rtMedia for WordPress, BuddyPress, and bbPress

The rtMedia for WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is the complete media solution for your websites.

The plugin integrates with BuddyPress to allow your users to upload media to activity status updates, control the privacy of the albums, add featured media for cover photos, and is 100% responsive for mobile devices.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website if you intend to use it for BuddyPress and bbPress.

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.
