Improvement at activity stream for GD Attachments Plugin
GD Attachments Plugin is designed for bbpress forums. It allow users upload files to topics or replies.
If those files are images it renders them by creating a thumbnail for each one and relating them with lightbox for example.
So with this plugin beside the capability of users attach almost any file type on forums it allows easily a gallery of photos in a user reply.
It turns that Buddypress pulls every forums updates to activity stream and if a thumbnail is found, it comes too which in my case is great. My activity stream starts to look like facebook.
Now I need to add some additional styling to activity stream. Thumbnails are displayed one after another vertically without any spacing. They should be displayed the same way forums are displaying them. There’s some CSS from plugin used on forums that obviously it’s not used at activity stream.
Where do I look in Buddypress to add the missing CSS? I might have to add/change some code to call the plugin class and add a li tag to build the gallery.
At first sight it seems a plugin fail. It’s not. it wasn’t built for buddypress, its author got surprised when I told him that buddypress is rendering the thumbnails at activity stream.
My opinion is that this is a major feature added to Buddypress that needs minor work which is beyound my knowledge for now
Help is appreciated
