1. Activity Embed
The Activity Embed block let authors embed an activity into their post or page. It’s very similar to the WordPress Embed block except that it is specific to BuddyPress Activities. Copy the permalink to the Activity single view page, add the Embed an activity block to your post or page, paste the activity link into the placeholder’s input and click on the “Embed” button to have it rendered.
Once rendered, you can adjust its alignment and include a caption under the embedded activity.
2. BP Members Block
Use this BP Block to select community members you want to feature into a post or a page. It’s a different approach than what we’re doing into our Members widgets. These are sorting members rather than allowing the author to pick the ones he’d like to include in his custom list.
It looks very similar to the BP Member block at first sight 😉. But as soon as you’ve added the first member, the Autocompleter control will still be available at the bottom of the block. Use it to add as many members as you need.
From the block’s settings you can choose whether to display the user names, mention names, the full/thumb version of profile photos or no photo at all.
From the block’s toolbar you can select the display mode to use : List or Grid. If you chose the grid one, you’ll be able to customize the number of columns to use for this grid from the block’s settings. You can also choose to add extra BuddyPress information about the displayed members. For this grid display, only the information about the last time members were active is available.
When you select the List display, you can include the latest activity the members posted 🏄🏻♀️.
If you need to remove a member from the list, Simply click on the x button at the right of the member’s line or cell.
3. BP Groups Block
Use this BP Block to select the groups you want to feature into a post or a page. It’s a different approach than what we’re doing into our Groups widget. Instead of sorting groups according to the date they were created, to the last time they were active, to their amount of members or alphabetically, authors can pick the ones they’d like to include in their custom list.
Just like the BP Members block, once you’ve added your first group, the Autocompleter control will still be available at the bottom of the block to let you choose as many groups as you wish.
Using the block’s toolbar you can select whether to display the groups in a list or in a grid. If you chose the Grid display, you’ll be able to define the number of columns to use from the block’s settings.
Still from these block’s settings, you can show or hide the group names, decide to use the full or the thumb version of the group profiles photo and include some extra information about the Group.
The List display lets you select any of the available extra pieces of information :
- the group descriptions,
- or the last time the groups were active,
- or the amount of group members.
When the grid mode is active, only the two last pieces of extra information will be available.
Finally, if you need to remove a group from the list, Simply click on the x button at the right of the group’s line or cell.
