    Hello lomaymi,

    I hope you are doing well today!

    I can’t reproduce the same on my sandbox site, would you please post here a screencast with this issue so I could try to replicate it?

    Please advise,

    Cheers,
    Nastia

    Hello Nastia. Thanks for reply.

    Here is a screencast video of the problem. Would like to point out that I’m currently running the site on localhost, but I’m able to post other links without the error shown in video.

    Hello lomaymi,

    Thank you for posting the screencast here.

    I can reproduce the same on my site. However, this is not the issue with the BuddyPress Activity Plus plugin; it seems that the sites you posted above doesn’t allow to any WordPress plugins to access their content.

    This technique usually implemented to stop others from stealing site content. Apparently they use other plugins like ScrapeBreaker etc. to prevent sharing their content on other WordPress sites.

    Unfortunately, in this situation we can’t provide a solution since the site’s owners wish to prevent their content from being scrapped.

    I hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Nastia
