Media Page

When I installed the free version and played around, everything does work. But if you go to like:

why the page looks like a blog post? It suppose not to happen. I assume a bug or anything else? I have attached the snapshot so you will see what I mean.

Please advise.

That is correct thing. Nothing wrong with the look. display all the tabs/content related to rtMedia.
Have a look into the demo site


I am talking about the icon box and the ‘in’ text area. Can you see that?

The demo page doesn’t have that


Yes, got it.

Its not a bug, you need to work on current theme template. Follow the rtMedia templates documents here

I found that Buddypress theme and rtMedia doesnt work well. It only works well with Twenty Tweleve after I made several test with any themes.

Please make that note for everyone to know. Just a FYI!


We already had created a document regarding BuddyPress theme media tab issue. You can check it here ->

Hello. I want to buy rtMedia but when I installed the trial/ free version, and upload photos, I noticed the following:

1- Nothing shows under “Media” on Buddypress profile

2- When I click to go to media, I only see text (no video, photos or audio shows on default media page)

3- There is no options in rtMedia >> settings >> Buddypress to create “Albums”. I switched all the to enable under “Buddypress”, but still no options to create “Album”

Any tricks!



Please check this doc -> for media tab issue in BuddyPress theme.

Once media tab renders properly, you will see an option to create new album.


I added the code below in my theme’s functions.php file:

function rtmedia_main_template_include($template, $new_rt_template) { return get_page_template(); } add_filter(‘rtmedia_main_template_include’, ‘rtmedia_main_template_include’, 20, 2);

When I click on “Media” tab on buddupress profile, I get the message below on the media page:

Hi William, also apply the solution suggested in comment of this doc ->

Hello. Nothing changed after following the instruction of adding the above script to functions.php. I think the big problem here is that rtMedia has it’s own template, which is really not the way is recommended to to develop a plugin for Buddypress according to the developpers of Buddypress:

@williambize – (I dont work for rtcamp, I’m just a purchaser of a number of their plugins). The problem isnt rtMedia. The problem is your using crappy themes that arent designed well for BuddyPress. If you use a better theme, you’ll get better results. If you use themes made by idiots, you’ll get the results that your experiencing now. :smile: Not all themes are designed well (most arent, in fact).

@williambize rtMedia templates are correctly implemented. You can test rtMedia with Twenty Twelve, Twenty Thirteen or Twenty Fourteen themes.

Also, there are third party themes which extend rtMedia templates further.

You can check list of few themes here -

Alright. Thanks!
