What I want to do:
Create a website with a few static pages linked as URLs (syllabus, grading policies, Engrade) preferrably in iframes, a forum with a series of topics (Week 1, Week 2) for students to post their thesesand a place where each of six groups has a forum/place where they can post text and images for display as they present.
Trouble I’m having:
In trying both Buddypress and other WordPress themes, there seems no way to have different groups where they can post images easily (preferably URL-based with resizing).
The plug-in Comment-Images Comment Image Embedder allows images to be embedded from URL only, but only in Comments on the main posts, not as replies in forums.
The plug-in Comment Image creates a box for upload, but again, only for Comments on the main post, and only jpg.
The plug-in Forum Attachments for Buddypress allows images to be added, but only from the hard drive, in forum replies.
Obviously I am trying to replicate Ning, which let me create six groups easily, and have each of them be able to add images using either URL or upload and then resize them by dragging the corners.
I have tried three different Buddypress themes and two regular WordPress themes. I have a week to put my class somewhere.
