Thank you very much for your detailed response.
We want to keep complaints totally public.
The buddypress multi-network plugin looks great.
I think the author is going to soon update it to BP 1.6 version.
Thank you again.
Have you found any other solution or plugin dealing with this issue?
Can you share your network or websites’ url?
I am also looking for similar answers?
I had been just too busy with other (non-web) stuff for few months.
I am hoping to be working on my site in few weeks.
PS: I check the project tracker regularly and things are moving pretty fast
So how does one get around the limited storage if he/she needs lots of storage for all the photos/videos that people will upload in to BP sites?
Lets say my webhost provides 100GB storage, and I need lot more because users are loading so much media. Now what will happen? What is the solution? Is there some thing out-of-server/offline storage for this extra media? What is CDN storage?
Sorry, just trying to understand
I am happy to pay but want worry free hosting. I am not looking for shared hosting but more like VPS/Cloud hosting. I am thinking if Automattic provides or recommends hosting, then at least it will be properly created for WP/WPMU/BP installs.
The reason I suggested WordPress/BuddyPress was that I already know Automattic provides hosting but only to some very select sites/people not to everyone. I should have said “Automattic” not WP/BP….my mistake.
I understand your comments about unlimited:)
I think you missed the point I was making.
I just want to know upfront what will be the cost if my “storage” and “bandwidth” exceeds my plan.
Many hosts provide the cost for using extra “bandwidth”.
Unfortunately, I have not seen any host that tells you what they will charge if your “storage” exceeds the plan.
My concern is that BuddyPress sites will have media (photos/videos) etc and there is a good chance that storage offered by many hosts will not be enought.
It will be great if web hosts provide upfront cost for additional storage.
@DJPaul Thanks for your response. I am not a programmer so
Folks at WPMU Dev suggested trying this pluggin by JohnJamesJacoby to see if it works:
WP Multi Network
Adds a Network Management UI for super admins in a WordPress Multisite environment.
Turn your multi-site installation of WordPress into many multi-site networks, all surrounding one central user base.
WP Multi Network allows cape wearing super admins to create new network collections of sites, allowing for infinitely extensible site, network, and domain arrangements.
@johnjamesjacoby Please advise if I can use this pluggin for my purpose as I explained in the original post above.
Thanks you very much.
Good suggestion, and perhaps it can automatically name those albums something like follows:
And admin can set limits from the admin panel on:
- how many albums of any type (photo, video, audio, etc) can members build
- number of items (photos, videos, audio clips, etc) allowed per album
Sorry if I am repeating things here, wasn’t exactly clear.
We appreciate whole heartedly the work that is done on this.
This is a huge undertaking and I have come across so many posters saying their project is dependent on this plugin. I know mine is too:)
Btw, is it possible for users to make audio/video “playlists” in this or any other BP plugin?
Thank you very much.
Anyone knows if there is a plan for BuddyPress Multi-site plugin?
Can you post what exactly did you edit/where/how step-by-step for us dummies?
@ foxly … lol
I am not very confident of my (non-existent) coding skills
I have however used wordpress in the past to post on a blog.
Plus I don’t have a server yet………can I download on my laptop and test it?
Does this (0.1.9) build allow video embedding from other sites?
Nice work….it is going to be an AWESOME plugin.
Can’t wait for it to become stable.
This looks like a much needed and awesome plugin.
Thanks for detailed answers/comments.
Indeed it is pretty helpful, and good info.
Looking forward to the plugin, will install and play with in couple of weeks.
Anyone know a good/easy/simple source to learn plugin development or template/theme changes etc.
I am not a programmer….don’t know php etc so please refer me to some resources/links that are good enough for dummies:)
May be this can help:
Creating a Custom BuddyPress Component
You should release this as a plugin.
Any buddypress Guru here that can answer my questions?
Thank you for your time and help.
@alanchrishughes Thanks buddy. I know I have to limit direct uploading in the beginning (perhaps few pics and some other limits on media) and encourage embedding from other sites. Later on, when we start making some money then we can afford to allow more direct uploading.
@sj Thank you for taking time to answer all questions. I also like name PunjabiTube.com as it has instant recognition and gets pretty good daily traffic also.
Most of my basic questions are answered. I now know enough basic stuff about buddypress usage to make informed decisions.
I am not a developer or programmer and appreciate everybody’s patience in answering my questions. May have few more as I put on my thinking cap: lol
Please respond to my follow up questions above?
Thank you very much.
@alanchrishughes I am looking for both embedding from other sites and also members loading directly to our sites.
In the beginning, most of the videos will be embedded from other sites to kickstart the site and at the same time members can also load videos/photos directly to our sites. I am researching video/youtube type of themes for buddypress also.
