wpDiscuz – BuddyPress Integration addon is a full-fledged solution to combine and synchronize the comment system powered by wpDiscuz with the user profile system built by BuddyPress plugin. It includes notifications, activity streams, profile tabs, settings and more…
Almost all kind of activities in the comment section generate “in-site” and email notification. All notifications go to the BuddyPress notification system and to the corresponding profile tab. Here is the full list of integrated notifications:
All these notifications are also ready to be sent via emails. This addon allows users to manage them in the new Notifications > Settings Sub-tab. They can choose either see them on the website or receive them via email, or both. Each notification can be configured separately.
The activity of users in the comment sections of your website is moved to Users Profile Page. Users are able to see and manage comments, reactions, subscriptions, post rates, and more directly in their profile tabs. This addon creates Discussion tab with seven sub-tabs:
All new comments, replies, comment likes and dislikes will generate corresponding activity entries in ByddyPress Activity Stream. All activities will be displayed in the general activity page and in the profile activity tab filtered by the profile owner. If you had many comments and comment votes before the BuddyPress and wpDiscuz installation you can simply import old activities into the activity stream using the Activity Importer tool provided by this addon. The tool is located in Dashboard > wpDiscuz > Tools admin page.
Almost every piece of the addon is configurable in the addon settings page. All phrases can be changed and translated. You can find the addon settings in Dashboard > wpDiscuz > Settings > BuddyPress Integration Tab:
