    Ah. I understand. I wondered if there was a more fundamental buddypress thing than the visual styling and what-not they’ve created that overrode things.

    This is what’s going on –> https://intothemythica.com/mythos/temple-of-the-rose/

    There should be an activity stream here. Also, the background for my activity feed seems to be bleeding through. How do we get the activity feed itself such that I can have a different background than the main buddypress feed?

    I would like to create sub-feeds with different visual designs that allow specific members to interact, and am looking at the specifics of ‘groups’ versus custom-made pages that can have more Gutenberg and Theme functionality.

    I’m sorry Brajesh, that doesn’t make any sense. The syntax is confusing to me.

    If I used a revolution slider with the name “revslider-story”, with the username ‘peterfae’ how exactly would that syntax play out?

    like this?

    ‘echo do_shortcode( ‘[rev_slider alias=”‘rev slider-story . bp_get_displayed_user_username(peterfae) . ‘-“]’ );’

    I … that doesn’t feel right. Where do I put the single ticks or the double ticks? Do I put the username inside the parentheses? Confused.

    relative to this, is there a way to delete the buddypress database from before 2018 ?

    btw – thank you again. I realize it’s minor code stuff for You (as I perceive it), yet massively important for me.

    Basically, I’m wanting to have a specific feed for Author’s updates that *could* be in a certain category or specific function, which showcases their journeys. If I understand buddypress correctly, it must time date all the entries. So there must be a way to showcase entries in a particular category or group and also in a particular order. What we’re doing here is setting the template for that, so I can work deeper into it with my Authors as we go for a deeper BP customization as time goes on.

    This is SUPER-helpful.

    If you would be so gracious, how do You feel I could solve the challenge of having some kind of feed which shows only activity updates from a user, which relate to their Story, and showcases their normal non-bp or non-specific updates on the regular activity feed?

    Does that make sense? I am wanting to have a Story-feed, essentially, of updates. What we’re going for is a way to showcase a particular feed on the Author’s main profile site. As a Buddydev yogi 🙂 , do you feel this would be best done with a general ‘ascending’ feed (in which I’d have to delete old posts from 2 years ago, etc.), or a specific category of posts that could be linked to the profile feed (remember we want individual Authors to have their own feed/category), and to put the non-update posts on the main activity feed.

    Suggestions?

    MMM … that is working. Nice.

    We’re really getting there. Your help is fantastic. We’re just getting things dialed so this is very helpful for our presentation. I want to get some plugins and premium with Buddydev. At this point we’re just launching so not in the budget *however* this help is deeply appreciated *and* I WILL be getting some kind of a more premium support package as I plan on going deeper into buddypress.

    Question –

    How do showcase ONLY updates on the profile feed? Meaning the regular network posts (like, this user posted on this site in the network and it shows up in the feed) on the Activity Feed, yet *only* BP updates on the profile feed?

    This way … this way only the Story updates will show up on the profile feed, and older network-wide posts won’t.

    How would that be phrased if I used the username – “peterfae” with the slider “peterfae-story” ?

    And could I set another username w/a different slider?

    Wait, how do I set a *specific* slider to a *specific* user activity?
