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:

  • Someone votes my comment
  • Someone follows me
  • Someone rated my post
  • My comment is approved
  • Someone replied to my comment
  • Someone commented on my post
  • Someone mentioned me
  • New comment on subscribed post
  • New comment by followed user

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.

Profile Tabs

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:

  • Comments – All comments of the profile owner in one place
  • Reactions – All comments liked or disliked by the profile owner
  • Rates – Rated posts by the profile owner
  • Subscriptions – Post and comment subscriptions with ‹unsubscribe› buttons
  • Votes – Comments which have been liked or disliked by other users
  • Following – Users list followed by the profile owner with ‹unfollow› buttons
  • Followers – Users list following the profile owner

Activity Stream

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.

Dashboard Settings

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:

I like how well documented the plugin is, especially how many screenshots you made to showcase the features (many other plugins do not do that) 😉
My question:
BuddyBoss shows for some notifications a small icon next to the avatar in the menu (notification) dropdown. I checked your screenshots and I cannot see any small icon for the notifications coming from your plugin – have you in the meantime added small icons to the notifications? Or is it in planning by any chance?

Would be great to have a consistent notification system for improved user experience 🙂

Hi. I would like to know if the Buddypress Integration has a media (star) rating system or it is just for the activity post. Also, how can i sort for example best rated media/posts? Is there a top10 shortcode or block to insert to a page?

Hi Nel,

The wpDiscuz BuddyPress Integration addon allows you to disable each notification type you want. So you can disable the User follow type from the addon’s settings.

I would like to allow the user to directly reply to the forum topic by clicking on the comment reply button (https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/25491233?key=5f722a0092c6fc6fb5d7e7dcbf3adce1). Actually, if he clicks on this button he just will be able to commment the activity. It would be great if by clicking he could reply to the topic.

The new link for the comment reply button would be the direct link to reply the topic : https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/25491342?key=6df01354ef860a0351170ced90f89800

Is-it possible with wpdiscuz ?

Dear Fabien,

I’m really sorry, but wpDiscuz doesn’t have such a feature.

Currently, we have plugin customization and custom addon development services at the gVectors Team. They can assess the work and create it for you. Just contact us via sales[at]gvectors.com email address and send a list of requirements you’d like to have.

On the screenshot it shows the number of unread notifications on the side bar and on a separate screenshot it shows a bell with the number of unread notifications. Is this part of this extension or is that a buddypress feature? i really want that number on the bell 😎

Hi Ian,

The appearance of BuddyPress depends on the theme you’re using. We’ve used the theme developed especially for the BuddyPress. It’s called BuddyX. You can find it here: https://wordpress.org/themes/buddyx/

Does this work with BuddyBoss AND BuddyBoss Theme? Also can I remove the commenting of BuddyBoss and use yours in the place of all BuddyBoss instances? Please give me the developer answer and not the sales answer. I’m hoping so because yours is wayyyy more elegant and just feels better, more professional.

2 years 5 months ago

Hi Bryant,
Yes this addon works with BuddyBoss as well. This addon is designed to display user specific information in the profile tabs and integrate activities, notifications… But you cannot replace the comment form of the BuddyBoss instances, because they are not a regular comment forms, they are custom discussion editors in the activity and other profile pages. wpDiscuz will be available on all other pages and post types.

2 years 2 months ago

As @Bryant indicated above, BuddyBoss would be improved with a wpDiscuz integration to allow it as an OPTIONAL use replacement for their comments. I know companies don’t often like to be interdependent, but such an integration with equitable licensing and IP protection assurances could benefit both companies.

Hola , se puede restringir para que se registren solo los mayores de 13 años? o en su defecnto solo mayores de 18 años?

Hi Ruben,

wpDiscuz doesn’t have any relation to registration process. You should find some plugin for this purpose. I’ve found the following article, please check it out: https://kinsta.com/blog/wordpress-age-verification/
