WP Symposium

Social Networking for WordPress: profile page, forum, activity, friends, member directory, mail, chat, groups, events, gallery, mobile and more!

Q. Where can I find more information? A. Go to http://www.wpsymposium.com for a demo and an active community of users. Visit http://www.wpswiki.com for further information and an admin guide.

Q. Can I try it out? A. Yep, go to http://www.wpsymposium.com

Q. Is WP Symposium covered by the GPL license? A. Yes, for sure. Everything listed on the WordPress directory is covered by the GPL v3 licence. There may be other plugins that are compatible with WP Symposium that are sold commercially, but what is provided via the download at http://www.wordpress.org will always be covered by the GPL licence.

Q. What's the one thing I probably haven't done? A. Visited the Installation page to update WP Symposium's internal paths. Check out http://www.wpswiki.com, in particular the "Try this first" page.

Q. The admin side works, but the forum (or another plugin) doesn't appear? A. Check you have [symposium-forum] on your page, with a hyphen, not an underscore. Replace [symposium-forum] with the shortcode of the plugin.

Q. I've done that, but the forum (or another plugin) still doesn't appear? A. Have you put [symposium-forum] on a WordPress page, not an HTML file?

Q. It all looks okay, but I just get a spinning "please wait" symbol? A. Read the "Try this first" page at http://www.wpswiki.com, if that still doesn't help visit http://www.wpsymposium.com. You almost certainly have a Javascript problem.

Q. Can I use other languages? A. There are a growing number of translations available to use at http://www.crowdin.net (see http://www.wpsymposium.com for further instructions). From v0.58 support for non-Western character sets was introduced (needs a fresh v0.58+ installation).

Q. Are there images other than the usual smilies? A. Yes, if you look in the smilies folder you can use any of the images there by putting {{xxx}} around the first part of the filename, eg: {{rofl}} would show rofl.png - to see the full list, go to the Smilies page at http://www.wpsymposium.com.

Q. Will WP Symposium work on WPMU/WPMS? A. Yes, WordPress Multi-site is supported, although it is not as widely used as the single site installation.

Q. I don't see friends when they're online, can't edit forum posts or read all mail in my inbox. I see stuff, but not much works... A. Sounds like AJAX isn't working, probably due to a Javascript error. Check out the "Try this first" page at http://www.wpswiki.com.

Q. There used to be a login and registration plugin, where did they go? A. After consultation with users, the majority voted to leave authentication to WordPress or other plugins such as Theme-My-Login, however in hindsight it can be introduced in a more strategic manner. There is now a sidebar widget that allows members to login, or show links to the register/forgotten password WordPress pages. Once logged in, the user can see how any messages (including those unread) and friends (including new friend requests), etc with the same widget.

Q. How can I get rid of the Powered By message? A. Use the Templates via WP Admin -> WP Symposium -> Templates.

Q. Because of all the nice AJAX, how can I get content submitted to search engines? A. There is a BETA (installation page) to use permalinks, all feedback welcome! Check out the Mobile/SEO/Accessibility plugin at http://www.wpsymposium.com

Q. Which plugins may require a subscription fee? A. Currently the Groups, Facebook Connect, Events, Gallery, Mobile/SEO, Profile Plus and RSS Activity Feed require a Bronze membership at http://www.wpsymposium.com - all can be tried out at http://www.wpsymposium.com

Q. If I take out a Bronze membership and I decide I don't want WP Symposium, can I get a refund? A. If the plugins don't work on your server, with TwentyEleven theme and all non-WPS plugins de-activated, then you will get a full refund, less any PayPal fees.

Q. What happens if I cancel my Bronze membership? A. After cancellation, you will no longer be able to download upgrades/patches or new plugins (that are provided to Bronze members) from http://www.wpsymposium.com. You can continue to use those plugins you have on your site, and upgrade the core WP Symposium plugins from http://www.wordpress.org. You may want to wait until the end of your year to benefit from membership for as long as possible. You will not be able to access your helpdesk account after cancelling.

Q. How much does Bronze membership cost? A. $39 a year - if you don't want to continue your membership please cancel your PayPal subscription. You may want to wait until the end of your year to benefit from membership for as long as possible. You can continue to use Bronze plugins installed on your site even after you cancel (you just can't upgrade or get new ones).

Q. What is Silver membership? A. For $59 a year, we will do a full install on your server (if it won't work for any reason you get a full refund, less any PayPal fees). Any support tickets raised by Silver members will take priority over Bronze members.

Q. What is Gold membership? A. Lifetime membership! For $99, you get what the Bronze and Silver members get and nothing else to pay!

Q. Where can I find copyright and licence information? A. The plugin is copyright WP Symposium Ltd, published under the GPL3 licence. For the end user licence agreement, please see licence.txt within the plugin download.
