#2786 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Set activity to trashed rather than deleting it from the database

Deleting activity altogether raises the possibility of unintended data loss. We should follow the WP model of post_status (though it need not be so complex).

  • Component changed from Core to Activity
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 1.4

sounds like a job for custom post types

Something like this already exists in bp_activity_hide_user_activity() which sets a user's activity to hide_sitewide = 1

All we need to do is create a similar function to make hide_sitewide = 0.

Could be expanded though.

hide_sitewide = 0 is used for public things. I take your point, see also my comment in #3099.

  • Milestone changed from 1.6 to Future Release
  • Severity set to normal

@DJPaul @boonebgorges still valid to consider? Doesn't look like the post type switch came to fruition.

I think so, I like the idea generally, implementation details aside.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
