Fantastic Plugin!!!

This is a really great plugin which works fantastically well with WordPress core.

Excellent!

BuddyPress is an amazing plugin that has allowed me to create closed social networks without a lot of fuss. It includes lots of things that Facebook and Twitter offer such as "The Wall", "@" replies, and internal messaging. But it does some things that Facebook and Twitter do not do well such as groups with varying degrees of privacy and forums.

Sidebar Is Distorted
By , for WP 3.8.3

Please, any help? After updating to BBPress v2.0 on WP 3.8.3 found out that the sidebar on Sitewide Activities was distorted (messed), but looks cool other pages.

Please any help?

Complete Garbage
By , for WP 3.8.2

First off, I had buddypress set up pretty well. All I wanted to do was get rid of the sidebars on certain pages that are not actually "pages" within the wordpress system. These would be like "member profile" pages and a few others. After spending hours reading through their forums that DID NOT HELP, I ended up crashing my site with a fatal error after following someones instructions. Why such a simple functionality wouldn't be built into it in the first place is beyond me.... Now I've wasted countless hours and my site just displays the following on the backend:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_get_groups_slug() in /home/codyecp/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity/bp-activity-loader.php on line 207

Cant do anything anymore with the admin panel...F*%$ buddypress!

AHHHHHHH I just spent a whole day styling this damn plugin and now my site crashes from nothing????? WTF. I'd rate it ZERO stars if I could....

Forced, badly designed features ruin the overall functionality.
By , for WP 3.8.2

On the official BuddyPress website, you are promised the option to choose which of its features you wish to use with the bold statement "BuddyPress is not 'all or nothing' ".

However, this is not entirely true.
Even with features such as "Extended Profiles" and "Account Settings" disabled, BuddyPress still drastically modifies the default bbPress user profiles to include lists items and buttons specific to other BuddyPress features.

Additionally, installing BuddyPress will likely leave your website scattered with minor bugs, such as broken title attributes and 504 errors for profile images, and due to it's incompatibility with even slightly modified bbPress themes, you're naturally lefty questioning how applicable the plugin is for anything beyond a hobby website with more serious customization.

If, however, you are not interested in compatibility with prior customization and are willing to accept all the features provided with BuddyPress, out of the box, in their full extent, you will likely overcome the minor issues relatively fast.
