It looks like the dev probably wrote it on Windows and it used upper case but when it went into the wordpress repo, it went in as all lower case. You have to change the case of the folders to BP-Group-Control for it to work. I didn’t want to just change the file in case there were other dependencies.
I use bp-gallery from buddydev.com and have been working on something a little similar to the expanded profile page. Right now, I find gallery a little more suited to my needs because it supports audio, video, and photos. I’m not sure what other requirements you’d need for a photo plugin. Hope this helps.
I too was a big supporter of those plugins. Thankfully, I was able to convince someone to revive at least one of them. This might work for at least the photo part of your problem.
I’ve been looking at how to help get a headstart on a similar YouTube plugin also.
Hope this helps.
I’ve been beta testing gallery and with a few of us, he’s really listened to a lot of feature requests and feedback. At buddydev.com, you can see screenshot but yes, I know gallery has full support for all media for groups. I would check it our before you make tour decision but I love it. I’m converting my site which has a ton of media and it’s working great for all of my audio and video as well.
There are two available that should fit your needs.
1. Buddydev’s BP Gallery which includes photos/video/audio and is in beta right now shortly to go stable at http://buddydev.com ( this is a premium plugin and access costs $30/3 months)
2. bp album which is just photos but is free. They’ve made big strides lately and it should be available in the wp plugin repo.
I’m not sure if it hides activity, but I heard a trick to “hiding” admins from the member list was to change their status in the database of the user to “99” and that prevents it from showing in the member’s list.
If they’re hosted on different servers, the problem is with CURL and the way it issues the request. I’ve worked with Peter on this and we found that. It sounds like some of your servers and running php 5.16 or higher and some might be under 5.15.
Is there a list of shortcode that I could call a specific category links to display in a template? For example, if I want to display the last 3 links in category “x” in the sidebar of the member’s home page, is this possible?
if using the code above to default to hidden, is there any way to hide from the MEMBER list? I have around 1000 members from our old site so don’t really want to start fresh but we do want to have them “opt-in” to be listed. I heard that you could “trick” it by using user status of 99 In the db. I was going to set all users to 99 and then set them back manually but if your plugin could do that, that would be perfect. This would allow me to keep all users hidden until they “reactivated” their accounts or created a new one. I think this would be good for the teachers situation as well.
Thanks for the plugin regardless. This will work ok but if I can handle setting the status or hiding them, it would be perfect.
I can’t even load the plugin on my site because it fails to activate due to a “fatal error” The dev asked for me to go to debug on the plugin but since I can’t even activate it, of course that’s not an option
Has anyone else with libcurl 7.15 figured out a way around the auth problem? I’m really dying to use this plugin and I know I’ve seen a few people that have said that it works fine for them with 7.15 but I’m not sure what would be different on my setup.
If you figure out how to get it working let me know. I tried activating it but wasn’t able to due to a fatal error but wasn’t able to troubleshoot yet.
Iis doesn’t usually support php. Web.config is a file that’s used for an asp.net application/website. You should switch your plan to a Linux based hosting plan if you want to use buddypress and wordpress as those are usually best run on Linux plans. I’m not even sure how you got them running on IIS as you need mysql database and I wouldn’t think you could get one with a windows plan.
I don’t THINK it has to do with modsecurity as I’ve turned it off for testing but I could be wrong. I’m going to check my error logs as well and see what I can find.
It looks like CentOS 5 only has 7.15.5 as the latest version in the repository. I’m not sure how easy this would be to update for the normal user that might have shared linux hosting. I will admit that it looks like that’s the issue. As a matter of fact, I think I know the exact issue.
I saw this posted when i saw looking at trying to update libcurl.
I needed the curl –libcurl switch which is not available in curl 7.15 so I needed to upgrade curl on the CentOS server I was working on.
The current version of curl available on CentOS 5 is curl version 7.15.5-2.1 but the current curl release is curl version 7.20.0-1. After reading the curl changelog it looks like the –libcurlÂ switch was added to curl in release 7.16.1. So the end result is if you want to use the libcurl switch you need to upgrade curl to a newer version which is discussed in more detail below.
You’re using curl -libcurl aren’t you?
This would explain why none of us with libcurl below 7.15.5 are able to auth. Any way around this or are we just out of luck?
Some themes call the divs that the content goes in “container”, some call it “main”. You need to match up to what your theme is. For example, I just tested this on a theme today and the theme I was testing called the div “content” and once I switched it to “main” (the way that it looked in page.php), it lined up inside the right container.
another thing to do is to rename the folder names for any plugins you have that are bp related. for example if you’re running bp-gallery, or bp-chat, etc. those usually REQUIRE bp to be enabled so if you have those enabled without bp, they will white screen the site.
I’m not sure why you were stripping down and rewriting bp-gallery from Brajesh to 1.2 because that’s all it’s been developed on. he’s about to release rc2 and then go stable but the release of bp 1.2.2 broke a few functions that he’s having to fix. You must be thinking about bb-picturealbum from Manoj Kumar that he quit development on. Those are two different developers. Please make sure that you have them correct.
Those posts that you have that are referencing bbpicture are Manoj Kumar’s plugin from 1.03, NOT bp-gallery. bp-gallery was written for 1.2 and does work with 1.2’s default theme.
bp-gallery is something that I’ve been testing since the alpha and the differences from what I see are that gallery supports all media, including images, video, and audio. There is also group support already included and privacy settings for them all as well. He is also going to release the shortcodes to include the images and albums in posts.
For those who are still confused, and this is NOT an advertisement, just answering the questions about the differences and clarifying any misconceptions, the site for bp-gallery is at http://buddydev.com
Oh sorry. Guess that was confusing. No it still doesn’t work. I get the blank key in the oauth URL like the others and hit the “woah there” page about the token already being used.
I tested out Kaltura but one thing to caution you about that I saw was that the last updated date was almost 6 months ago and it shows compatibility with 1.0.x and 1.1.x, NOT 1.2. It didn’t seem to be very actively worked on so I started looking at different options. Here’s their wordpress repo link for you to decide on your own.
Negatory good buddy. I tried it without an admin account but also noticed that I have no key being populated in the url as well. I also tried deactivating maintenance mode in case that caused problems because I have seen it happen with other plugins.
I’m having the same authorization issue. Was looking for you in IRC. I have my keys defined but I am using a 3rd party theme. Could it be the same thing that guru noticed that it doesn’t auth correctly for admins?
Buddydev is about to release rc2 of bp-gallery, which does video and audio as well as images. You might look at that.
http://buddydev.com has bp-gallery that’s about to have rc2 released and should be stable in a couple of weeks.
You can use this setting in wp-config.php
define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 3 ); <– 3 should be your blog id that you want it to run on.
define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, false ); <– this will prevent the bp functions from trying to attach to the theme of a blog that doens’t have a bp enabled blog
