using buddypress media plugin in place of wp gallery?
Are there any future plans for allowing us to use the media plugin instead of wp-gallery when creating posts?
I think it’s universally agreed upon that the wp-gallery function sucks. Frankly imho, it is the weakest link in wordpress to date. After playing with buddypress media, I am completely impressed with the power and functionality that it offers. The album organization is top-notch and frankly I think it is quickly becoming the best media gallery on the market.
I just see a disconnect for my users having to use a separate media system when they create blog posts by having to use the wp-gallery. It would be so much nicer to simply call the buddypress media plugin, and use it instead to upload or select images to insert into the posts.
Because I use the buddypress groupblogs plugin, that means not only does each user have their own blog, but so does each group. I can see how it would quickly become confusing to users to tell them that images they upload in media are not available in wp-gallery and vice-versa.
If it is not on the roadmap… it would be a fantastic addition. You have my vote, and I am sure many others as well.
