Sending attachments with Private messages

  • Hi, I’m new to buddypress and looking to use it on a site I may be developing.

    I just wondered if it was possible to extend the current private message system to allow it so send attachments to users. Or if a current plugin would offer this.

    I’ve taken a look but cannot seem to find any solution.

    Thanks in advance

    There isnt a plugin I know about, but there are a few for group docs and things like that..

    Thanks for the reply. Been looking at some group docs extensions. I would also need one to allow users to upload and share documents with each other outside of groups. Will have a go at developing one but don’t want to repeat work if it’s already been done.

    I have been looking for PM attachments as well! Would love to have that feature.

    Ditto :)



    It’s possible, but the plugin would have to create its own tables to store the data. The Group Documents plugin that Dennis mentioned does something similar codewise and can be used as a jumping off point.

    It would be better if BP had a dedicated meta table for PMs like the activity component. Then you could easily add this time of information without creating a separate table. I created a ticket here about this:
