Thanks…now its working fine….i think what I was doing wrong was pasting the code into bp-custom.php through web ftp instead of from WP-admin…

Yes, its working now. 🙂 Thanks a lot.

need more help…I have few more problems:

  1. Buddypress activity says "Mr X wrote a new post" instead of "asked a new question" or "answered a question". How can these be changed?

  2. How can I show the number of questions asked and answers given below user or in the buddypress profile page of a user? (for example… like the screenshot in guide)
    ![designwall buddypress profile page]( "enter image title here")

Thank you

  1. For this text string, you can use Westi’s method,
    • You can add the following code in your theme’s functions.php
      class PJW_Translation_Mangler {
      function filter_gettext($translation, $text, $domain) {
      $translations = &get_translations_for_domain( $domain );
      if ( $text == '%s wrote a new post, %s' ) {
      return $translations->translate( '%s asked a new question, %s' );
      return $translation;
      add_filter('gettext', array('PJW_Translation_Mangler', 'filter_gettext'), 10, 4);
    • Found it!
      It’s actually right in buddypress/bp-blogs.php on line 383

      $activity_action = sprintf( __( '%s wrote a new blog post: %s', 'buddypress' ), </strong>bp_core_get_userlink( (int)$post->post_author ), '<a href="' . $post_permalink . '">'</a>
  2. Please note that the above image is for illustration purposes only. To have the interface like the screenshot, we made some custom code only for the designwall. Of course, after configuring, your front-end is not similar to ours.
    Hope this helps !
