BuddyPress Activity Shortcode

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.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
