Hello Everyone,

I was under the impression that I can categorize activity posts via custompress but I was mistaken. I have created a categories table in the db with the nested categories that I need. I just wonder if there is anyone here that can show or explain some guidance if I were to categorize the activity post which table should I update and which are the php files for it. I noticed that what’s new is in postinfo.php but I am unable to see where the data function references goes to for updating. I do notice that it updates into a table called wp_bp_activites in content under the action activity if I am not mistaken. I wonder is there is a way i can add the action to maybe post an entry to custom post type and maybe i can create some kind of filter to display my category. Or as simple as links. I do sincerely hope that I can get a reply. Even an updated documentation to show how post updates work in activity stream and where it triggers and post information to would be super!! I have been searching for it. Maybe my skills aren’t good enough hopefully some developer can share me some documentation.

    Hi plaincraz,

    Documentation for BuddyPress development would usually be posted up at, similar to development docs over at I think for the moment they’d be the optimal place to get that type of information.

    I took a look into this one a bit and I think the best way to get started with customizations as you’ve mentioned would be to have a look at the BuddyPress Skeleton Component as mentioned here:

    And more specifically, for adding items to the activity stream you could have a look at the following:


    Perhaps that’ll help you get started?
