    I want the user to fill in the recipes for a food item from his profile and in the activity stream it shows something like this:

    User x has posted a new food recipe
    Recipe name: xyz
    Cooking duration: 123
    Experience: beginner

    Comment . Like.

    I want it to look like a normal activity post and not like a blog. Please help me to achieve this

    Hi Arvind,
    can you please clarify your requirement:-

    1. is the recipe a custom post type?
    2. How are you posting this custom post type(entries) from profile?
    3. Have you registered any activity action function for this custom post type?

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh,

    1. Yes the Recipe is a custom post type
    2. With the BuddyBlog and other forms plugin available (buddyforms) we are filling out a form from our profile section and the activity stream only shows an excerpt :

    For example:
    Please fill out your recipe form:

    Recipe Name : XYZ
    Recipe COoking Duration : 60 min
    Recipe Exp. Level : BEginner

    and in the activity stream it only shows like this:

    User X has posted a Recipe

    but i want to see the entire form in the activity stream not just the excerpt,like this

    User X has posted a new Recipe
    Recipe Name : XYZ
    Recipe COoking Duration : 60 min
    Recipe Exp. Level : Beginner
    Comment Like Edit Delete

    I dont want it to be on a blog page but on my activity stream so that members can favourite it and comment it just like ordinary post.

    2.Your Buddyblog and front end editor can achieve this but it requires a lot of tweaking i guess
    3.I am not a programmer so i have no clue how to create a custom plugin to achieve this 🙂
    4.This was the main idea which motivate me to start using wordpress and buddypress. Please help me 🙂
