Reviews

Smooth and effective

Runs nicely and displays well – needed to use the ‘Post’ feature so had to add the allow_posting=1 shortcode

Excellent plugin

For me this plugin fills a very specific need to show a general activity feed to all users as part of a more expanded page (not Site Wide Activity), and it works flawlessly. Excellent plugin which allows admins to be much more creative with their Buddypress front-end.
