#5522 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Make hidden activity visible to buddypress admin in frontend

Same issue with ticket #5428 but also for buddypress administrator.
Currently the buddypress administrator can't see in the activity page, activities marked as private ex.from private or hidden groups.
I have a suggestion for that, but I'm not sure if it is OK (thats why I don't attach it as file).
Is the approach to add the following into bp_activity_classes.php line 317, correct or will it cause other problems?

 if ( bp_current_user_can( 'bp_moderate' ) ) {
            $show_hidden = true ;

Thanks in advance

Hi Lena,

Actually the Administrator can see all activities in WordPress Administration > Activity. As #5428 is an enhancement, i think we can consider your ticket as a new enhancement too.

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.
