    Hi Neiji,
    Welcome to BuddyDev forums.
    Thank you for using MediaPress.

    To disable the multiple file selection, you can put the following line in your bp-custom.php

    add_filter( 'mpp_upload_default_settings', 'mpp_allow_single_file_selection_only');
    function mpp_allow_single_file_selection_only( $settings ) {
    	$settings['multi_selection'] = false;
    	return $settings;

    That will limit the selection of one at a time but will not stop users from selecting multiple files. Now, since we don’t want users to upload more than one file at a time, we will take a little help from javascript.

    Please put this js in your theme’s js file

    jQuery( document ).ready( function () {
    	if( _mppData == undefined ) {
    		return ;
    	mpp.guploader.isRestricted = check_file_limit;
    	mpp.activity_uploader.isRestricted = check_file_limit;
    	function check_file_limit( uploader, file ) {
    		//clear any error we had earlier
    		var size = uploader.files.length;
    		//allow selecting/uploading
    		if(  size <=1 ) {
    			return false;//no restriction
    		//remove file from queue
    		uploader.removeFile( file );
    		//remove the feedback that we added
    		this.removeFileFeedback( file );
    		//notify error message
    		mpp.notify( "Only one file can be uploaded at a time", 1 );
    		return true; //yes, this should be restricted

    That’s all you will need to do. Please try it and let me know if that works for you or not?

    Thank you
