    Activity updates about default album is getting created on its own..for example..

    user created an album 'Wall Posts'

    1) is there a way to edit how this update gets posted?
    2) what is the activity type for this action?...can use activity block plugin for blocking this update..dun wanna block
    'activity_update'
    3) is there a way to completely stop this update altogether to be updated..cause it seems to be getting updated for each member of the website..on its OWN and that is simply inefficient use of my DB space..

    would rather want only actual updates to show in the activity area rather than show who created what album name and what button did they click'...(on a lighter note)

    wud appreciate any suggestions or improvement in the plugin..!..its a shade better than bp album plugin

    Hi,

    This is a little tricky but I'll try to explain.

    All the commenting, favouriting etc for an album, as well as media happens via an activity that has a one to one relationship with the media/album.

    So, for every album created there has to be an activity that we can use for such meta functions.

    Problem is there's no reliable way of hiding activities from the activity stream for a case like ours. So, we hacked our way through to get this working at least to this level.

    Now, we need the activity and we can't hide it from the stream. That's why the annoying update. If you hide or disable this activity, the commenting, favouriting, etc goes out of the window.

    Fortunately, things are looking up from BuddyPress and this should get resolved soon.
