    Oh Wise List,

    Im new to BP. forgive me.

    Is it possible to have Members post Large images and Descriptions into a Group or Forum,
    that can then appear in a custom layout like this?

    http://cl.ly/16241x3l023e0F0h1G2T

    if so, what plugins can enable this?
    if not, can this be custom developed?
    Or is this only possible by allowing members to make custom-post type posts?

    thanks!

    == can this be custom developed? ==
    Looks do-able. However, you have to be clearer about the following, among others::
    - Where do you expect to see this layout to be rendered?
    - Are those featured images which link to a post/page/post-type?
    - Data for the page coming from a single WP installation or from WP multisite blogs?

    To hire a developer:
    - http://buddypress.org/community/groups/bp-jobs-board/forum/ or
    - http://jobs.wordpress.net/

    Thanks for getting back to me..

    - Where do you expect to see this layout to be rendered?
    ideally..this should be on the main site as a main category page..
    and not inside a forum or group page. but we are flexible.

    - Are those featured images which link to a post/page/post-type?
    no. those are just images that the member uploads to the group.

    - Data for the page coming from a single WP installation or from WP multisite blogs?
    Single install

    @arturdesign2devcom I see CATEGORY, GROUPS, and SINGLE WP

    So I see using http://buddydev.com/buddypress/blog-categories-for-groups-plugin/ where each group is a category. Create posts via front end; then create a regular category template file (see WP codex) for each group with the layout you want which can pull in the first image from the post in that category template file (get the image plugin or use post-thumbnail support).
