Adding rtMedia updates to activity show dropdown

Notes: Starting version 4.2.1, this functionality does not require a filter as this code has been moved to rtMedia Core

If you want to add or rename rtMedia updates in activity’s show dropdown, use the following piece of code in your function.php file:

add_filter('bp_get_activity_show_filters_options', 'add_media_show_filter', 10, 2);

function add_media_show_filter( $filters, $context ){
    $filters['rtmedia_update'] = 'rtMedia Updates';
    return $filters;


Use this code: if you are using old buddypress templates in your theme.

add_action( 'bp_activity_filter_options', 'rtmedia_update_filter' );

function rtmedia_update_filter() {
    echo '<option value="rtmedia_update">rtMedia Updates</option>';
