BP Group Documents

The BP Group Documents plugin creates a page within each BuddyPress group to upload any type of file or document.

Members of BuddyPress groups can upload and store files and documents that are relevant to the group.

The site administrator can set filters on file extensions, set display options.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
