BP Add Post Updates to Activity

Description

By default this plugin allows for standard post updates to be pushed to the activity stream. Other post types can be selected in the plugin settings page (Dashboard>>Settings>>BP Add Post Updates).

You can throttle the minimum re-update time for posts in order to prevent update storms and spam.

You can also choose what content accompanies the update – the full post Content, the Excerpt or just the author and title links.
