Reviews

activity filter option

Hi, Thanks for you’re plugin,
I use this function to remove some activities update

function bpfr_activity_types( $retval ) {
	// comment line to disable optiopns
    $retval['action'] = array(        
    'activity_comment',
    'activity_update',
    'created_group',
    'friendship_created',
    'joined_group',
    'last_activity',
    //'new_avatar',
    'new_blog_comment',
    'new_blog_post',
    //'new_member',
    'updated_profile'        
    );
 
    return $retval;
}
add_filter( 'bp_after_has_activities_parse_args', 'bpfr_activity_types' );

but all shared activities disappears, to show shared activities it’s necessary to add ‘bp_activity_share’ to the function, it’s the plugin option.

like that

function bpfr_activity_types( $retval ) {
	// comment line to disable optiopns
    $retval['action'] = array(        
    'activity_comment',
    'activity_update',
    'created_group',
    'friendship_created',
    'joined_group',
    'last_activity',
    //'new_avatar',
    'new_blog_comment',
    'new_blog_post',
    //'new_member',
    'updated_profile' 
    'bp_activity_share'    
    );
 
    return $retval;
}
add_filter( 'bp_after_has_activities_parse_args', 'bpfr_activity_types' );

About time.

Gee, people like myself have only been needing something like this for years for sharing internal content on our buddypress streams. A lot of us have private community sites that have nothing to do with facebook and sharing to that platform is not what we’re after. It’s almost been a “who’s on first” situation with even trying to search for a plugin like this. Typing “wordpress sharing plugin” into anything anywhere returns nothing but plugins to share TO facebook, twitter, etc., everything but you’re own site. Very glad the two developers teamed up to get this out there for the community. Thanks!

If I could suggest a feature that seems to be missing/working incorrectly, embeds. Embedded content such as YouTube link shares, certain media (another user pointed out mediapress content only showing links), etc. is not working as it should currently. Add that feature plus shares from Site Posts, Pages, and I know it would be a lot to ask but in a woocommerce vendor situation, sharing of stores and products would be amazing!

This plugin is on the way to being an MVP for buddypress users wanting a real social network with all the bells and whistles which means sharing internal content internally.

Great plugin! Mediapress Support?

Hi! Thank you for that great plugin! But when I’m sharing an activity having a Mediapress media in, only the text is shared and not the media… Would it be possible to make it compatible with Mediapress like you did with RT Media?
Thx!
