Awesome Plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Works great. Allows admins to pick what options they want to allow users to choose, so you are able to disable public posts altogether if you choose to.

First thing: styling not perfect to say it mildly. Seems to do the its job except it IS NOT tranlatable in contrary as advertized. Included .mo files does not work.

Thank you...

It's a great idea your plugin!

It would be better if the activty stream or link would not be seen if I chose a function that is not public by default in your settings - possible?

Not a solution for friends-only activity feed
By , for WP 3.8.1

If you're looking for a solution for the common problem of trying to set up buddypress so the activity feed only includes friends and your own activities, this is NOT it. It lacks this functionality in two areas:

1) Privacy in that plugin is set when POSTING, not when VIEWING. That means that if some random person decides to post an update to everyone then I see it in my feed even if I am not friends with them.

2) It only works for select actions, such as posting an update. Things like changing profile picture or adding a new friend can not have their privacy changed with the plugin which means they will show up in everyone’s feed, friend or not. Not really very private...

Great plugin with TERRIBLE STYLING.
By ,

Great plugin with TERRIBLE STYLING. The scrolling was not solved from last updated version of the plugin using the js to adjust the height to 50px:
//fix the scroll problem
jq('#whats-new').on('focus', function(){
jq("form#whats-new-form textarea").animate({
It gets overridden

I tried a css workaround in my twentythirteen child theme(style.css):
#buddypress form#whats-new-form #whats-new-submit {
float: right;
margin-top: -1px;

But if you take into consideration a user with a mobile, then no chance:(((

Another issue It would be nice if you change the privacy name to match those used in Buddypress Xprofile Custom Fields Type plugin Nobody instaid of only me:)

Unfortunately i have to uninstall the plugin until you resolve the css scrolling problem.

Any body knows a good alternative!!!
