  • Resolved maineyak


    I don’t see an option where to add albums. The only place I saw mention of albums is when I went to upload multiple photos at once, I got the prompt to add a new album. Other than that, I don’t see where to add albums, or where to delete existing albums.

    Another question. When I upload a photo, I don’t get the option to add a description. I have to go back and edit it to add the description. Is it supposed to give me the option to add the description after it uploads?

    Additional album related features will be addd soon.

    You will get more options including things like moving photos from one album to other, choosing cover photo, etc.

    You can track progress on Github:

    Thanks for the additional album related features that may be added soon. But the problem here is that adding single photo doesn’t give you an option to chose or create an album except for adding two or more photos at once. Adding single photo automatically places it in the default wall photos album. That is the problem here. Hope you’ll give this a fix too.
    Thanks in advance!

    This will be fixed soon. Hopefully within 10-15 days.

    Sorry for inconvenience.

    Line 21 of bp-media-uploader.js in /buddypress-media/includes/js change from

    if(bp_media_album_selected == false&&bp_media_is_multiple_upload==true){


            if(bp_media_album_selected == false){

    This change will make all uploads forced to pick album or create new.
    I know this involves editing core plugin files and will be written over on update, but this may help those who need this feature while 2.4 is being developed.

    I’ve seen updates since this post but there is still no Album removal option which doesn’t make any sense to users.

    When will these functions be added?

    Hi @voopress,

    We’ve finalised this code. There’re some more changes that we are adding. These would take a few days, after which, you’d be able to Edit Album names and Delete albums, as well.


    That’s great news. I am assuming an update will show up on the site?

    Thank you for the quick response and we look forward to the new features which are badly needed.

    GREAT!!! Very good news, I’m waiting for it! 🙂

    Is there any way to display the latest user photos on the mainpage? Shown as a slideshow or gallery? Any idea?

    Hi there! It would be very cool to have a “Link photo” (target URL to an extern website) option. Is it possible to add this option? Thanks…

    By the way…a sharing-tool and Like-Button would be also very important

    Sorry, I’m just working with this Plugin…by work in progress, I find things are missing:

    I found the widget to display recent/popular photos. But how can I change the thumbnail size? It would be great to be able to change the sizes and hide the title of photos…

    And it would be also great to visit the next photo of an album by klicking on a photo 🙂

    Sorry, that I’m writing again and again… 😉

    I don’t think this is where you would post your suggestions. I believe there are better areas where your input will be better received.

    Oh, sorry….yes, sure!
