Thanks so much for the blog post: https://buddydev.com/buddypress/set-default-filter-buddypress-activity/. I’ve been trying to figure this out for quite a while and was excited to come across your article! I’m trying to default to activity_update, so your code is exactly what I need. I pasted it into my bp-custom.php file but sadly, nothing changed. Any idea on what I could be missing?
Welcome to BuddyDev.
It is most probably working but may not be appearing like that.
I will suggest checking in a different browser or clearing the cookie and then checking it.
Thanks! I wish that was the case, but I’ve cleared cookies, checked other browsers, and tried mobile all with the same result – it defers back to everything. In the past, I ended up hiding everything else except activity_updates, but I’m actually working on incorporating MediaPress galleries. If I want to show gallery uploads in the activity stream, hiding everything except activity_updates is not really an option anymore.
