    Need to change to this to “media” having the name of the plugin as the slug is bad for us… and probably is for most people

    found solution here: https://buddydev.com/mediapress/topics/api-guides/configuring-mediapress-internals/

    Thank you very much

    If you allow flexibility like this, your plugin will be very popular very fast…. I’m a fan and very grateful for your work!

    Hi Nauti,
    Currently you can do it via bp-custom.php

    
    if ( ! defined( 'MPP_GALLERY_SLUG' ) ) {
            define( 'MPP_GALLERY_SLUG', 'xyz' );
    	}
    

    It is there to avoid slug conflict if you are already using an existing gallery plugin. As mentioned above, you can change it from bp-custom.php and in future, I will provide a setting option to do the same.

    Hope that helps.

    this function will correctly change the slug but breaks styling and page scrolling. Also

    define( ‘MPP_GALLERY_SLUG’, ‘media’);//rename mediapress to album

    Thoughts? Seen this before yet?

    “media” is used internally and is reserved, please use “gallery”, “album” , “photos” etc.

    Please do note that following are reserved and might have side effects. reserved names
    1. media
    2. photo, audio,video,docs( Any media type should be considered reserved)
    3. ‘manage’, ‘edit’, ‘delete’, ‘change-cover’ these are action names and should be avoided too

    You can use photos(note the s) or videos etc or even gallery/album or anything except the above 5. In any case, do not use ‘media’ at all. It is registered as an end point and has very special meaning. The behaviour is unpredictable for media.
    Hope that helps.
