    I guess this is two questions:

    1. can buddy press forums posts allow file attachements such as images or pdf files?

    2. is there a separate file upload function for groups separate from forum posts?

    thanks,

    Deryk

    I’ve just tried Boone’s plugin that Dwenaus linked above, and after editing the template files as noted in the readme (more or less — the line numbers have changed, of course), it seems to work.

    So far I can’t get inlining to work with uploaded image attachments, though, which was what I was aiming for. Bummer.

    It may be an artifact of dev on a local xammp install maybe, because I’ve got URLs for the attachment icons like “http://localhost.localdomain/devsiteD:/xampp/htdocs/devsite/wp-content/plugins/forum-attachments-for-buddypress/icons/img.gif”, I’m not sure. Link for the ‘uploaded’ image is fine, just no inline….

    Will investigate, in my semi- but mostly incompetent way.

    stwc – I spent some time when I first ported that plugin to make inline images work, but I couldn’t manage to do it in the same way that the original bbPress plugin does. I kept coming up against problems with the way headers are sent to the browser, which is, to put it mildly, not my area of expertise :)

    I have literally not even glanced at the plugin on BP 1.2+. I’ll have to do so soon, though, as not having forum attachments will be a stumbling block for me to upgrade my production site from BP 1.1.3.

    As always, I’ll keep everyone updated via these forums and http://teleogistic.net.
