    The current version has these options but they need you to enable by using some filters. Adding admin option will remove the need to write code and enable it using filters.

    I look forward to the admin option.

    Any chance of an update if this is in the works or made impossible by the core code?
    Is it a lot of work to try and write code to enable it myself?
    thanx as always!

    Hi Jan,
    Can you please upgrade these two plugins and give it a test

    PS: Please make sure to update the BCG Settings from Dashboard->Settings menu .

    Thank you

    Up and running! Fab!

    Just two, in my view important things:

    I think we will need a setting ( I will definitely for my purposes):

    1. Notification is default.

    2. A way to update all old posts so that they add a notification in the stream for each post.
    A checkbox in the settings along th lines of “apply setting to all existing posts” would probably do it.

    Also, a minor bug has crept in.
    A leading zero is added to the postcontent in the blog overview http://www.example.com/groups/example-group/blog/

    If the text content starts with, say “Hello all” the text in the group overview will have a leading zero before it so the text will read
    “0Hello all”

    Keep up the good work!

    Also curious about how to name po/mo files to make translations work for both plugins if at all possible?
    thanx

    Hi Jan,
    Thank you.

    1. Can you please post a screenshot showing the 0 issue as I am not able to reproduce it it.
    2. Can you please explain which notification? I am not able to follow it.
    3. Sorry about that, It may not be feasible as we have no way to know if a post was posted via Blog Categories or from backend(and since we are dealing with post, I am not in favor of it for older posts)

    Please let me know and I will be looking at them quickly.

    1. http://dev1.housework.se/pictemp/pic.png

    2. Sorry to be unclear. I mean the notification for the blogpost that appears in the group activity stream.
    The one it is all about for us 😉

    3. I understand. oir my purposes it is what I want. Can you perhaps think of a way to add an option for this?
    It is what we need anyway.
    Perhaps you could give me an sql command to alter all old posts?
    … and then have the new posts as default. Many of the posts are created/imported with tags from another plog, and I want
    all of them to appear in the corresponding group activity.
    Am I making sense?
