Where’s the markup for bp_activity_comments()?

  • Hello, I’m new to BuddyPress and trying to create my first theme – as a child for the default one.

    I can’t find the file that’s responsible for the markup of bp_activity_comments() function – I want to modify it a little bit, but don’t know where to look for it. In the /activity folder in the default theme theres a loop file, a single entry file etc. But activity *comments* seem to be hidden somewhere deeper.

    What I’m trying to do is wrap the content of each list item in the `div.activity-comments ul li` into a new div. I’ve done it with JavaScript (bad bad way) but it causes me issues, so I would just like to edit the file that creates the list items with activity comments.

    Anyone knows where should I look for it?

  • After almost 8 hours of looking into every possible theme file and googling around, I found the markup responsible for activity comments – I thought I would share the info in case someone else will be looking for it in the future.

    Turns out it’s nowhere in the theme files, but in BuddyPress files in buddypress/bp-activity/bp-activity-templatetags.php file. The function `bp_activity_comments` is defined around line 633 and it has a comment that this solution is temporary:

    `/* TODO: The HTML in this function is temporary and will be moved to the template in a future version. */`

    It can be edited there, but I’m assuming it will be possible to do this in theme files in some future version.

    You can also override the activity comments with filters as well, though you’d need to duplicate a bunch of functions to do this.
