I’d love to see an article on how to customize the core buddypress features. like layout of the activity feed and the profile?

    Thank you! Any questions about that specifically? What would you like to change related to the layout?

Not sure if related to the OP idea, but I’ve got one I’d like to see. I’d love to be able to add a ‘Primary’ Group that a member belongs to, and then have that group display in the div.activity-header — so it would be like:

(Member) from (Group) posted an update… or

(Member) from (Group) replied to the topic …

Would something like that be doable?
