Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Activity Plus » Add new button

  • Resolved aaronkine


    I was able to add an icon next to the Link icon. When clicked I would like this button to Enter the text “@Ella” into the text field. Then people can type their question and hit “Post Update.”

    The icon button will say “Ask Ella” so people can ask ANY question that will send a notification to “@Ella” using the @Mentions feature but also add their question to the Activity Feed.

    I was able to add the Icon by editing the “class_bpfb_binder.php” but i dont know PHP enough to do much else. can anyone help?

    website is here: The icon of Ella is the Bulldog.

    Hi there @aaronkin,

    Hope your well today and thanks for your question.

    So all updates should go to @ella, correct? So you already want it to have that in the post field?

    Please advise 🙂


    Kind Regards

    I am very well today.. thx for asking.

    Only the Questions will be sent to @ella. So currently there are Icons for:
    1. Add Image
    2. Add Video
    3. Add Link
    4. Ask Ella (the bulldog icon)

    I will setup a Admin User account as “Ella” so when the Bulldog Icon is clicked the Text field will add the text “Ask @ella a question:” I only want the text enterd when someone clicks the bulldog icon… Otherwise it will be blank. Once they type their question and hit “Post Update” I will get a notification that someone Mentioned Ella “@Ella”. Then i can reply “Comment” with an answer.
    I edited the file “bpfb_interface.js” on line 370. All i did was duplicate the Link Icon code and changed the CSS “bpfb_toolbar.css” to ad the bulldog image. so currently the Bulldog does exactly the same thing as the Link Icon.

    Let me know if you need any other details.

    Hi there aaronkin,

    Hope your well today and thanks for the additional information.

    I’ve been taking a look at this, but can’t see how we can get this to auto add the @, I’ve asked a colleague to take a look at this @ashok and he should be posting as soon as possible 🙂

    Thanks for your patience.

    Kind Regards

    i JUST figured this out late last night.

    Here’s what worked:

    added this to my header.php…

    function ElementContent(id,content)
    document.getElementById(id).value = content;

    Added this to html…

    <a href="#ella" id="ask_ella" title="Ask Ella a question" onclick="ElementContent('whats-new','Ask @Ella a question: ')" />Have a question? Ask Ella!</a>



    @aaronkin, great that you found it. I was about to give you some solution though. Based on your code, you can use standard jQuery format too:

    function ElementContent(id,content)
