I have a Custom Post Type classified I figured out how to record an activity in the BuddyPress activity stream whenever a new post of type classified is created.

What I am specifically looking to do is either modify the above code or start fresh so that whenever a post of type classified is edited a new activity is recorded.

Here is the inspiration for the original code if it helps



Use the save_post hook. Try something like:

function jude_classified_activity_entry( $post_id, $post, $update ) {

    $slug = 'classified';

    if ( $slug != $post->post_type )

      // etc

add_action( 'save_post', 'jude_classified_activity_entry', 15, 3 );
  • Is there a way to check if the post was updated and not created when this triggers ? The codex is not very clear on the params for this hook. Im guessing we can use $update somehow .. but not sure. I already have it setup for a new post using the publish_post hook. – LumberHack Aug 19 '15 at 0:55
  • You can just use save_post and check status to make sure it's not a draft. – shanebp Aug 19 '15 at 1:27
