FAQ

Inline CSS

By default, the plugin uses inline CSS to hide a few elements.

If you prefer to outright remove these elements, read the following:

To remove the @mentions tab from the activity directory, copy over /bp-default/activity/index.php to your child theme and remove the hardcoded <li id="activity-mentions"> list item.

To remove the @user (?) button from the member profile page, copy over /bp-default/members/single/member-header.php to your child theme and remove the hardcoded <span class="highlight"> from the <h2>.

Then, disable the inline CSS by adding the following in wp-config.php:

define( BP_NO_MENTIONS_DISABLE_INLINE_CSS', true );
Where to find support?
