The future of MediaPress

    I initially had Activity Plus Reloaded on my website, and I asked for a Feature Request on it, but was told that BuddyPress will have a Media Component soon in version 10.0– so no need to go further on Feature Request for Activity Plus Reloaded.

    Then I moved to MediaPress. Now, I don’t know how Advanced the BuddyPress Media component will be, but it seems MediaPress will be more advanced, and I seem okay to want to continue to use MediaPress irrespective of whether BuddyPress comes up with a Media component or not.

    But I am curious to know:

    1.) Would MediaPress continue to be developed and supported if BuddyPress comes up with its Media component?

    2.) It was said that migration will be done to BuddyPress Media for media(s) that had earlier on been uploaded with Activity Plus Reloaded.

    Should the BuddyPress Media component be born, and it looks okay and MediaPress sees no further need to continue developing and supporting MediaPress, would you also consider the Migration of MediaPress items to BuddyPress Media component as well?

    Regards

    Hi,
    I am sorry, I missed this earlier.

    currently, we are waiting for BuddyPress 10.0 to see which direction we should take MediaPress to. Most probably, we will start focusing on Front end media uploader for WordPress.

    1. MediaPress will continue to be developed but depending on BuddyPress Media component, It will mostly compliment the BuddyPress functionality.

    2. It was said that migration will be done to BuddyPress Media for media(s) that had earlier on been uploaded with Activity Plus Reloaded.

    I am sorry, that’s not on plan.

    Regards

    If you say that there’s no plan to migrate all Media that we have uploaded with MediaPress into BuddyPress media component, are you then saying you don’t care that all our Medias in Activity Stream will be lost?

    I uploaded this Media with Activity Plus Reloaded— https://prnt.sc/1qx3lxq

    You can see that the Image is no longer there, when Activity Plus Reloaded was removed. Are we going to suffer similar fate of losing Media in Activity stream when MediaPress is removed because of BuddyPress Media Component?

    You are most probably having some incorrect assumptions.

    What I said was for “Activity Plus reloaded”. Please re-read the reply.

    For MediaPress, we will use it to complement the BuddyPress Media component and all the uploads will remain. Where do you get the idea that Media will be lost?
