Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Activity Plus » Buttons for Image/Video Upload do not show up

  • Resolved bergblume



    I have integrated successfully the post-form of what´s new within my index.php of my theme by integrating this code

    unfortunately I do not see here the activity plus buttons (for links, images and videos).

    what do I have to do to get them also on my front page (Index homepage)? (but without setting whole buddypress site on home and only together with the stand alone post-form!)

    thanks a lot for helping!

  • ok! I solved it now!

    I copied my header.php and renamed it to header-activity.php
    in this file I copied the following code in the head-area

    <link rel='stylesheet' id='file_uploader_style-css'  href='./wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus/css/external/fileuploader.css?ver=3.3.1' type='text/css' media='all' />
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='bpfb_interface_style-css'  href='./wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus/css/bpfb_interface.css?ver=3.3.1' type='text/css' media='all' />
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='bpfb_toolbar_icons-css'  href='./wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus/css/bpfb_toolbar.css?ver=3.3.1' type='text/css' media='all' />
    <script type="text/javascript">var _bpfbRootUrl="./wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus";var _bpfbTempImageUrl="./wp-content/uploads/bpfb/tmp/";var _bpfbBaseImageUrl="./wp-content/uploads/bpfb/";</script><script type="text/javascript">
    <script type='text/javascript' src='./wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus/js/external/fileuploader.js?ver=3.3.1'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    /* <![CDATA[ */
    var l10nBpfb = {"add_photos":"Add photos","add_remote_image":"Add image URL","add_another_remote_image":"Add another image URL","add_videos":"Add videos","add_video":"Add video","add_links":"Add links","add_link":"Add link","add":"Add","cancel":"Cancel","preview":"Preview","choose_thumbnail":"Choose thumbnail","no_thumbnail":"No thumbnail","paste_video_url":"Paste video URL here","paste_link_url":"Paste link here"};
    /* ]]> */
    <script type='text/javascript' src='./wp-content/plugins/buddypress-activity-plus/js/bpfb_interface.js?ver=3.3.1'></script>

    in my index.php I`ve replaced
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/header-activity.php'); ?>

    I hope it helps s.o. else with the same problem of using the post-box as stand-alone on any other wordpress-site!

    thanks very much for the tips. It did not work for me. I tried to find the code in header but there are not that codes there. I could not find any clue of where the buddypress activity plus codes are. I checked with every php file but I have not any idea where to find the “what’s new” code with all different types of content formats that bp activity plus should support.

    The what’s new form in the activity stream works perfect with different types of content input (txt, picture, video, camera).

    I copied the post-form.php in my homepage.php (try to add the what’s new form in the homepage) but the form shown on homepage is only text format. Do you have any idea what is going wrong and how can I fix the problem?
    My site is:



    the post-form.php looks like this. I have not find an idea how to add with different format of content input for the what’s new form. It is strange that the bp activity plus works great in the activity stream page.
