  • I was looking for this too… It would be a very good feature to add.
    If anybody knows how, would be great to share the solution with us…. Thanks

    Nice idea!

    Okay, have added pdf option in two files in the plugin:


    This now allows uploading of pdf docs…

    Just need to mod it to open pdfs in a new window… can anyone help?

    Hi ajamm – any chance you could share your <custom-code> for enhancing the ability of the ‘BuddyPress Activity Plus’ plugin to handle the uploading of .pdf’s?



    Check out these code changes…

    In buddypress-activity-plus/js/bpfb_interface.js

    var uploader = new qq.FileUploader({
    			"element": $('#bpfb_tmp_photo')[0],
    			"listElement": $('#bpfb_tmp_photo_list')[0],
    			"allowedExtensions": ['jpg', 'jpeg', 'pdf', 'png', 'gif'],

    and in buddypress-activity-plus/lib/class_bpfb_binder.php
    $uploader = new qqFileUploader(array('jpg', 'pdf', 'jpeg', 'png', 'gif'));

    Still dont know how to make them open in a new window. If you find an answer to this, please share!

    As a follow up I did find on WPMU

    I did find that I could add more file types by adding them in these two files:
    js/bpfb_interface.js LINE 213 “allowedExtensions”: [‘jpg’, ‘jpeg’, ‘png’, ‘gif’, ‘pdf’],
    lib/class_bpfb_binder.php. There is LINE 163
    $uploader = new qqFileUploader(array(‘jpg’, ‘jpeg’, ‘png’, ‘gif’, ‘pdf’));

    Which 100% works to get .pdf’s uploading to the bpfb ‘media-folder’ but there’s no list/thumbnails for the pdf’s.

    Somewhere, in the activity-plus source code, there must be a way to generate small thumbnails for attached pdf? Solving this would make this bp-plugin top notch in my books!


    Before I tackle

    Still dont know how to make them open in a new window. If you find an answer to this, please share!

    Were you able to get the attached pdf’s to at least show/list in the activity stream? Using your method (ajamm) I seem the pdf’s going to the bpfb folder (so that’s working) – but what I don’t see (quite yet) is any list of the pdf’s in the activity stream. I get an activity event when I upload a pdf now (good!), but I don’t see the pdf, even when I revert back to the Buddypress default theme – curious. I’ll keep digging.

    I’m using WP (multisite) 3.5.1, bp 1.6.4

    Hello Jeff,

    I will have to go and check. I think it gave a link in the activity stream… :-S

    Can’t remember…

    Why not use buddypress group documents plugins which can be integrated with activity plus.

    Sounds interesting, not sure if I tried this one.

    What is the proper name for it, I cant find it?

    Whoa – great catch/call yzqlang – I’d forgotten abou the buddypress group documents plugin, as support for buddypress 1.5+ had dropped off some time ago. Another developer has picked up the plugin, which you can find the most recent (15/5/2012) version here

    Ajamm – I’ve tested the above group-documents w/ buddypress 1.6.4 + WordPress 3.5.1 – & everything I’ve tested works A’OK with pdf attachments into the group activity stream. All documents attachments, from the activity stream, get collected under a new group ‘tab’ (which you can name whatever you like). Overall, I’d have to say it’s a great add-on/integration w/ the bp-activity-plus plugin.

    I also want to test this out w/ bp 1.7 beta2, just to be sure of longer-term compatibility.

    Thx all √
