  • Resolved K2E2


    Hello 🙂

    I am looking to create a PRIVATE social networking site and I have been playing with Buddypress, UM and several other plugins on my test site to try and figure out the best way to implement. Here is what I am hoping you can explain:

    Would using the UM core with Buddypress and BBpress create the PRIVATE social networking I seek and allow for an attractive implementation on my site? Your forms are very purdy:) I did get a bit confused as to how to deal with the pages Buddypress created and the pages UM created, is there any documentation you can point me to to address implementing both in the best way? I wasn’t sure if I picked one over the other if functionality would be effected in some way.


    Will the core UM and the premium bundle package provide me with all the features and functionality of Buddypress and BBpress at this point in time, with ease of implementation and attractive presentation? If so, can you point me to documentation to implement this way?

    What functionality would I lose using the core UM with Buddypress and BBpress that I would gain by using your paid premium bundle package?

    I suppose some of my confusion was my missing the info on the bundled plugin package, but once I found it, It seemed to make me think you are hoping to create a Buddypress replacement solution – but I can not tell if it is ready for prime time as of yet or still in the works.

    Bottom line, I have tried five membership plugins and I like your core the best, but I need to understand how to get what I need for my site as aggravation free as possible. I don’t mind paying for a few plugins but I must assure they will work and provide the functionality I need with an easy implementation.

    I know most plugins offer a refund, but that is just a real drag to go through for everyone involved.

    We do not recommend using BuddyPress and UM at the same time. There is too much overlap.

    UM + the bundle does not offer the exact same features offered by BuddyPress.

    bbPress is a forum plugin which works with both UM and BuddyPress.

    Thanks 🙂
