BuddyPress Activity Stream as Blog Comments

This plugin will replace the blog comments section with the activity stream reply system

What theme edit is required?

If you do not use the default BuddyPress theme - you may copy the files in theme/activitycomments/ and drop them into your defaulttheme/activitycomments/ directory and adjust according to your needs.

See Extra Configuration for more.

I have existing blog comments, what happens to those?

This has been taken into consideration and this plugin will display previous blog comments but will REMOVE the old reply textarea box (only is_site_admin may reply in a traditional comment)

you MUST however run this plugin BP Import Blog Activity which tags each blog post and comment with activity stream data. This is a requirement in order to pull in activity stream data on a blog post.

I don't see the activity stream on my blog post

The most important caveat here is an activity record against the blog post - without this - no activity stream data will appear (not even a reply/favorite)

How?

When a blog post (new_blog_post) or comment (new_blog_comment) is made - an activity record is created corresponding to the post_ID or comment_ID. This plugin will cycle over the activity records for threaded comments made and display them in the same fashion as BuddyPress activity stream (ability to reply and nested via the same ajax means)

Why?

The activity stream is a centralized commenting system in BuddyPress - the disconnect on the BP Blog portion may alienate user discussion on your site. This is NOT for everyone - you will lose the powerful internal WP Commenting admin system and will rely only on activity stream for comments.

What about WPMU and subblogs?

I'm not sure yet - if anyone wants to investigate this further - please drop me a note.
