Featured Media

Edit This Page

rtmedia_featured($user_id)

The older tag (bp_media_featured()) will continue to work till the next few versions. Kindly change all instances, ASAP.

Used to display any media that the user has set as featured. It could be a video, audio or a photo.

For this to work, the appropriate switch will need to be turned on in rtMedia > Settings >Types. Read more: rtMedia settings’ types tab.

Arguments

$user_id

(Optional, not required on user profile)

The id of the user for whom the featured media is to be fetched. For example, if an admin decides to set a media item as featured for everyone in the community, his own user id can be passed to this function.

Example

In the default BuddyPress theme, find

/members/single/member-header.php

Replace the following code:

<?php if ( bp_is_active( 'activity' ) ) : ?>
	<div id="latest-update">
		<?php bp_activity_latest_update( bp_displayed_user_id() ); ?>
	</div>
<?php endif; ?>

with:

<div id="featured-media">
	<?php rtmedia_featured(); ?>
</div>

And instead of the latest update, the featured media would show up!
