Enhancement Request: Provide metabox for editing Group Photos in backend of Groups

Component: Groups Keywords: has-screenshots, needs-patch, trac-tidy-2018



Wanted to request a feature, apologies if it's already been requested previously.

I was surprised to find there wasn't a way to edit the Group Photo from the backend of a Group. Would be handy to introduce a metabox for editing the Group Photo similar to the Profile Photo metabox found on the Extended Profile tab of a users backend profile. Or like the featured image metabox that's found on posts and CPTs.

Screen of Profile Photo Editor metabox;

Personally I prefer using the backend editor with everything available on one page over the front-end manage tab where everything is in separate tabs so introducing the Photo editor allows me to keep my workflow minimal without needing to jump to the front-end manage of a group.

Thank you

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
