    Hi,

    I'm looking for the best way to develop a website with:
    - Company profiles
    - A company got contacts (the users)
    - Users should be able to discuss with each other in a forum
    - Users should be able to make notes (also a forum?) with some users
    - Users should be able to send private messages to an other user.

    We are looking at BuddyPress, but can't see how we could add the company profile to a user?
    The company profiles should/could be added by the webmaster.
    The Groups in BuddyPress seems to be enabled to use the forums.. we don't want users to add new groups.

    So is it better to do it with BBPress and maybe the Pods pluggin or should we use BuddyPress?

    Many thanks

    The easiest bet is BuddyPress + bbPress (already integrated).

    For company profiles, you can use Custom Post Types and theming or Pods, depends on your exact needs for the data and your PHP skillz.

    Ok,
    We installed BP and bbP already.. so we're on the right track..

    Can you tell me how we can connect users to a custom post type on a pod.

    Pods 2.0 will fully support Custom Post Types and Taxonomies, as well as create / extend them. For now, you'd have to set up an input helper w/ a custom drop-down and store the values in a non-pick column.
