BuddyPress Docs
Expanding Table Functionality (12 posts)

    Currently, we are using Buddypress Docs, as part of our Intranet solution along with Buddypress. Both are working great, but I ran into a little snag that I was hoping someone has worked through, or could be considered an enhancement request.

    We use a lot of tables in the Docs, to keep up with various pieces of information, and right now the only time you can create a table or expand a table is at the documents creation.

    Does anyone know of a way to make it possible where the tables could be made longer after a document is created?

    It's true that TinyMCE disables the Rows and Columns fields after a table exists. But you should be able to expand an existing table by using the other controls: "Insert row before" and "Insert row after".

    Thank you for getting back to me, and I see the insert row before/after, on the backend of Buddypress.

    Do you know if it is possible to enable this feature on the frontend while editing a document?

    The buttons should be there whether you're on the front or back end.

    What versions of WP/BP/BP Docs are you running? What browser are you using? What theme?

    Currently I am using WordPress 3.4.1, Buddypress 1.5.6, Buddypress Docs 1.1.24.

    I have tested on the following Browsers, Chrome 20.0.1132.57, Firefox 13.01, Opera 12.00, and Safari 5.1.7.

    My theme is Buddypress Colours version 1.0.

    Could you share a screenshot? It'll be helpful if I can see which buttons are and are not being rendered.

    Is it possible for you to switch to the BuddyPress Default, just for a moment, to test whether the same thing is happening there too?

    I just made the switch back to the default template, and I am still not seeing the buttons on the frontend.

    I also brought up a second installation just to check, and was not able to seem them on that installation either.

    Thanks for testing.

    I found a typo that may be causing your problem. Would you mind helping me to test?

    Through an FTP editor, navigate to: wp-content/plugins/buddypress-docs/includes/js/. Open the file bp-docs.js in a text editor. Find the line (it should be 75 or thereabouts) that reads:

    var doc_id = $("#existing-doc-id").val();

    Change the '$' to 'jQuery':

    var doc_id = jQuery("#existing-doc-id").val();

    Save the file, and test from the front end again (you'll have to refresh the page in your browser). You should see that the third row of items - the table functions - appear on the third row of the editor buttons.

    That was the magic trick. Thank you very much for getting to this so quickly. You ever need a beta tester let me know, and I would be more than happy to help.

    Cool, glad it worked! I'll release a new version soon with the fix. Thanks for your help tracking it down.
