No Idea how Buddy Press works

  • isay81


    This should be a simple question

    I have used wordpress for years, but have never needed to use BuddyPress until now. Can each member embed code in their profile page similar to a YouTube Video or embeding a Mapquest map?

    Would this require some crazy configuring by me or is it an option out of the box?

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide

    There are plugins like Activity Plus that allow embedding things like a uTube link in the activity page on a member’s profile.

    There are several pages in a member’s profile, including a profile page that has data describing that member. There ways to allow for what you want, but it would require some custom coding, iow. not an option out of the box, afaik.



    Yes, adding stuff to the activity stream is easy with plugins like Activity Plus, Buddypress docs.

    Also, Buddypress allows for automatic embeds in the activity stream from a lot of sites, including youtube. You just have to drop in the URL in the “Whats new” box. You can refer to the link here for more information:

    Embedding media to other pages would require custom coding, as @shanebp has pointed out. Where exactly do you intend to show your embeds?



    I wanted it uploaded onto the persons profile, so that everyone in the community could see their timeline of goal achievement success.

    I added Activity plus and uploaded this code and nothing showed up.
