[resolved] How to instruct group file sharing process to new users? (5 posts)

    We are using this fantastic plug-in for file sharing among group members. However, it is not very intuitive for new users to locate file upload page. They don't know the file upload is located in the user profile.
    Is it possible to add a link and description inside group buddyDrive which redirect users to their profile buddyDrive ?

    Hi @sepidpooy

    Just added a link to logged in user's BuddyDrive profile page in the trunk version of the plugin. You can test it if you want by downloading it here :

    If the text/title doesn't suits you, you can use the filter 'buddydrive_user_buddydrive_url' to change it for whatever you like.

    this is an example of doing it :

    function filter_buddydrive_user_url( $output = '' ) {
    	$output = '<a href="'. buddydrive_get_user_buddydrive_url() .'" title="whatever you like" class="buddydrive-profile"><i class="bd-icon-createfile"></i> whatever you like</a>';
    add_filter( 'buddydrive_user_buddydrive_url', 'filter_buddydrive_user_url', 10, 1 );

    One more comment about the buddyDrive page in the user profile. It would be nice to have all buddyDrive icons (e.g Root, New file, New Folder etc.) in one row. Right not the Root icon is located in "buddydrive-crumbs" div and the others are located in "item-list-tabs" div. Therefore they show up in separate row.

    To me it makes the page more beautiful to vertically align all icons with the same theme in one row.

    I think you already did align them in the buddyPress page at groups. The Root icon in float=left and New File icon is float=right in the same row.
