Activity Uploads


#1

Hi

I am planning to use your plugin with Activity streams only as i find BP activity plus not that great for activity media uploads and specially on mobiles. No profile uploads and no Group uploads. Currently Buddypress Media includes the media to profile or group if attatched via activity. Can this be removed?

I mean if am using Buddypress Media plugin only for activity media uploads then the uploaded media shouldnt show up on the profile and the group pages right?

Also regarding activity media uploads…is it possible to wrap/point the URL to the specific activity as follows:

http://domain.com/username/activity/80/

Currently Buddypress Media plugin wraps/points to the image name with the extension…

Kindly do let me know

Thanks
Vishal

Just to add..when i click on the media uploaded from the activtiy stream i am redirected to

http://domain.com/username/media/2/

in the user profile section....now here i get sub tabs/menus for media which are not required in my opinion....

also you can see in the attatched image that there is an avatar of some other default user on the top left hand side....i guess this media is shown as some kind of default post.....

in the attatched image i have put ???????? (question marks) on three things which are confusing me...

kindly do have a look...

Thanks

Hi Vishal,

You can disable media for profile and group from rtMedia admin settings under BuddyPress tab.

Also regarding activity media uploads…is it possible to wrap/point the URL to the specific activity as follows:

The activity URL getting generated from BuddyPress so I think you might need to dig into BuddyPress a little bit.

when i click on the media uploaded from the activtiy stream i am redirected to

I think you had disabled lightbox from rtMedia admin settings under Display tab.

here is an avatar of some other default user on the top left hand side

Please check rtMedia with WordPress default theme and with other plugins disabled.

Hi Ritesh,

Thanks for your reply. my responses as follows:

Currently Buddypress Media includes the media to profile or group if attatched via activity. Can this be removed?

Media is disabled for profile and group from rtMedia admin settings under BuddyPress tab. If lightbox is disabled then it goes to the profile and group sections. If lightbox is enabled then it doesnt. Can this be fixed?

when i click on the media uploaded from the activtiy stream i am redirected to

Indeed. lightbox was disabled from rtMedia admin settings under Display tab. One thing here. I tested lightbox on desktop chrome and worked fine. But on chrome in android handset the same image when clicked over it goes to the profile. In short on mobile lightbox is not supported on mobile devices. Why is this so?

Please check rtMedia with WordPress default theme and with other plugins disabled.

I am testing rtMedia with Buddypress default theme only and there are no other plugins enabled other then BuddyPress.

Kindly do let me know

Hi Vishal,

Currently Buddypress Media includes the media to profile or group if attached via activity. Can this be removed?

Yes that is the default behavior but you can change that if you want to. You need to write some custom code to do that.

If lightbox is disabled then it goes to the profile and group sections. If lightbox is enabled then it doesnt. Can this be fixed?

For that you need to keep lightbox enabled. We are looking into for this bug and will fixed soon.

Lightbox is disabled for mobile devices as many of the rtMedia users don't want lightbox on mobile device.

Thanks Ritesh can libhtbox for mobile be made optional via some kinda setting so that users can enable or disable if they want lightbox support on mobile devices or not?

Lightbox is disabled for mobile devices as many of the rtMedia users don’t want lightbox on mobile device.

Thanks

No, there isn't any option available. For that you need to change rtMedia js file and it's not feasible as it will be overridden in every rtMedia update.


#8

Thanks for your reply..can you let me know what changes i need to make in the JS file?


#9

With the latest update am getting a page not found for pictures. I mean when u click on the picture in activity stream for the large pictures size. lightbox on or off doesnt make a difference. Same page not found. Can this be kindly checked?

Thanks


#10

Flush the permalink settings again and check now. Sometime after upgrading the plugin this problem occurred.


#11

Permalinks flushing didnt help. I find much issues in using your plugin with the activity stream. The above mentioned issue was fixed when i enabled media in group. this should not be the case. i want to upload media in activity only. not in profile or groups. But if only activity stream media upload is allowed then it throws an error when u click on the media/image in the activity stream.

Can this be kindly looked into? I would really not prefer using buddypress activity plus for activity media uploads and yours is the only alternative.

Thanks
Vishal


#12

Forgot to mention i wouldnt like users to upload media from groups or profile. Only via the activity stream.


#13

You can do one thing, Enable single media to view in lightbox and disable media for profile and group. That’s the working solution for now.


#14

Thanks Ritesh…i had done that before but the issue is that when u click on the media in the activity stream and media is disabled for groups+profile then it goes to a page not found error. this happens with lightbox enbaled or disabled.

currently the activity upload is not working as desired cause you link it to a group/profile. As i mentioned in my first post…you need to wrap/point the activity media update URL to the specific activity as follows:

http://domain.com/username/activity/80/


#15

Hi Vishal,
That’s strange. I just crossed check it on my end and I didn’t face 404 page error.
Which version of rtMedia you are using?

You can change URL of media to point to single activity by using some JS code and can change href for .


#16

Am using BP Media Version 3.6.12 with BP 2.0 and the issue persists. i just did a fresh install and same issue. can you kindly give me that JS code to change URL of media to point to single activity? I would like to test this.


#17

Also i noted one more thing with BP 2.0 which i didnt face in BP 1.9. when the media is attatched and the activity or group page is refreshed it shows only the text of the activity post and NOT the media. I need to refresh the page to see the media in the activity stream or group stream. Can this also be kindly checked?

Thanks


#18

Can you give me your site URL to check 404 page error. Also try re-saving permalinks, that might help.

Regarding BP2.0, we are not able to reproduce the same. It is working properly on our end. You can check it on our demo site -> http://demo.rtcamp.com/rtmedia/
