The BuddyPress Activity Shortcode plugin lets you add BuddyPress activity stream to any post/page using a shortcode.
With the flexibility built in the shortcode, you can customize as per your requirements the activity list to be displayed to your users.
The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.
