I’ve followed your suggestions above but no change.
I also apologise for the delay in following this up, in direct contrast to your speedy response! When I get the time to dedicate to this, I will debug it in earnest – at which point your pasted code snippet will no doubt be helpful in locating the issue.
Meanwhile I’m marking this as resolved as I am almost sure it is a local issue.
ps. Happy New Year 🙂
thanks and yes, it’s been a very busy time 🙂
So, the gallery are public public.
The permissions on the media are also public.
All my material is set to public.
However, the default Dash -> MediaPress -> Settings -> General -> Privacy Settings
Default status for Gallery/Media is set to
“Logged In Users Only” (It will be used when we are not allowed to get the status from user)
Perhaps this is kicking in unexpectedly?
This is not clear yet, but if so, how can I/we check or control the permissions, to avoid this issue?
ps. I have Dash -> MediaPress -> Settings -> BuddyPress
Automatically Publish to activity When? ￼
New Gallery is created. (no)
￼ New Media added/uploaded. (yes)
pps. I’m using MediaPress v1.5.1

this particular issue is on the gallery itself, eg;
So a member sees the gallery of say 16 images, and makes a general comment on it which adds a text-only entry to the feed. I believe you said previously that gallery comments were handled differently to media comments, which is entirely reasonable. I had something similar to this with the (buddyblog) blogs, which also adds a “plain” comment to the feed.
For the blogs, I built an action trigger to add an entry into the feed and to parse the blog (database record/s) for any included media using the parent_id = blog_id. I imagine something similar could be done for the galleries. In an ideal world this could be configurable to include a random image, or say up to 3 thumbnails, in the feed entry.
ok, I’ve done that, and I think that’s *much* better!
Strangely I don’t see the media when commenting from the media itself, only when from the activity feed. As this is the common case, it’s no *so* important, and I appreciate your quick-fix hugely!
I’ll close this now, as *this* is fixed. Naturally looking forward to your final solution when it arrives and fixes the myriad and complex media/comments/gallery/images/etc. things 🙂
