[resolved] 1.4.1 not working on iPad (19 posts)

    Hello, I've updated the plugin from version 1.3.1 to the latest 1.4.1, but after the update, I've lost the ability to use it on iPad. When I load my stream on a pc, the plugin works correctly, showing the 3 buttons below the textbox. But on the iPad, the buttons doesn't show up, so I had to revert to 1.3.1

    Screenshots:

    on iPad browser: http://cl.ly/0M0U3R1Y3C1j3P15370u

    Any idea?

    Thanks!

    And I'm glad to see it's not just me too :) I thought it was my fault.

    So you say it's working with 1.4, good I'll download it, at least I will upgrade from my older one :)

    Hope the developer will fix it :) And it's not working on iPhone too, with the BP-mobile theme, so it's not theme-related.

    Same issue. Yet another reason you should never use anything from WPMUDEV.

    It is very strange that Buddypress.org hasn't integrated links/video/photos to the Activity Stream and that we depend only on WPMUDEV for this one plugin to solve an extremely obvious and basic issue for ANY social networking solution (it is inconceivable not to have media uploading capacities in the Activity Stream).

    Also it is incredible that only ONE plugin exists to solve this thing...thx to the lack of competition the developer of this plugin rests on a very incomplete solution with no apparent sense of urgency to make it better (please someone develop a competing plugin!).

    Everything is wrong with this plugin, maybe the developer never uses any social media sites, its the only explanation.

    In the meantime I adhere to the needs of this forum that it is imperative that this plugin must be compatible with iOS6 (all apple products).

    IT IS URGENT!!!!!!!

    NOTE: The fact that this plugin is offered for free does not give license to the developer to make it lousy...it undermines the whole open-source wordpress enterprise.

    This is a suggestion:

    It would be very practical too if a link to upload and share documents was also included in this plugin:

    Photos / Videos / Links / Docs

    I know Buddypress docs exists, but it works only in groups and as a sepparate page and not as an addition to the Activity Stream.

    Regards, Donald.

  10. NOTE: The fact that this plugin is offered for free does not give license to the developer to make it lousy...it undermines the whole open-source wordpress enterprise.

    Sure it does. Just as you have the option to code your own or just don't use this one.

    Rather than hoping on this exist topic, please create your own.

    in the interface file (bpfb_interface.js) look up for this line

    // Only initialize if we're supposed to.
    if (!('ontouchstart' in document.documentElement)) {
    	if ($("#whats-new-form").is(":visible")) init();
    }

    and replace it for this one

    // Only initialize if we're supposed to.
    if ((document.documentElement)) {
    	if ($("#whats-new-form").is(":visible")) init();
    }

    i tested on iPad 1 & 2, also on iPhone 4 & 4s and did work like a charm, i just fix mine right now. i hope it work for everyone else. :)

    a side note, if you have iOS 6 you will be able to upload pictures from your camera roll, yeah! :)

    Hi there,

    We're just tidying up the support forums for our plugins and noticed you never received a response on this thread from our staff. We're sorry we missed the thread, but we're glad to see a solution was provided. I'll pass this onto our devs for a patch up.

    If the OP would kindly mark the thread as resolved it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    WPMU DEV was called out, so they now jump on a 9 month old post....quick action guys...maybe it took so long because this is regarding a free plugin and not one of your outrageous $39 a month ones.

    This is how WPMU describes the plugin: "BuddyPress Activity Plus was created to provide the same ease that Facebook has when it comes to uploading and sharing media across the network." Really?

    I have read several forums where people are outright begging you guys to make this plugin better and do what it SHOULD be doing to be worth anything...but I guess cause it's free, there's no urgency...and yes, on a normal basis I DO have respect for developers who create plugins that are free. I have tons of patience with them too...BECAUSE they charge nothing. But WPMU makes money hand over fist selling the same product over and over again, while throwing a few "free" bones once in awhile while they collect $39 from God knows how many people per month.
    I see how they "pacify" their paying customers by saying "we'll see how many other members request the same feature and we'll decide then". Then months later, the same poor soul who requested the features has to reach out to WPMU...again...and ask "what did you decide" and they are told "Sorry, not enough members requested those features" Seriously? One of those features that was requested is the SAME issue discussed in this thread! If they would have listened to the feature then, this thread wouldn't exist now. This is the post with the requests. http://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/three-feature-requests-for-buddypress-activity-plus-plugin

    Each request is a needed one. especially if WPMU wants to live up to their description of the plugin. As you can see that post was over a year ago and this plugin STILL can't make individual albums LIKE FACEBOOK. Also, when you view most posts regarding problems with this plugin, like this thread, it's the MEMBERS wsho find the solution while the PAID DEVELOPERS say "Wow, didn't realize no one responded to this post yet. Oh cool! you found a solution. Moderator, please mark this as resolved because our unpaid members just gave us the solution to the problem."

    Now, the one plugin out there that IS capable (Buddypress Media)of creating seperate albums, is now conflicting with Activity Plus. The links do not work unless I deactivate Buddypress Media, but since I need more than ONE photo album AND the link feature for my members,and WPMU developers would rather improve their paid plugins first, I am forced to seek help.

    Since I am not a paying WPMU member, nor will I ever be, I can not expect a solution from them. So, I will contact the developers of Buddypress Media and ask them for a fix around to make WPMU's plugin work too. I am sure Jan will attempt to "put me in my place like she/he? did with Donald, who actually pays $39 a month to be told to code his own plugin...wow... Last time I checked, we live in a country that you should be able to speak your piece and not be talked down by someone...people are so brave behind a keyboard, aren't they?...

  19. Hey sugartoys

    I'm not sure if your code ever made it to our developer, I've informed him so he's aware.

    Thanks for dropping that in here, real appreciated!

    Looks like you've helped a few people here, and I believe you have an account with us.

    Please use our contact forms and address a message to me whilst linking back to this thread. As a thank you, I'll sub you some free membership! :)

    Hey Lisalooch.

    Well, I'm not so sure where we were apparently "called out", certainly not why we're jumping on old threads. ;)

    We're jumping on older threads because we have more resources available to offer free support, on free products, developed free. Part of this drive is to provide better support in locations like these forums, which traditionally didn't take priority, because our paying customers obviously came first.

    It costs money to employ staff to provide free support, not everyone volunteers to help others like you do, out of the kindness of your heart. *checking other posts in your profile* Actually, it seems you like to post rants on WordPress.org. I don't see you giving back to help others in the WordPress community.

    I'm not sure that using the WordPress support forums is really the platform for this sort of thing, it really is a support community where people come together to help each other out.

    Last time I checked, we live in a country that you should be able to speak your piece and not be talked down by someone...people are so brave behind a keyboard, aren't they?...

    Pot and Kettle?

    Is this a country called internet? Because last time I checked it was the "World Wide Web".

    Surely Jan is entitled to the same privileges as you, right?

    And certainly doesn't appear to have been speaking down to anyone.

    Anyway, I look forward to seeing all your freely coded plugins being handed out here along with you're own quality support to assist other members with WordPress and every issue that comes up.

    Take care and have a fantastic day!
