#7321 closed enhancement (fixed)

Make hard-coded activity excerpt length a filterable function

Reported by: slaffik's profile slaFFik Owned by: boonebgorges's profile boonebgorges
Milestone: 2.8 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Activity Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch


Currently there are 2 places:

// bp-activity/bp-activity-filters.php
$excerpt_length = apply_filters( 'bp_activity_excerpt_length', 358 );
// bp-activity/bp-activity-template.php
$latest_update = apply_filters( 'bp_get_activity_latest_update_excerpt', trim( strip_tags( bp_create_excerpt( $update['content'], 358 ) ) ), $user_id );

I propose to create bp_activity_get_excerpt_length(), with bp_activity_excerpt_length filter in it.

function bp_activity_get_excerpt_length() {
    return apply_filters( 'bp_activity_excerpt_length', 358 );

And the 1st usage will be changed to a direct function usage without filters, and the second to this:

$latest_update = apply_filters( 
    trim( strip_tags( bp_create_excerpt( $update['content'], bp_activity_get_excerpt_length() ) ) ),

Hi @sanket.parmar
Thanks for the patch, we'll look at it as soon as we can.

Just a tip - when you add a patch onto a ticket, please leave a comment, too. Most people don't receive a email notification about a change on a Trac ticket, unless a comment is also left.

@sanket.parmar Thanks for the excellent patch! The one change I'll make is this: the @since version on the filter documentation shouldn't change to 2.8.0, since it's the same filter name as we introduced in 1.5.0.

Surely. I'll keep that tip in mind from next time.

Thank you.

Yes, it is the same filter. Thanks for pointing this out. :)
