Sending attachments with Private messages

  • Hi, I’m new to buddypress and looking to use it on a site I may be developing.

    I just wondered if it was possible to extend the current private message system to allow it so send attachments to users. Or if a current plugin would offer this.

    I’ve taken a look but cannot seem to find any solution.

    Thanks in advance

    There isnt a plugin I know about, but there are a few for group docs and things like that..

    Thanks for the reply. Been looking at some group docs extensions. I would also need one to allow users to upload and share documents with each other outside of groups. Will have a go at developing one but don’t want to repeat work if it’s already been done.

    I have been looking for PM attachments as well! Would love to have that feature.

    It’s possible, but the plugin would have to create its own tables to store the data. The Group Documents plugin that Dennis mentioned does something similar codewise and can be used as a jumping off point.

    It would be better if BP had a dedicated meta table for PMs like the activity component. Then you could easily add this time of information without creating a separate table. I created a ticket here about this:
