Where do you put this piece of code?


@shuffless You add this code to the file bp-custom.php in the /wp-content/plugins/ folder

Also - if I didn't want to disable the comments... how would I do that?


Thank you so much. I looked for this for hours, days even. Buddypress is a great piece of code for the most part but omg trying to find info on how to manipulate it is ridiculous.
