BP Album+ || New Features Requests and Discussion

    @foxly

    If you need a free image gallery or photo album for BuddyPress, BP Album+ is probably the plugin you’re looking for. BP Album+ adds instant, FaceBook style photo albums to all of your user’s profiles.

    You can always get the most up-to-date version from the WordPress plugin repository at this link:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-album/

    Or, if you like living on the bleeding-edge of BuddyPress development, you can get the latest beta here:

    http://foxly.ca/bp-album-1_6_BETA.zip

    ======

    This forum thread is for discussing new features the community would like to see in future releases of the BP Album+ plugin.

    All ideas are welcome, no matter how crazy, bandwidth-intensive, or strange …but the final call on what goes into the plugin and when will be made by the development team.

    Photos and user interfaces are a uniquely “visual” thing, so when posting an idea to this thread, please try to include a LINK to a website that’s doing the thing you want included in the plugin. For original functions that don’t exist *anywhere* yet, draw a sketch of your idea in a paint program and post a link to the image.

    This will make it much easier for users that don’t speak English to understand your idea.

    So, Let’s get started!

    @foxly congrats on the GSOC Funding.

    Hi

    I tried the latest and the links still do not work correctly on the activity..

    Maybe downloaded the wrong one – these forums are a little confusing now..

    Congrats on the funding

    @foxly , mobile apps/internet is the future and if you could make a remote API or add it to ping.fm ,so that mobile users can upload photos!

    @foxly sweat ~ (as my danish roommate would say in accented approval) ~ does that mean that you’ll be able to select a BPAlbum+ pic as your member avatar pic rather than the tiny square one that doesn’t expand you can pick now?

    @gpo1, can you proof it’s the future?
    I’ve been hearing that statement a lot but haven’t seen any solid proof that everybody on the globe will have phones with apps that allow you to do these things.

    Not saying I don’t like the idea, it’s fun and all, but personally I don’t feel it’s future yet.

    @Xevo ,
    Google the stats on iphone ,BB & android phone usage , its on the increase and the usage of uploading photo via phone is up because users take more photos via phone than cameras of lately look at FB, twitpic & tweetphone.com than using a PC !

    GSoC acceptance is very good because I can use more of my time for coding, btw the GSoC project is not related only to this plugin but also to a new moderation component ( you can read more here http://flweb.it/2010/04/google-summer-of-code-project-media-component-and-moderation-for-buddypress/ )
    I’ll post more detailed information on the project when roadmap/milestones are defined with mentors (Boone Gorges & Andy Peatling).
    GSoC timeline provides some weeks of community bonding before start coding the project (that obviusly doesn’t mean that I am not coding at all, we are working on other features)
    New buddypress.org site focus much more on groups, expecially for plugins, so I’ll create two groups, one for BP Album+ and one for the new plugin (I think it’s going to be called BuddyPress Moderation, if you have a better name you can suggest ;) ) where you can read updates, give feedback, etc.
    As someone suggested having only one huge thread make difficult to follow all the topics, so having a group should make it easier and it’s more social too. ( @foxly I’ll add you as bp-album group admin as soon as it’s created).

    on bp-album in the core: this plugin will not be merged in the core, bp needs to be used in any type of community so it has to be no-frills, btw 1.3 will have a page in the setup with plugin suggestions so important features that are not in the core can easily be added.

    on mobile support: I think first step is to make bp mobile friendly then plugins will follow the core example. I mean that core protocol with support for plugins is much more better then each plugin with it’s own protocol.

    I’ve got a question.

    I can’t seem to get new pictures to show up in the global activity stream. Is there a way to do this? New images only show up in the users profile activity stream, but not the global one.

    Is there a way to make a page that a user can view every single photo uploaded? Right now the only way my users view photos is to click into someones profile and go through their album. I was wondering if there’s a code I can put in a page that will make all album photos available in one big album?

    Also do you have a widget that will display random album photos and link back to the users page? Right now I have a widget that only displays the photo and links to the actually photo on the server but not to the users page.

    I’m really glad this is in the GSoC projects. I hope that group albums is near the top of the development list.

    @francescolaffi uploading pics from mobile is pretty standard, whether it’s just an email address they get sent to, that would be quite helpful. People take pics on their cell phones now, why not be able to upload them on location? Viewing them on a cell is a dif story.

    My main question is:
    What features does Gallery have that BPAlbum+ is not planning on developing over the next two months?

    Also, @techguy strongly agree with this, group albums totally critical here :)

    @jaxster, I figured out how to make a page that shows every photo ever uploaded

    Basically you use the BuddyPress Activity Loop (found here http://codex.buddypress.org/developer-docs/custom-buddypress-loops/the-activity-stream-loop/)

    And then where it says this `php if ( bp_has_activities( ) ) : bp_the_activity() `

    Change to:

    `php if ( bp_has_activities( ‘action=bp_album_picture’) ) : bp_the_activity() `

    You can filter by any activity that way.

    Add the activity Stream code to a custom page php file

    Hope that helps

    Probably within the next week.

    We’ve both got our new code finished, and we should be doing our merge shortly.

    ^F^

    Looking forward to the next release, this must be considered the best plugin for community enhancement

    I would love it if users could upload audio on their profiles and share it with other members in the activity stream. Thanks.
