    Is it possible to change the link when a user clicks on the comment reply button on the activity stream (https://tinyurl.com/y8grpgrn) ?

    I use a bbpress forum and when a topic is published, it is displayed on the activity stream.

    To improve the user experience, I would like to allow the user to directly reply to the topic by clicking on the comment reply button (screenshot). Actually, if he clicks on this button he just will be able to commment the activity. It would be great if by clicking he could reply to the topic.

    The new link for the comment reply button would be the direct link to reply the topic : https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/25491342?key=6df01354ef860a0351170ced90f89800

    Is this possible ?

    Thanks a lot for your help ?

    Hi Fabien,
    Welcome to BuddyDev support forums.

    What you are looking for is the default expected behaviour. It seems you might have the setting enabled to allow comments on blog/forum posts.

    Please visit dashboard->Settings->BuddyPress->Options and un tick “Allow activity stream commenting on posts and comments”

    Please note that it will disable the comment button in the activity stream too. If you want to maintain the Ui, please consult your theme author and ask them to add a button for forum activity even when it is disabled. Also, if they added the button, they should avoid the class “acomment-reply” on the button to avoid the form being pulled via js.
