Sorry, there was no activity found. Please try a different filter.

I got a lot of frustrated users writing to me, that when they are posting images or videos or something else on the wall, they see this message: Sorry, there was no activity found. Please try a different filter.

Why is that? Its very bad for my site and my users.

    Hi Vinod

    Sorry for the late reply, but I will give you all the details now.

    Like you can see on the image I have attached, I have there added a photo, and when I click on Add Photo, it still show the message below: Sorry, there was no activity found. Please try a different filter.

    There are nothing on my wall even that I have added a photo. But when I click on the “All activity” tab I can see the photo there. And when I click back on the tab “Wall” then the photo is there on my wall. Is very wierd. I will send you my ftp credentials and you can also create a user on MeeWork. Then I will give you super admin privileges.

    Like you can see I have rtmedia installed. It works fine with rtmedia when I click on “Attach Files” Then the photo is showing on my wall immediately. But it dont show immediately with your plugin “Buddypress activity plus”. Will you look at it?

    I also hope you can modify your plugin on my site when you got the time. Another staff member here on WPMU called Ashok has been a great help by helping me on my site. I hope you or him, or someone in your staff that knows everything about Buddypress activity plus can help me with this I am writing now.

    Rtmedia is a very good plugin because it can create galleries for the user. But your plugin (Buddypress activity plus) is also very good. It has a feature that rtmedia dont have. Its the feature that enable the user to post link previews and image urls. Right now my users get confused because rtmedia and buddypress activity plus is both in the comment area. I would be very happy if you could make a little change in the plugin code. Remove the two features that can add photos and upload files. So the only two features that will be seen is the “Paste link here” and “Add image URL”

    And if you can remove the image icon, because some users dont know what it means, and just let the letters be there. I will attach one more image of what I mean.

    I hope you can do that. Maybe it will not take you so long time because you know the codes in the plugin. I really really hope you can do that. It means a lot to me.

    Hi @sorensen84,

    Thanks for your detailed reply.

    I could reproduce the issue on my test site. It happens when we try to upload an image on a empty wall where this message is displaying “Sorry, there was no activity found. Please try a different filter.”. it works when we post something on a wall, making above message disappearing and then uploading an image.

    I have notified this to the plugin developer so that he can look in to this issue and provide his invaluable feedback on it.

    To achieve this add following CSS code in your site using this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack from the menu Admin -> Appearance -> Edit CSS

    .bpfb_toolbarItem {
    background: none !important;
    height: auto !important;
    width: auto !important;
    }

    .bpfb_toolbarItem span {
    display: block !important;
    position: relative !important;
    left: 0 !important;
    }

    #bpfb_addVideos {
    display: none !important;
    }

    #bpfb_tmp_photo {
    display: none !important;
    }

    Hi @sorensen84,

    Thanks for the reply.

    You can change it from the plugin file buddypress-activity-plus/lib/class_bpfb_binder.php on line numbers 118 and 119 but don’t recommend you to do so as editing the core plugin files is not good as updating the plugin will overwrite it and you will lose any changes made in it so instead of this you can use any of following approach to change it.

    1) The most update-proof way to customize text strings in any plugin is to create a new language file. See a good example here:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/front-end-labels-of-appointment-in-french

    You can use a tool on your computer to create your custom language file like PoEdit:

    http://www.poedit.net/

    Or try an online tool like Google’s toolkit:

    http://translate.google.com/toolkit

    2) You can change it easily If you are using the ultimate branding plugin, then enable the “Network Wide Text Change” module which will then allow you to change any text to what you want.
