I have installed mingle on one of my blogs. rest is okay but some pages are not showing up for example private messaging option was not there at any stage of configuration. Is it a a paid option? more over the profile page has no view profile option.i mean to say lets say i am browsing profiles but there is no option to view profiles. But over all I find this mingle plugin far far better than buddy press. Buddy press is not a buddy from any side its a real enemy. you have to fight a lot before installing it and after installation as well.
