    I’ve added an image COVER-TEXT


    I realize the photos are a little small.
