How to change image size !??! (16 posts)

    Guys come on, how on Earth can I change the size of the image showed in the activity stream?
    Right now is displaying a funny mini-size of 70px hight, and that does not come from the CSS!

    Why did you hide these basic settings in the core files !?!

    And if so ... WHERE?!

    I have tried with css .. no chance.
    The size is set-up in the plugin core-code somewhere, and I need to change that!

    Anybody?

    Thanks a bunch!

    candy2012,

    I agree...and would like to change the image size too. I've been customizing this plugin by altering the CSS, PHP and JS files. I've backed up my changes of course to compare with any updates to the plugin. It would be great to have a settings page in the admin for these values...all websites/themes are not the same nor should added functionality look the same.

    I was able to replace the icons and change the button colors, video size, embedded link & thumbnail sizes. I was also able to change the image preview size so I have a nice even grid of 3 images across when uploading multiple images. I still haven't found the activity stream image size...such a small image in the activity stream looks incredibly ridiculous. When I find it I will post what needs to be altered here.

    If anyone else figures it out please post!

    I was able to alter the image size in the activity stream by making two changes which did the trick:

    Open the file wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus/class_bpfb_binder.php. Around lines 35 to 38 you'll see this code:

    $thumb_w = get_option('thumbnail_size_w');
    $thumb_w = $thumb_w ? $thumb_w : 575;
    $thumb_h = get_option('thumbnail_size_h');
    $thumb_h = $thumb_h ? $thumb_h : 575;

    I am using 575 for my image dimensions, of course change this to whatever you would like it to be. I've also added this line to the wp-config.php file in the WordPress root directory just under the language definition:

    define('BPFB_THUMBNAIL_IMAGE_SIZE', '575x575');

    Note: My theme already uses a modal window (lightbox) which caused the images to open two lightboxes at the same time. I've chosen to use the theme's version for consistency throughout the site. Adding this to wp-config.php just under the image size shuts off the thickbox use within BuddyPress Activity Plus:

    define('BPFB_USE_THICKBOX', false);

    I hope this works for you.

    @GinaB.Multiplicity your posts are always so polite and nice, but unfortunately they do not answer questions nor show us how to solve problems. Photo uploading and hotlinking directly to the activity stream is super important to Buddypress, in fact so important that Buddypress is almost worthless without this plugin. But when pictures do not resize to a specified (either in css or admin) size, then the photo part of Activity Press is equally worthless.

    Please don't let this plugin go to waste. Help the users figure out how to resize... pretty please.

    Stepping in to back up Gina here.

    There was an update that allows you to re-size photos. If you consult the usage instructions on the plugin page from the development company you can find them there :)

    Usage and Customization:

    To use custom icons in your theme, use add_theme_support("bpfb_toolbar_icons"); in your functions.php, copy over the rules from css/bpfb_toolbar.css and edit to suit your needs.

    Alternatively, if you're OK with 32x32 icon sizes, you can just override the icons in your stylesheet using background property and !important. These are the IDs: #bpfb_addPhotos, #bpfb_addVideos, #bpfb_addLinks, #bpfb_addDocuments

    you can also set your preferred thumbnail size separately from your default thumbnail size settings, if you wish to do so. You can do that by adding this line to your wp-config.php:

    define('BPFB_THUMBNAIL_IMAGE_SIZE', '200x200');

    Where "200x200" are width and height (in that order), in pixels.

    Finally, be sure to verify your default sizes for embedded media. It's in Settings -> Media -> Embeds -> Maximum embed size
    Limiting photo uploads

    You also have the capability to limit photo uploads by users. Upon first install the limit will be set to 5. However you can change it to anything you like by adding something like this to your wp-config.php: define('BPFB_IMAGE_LIMIT', 5, true);

    So, for an example, to increase the image limit to, say, 10, you would add this to your wp-config.php:

    define('BPFB_IMAGE_LIMIT', 10, true);

    To remove limits entirely and allow unlimited number of images to be shared, just set it to zero, like this:

    define('BPFB_IMAGE_LIMIT', 0, true);

    This is in response to drome22's post about disabling the activity plus thickbox. I'm using the Salutation theme which uses a default colorbox. I did what you said about the define('BPFB_USE_THICKBOX', false); but that brought in another issue:

    When images were posted with very less content (i.e. within the truncate limit before ‘Read more’ shows up in Buddypress), they opened up fine in my theme's thickbox successfully but when images were added along with a lot of text content so that on posting, they were placed within the ‘Read more’ content, they would NOT open in a thickbox. Instead they would open as images in the parent window making the user go back to the page he was viewing by clicking ‘Back’ after he was done seeing the full image. This was a big problem.

