Does the job, hopefully I can help contribute to improve it 🙂
With this plugin you can write blogposts limit to a buddypress group or to the world from the buddypress frontend. You can use it as wiki or for filemanagement. There are many ways. It’s a very mighty plugin. Thank you guys for this awesome tool.
Some kind of comment/chat feature within the documents is a BIG absence. Without it, group editing is VERY primitive. I want to look at a document and see the presence of multiple editors, see who’s made each revision, and have an easily useable chat/comment feature as well (some way of commenting ON the revisions). Yup, I teach writing…
It’s still great in lots of ways, but if you pitch it as a rival to the Big G, I feel it’s fair to point out why (unfortunately) it doesn’t compete for my purposes.
Plug in works but the text is not formatting properly.
How do i add a screenshot??
The plugin is very good but does not support comments in documents. This is a very important feature that should not be missed
