Member Profile POV
As you can see here I have logged in as a member. Now, a status is showing on the header where my name “@demo” is written, and there’s an emoji right next to it. Your member profiles will look similar when they add a status or emoji to their profile.
Moving ahead, they need to click on the “profile status” from the menu. Once they click that a settings page will open which showcases all the previous statuses and provides you the option to update a new status and emoji to your profile.
You can add and save up to 10 different statuses. The status plugin allows you to revisit old statuses and re-upload/edit/delete them. Select the “add” button to just save a status for later use, and click on the “add & save current” to update your status.
Activity Stream POV
Here’s how to upload a status on the newsfeed:
You need to click on the icon situated beneath the “what’s new” or posting section.
Once, you click on that option, you will be presented with two different status options. Those two options are feelings and activities. You can choose any one of them to post a facebook-like status update. For instance, you can post how you are feeling with an emoji or what you are doing.
And, it looks somewhat like this after uploading! Share your current feelings with your friends and other community members with this robust BuddyPress Reactions and Status Plugin.