    To fix this, I followed this process:

    http://customwebdesignseo.com/groups/buddypress/snippets/14/

    This worked like a charm! Now all images open in my theme’s beautiful built in lightbox while the Activity plus lightbox (which is ugly looking) is disabled.

    @customwebdesignseo

    I have also used the Salutation theme for a project but cannot replicate the issue you mentioned. Your solution looks good and if it works for other users of the great Salutation theme, even better. I am always interested in finding more efficient ways of accomplishing tasks and fixing problems. Could you please be more specific about where and in what circumstance you were having the problem as stated in your post:

    When images were posted with very less content (i.e. within the truncate limit before ‘Read more’ shows up in Buddypress), they opened up fine in my theme's thickbox successfully but when images were added along with a lot of text content so that on posting, they were placed within the ‘Read more’ content, they would NOT open in a thickbox.

    Is this when a blog post or an external website is added to the activity stream? Please explain the exact condition in which this was happening so I can identify and address this issue if it exists on my website. Thanks

    @customwebdesignseo,

    Thanks for the snippet - in fact, you can get pretty much the same effect without changing the plugin files, using the BPFB_USE_THICKBOX define. To assign a class name different than "thickbox" to your image links as you do in your snippet, you can do something like this:

    define('BPFB_USE_THICKBOX', 'mycodename');

    Of course, going by your snippet, you'll still need that extra bit of JS to wire Colorbox and your image links to work together.

    Add something like this to bp-custom.php

    define('BPFB_THUMBNAIL_IMAGE_SIZE', '400x200');

    Hi guys. It's easy to resize and even to use thickbox with Activity Plus.
    A friend of mine told me this topic has been around for quite long and I decided to take a look at the code.
    You can see a working example at http://dxdx.net63.net/activity
    You can see the code for resizing images in Activity Plus at
    http://73s.us/LkB8bM
    I'll post on how to use thick box for liked images in Activity plus shortly.

    Have fun.

    Hi Guys I started running with LU5DX thoughts and as per Forest Gump I'm still running.

    The journey has become extended because whilst the resize suggestion of LU5DX worked it also distorts the image shape in an unattractive way, after a bit of searching I realised for my needs the answer is to specify only the width element.

    See first code example below.

    Anyway during the search for how this should be done I came across resize() found on http://joedesigns.com/v22/?page=scripts_widgets&id=67

    a chief benefit of which effectivly a lesson on how to manage a cache
    which I thought would be a sensible addition to activity plus but I needed to modify it in order to handle query scripts in the url.
    i.e http://www.inthesaddle.com/wms/modules/rides/image.php?i=79&w=940&h=320&format=jpg&crop=1

    Anyway my mod of resize() creates the files perfectly. But.........
    Something I dont understand is going on whereby the image is not displayed correctly in the browser in its intended context (the members page of the site).

    The files are where they should be and when I view source - everything appears to be how it should be.
    I confirmed this by copying the view source output into localhost/test.html

    where it displays in the browser correctly

    However if the url in the address bar of the browser is localhost/members/andy

    it fails to display as mentioned!!!

    So I guess this is down to permalinks but please correct me / point me in the right direction if you have more insight than I - cheers.

    Hi All,

    I am not sure what to do in my case.

    I am using buddypress activity plus. When somebody upload the image using url option the images are shown at full size with no links the lightbox. but when somebody upload a image to post, it shows small size of image with link to full size lightbox image.

    I just want to increase the size of thumbnail of uploaded images, presently either hight or width never goes more then 150px.
    I want to set this maxheight and maxwidth to something 250px or 300px.

    I have tried to increase height and width value at line 36 and 38 of wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus/lib/class_bpfb_binder.php

    But its not work.

    Please help somebody!

    Thanks

    Hey there!

    Have you tried to adjust the thumbnail size in your Site Settings?

    Best,
