[resolved] [Plugin: BuddyPress Portfolio] Gender Pronouns in Activity Feed (7 posts)

    Hi! I was wondering if in the future versions you would consider using gender-unspecific pronouns like "their."

    My site's target audience is women, so it's a little weird to see statements like, "Angela created a new project in HIS portfolio."

    Thanks for your consideration!

  2. Is it a plug-in generating that activity feed? If so, which one? Please provide a link to the plug-in if possible. Thanks!

  3. Ah - I think it's Buddypress, right? If so, you might want to make the suggestion over in their forum:

    Oops, somehow I posted in the general forum instead of the specific plugin forum. The plugin I'm writing about is BuddyPress Portfolio.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

  5. No worries at all! I added the appropriate tags to this thread to tie it to that plug-in, so hopefully the developers will spot it more easily now.


  6. I took a look at the plug-in myself and just wanted to let you know where you could revise the wording yourself, if you wanted. Of course the change will be overwritten the next time you update the plug-in, but if you make a note of it, it shouldn't take too long.

    Change "his" to whatever you want:

    'action' => apply_filters( 'bp_edit_portfolio_activity_action', sprintf( __( '%s edited the <strong>%s</strong> project in his %s', 'bp-portfolio' ), $user_link, $title, $user_portfolio_link ), $user_link, $title, $user_portfolio_link ),

    Thank you so much, Zoonini. That is so thoughtful of you to do so! The change worked perfectly!
