    @henrywright

    I want the member sites (subsites, http:example.com/blogs) , to use the same theme (header,footer,etc) as the main site, and not open as a separate site.

    You can manage that kind of thing from the Network Admin Themes Screen.

    Hi @aymanomar85

    Regarding the left and right arrows, BuddyPress doesn’t support that kind of form element ‘out-of-the-box’. I’m not even sure it’s a HTML element? You’ll most probably need to use JavaScript to accomplish that.

    Hi @xgz

    Further to @danbp‘s advice, if you find a bug in core, consider opening a ticket and submitting a fix:

    https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/

    Also, note that if you change the core plugin after you’ve downloaded it, your changes will be lost each time you upgrade.

    You wouldn’t necessarily need to hook into BuddyPress functions. Instead, the main thing to do would be to upload the file, associate that file with a BuddyPress member, and record any associated data for that upload (the user’s choice from your option list).

    Check out this article for getting started with Plupload:

    Plupload isn’t a plugin, rather, it’s an ‘upload’ library used in WordPress core. It’s a great way of uploading media. We’ve all used it even though we might not know it because it’s the tool that powers the media uploading when you go to WP admin > Media > Add New

    @lbpp OK so the short term approach would be to write a HTML form with the option list and file upload button as form elements. Then, server-side, you’d have your processing script which processes the $_POST data after the user has submitted.

    There’s 101 ways to do that. Plupload springs to mind as the most elegant solution because you can do all sorts of stuff with the uploaded file (and of course Plupload is a core library so the solution will be lightweight). In terms of where the media gets uploaded to, I assume you’d want it to go into the back-end Media Library? If so, then checkout the async upload script. If you use that when setting your Plupload defaults, then most of the heavy lifting is done for you automatically.

    Check out the Plupload docs for more info on that library.

    Of course, that’s just one approach you could go with (the one I’d choose myself), but there will be many more alternative approaches you could take.

    Hi @lbpp

    Check out the Attachments API (which is currently in the pipeline and should be available in the 2.3 release). As you’ll see, this kind of thing will be far easier going forward.

    Where will you be getting the data from?

    Hi @wordpresswally

    You seem to be doing everything right. Disabling plugins and reverting to the default theme (Twenty somethings) usually resolves the problem.

    Are you seeing the problem on both localhost and on your online server?

    Does the old post you copied the question from include any guidance or suggestions? Perhaps you could link to the post?

    @hnla that’s very useful! I wasn’t aware that was possible :)

    Cool! Good luck with the project :)

    Just to add, if you’re looking to get started with things like this, the Mozilla Developer Network is a useful (and free) resource that I’ve used many times in the past.

    I was thinking along the lines of adding some jQuery. If you google the .hide() and .show() methods there should be a lot that comes up. A very quick (meaningless) example:

    $( '#hide' ).click( function() {
        $( '.tab' ).hide();
    });
    
    $( '#show' ).click( function() {
        $( '.tab' ).show();
    });

    There’s also .toggle() which might be more suited to this.

    (I had links to existing functions for step 1 and 3 but they may have caused my post submit to fail)

    Ah, sorry about that. Posts with > 2 links go into the moderation queue.

    Do you think this strategy would make it any easier or more feasible?

    I think your approach sounds totally feasible.

    My only question would be why do things on hover? Your concern that implementing a hover effect might cause issues for mobile users could be addressed just by using simple click approach (or in the case of mobile users, that would be tap). So for example, click on ‘more’ to reveal the hidden tabs.

    Unfortunately, there’s no existing easy way to consolidate or merge tabs. The easiest way to achieve that in my opinion would be to create a new tab called More and remove each of the unwanted tabs. More would need some custom code to (re)introduce all of the functionality that has been lost via your unwanted tab removal.

    Sounds a big project I know, but I can’t think of anything easier :(

    Hi @deepjain81

    This isn’t currently possible. Full name may have all kinds of characters in it that will play havoc with the URL. For that reason, BuddyPress uses username and doesn’t provide a way to change it.

    If you really need to go down this route, then it most probably is possible, but will need quite a lot of custom work done in order to avoid potential bugs.
