Hi all,

I've integrated the buddypress favorites (a.k.a. activity like) function with BBPress. I believe this hasn't done before, at least, I couldn't find a solution. I think this needs to be standard functionality and is nice integration feature between the two systems.

  1. determine of Buddypress is installed.
  2. add an option to the admin area "Forums Settings under "Buddypress Integration", "Enable Favourites"
  3. if 1 and 2 is true add a like button to the bbp-meta area in the bbp-reply-header left and next to "edit";
  4. only show "like" when logged in;
  5. call the resulting function in loop-single-reply.php

See this thread for the "documentation".

@netweb, I will try to make a start to implement it myself, this would be my first contribution however, so anyone who get's the job done quicker, be my guest.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Let's move this to Future Release.

BuddyPress's favorites feature is limited to activity stream items, and bbPress does include it's own topic favoriting mechanism, so there is a bit of overlap and limitation here to work around.

Excited to see if anyone comes up with anything fun.
