I've taken a look at your github install for BP Docs and know this has already been suggested, but I wonder how much development time would be involved in creating functionality that would allow users to upload images directly to BP docs rather than including them only through image tags (which requires them to be first uploaded elsewhere). It does seem like it would be useful functionality, though I'll leave it to you to prioritize

50-100 hours. Luckily for you, someone else is paying me to do it, and it will be ready in a month or two.

Hi Boone -- just wanted to ping you on this. Can we add this feature to the CAC? It would be nice for members to be able to upload images to docs

Matt, can you clarify your use case? The Attachment feature in BuddyPress Docs allows uploads to be attached to a Doc much in the manner of attachments to an email - they appear in a list at the bottom. I can enable this, but I'm somewhat concerned that it'll compound what may already be confusion between Group Files and group forum attachments.

Or maybe you mean the ability to put images into the body of a Doc using the "Add Media" button you see in the Dashboard? On that topic, see,

Hi Boone,

The use case is the year-end report we're doing in the Commons team group. I would like Scott and Seth to be able to add screenshots to the body doc, through an "add media" button or some other mechanism.
