Buddypress seems to have recently changed and stopped putting comments from pages into the Activity. Which has left me high and dry because it killed my Activity from all the page / articles within my MS site.
Having left a ‘How to’ entry on the buddypress forum for a few weeks / months without any feedback on how to address this problem then one of my primary reasons of joining WPMU Dev was to get the comments indexer that I quote ‘Indexes ALL comments’ across the next work.
Using the Live Stream widget set to deliver ‘Comments’ only it doesn’t seem to present comments from pages. It bizarrely DOES present comments from ‘wiki’ pages with this setting. It does present comments from pages if you select to have delivered All Activity.
With ALL activity it does deliver page comments it also delivers posts but not new ‘pages’.
Is it possible to;
1) Allow page comments to be added to the stream as comments?
2) Allow pages to be added to the stream (maybe selectively)?
3) and / or can anyone let me know if there is a code ‘snippet’ or a plugin that will add pages and page comments to the buddypress activity stream.
There seems to be a gap in the software and in thinking. I can appreciate that ‘pages’ will have many people thinking in terms of ‘About’ or ‘Contact’ or ‘Terms’ or ‘Products’ in terms of ‘pages’. However, in my terms ‘Pages’ when presented as ‘Articles’ in a defined order i.e. more in terms of what some might think of as a CMS presentation then these types of ‘Pages’ as ‘Articles’ are way more important than ‘Posts’, at least they are for me.
