Replacing Whats-New by Tinymce

  • Georgio


    I recently replaced whats-new by tinymce. After some customizations, that’s what it looks like (groups): Screenshot

    To do that, I took a copy of post-form.php from the legacy theme (/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/activity/post-form.php) and replaced the file of the nouveau theme (/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-nouveau/buddypress/activity/post.form)

    Then I changed the code and now it is:

    	do_action( 'bp_before_activity_post_form' ); ?>
    	<div id="whats-new-content" >
    		<div id="whats-new-textarea">
    			<label for="whats-new" class="bp-screen-reader-text"><?php
    				/* translators: accessibility text */
    				_e( 'Post what\'s new', 'buddypress' );
    $content = '';
    $editor_id = 'whats-new';
    $settings = array( 
    		'teeny' => false, 
    		'media_buttons' => false, 
     //    'textarea_rows' => 5,
            'editor_height' => 100,
    		'drag_drop_upload' => false, 
            'quicktags' => false );
    wp_editor( $content, $editor_id, $settings );
    		<div id="whats-new-options">
    			<div id="whats-new-submit">
    				<input type="submit" name="aw-whats-new-submit" id="aw-whats-new-submit" value="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Post', 'buddypress' ); ?>" />

    In the code I added, the height of tinymce is 100px but it is always launched with 134px height.
    It works with 100px height only with the “teeny” version, but this version doesn’t show the image button I added (using a snippet) and the smiley button (from the wp-monalisa plugin).

    I tried to fix the problem with css and the only selector that seems to work is iframe#whats-new_ifr but I cannot use !important to override this, because it affects the autoresizing feature.
    I thought that I could modify it directly on its system file, but I cannot locate it using the plugin “String Locator”

    Any idea? I don’t like to leave it with this height, because it is somehow ugly.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Georgio – nice work. Following this topic.
    Nice improvement to be able to add images to activity posts. Would be great with a ‘sticky post’ button as well. I hope someone will help with this.

    Cheers, Lars
