searchable attachment with user and group privacy/ public permissions.

  • RLaine


    I want to be able to attach documents to posts and pages in the wp/buddypress admin and control the display on the front end.
    I would also like to be able to make those documents searchable, also with privacy/ public setting options for groups and users applied.
    It also should pass accessibility standards compliance.
    I have tested buddydrive, buddypress docs and rtmedia.
    I need something lite and easy to use.

    Can anyone recommend the correct lite accessible ( standards compliant) plugins to start with as a base. I can’t see anything that does all I need so I do need to pass to a developer but any guidance on the best plugin and/or pitfalls much appreciated.

    Hi @rlaine

    The best place to start your research is the WordPress Plugins Directory. As you’ve mentioned you probably won’t find a single plugin that does everything, it’s instead likely that you’ll need a combination of plugins and perhaps even some custom code written. Regarding accessibility compliance, my advice is select a theme from the Themes Directory and set up a test install where you can try out your plugins. Then run your site through an evaluation tool to see if guidelines are met. A good list of tools is available on the w3c website:

    Hope this helps.



    Yes, thanks for the reply.
    I have spent days doing that already and have been going round in circles.
    I was hoping, someone maybe having gone through the same process could prevent me having to re-invent the wheel.
    Looks like I need a developer to get stuck in.. thanks

    A developer will certainly be able to help you with something like this as it isn’t a huge job. Check out the BP Jobs Board, you should be able to find a BP developer there.
