    I can supply you with the zip of the add-on. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if it helps make the product more broadly compatible and/or get me off their back 😉 I’ve had issues of different types with three different themes…

    The reason I persist is that the they have the only plugin that works like FB. You paste the URL, press enter, and the preview pops up. It is truly the most elegant and that is essential to our application.

    The terms blog and post make me suspect that we’re talking past each other here.
    I’m trying to display BuddyPress group activity without using the pre-defined page. That page shows all sorts of irrelevant activity and all I want to see are status updates and comments. I also don’t need most of the widgets in the nav bar and couldn’t suppress them individually or as a group.

    So I was using a separate page for each pre-defined group(there are only eight) and then using your Activity Stream shortcode to display the activity I was looking for.

    It’s all working fine except for the the sizing of header image. The image used for each of this eight pages comes from the featured image. I regenerated thumbnails before reaching out 😉

    What is happening is that the page thumbnail is too small. This means that we effectively get a L/R crop of the image. Then the theme, trying to be helpful with an image this is not correct zooms in until it is wide enough and performs a T/B crop.

    We either need to be able to load a header image for the page that fits

    OR

    be able to suppress the BP activity that we don’t want to see for groups. I know I can try to filter that stuff out in my functions.php, but I didn’t want to to in that deep and don’t know all the needed hooks and filters.

    The folks at rtMedia have also had a look at this issue. They tell me that the URL passed to them is empty they never get to the point in the code where the nature of the whats-new div matters.

    Do you have estimate from your end as to when you think this might be addressed?

    Thanks – Do you have any more info about what is happening to the featured image, when used as a page header? The zooming/cropping really ruins the headers.

    The reason I am trying to do this is that I can use the activity stream shortcode to limit what is display to things that are relevant me – just the group at and hand and only status updates.

    I can’t do this with group activity otherwise.

    But when I make a new page that can house your activity stream shortcode, which does exactly what I want, the CB theme is breaking the image.

    Please advise.

    I have worked around the issue with some css but suggest these options be added to the Theme Styling options.

    .page-header-mask { display: none ! important;}

    You can also use visibility:hidden if you prefer.

    This completely suppresses the mask – across groups and elsewhere. You can qualify it further if desired based on the enclosing container.

    Just for fun I tried replacing the mask with a different one with css. I often change labels, links and other code elements this way without touching the code. But it didn’t work for this purpose.

    BTW – the header, as rendered on the site, is 1350×350, so I expected the full image would fit nicely. It looks as if one of the smaller standard WP image size is being selected and then zoomed and cropped to fit 1350×350.

    Also, I can see that even having removed the page header mask, it is present on all group pages, along with the darkening overlay. There do not appear to be any Theme Settings that govern this behavior.

    The header images for the groups are sized correctly.
