How to Add BuddyPress Page and Post Comments in Activity Stream

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to display comments from your posts and pages in the activity stream? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add BuddyPress page and post comments in activity stream to display new comments.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s bp-custom.php file:

function push_comments_to_activity() {
     return array( 'page', 'post' );
add_filter( 'bp_blogs_record_comment_post_types', 'push_comments_to_activity' );

Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly copy / paste code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for this helpful little snippet. I am using DCO attachment plugin which allows users to attach images in the comments. With your snippet, I can see the post comment in the activity stream but not the image attached to it. Is it possible to import that images as well?

    Would really appreciate any guidance regarding this.

    Kind regards

  2. A tip is to use the Code Snippets plugin to add such PHP codes for testing.

  3. Where is the theme’s bp-custom.php?
