    In activity stream, posted Updates and replies to updates are excerpted and have [Read more] links. Clicking on the [Read more] link causes the update or reply to be expanded so the user can read the entire update. This works great and is intuitive, what users of sites like FB and many other blogs, etc expect.

    On the other hand, forum topics (bbPress) are excerpted but end with [...] which is not linked to the actual content and does nothing at all. The user has to know to click on the forum topic title in order to finish reading the content. This is inconsistent behavior and confusing to users.

    This seems to be a well known problem with no resolution. At minimum I would like to replace the [...] with something like [...Click Topic Title to Read more] but that sub-optimal at best and I cannot find where the [...] comes from. Actually clicking the [...] and having it take you to the Topic would be better as an interim solution.

  2. Have you considered asking this on the buddypress forums?
