I’m looking for an open source social networking platform that I can integrate with wordpress. I’m building a site that will need wordpress for it’s blogging abilities but I would like to be able to add a social networking aspect so that people can befriend one another, use forums, write on walls, share photos, etc.
I’ve looked into Lovd By Less and Elgg as solutions and I would have no problem installing and running them. However I’m looking for a simple solution to integrating them so that a user would go to one place to sign-in, rather have one session/username/password for both systems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Professor (oor anyone else) did you ever find a solution to this issue? I’m looking for something similar. I’d like to integrate a WordPress blog with Lovd. In addition to a universal login, I’m looking for advice on how to have the same header from the WordPress blog show up on the social networking side of the site.
