rtMedia Monthly Update- February 2017

rtMedia is designed to be a one-stop solution for media websites on BuddyPress & WordPress. With our latest point release, we are excited to introduce “Comment Media”, a feature that adds another dimension to media comments.

Your users can now upload media directly into BuddyPress Activity media comment threads. Conversations are much more engaging and interesting with attached media! The Comment Media uploader allows all supported media types.

BuddyPress Comment Media with rtMedia 4.3

Other enhancements include a new toggle for media “Likes” under rtMedia Settings > Display > Enable likes for media and a few new hooks to help you customize your website. We have also fixed Media tab pagination and patched privacy issues in Comment Media and Media Likes.

All these and more are included in rtMedia Core version 4.3 – just update to this version from your Dashboard or download it (for free) from the WordPress plugin directory. For a list of all the changes, refer to the changelog below. Check out our Demo website to test out rtMedia 4.3.
