#3963 closed enhancement (no action required)

Have BuddyPress use 'the_excerpt' for posts in activity stream

Component: Activity Keywords: 2nd-opinion


I would like to recommend that BP use WP function 'the_excerpt' for displaying post information in the activity stream. This would allow for predicable behaviour, and allow prebuilt plugins like 'Advanced Excerpt' to give control of post info in Activiyt stream back to BP users.

the_excerpt works on the Post template loop. We can't use this for the Activity Stream.
