Plugin Review – BuddyPress Message Attachment

Version Tested: V 2.1.1

BuddyPress Message Attachment is a plugin that allows files to be attached to BuddyPress private messages allowing site members to send each other files such as pdf’s.

Installation is a case of installing and activating the plugin, from there you need to visit Dashboard>>Settings>>Message Attachments in order to configure what types of files can be sent and their maximum size (dependent on your PHP configuration).

Once the plugin has been configured, all members will now have a file attachment dialogue at the bottom of their compose message page where they can select the file to attach.

This plugin works very well and provides a simple mechanism for members to privately share files. My only concern is that the file types are pre-configured via checkboxes and if your file type is not listed then you will not be able to configure this plugin to carry them. I give this plugin 9 out of 10.

I've been setting up and managing BuddyPress social networks for a few years. I moved from Ning and other platforms and have come to BuddyPress looking to make sites with similar features to them.
