Need help integrating Suffusion>BP Pack>BP Album+ into existing music site…
First off, thank you all for this incredibly helpful support forum.
I have a two part question and I think it could clear up a lot for people looking to integrate BuddyPress into an existing website. I’m trying to convert an existing music website SunsetIslandMusic.com into a networking site that allows artists to upload their audio files for members to hear and share. I’m using all the latest versions: WordPress 3.1.2, Suffusion 3.7.8, BuddyPress 1.2.8, BP Pack 1.02 and BP Album+ 0.1.8.9, which from my understanding won’t have audio upload capabilities until the next version drops. I also have BP Media Component 188.8.131.52, which actually allows members to upload music and looks sharp when being used with BuddyPress alone. The problem is it doesn’t play too well with Suffusion. And after significant research, the method of creating a Suffusion Child Theme has by far emerged as the easiest and most future-proof way of incorporating existing styles into a BuddyPress format.
My second question involves the ability for members to upload their own media. It’s great that Suffusion’s BP Pack comes with help integrating BP Album+, but I don’t believe the current version allows members to upload audio files (unless I’m missing something…). As I mentioned, BP Media Component works, but has anyone figured out how to make it play nice with Suffusion? Does anyone have suggestions for other media plugins I should try?
Thank you all so much for helping me out!
