 Hi ronia,

 I realize i completely misunderstood your ticket!!! I'm really sorry.

 Correct me if i'm wrong but your point is to be able to favorite a
 'new_blog_post' activity directly from the post itself. I think the fact
 you were mentioning comment made me reply in a bad way.

 I agree with you. I've worked on it today. I think it can be a good way to
 make the blogs component even more attractive.

 Here's a screenshot of how it could look like :

 In 5610.patch i've built something that we can easily transform into a
 plugin if we don't think it's a core feature. I think it's a really nice
 feature & if combined with #5644 we could build something very interesting
 for a community : the members would be able to see who are the other
 members who also favorited the post and maybe get in touch with them and
 become friends ;)

 The big challenge is how we "arrive" in the template. At the beginning i
 was thinking about prepending the post title but realized filtering
 'the_title' was really risky.. So chose 'the_content'. But people might
 not like to have it at the bottom of the content ...etc .. it can be
 problematic. So i've included filters and actions to allow people to
 include themselves the button where they want and to eventually not use
 dashicons. (I've chosen dashicons because the WP Admin Bar is enqueueing

 I'd like to discuss about it during 2.1 dev cycle and have your opinions
 about it.
