  • This is an awesome awesome plugin. In fact, it's TOO awesome. I actually needed to remove the Reply functionality that you had added. It would be useful, but for what I'm using it for, the ability to participate in the Activity Stream will be an upgraded account, so while I could limit the access to the actual Activity page, users without sufficient access rights were still able to participate through the widget.

    I looked to turn off Replys through the settings though I did not see an option to remove this button all together. I did manage to get it done by commenting out a few lines of the plugin code, which will of course have to be done again if this plugin gets updated. Not complaining, minimal amount of work for what this plugin offers. Thanks so much for building it!

    • Hi Wayne,
      Thank you for the comment and reminding me about the issue with reply. I will certainly put an option to disable reply in next update. so you won't have to worry about loosing the changes ๐Ÿ™‚

  • What a great plugin! My question is actually for Wayne. Could you post your php code for commenting out the Replies buttons? I'm a php newbie, looking to make the link to a Forum Topic the only thing that displays in my SWA. Right now I am almost there: I would actually like to comment out the text that appears below, i.e. when a user clicks "New Topic," I only want the Title to appear, not the Content they type in.

    • Hi Amanda,
      To remove the Reply link, just find this section of code below and add in the comment out parts as show around that particular section. Hope it helps!

      <!--Remove Reply Link

      <a href="" class="acomment-reply" id="acomment-comment-"> ()

      • That did not work correctly because of the PHP code. It should start with "" and end with "bp_activity_comment_count() ?>)". Add the Remove Reply Link comment around that section. If you put the code in an editor such as Notepad++ it should be about line 344.

  • ok..one more time…starts with "if ( is_user_logged_in() && bp_activity_can_comment()"

  • Wayne, thank you so much for your prompt reply! I've been puzzling through this for the past few days. I'm certain your solution will work, just trying to apply it to my particular needs – i.e. I don't mind having the Reply link showing, but I want to hide/remove the Topic's Content. Thanks again!

    • Hi Amanda,
      If I'm thinking correctly of what it is you are trying to remove, then you would need to comment out the div class "activity-inner" to remove the content from the activity. I just updated the plugin to the latest version and that activity-inner is located on line 166. Hope it helps!

  • I have installed the plugin, but I can't find it amongst my widgets? Maybe incompatible with my theme (custom community)?

    • Hi Erik,
      No, The widget should not be hidden because of a theme).
      Are you using the updated Version of SWA from github ?

  • I'm using 3.2.1 and 1.5 – should this be working for me? For some reason the widget is not showing at all. They site is http://www.gloggin.com and I have in it's own widget that should be showing on the homepage ๐Ÿ™ Yes, I recently updated to the latest version that should support 1.5

  • just subscribing with this post.. forgot to check it

    • Hi Peter,
      Have you upgraded to the new version I pushed a couple of days ago on the wp repo (v I guess)?

  • It would be awesome if this great plugin can refresh itself automatically to show the current activity stream realtime without someone having to refresh their screen. Any plans for that in future releases?

  • For some reason, users are now unable to "Reply" to posts within the "Recent Updates" widget on our homepage.

    When the user clicks "Reply," the reply window appears properly, but when they enter a comment and click "Post," they see the following message, even though the comment area is not blank:

    "Please do not leave the comment area blank."

    Has anybody else seen this? Any idea why it's happening?

    Replying to posts within the "Site Wide Activities" widget seems to work just fine. It's just the "Recent Updates" widget that is causing problems.

    Thank you for any help you can offer,

  • Hi Brajesh,

    I have the sitewide activity plugin installed on two sites, both of them does not show extended buddpress profile activities. Is there a way for it to show it.


  • Seems like the older version – Version: works for me and does not show the code inside the widget.

  • I just noticed in version 1.1.6 I get the following error when posting a status from the widget:

    Warning: extract() [function.extract]: First argument should be an array in /home/content/30/7716130/html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-sitewide-activity-widget/template-tags.php on line 103

    I do not get this message with version 1.1.5.
