Templating System

Note: You may try this quick-fix first, which solved more than 90% of theme compatibility issues.

The templating system in rtMedia works in a standard way.

Customizing Templates

To customize the templates, just copy the /wp-content/plugins/rtmedia/templates/ or /wp-content/plugins/buddypress-media/templates/ directory to your current theme's directory and rename it rtmedia.

If rtMedia finds the relevant template inside the {your_theme}/rtmedia/ directory, it is loaded instead of the one included with the plugin.

After this, you can modify the template files to your need.

Template Files

  • main.php
  • media/album-gallery.php
  • media/album-gallery-item.php
  • media/album-single-edit.php
  • media/media-gallery.php
  • media/media-gallery-item.php
  • media/media-single.php
  • media/media-single-edit.php
  • upload/uploader.php

main.php

The main template responsible for the rtMedia template outputs

album-gallery.php

Displays a list of albums

album-gallery-item.php

Displays a single item in the list on album-gallery.php

album-single-edit.php

Displays the edit screen of an album

media-gallery.php

This template is used to display lists of media, when using the shortcode, or on a BuddyPress component.

media-gallery-item.php

Used to render each media item or album in a gallery view

media-single.php

Used for displaying a single media item (for example, in the lightbox)

media-single-edit.php

Displays the edit screen for a single media

uploader.php

Used for displaying the Anywhere uploader using the shortcode, or on BuddyPress components

Important Notes

As many features of rtMedia depend on Javascript, it is not advisable to change the markup a lot. It is also not advisable to remove any class or id definitions. At the most, additional classes should be added. Any additional data that needs to be displayed in any of the templates should be done using appropriate hooks and filters.
