  • Hi Brajesh,

    I have this plugin installed. Is there anyway to access the stream of recent posts in an RSS feed?


  • Brajesh

  • Hey Brajesh, is there a way to blog one of my blogs from showing up in the widget?



    • Hi Mark,
      here the the modified code for the function "bpdev_show_recent_updated_blogs"
      Please replace the above code with the function's code in bpdev-recently-updated-blogs.php from line 38-60 of the file.

      You will ned to change $my_blog_id to the blog id you want to hide.
      Hope that helps.

      • Works perfectly, thanks a lot Brajesh.

      • How do I do this for more than 1 blog? eg 2 separate ids?

        Thanks a lot

        • Hi Mark,
          I have updated the code.
          Please take a look here

          You will just need to change 2 lines in the earlier code.

        • Hey Brajesh,

          I changed the file and put the 2 blogs I wanted excluding in like this:


          However, blog 304 is still coming through, any ideas?



  • Any ideas? Bump.

  • Hi Brajesh, is there a way to embed this in a page. eg in my homepage it will have show the latest post and the first 100 words or so?


    • Hi Mark,
      No it is not meant for showing posts. Instead you can use sitewide posts widget(comes with buddypress) to show the recent sitewide posts.

      • Thanks Brajesh, I'll look into it. Any idea if its possible to get widgets into pages like that?

        New site looks ossumm by the way.
