Activity Stream….attach pictures — normal?

    Hiya.

    So I am looking into how to use the Activity Stream that is designed to show on group front pages to allow for picture attachments. So It’s not merely someone inserting a link or a website address — but uploading a picture from their computer. I haven’t found a way via code or a widget or a plugin that can do this.

    Is anyone capable of telling me how to get the Activity Stream to allow group users to upload pictures with their comments? I don’t need all filetypes; in fact, I just want it to be a small-ish picture (around 250kb max), with only allowing PNG, JPG, and GIF as filetypes.

    Also, I believe disallowing pictures in comments on the group Activity Stream is normal….but if it is not, and what I’m dealing with is a bug, please let me know that too.

    Thanks in advance for help. 🙂

    P.S.: I’m using bbPress with BuddyPress….and I’m referring to the ability for the “updates” people make ~directly~ to the group front page — not updates they make in forums elsewhere that populate in the Activity Stream automatically. 🙂

    Basically there are multiple plugins that allows to upload media and the plugin I gave you should work for sure to upload image in activity. Anyways, you can try this one as well https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-media/

    that plugin has several issues…unfortunately. one look at the reviews and i knew that was not a plugin i’d ever use.

    i decided to not try to upload pics in the activity stream afterall. i’m going to just go with the forums and am using GD image there; works well.

    my new issue: trying to figure out where the template/shortcode is in either bbPress or BuddyPress that creates a topic discussion page. the page where the actual topic discussion takes place…not merely the default forum page with all the topics listed there.

    if you know where i can find that shortcode/code that structures the topic page where the topic itself is discussed, please let me know…

    Hi,
    The plugin works fine for me. Anyways, you can find all the bbpress shortcodes here: https://codex.bbpress.org/features/shortcodes/.

    For you [bbp-single-topic id=$topic_id] this should work.

    Thanks

    I also feel it’s a bug, because I am also facing same problem.
