I want to underline that for now I just need all the users/members to be connected to eachother; I don’t need separate networks, hope I’m making myself clear.
The website talk of a specific niche, so I want the users to be able to interact in every page of the website, including also the subites/subcategories of the network where the owners/admins on these mini websites/blogs post their buddypress content, for instance, commening a post, or commenting on a bp gallery pics and so on
I see; my aim is to click on the album voice from the menu bar and getting directly to the unique gallery opened like in a grid.
Thanks for your help.
I’ll try to ask to that link you wrote.
🙁 and should I not set anything on the buddypress pages setting?
Ok, I removed that page from the buddypress page settings: now is even worse: is showing just the text of the shortcode :O
Here the url of the website:
I think I did as you say: I created a page, called “album” then I pointed it to the bar menu, cause I want to put it in evidence.
Then, by mediapress I created the gallery’s photos and I named it “album”
What I did after is: going to the setting of the pages: opening the page “album” up and writing this shortcode [mpp-show-gallery id=72] into the text editor.
Guess I’m missing something very banal but for now I do no have idea where else I should add the shortcode 🙁
Very kind of you. Without forum’s help and people like you I had given up time ago, but I’ve learnt a lot and still have much to learn 🙂 🙂
Before the gallery and the mediapress page had 2 different names, now I’ve named them the same.
To find out the gallery Id, I pass over the gallery name and at the bottom of the page I see the long url with the ( post= 72 ). Guess this is the Id.
So my shortcode should be [mpp-show-gallery id=72]
I read that the shortcodes usually go to config.php but I’m not sure about that. I tried to follow the procedure you wrote above adding the shortcode into the content space of the gallery page I created… but seems that doesn’t work. I’m wroning something for sure.
The galley page I created is called: album and as you see clicking on the page, it open up the page with a gallery preview box, also called album, instead of showing up the gallery already opened or sitewide as is called.
Is it possible I’m wroning where to add the shortcode?
Thanks a lot for everything.
My ignorance is quite embarrassing.
When I get to Admin-Mediapress-all galleries, I see just the list of the galleries I’ve created. Then clicking on a gallery I open up the editor and there I see the button for the shortlink, but well, I do no think the shortlink is the same of a shortcode.
May I ask how a shortcode for that aim should looks like….approximately?
I’m afraid I’m far away to solve this problem that looks ( I guess ) quite simple 🙁 🙁
I got confirmation there should be a shortcode for showing up the gallery already opened.
This is the default syntax shortcode
[mpp-gallery option_name=some value option1_name = some other value … ]
Unluckily due to my lacks I’m not very skilled in these stuff, so I don’t know how and what to put in places of those default voices, but looking at the guide, I’ve found some parameters that should be fine to obtain what I need.
These following ones are the groups I think I could need, but I’m not sure which one:
id:- Specific gallery id which you want to list. Only one gallery will be listed
slug:- Only a gallery with this slug will be listed.
in:- Comma separated list of gallery ids which you want to include in the list. Only these galleries will be listed.
exclude: Comma separated list of gallery ids which you don’t want to include in the listing.
It is used to display the gallery list in grid. Default value is 4. it defins how many galleries should be listed per row.
controls how many galleries to list per page
how many galleries from the list to offset/displace( exclude from beginning of the original list)
page:- It is same as the ‘paged’ parameter of WP_Query, Which page of result you want to display.
nopaging:- If you want to list all galleries. Please avoid it as It can lead to degraded performance. Always use per_page instead.
…..I’d need some help to know how to replace a code of these ones to the default ones of this shortcode
[mpp-gallery option_name=some value option1_name = some other value … ]
Thanks all in advance
This was the demo I forgot to link in my previous message: http://demos.buddydev.com/mediapress/galleries/sitewide-gallery-test/
“After that you need to set a Gallery page in the Buddypress page settings.”
It was my problem: didn’t get how to point the gallery to the specific page; I didn’t consider the buddypress settings, thank you.
I’d have 2 other little problems now:
-in this demo the gallery shows up already opened with the pics in the grid, while in my case when I click on the menu bar to the gallery voice, I have to click then on a certain gallery to open it up ( and I have just one gallery ) so I’d like the gallery to be already opened when I click on the menu voice, exactly like in the demo.
What I’ve to do to achieve it?
-second thing: as I said before, I want just one gallery as sitewide gallery, so I’ll add pics to this gallery day by day, but I see that the last pics added go to the 2nd, 3rd page and so on, while I’d need the last pics uploaded to appear in the first page as the most recent ones.
Till now I didn’t manage to find the right settings for this: is there a way to do it?
Thanks again for your time and help
Thanks for your reply, after reading it I’ve seen is the most adviced plugin for that aim.
Is there any live demo working or a live showcase of it?
I didn’t get if as the admin of the website I could create a page for mediapress grid album in which I’m the only one allowed to upload pics and letting all the registered members commenting on the pics, but at the same time as I said, not allowing anyone to upload their pics in that grid.
It should work like instagram but just with the buddypress accounts
thanks bp-help; I’ll try it out. I’m making some tests, but I’d better open a new topic for that
I’m sorry to bump the topic, but don’t know how to edit my previous message.
I was googling for info about buddydrive and I’ve found a forum where they were talking about that plugin and I believe that forum itself is made in bbpress.
Well, an user giving an advice to another shown up in his reply a screenshot.
This is the forum
I don’t know if he’s using buddydrive or any other plugin, but the result is exactly what I’m looking for.
Just to try to explain myself better:
I need something that would allow me to upload an image I want to appear here below what I’m writing now.
Hi danbp, thanks for your reply.
I need to allow all my members to post images cause I want all the new threads to look like articles from a blog,( so with text and photos ) and other members can keep the article up,replying on the thread continuing posting opinions and photos about that subject: What I’m building up is a community focused on images from members, so it’s a must for me to have something as I described.
I gave a quick look to buddydrive: I saw the tutorial of the developer, but at least for what I got, it seems the plugin is able just to upload file/folder attachments, I mean as links that can be downloaded, while I need my members to upload a photo that appear live in their forum’s replies, new threads and so on.
I’m not sure if I got well how buddydrive works due also to the fact english is not my native language so I often have some problems.
May i ask you just if buddydrive could allow forum’s members to upload photos immediately visible in their forum’s discussions?
Thanks for your time
