Yes it looks nice, wish all the *Press sites would take the same look though.
I recall this problem popping up a lot when having the stand-alone version of bbpress working with WordPress which was always a pain. Maybe this is the same problem?
Always fixed the problem by fixing the permissions between bbpress and wordpress.
I’ve heard enough, basically this plugin is not intentional anymore for what its predecessor was doing, which was out of the box media uploading for members.
It’s unfortunate that the plugin has taken this course, would love to see someone take bp-album and expand it.
First off, I dont feel like a hater, nor do most. Your writing the plugin of own free will for us, so either way Im thankfull that your willing to give up your time for writing something for the community.
1) Helping on a plugin that keeps expanding and hasn’t been stable for months, is useless. Also, why would we (as community) help a plugin which the developers wont even listen to their (future) users? It’s your code, but it would be useless if no one used it, wouldn’t it?
2) It’s only more like designing a iPod, because you made it so, adding all that functionality. And I don’t think your not doing enough, it’s rather that your doing/trying to much.
3) Take another year for all I care, but remember with what idea the plugin started with, a “media”/”photo”/”gallery” plugin, not a extra layer functionalities. Like jquery ui is for jquery.
Keep in mind, these are just my thoughts and I would like you to at least consider what I’m saying.
@modemlooper I’m interested to seeing a mobile uploader, haven’t seen that before. Also, would be great to see more competition.
@mikepratt You can’t compare the stable plugin (bp album) with the plugin they’re building right now (bp media). It’s different in so many ways. BP Album adds photo upload/gallery capabilities, while BP Media adds (claimed by the developers) “production grade social media hosting capabilities”. See the difference?
@r-a-y Thanks for the response, might wanna share that idea so I can give it a go myself? I was thinking on somehow activating the friends component if someone checked that they wish their stream to be hidden. But having both components on might be a bit of a hassle.
Already am using that plugin, but only because BP Media is doing it wrong.
And a roadmap is open for change, as it were that couple months ago that BP Media was only gonna do the same as Brajesh’s plugin does at the moment. Wonder what will change in the future, new “Bp Media: Blog component”?
1. As far as I know, there’s nothing like this yet. Users can only add data through xprofile at the moment.
2. Activate multisite on your wordpress install.
Only stable plugin which supports these features in BuddyPress 1.5.x is Brajesh’s BP Gallery plugin.
Global Unified Search plugin by Brajesh does this for you.
I believe BuddyPress already includes jQuery cookies, you could use that.
1. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt Since the default buddypress theme uses the_content.
2. http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-add-post-thumbnails-in-wordpress/ Should get you going.
1) Guessing you dont have an answer to that?
2) How is this relevant for a Media plugin, it’s like Im installing WordPress as a blog CMS and I get free Wiki capabilities. Even if your not gonna make seperate plugins for your bp media “core” at least dont add stuff which the plugin doesnt have anything to do with.
3) You might not feel like creating seperate plugins, but its whats needed for this plugin to succeed. Most people wont use anything more than just photo upload and might add embed from other sites.
4) Studies also show that if something takes to long too reach the end goal, most people drop off in the middle, which will happen with your plugin (speaking out of own opinion, since I did the same when I saw the admin part of your nightly build).
5) I’m already suggesting stuff to improve it, but apparently your not interested.
6) The points Im listing dont have anything to do with developing (untill your gonna go through with any of these points offcourse), nor am I a great plugin developer. So that wont be usefull to anyone.
Would like to reach out to other people on Buddypress.org to tell your opinion. Would be nice to hear.
Edit: Adding to point 1, the quality of a plugin gets judged by the users, Im a user and this is my opinion. Which would mean you already lost my vote on this being the “world’s best”.
Just change the normal register.php included in your bp-default?
If you could at least find your bp-default theme file, which is in the buddypress plugin folder > bp-themes > bp-default. There you go to “_inc > css > default.css”. This is buddypress’s standard styling file, here you can edit anything you need.
Anchor (hyperlink) styling can be found on line 503.
Just re-install buddypress and not wordpress? Then yes, just remove those.
An idea for next version: Privacy.
Make an option for people to hide their account untill the person allows you to follow it, a bit like twitter.
So only BuddyPress pages dont work, but your normal WordPress pages work with pretty permalinks?
Not sure if this is still something to be worrying about, but you had to “re-save” your pretty permalinks after installing BuddyPress, if you havent, try that.
I lol’d at this topic title.
Anyway, have you tried, just going totally basic and updating everything to the latest versions?
So deactivating all plugins, using bp-default theme the right way and see where it goes from there?
WPMU, dont you mean WP + Multisite? Is the latest BuddyPress still compatible with WPMU?
