Group Documents

Description

Group Documents creates a page within each BuddyPress group to upload and any type of file, attachment or document. Documents can be edited and deleted either by the document owner or by the group administrator. Categories can be used to organize documents. Activity is logged in the main activity stream, and is also tied to the user and group activity streams. The site administrator can set filters on file extensions, set display options, and upload files via FTP. Group members and moderators can receive email notifications at their option. There are also “Recent Uploads” and “Popular Downloads” widgets than can be used to show activity at a glance.

NOTE: Version 0.4.0 requires Buddypress 1.5. If you are running version 1.4 or earlier, download version 0.3.5 of this plugin.

PLEASE: If you have any issues or it doesn’t work for you, ask a question on the forums or email me: peter@studio66design.com. I’m a little behind on answering emails, but there’s a good chance I might have a quick solution. Even if I don’t respond promptly, reporting the bugs still helps them get fixed. Thanks!
