Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Activity Plus » Glad it exists, poorly built

  • This saved me a ton of time in one department and needlessly cost me time in another.

    Wrapping forms with ugly css classes using JS? Enqueuing plugin css after child theme css? Bad!

  • Are you sure it’s not your theme?
    I didn’t notice that issue on the theme I used. The CSS seems fine.

    1 star? Wow.

    Hi @archonic,

    Thanks for having used the plugin, though sorry to hear you disliked any aspect of it. We’d love to discuss that all with you still if you’d be willing. You can simply create a support ticket here:
    https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/buddypress-activity-plus

    I couldn’t quite see what you mean about enqueueing as the plugin just uses wp_enqueue with no priorities, like so for example:
    wp_enqueue_script(‘jquery’);
    wp_enqueue_script(‘thickbox’);

    If you have ideas for how this all could be done better though, we’re all ears! Is this something you’d be willing to discuss?

    I declared support in my child theme to override issues I was having with the default styling, but I’m finding it difficult to get the styling right. The video preview for examples drops in an iframe which is 1500 x 844. I’m running a fork of the plugin so I have no problem modifying it more, but those dimensions are still proving hard to locate and change.

    Another issue: I have a plugin called Hashbuddy which runs a filter to insert a link for #hashtags. It works fine except on activity plus posts. It could be an issue with Hashbuddy or this plugin is somehow circumventing that filter.

    “Poorly built” is an understatement.

    </div>

    br tags? Are you kidding me? Wrap the images in a div and make them 100% width if you want only one image per line, but don’t use br tags.
