  • Hi @jlbphotos,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    I have tested it on my test site using latest version of BuddyPress Activity Plus plugin and it worked fine without any issue. ( See the screenshot )

    What version of BuddyPress Activity Plus plugin and WordPress are you using?

    Is it working fine if you use default WordPress theme like Twenty Twelve?

    Kind Regards,

    Thanks for the reply

    I’m using latest of both version 3.8.1 and 1.6

    I just changed to twenty twelve and yes the problems wasn’t there so it must be a theme issue πŸ™

    looks I got some CSS to traul through wish me luck…

    Ok strange

    when i look at the code the Iframe is pulling in at 960 width ? thoughts

    heres an image.

    Hi @jlbphotos,

    Thank you for your reply.

    The BuddyPress Activity Plus plugin uses wp_oembed_get function to retrieve video from URL.

    The plugin doesn’t pass height and width to this function so it checks for a content_width setting, and a media settings max width. If neither of those are set, then the used width will be ‘500’. If one of those values is set, it’ll use that set value.

    Same applies to the height the function checks for a media settings max height, and if there is nothing there either, it will use ‘700’.

    I hope this information will help you to understand it.

    Please advise if you have more questions.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Thanks for the links.
    I added the code as sites said no luck, still large. Thing is when its posted its fine perfect size, its just the preview size πŸ™

    I created a quick site with my theme, buddypress and activity plus

    Would it be possible for you to have a quick look please ?

    Here is the site

    The login is [redacted] password [redacted]

    If you just try and share a video on the activity stream its does the large preview thing. I have only basic plugins installed and minor css changes.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi @jlbphotos,

    Please don’t post usernames or passwords on the forum, as this is a public forum.

    Could you please try adding following CSS code in the style.css file of your child theme or add it in your site using the following plugin?

    .bpfb_preview_container iframe {
    max-width: 100% !important;


    Awesome it works great !!! Thankyou so much

    The website was a throw-away with no credentials on a test site just so i could show you the theme

    Thanks again great supoort


    You are most welcome, if I can be of any further assistance please don’t hesitate to ask πŸ™‚
