    Hi,

    Is it somehow possible to add multiple video's in sidebar?
    Which files do I have to adjust?

    Not currently. You would need to create multiple, uniquely named profile fields and then reference those in the widget output. I'm working on an update to the plugin that will create the fields automatically, which should allow multiple instances.

    May I ask this question again ?

    I am about to make a cool community website with your plugin, and really need to have multiple videos from each members.

    Before editing the plugin myself ( which will take long because I'm not that good programer.. ), I'm curious about the development of this update...

    Thanks !

    Hey Martin,

    I haven't made much headway on getting multiple instances to work and I'm not sure when I'll have time to get it to work. I work at a university and the beginning of the semester is always a crazy time for me. The complexity in doing a BuddyPress widget with multiple instances is the plugin would need a unique profile fields for each video and a way to access each of those unique fields, but done in a way that doesn't require someone to manually create each field. I tried one method and it just didn't work and I had other bugs to fix.

    You're welcome to make modifications yourself and let us know what works and what doesn't. :)

    I guess there could be a choice made by the webmaster when choosing which widget will be created.

    Since the fields are created only at the setting of the plugin ( i.e. when choosing the video widget ), there could be a dropdown menu asking how many videos will be allowed...

    Creating one or more set of fields might be almost the same ?

    After that, if the set of field isn't null, the video displays... until it reaches an empty set of fields ( if the user has less than the max allowed ).

    I'm just talking about the logic... As I said earlier, I'm not really into programming...
