BuddyPress Activity Shortcode


BuddyPress Activity shortcode plugin allows you to insert BuddyPress activity stream on any page/post using shortcode. It has a lot of flexibility built in the shortcode.
You can customize almost all aspects of the activity list, what should be listed, how many and everything using the shortcode.

This plugin does not include any css and utilizes your theme’s css for displaying the activity. If you need any help, please ask on BuddyDev support forums.
We are helpful people looking forward to assist you.

Features include:

  • List all activities
  • List activities for a user
  • List activities for a group
  • List activities of specific user role.
  • Allow users to post from the page( experimental, if does not work with your theme, please let us know)
  • All options supported by bp_has_activities are available
  • For details, please see Documentation
    The simple way to use it is by including this shortcode

[activity-stream ]

Please make sure to check the usage instructions on the BuddyPress Activity shortcode plugin page

Free & paid supports are available via BuddyDev Support Forum


The plugin is simple to install:

  1. Download bp-activity-shortcode.zip
  2. Unzip
  3. Upload bp-activity-shortcode directory to your /wp-content/plugins directory
  4. Go to the plugin management page and enable the plugin „BuddyPress Activity Shortcode”

Otherwise, Use the Plugin browser, upload it and activate, you are done.

This plugin, specially the posting functionality, is not compatible with BP Nouveau.
I have checked and it seems we won’t be able to support posting in the Nouveau template.
Listing will work with minor regression.


How to Use

Add the shortcode [activity-stream ] in your post or page. For detailed usage instruction, please visit plugin page on BuddyDev.


Runs nicely and displays well – needed to use the ‘Post’ feature so had to add the allow_posting=1 shortcode
