    Hi Adeala,
    Thank you for the question.

    If you are comfortable with code, you can modify buddypress/activity/post-form.php in your child theme(from your current template pack) and add the fields.

    You will also need to hook server side on activity posted action ‘bp_activity_posted_update’ to save these details as activity meta.

    Regards

    Hi Adeala,
    1. Have you dequeued the css or do you need to dequeue it?

    2. Please search the forum for comment count. We have posted the solution multiple times.

    3. I am sorry but for the activity post form, I won’t be able to assist further since you are not comfortable with code. You will need some developer to do it for you. If I post more, It will only cause issue and might break your site.

    Regards

    Hi Adeala,
    since you are learning, I will suggest exploring adding extra fields to form. Then you can use that knowledge to add the UI in BuddyPress Activity post form.

    after that, you might want to take a look at how ajax works and how the post updating is handled. That should give you insight into how to send custom fields with post data.

    Also, when you learn about handling WordPress ajax requests, you will be able to find out the post update handler and add custom code for saving the extra data.

    All the best.

    Brajesh
