Support » Plugin: Social » Mailchimp's Social plugin and BuddyPress Activity Plus

  • DoctorDR


    I discovered a conflict with ‘BuddyPress Activity Plus’ – which adds an eEmbed interface for posting links, images and videos within the BuddyPress activity stream.

    With ‘Social’ activated the ‘preview’ function within the BPAP interface fails to trigger – it’s still possible to just enter a youtube URL or static page URL and press enter, whereupon the function detects the link and posts correctly into the activity stream.

    However since this is a BP community I cannot expect users to figure out ways around the error for themselves.

    How would I go about untangling these two plugins – I can’t see anything obvious in firebug, so the only solution I can think of would be hacking the ‘Social’ plugin to only load on blog pages.

    p.s. I am running the latest WP3.21 multisite with BP1.29 and a theme developed from bpdefault. You can view the problem on the Activity page within

    Thanks for your help

  • I don’t believe we’ve done any testing with Social and BuddyPress, we’ll make a note of this and get it on this list.

    would love to see integration with BuddyPress – i’m getting a number of issues using social with the latest version BP 1.5

    – can’t connect with Facebook – Twitter is fine (this may not be BP related)
    – duplication of avatars in user comments

    Is it even supposed to work with multisite?
