BP_Activity_Activity::prefetch_object_data( array $activities )

Pre-fetch data for objects associated with activity items.


Activity items are associated with users, and often with other BuddyPress data objects. Here, we pre-fetch data about these associated objects, so that inline lookups – done primarily when building action strings – do not result in excess database queries.

The only object data required for activity component activity types (activity_update and activity_comment) is related to users, and that info is fetched separately in BP_Activity_Activity::get_activity_data(). So this method contains nothing but a filter that allows other components, such as bp-friends and bp-groups, to hook in and prime their own caches at the beginning of an activity loop.



(array) (Required) Array of activities.


(array) $activities Array of activities.
