BuddyPress Block Activity Stream Types

This plugin will "block" an activity record from being saved to the stream/database. Such as new member registration, joining groups, friend

How do I exclude a certain activity types?

You may scan the bp-core code, plugin code, or attempt to view the types already entered into the database.

How does it work?

When bp-core or a plugin attempts to record a new activity - this plugin will block the database insert (by nulling out the type prior to saving - bp_activity_type_before_save )

I blocked a type but the filter still appears in my theme in the dropdown select box

Certain types are hardcoded into the theme file bp-default/activity/index.php - you may need to remove the html select option

Some plugins may register the do_action( 'bp_activity_filter_options' ) - there is no way to filter these out automatically and may require editing the plugin's core files - remove the action hook.

I blocked a type but still see the old activity records

This plugin does not remove previous logged activity items - you'll need to manually delete these.

I want to block a certain blog on my network from sending activity stream updates

You may hook on the filter bp_activity_block_denied_activity_type_check which provides all activity level data. From here you can provide your own logic to block an activity record. ie, blog_id

I want to unblock a type and see all the old activity records

Sorry, since you blocked certain types from the database - nothing was ever saved to begin with.
