Earlier this week, the folks at BuddyBoss released BuddyPress Global Search, a new plugin that allows users to search through every BuddyPress component. The company’s founder, Michael Eisenwasser, was inspired to give back to the project by creating a string of free plugins that benefit the whole community.
BuddyPress Edit Activity is the team’s latest contribution. This plugin is another handy tool that is likely to be useful for a wide range of social networks. It allows users to edit their activity posts and replies on the front end, similar to the “Edit Post” feature that you see available on Facebook.
Once installed, you’ll find a new edit option added the activity meta buttons.
Clicking the button allows users to edit their own activity updates and replies. It gives them the opportunity to correct errors or add to their posts, instead of having to completely delete the post and start over.
