    I have a problem with your plugin. I want to upload a photo or other document in activity feed of buddypress.

    I can see your buttons for upload any documents or photos but when i post my text with photo, my photo is not visible in the feed of activity

    In the form post of buddypress i have a tiny MCE with this code

    add_action('whats_new_textarea', function () {
        // deactivation of the visual tab, so user can't play with template styles
        // add_filter('user_can_richedit', create_function('$a', 'return false;'), 50);
        $content = '';
        // building the what's new textarea
        if (isset($_GET['r'])) :
            $content = esc_textarea($_GET['r']);
        // adding tinymce tools
        $editor_id = 'whats-new';
        $settings = array(
            'textarea_name' => 'whats-new',
            'teeny' => false,
            'media_buttons' => false,
            'drag_drop_upload' => true,
            'tinymce'       => array(
                'setup' => 'function (ed) {
                    tinymce.documentBaseURL = "' . get_admin_url() . '";
            'quicktags' => array(
                'buttons' => 'strong,em,link,block,del,ins,img,ul,ol,li,code,close'
        // get the editor
        wp_editor($content, $editor_id, $settings);

    And i’m override the template of post form activity

    <div id="bp-nouveau-activity-form" class="activity-update-form">
        <form action="<?php bp_activity_post_form_action(); ?>" method="post" id="whats-new-form" name="whats-new-form">
             * Fires before the activity post form.
             * @since 1.2.0
            do_action('bp_before_activity_post_form'); ?>
            <div id="whats-new-avatar">
                <a href="<?php echo bp_loggedin_user_domain(); ?>">
                    <?php bp_loggedin_user_avatar('width=' . bp_core_avatar_thumb_width() . '&height=' . bp_core_avatar_thumb_height()); ?>
            <div id="whats-new-content">
                <div id="whats-new-textarea">
                    <label for="whats-new" class="bp-screen-reader-text">
                        <?php _e('Post what\'s new', 'buddypress'); ?>
                    <?php do_action('whats_new_textarea'); ?>
                <div id="whats-new-options">

    Welcome to BuddyDev support forums.

    Is it about MediaPress or Activity Plus reloaded?

    Our plugins are currently tested with the default post form. You have a customized form that uses visual text editor and that might be the reason.

    Please let me know which plugin you are using and our team will try to test it within a week a get back to you(sorry, we are short on support for this week).

    Sorry for the late. I test again your plugin with the default form of buddypress and i can’t post a photo or media library in activity feed.

    Here my plugins :

    – BP Groups CiviCRM Sync
    – BuddyPress Group Email Subscription
    – CiviCRM
    – CiviCRM Admin Utilities
    – CiviCRM Mailer
    – CiviCRM WordPress Member Sync
    – MediaPress
    – Members
    – Reset password front end (custom plugin)
    – Starter Templates
    – User Switching
    – WPForms Lite

    my theme is astra (child theme)

    I’m searching an incompatibility with other plugin today perhaps ??

    i test the upload with 3 plugins activate : civicrm, buddypress and mediapress

    with this minimal installation i can’t put an image in feed activity

    I change the theme for wordpress default theme and it’s good. I can use your plugin

    For resume, perhaps, your plugin is not compatible with astra theme or astra child

    have you got a feedback with this compatibility problem with à wordpress theme ? Because for my use case, i must use astra theme

    Thank you for the patience.
    I have tested the plugin with Astra and the activity upload is working fine.


    It seems the problem arises due to your change on the activity text area to tinymce editor.

    We send our media ids by atatching it to the ajax request when the form is submitted. My guess is that part is not working.

    Do you have custom js for sending the activity update or is there any chance you are handling it differently server side?

    Also, Can you please remove the mediapress and use the development version from here and see if it works.
    This one has a different interface, so just trying to see if it does work for you or not?

    Please disable the Activity filter plugin by Wbcom temporarily and check? There is a small chance that it might be filtering the stream.

    I test an upload file in activity without Activity filter plugin by Wbcom without results.

    But i can see an upgrade for astra theme. In my website i have a 3.7.9 version. In repository WP i can see a new version of astra 3.7.10

    What version of astra use for your test please ?

    Thanks so lot
