This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

BP Include Non-member Comments


By default, BuddyPress does not include comments from non-members (or non-logged-in users more generally) in the sitewide activity stream. This plugin records activity items for those comments.

Please note: the latest version of this plugin (1.2) will NOT work with versions of BuddyPress between 1.2RC and 1.2.1. BP versions 1.2.2+ are supported. Please download an earlier version of this plugin for compatibility with older versions of BuddyPress


  • Upload the directory ‘/bp-include-non-member-comments/’ to your WP plugins directory and activate from the Dashboard of the main blog.
  • If you’re using a version of BP prior to 1.2, you’ll need to uncomment lines 13 and 14 of the plugin in order to activate it.
