    I know there are bp-simple-front-end-post and buddyblog on your official site, but anyway to enable rich editor and insert inline images at frontend post form please?

    Firstly, here is my marketing research from Buddypress users:

    Question: What are the differences between wordpress frontend posting and BBpress Posting?

    The answer is NO. from 97% BP users.

    Because they just think it is a place or space for them to write article or express what they are thinking.

    The above is totally user-sense, right? and it is totally different with technical sense.

    Features of a plugin of Buddypress frontend Post:

    1# Frontend post on Bp user profile page
    2#Allow Rich editor, just like some WordPress frontend post plugins, like these two:

    3.#Support Insert inline Images into posts, BUT WITHOUT NEED TO ACCESS WORDPRESS MEDIA LIBRARY.

    BECAUSE the BP USERS DO NOT THINK THEY NEED, and it is even a TROUBLE FOR THEM TO ACCESS MEDIA LIBRARY, BECAUSE they think there is no difference between WP posting and FORUM posting, they are both just ONE SAME THING: posting.

    So, the reasonable FEATURE of BP frontend post is just support insert inline images, and no need support users to access WordPress media library, just like what a plugin of BBpress does: https://wordpress.org/plugins/image-upload-for-bbpress/

    So, ONLY insert inline images(without url input).

    I know it need at lease contributor capacity to upload images for post, BUT, there must be a way to resolve this task, right?

    4#NO need Featured image setting at frontend post form, because most of theme support the first image as the featured image.

    There is plugin of social-articles: https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-articles/

    It support Rich content editor and set featured image, it is very close to what I describe, unfortunately, it does not support insert inline images into post content.

    It would much great if you can do that, this is a last mile for a PERFECT Buddypress frontend post plugin.

    What do you think?

    Thanks, and have a nice day.

    Hi Alex,
    Thank you for the topic.

    1. We already support rich text editor out of the box.

    At the moment, we do not support inline image.
    We are about to release BuddyBlog 2(anytime this month) which works without BP Simple Front end post and allows creating structured content/articles(if desired).

    It still needs a lot of work as we plan to support multiple post types and a few more things. I have got one of our members to test the structured feature(creating extra fields for content post/edit) and it was good.

    When I release it this month, I will be looking at adding inline image upload support(most probably adding support for a 3rd party plugin).

    Thank you
