    Michael,

    I would request something that would make a huge impact on the quality of the buddypress experience: disabling certain automatic updates. For example, as a user who does not know many of the other members, I don't need to see that Sara and Jon became friends. Nor do I need to see it reported sitewide every time somebody joins a group or registers with the site. I have about 10-20 people joining my site per day. Therefore, it frequently occurs that some great comments are pushed entirely off screen because there are all of these automatic update notices in the activity stream. Can we build an option into the theme to shut these off?

    @dpayne2 here is a solution to block certain types of wall notices GLOBALLY:

    One simple solution is just to hide these notices via CSS. Luckily different types of notices have their own CSS classes. If you view-source the Wall you will see them all.

    Ex: to hide a notice that someone joined a group you could add this to custom.css or your child them:

    ul.activity-list li.joined_group {
    display: none;
    }

    Or, you can hide all of the “mini” activity items by hiding the mini class. That will cover most of the ones he doesn't like. Like this:

    ul.activity-list li.mini {
    display: none;
    }

    TJ,

    That was super helpful! Thank you very much 🙂 OK, now for another question, and since it's related I'll keep it in this thread. What is the rule for what is included prior to the “load more” button? Is it based on time or is it based on number of posts? Also, where would I go in the code to alter this rule?

    TJ,

    One other question, what's included in the list of “mini” activities anyway? I want to make sure that if I use that little CSS trick you showed me that I wouldn't be eliminating anything from the activity stream that I indeed want to keep therein.

    This is really helpful!

    Many Thanks.

    I also want to find out if its possible to make the main Activity the News Feed. Only posts from friends are visible

    I wanted to find out if

    1. The size of the picture uploaded from the activity stream can be reduced to a specified size
    2. The pictures uploaded on the activity stream can
    a. Have a LightBox so it can be made main size just like it happens in the gallery
    b. The picture will be hyperlinked to the gallery.

    Thanks

    TJ … thanks for the update on this. I would like the default on the Activity page to exclude blog posts. I did a custom css as instructed above, but the default on the Activity page loads “Everything” and nothing shows up (in other words it worked as you instructed).

    I would like to default on the Activity page to be “Updates” from the drop-down if possible; not “Everything”. I rearranged the order of the drop-down under index.php, but that didn't work either. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you have lots to respond to. Have you learned what we need to do to control the number of notices that occur prior to the “load more” button? Refer to this post: https://www.buddyboss.com/support-forums/topic/members-wall-page-shows-too-much/page/3/#post-9442

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    @dpayne2 I have requested this information from the developers but I have not gotten a response yet. I will send another inquiry to try and expedite this question that seems so easy, yet so complicated without knowing the exact location to edit. I will look into this again tonight
