Support » Plugin: bbPress Topic Thumbnails » Can this be (relatively easily) modified to work with BuddyPress Group Forums?

  • Resolved jeffacubed


    First off, thanks so much for building this plugin – I’ve been on the lookout for the way to add thumbnail support to bbpress topics for quite some time!

    My question is fairly specific, here goes: Could the core of this plugin be modified to create topic thumbnails in BuddyPress / Groups / Group Forums? Buddypress does rely on bbpress to create ‘forums + topics’ in the group forums area, so I’m curious how feasible it would be make this plugin work with Group Forums in Buddypress?

    Curious to hear anyone’s thoughts/ideas on this.

    It would just be a matter of swapping the bbp_theme_before_topic_title hook for whatever the BuddyPress equivalent is.

    I don’t have any experience with BP, but (knowing JJJ) it would be an absolute cinch to implement.

    Thanks Shane,

    I totally see the logic of swapping ‘bbp_theme_before_topic_title’ for the BP equivalent. I’ve done some testing with using a buddypress plugin called ‘U Form Attachment & Editor’ which unlike GD Attachments, puts the actual <img /> tag into the topic content area. I thought I’d get lucky with simple changing the hook you mentioned to ‘groups_forum_new_topic_before’ but that does not seem to be the equivalent buddypress (group forums) hook. Thanks for the suggestion, & I’m fairly sure that IF I can find the equivalent hook – then your suggestion above (swapping the hook) would work in buddypress.
