  • BBpress is ok, this gives me what i need for a new site but BuddyPress? am I missing something? This needs an overhaul and complete remake.

  • Why?

    Dated. it just doesnt format well. it looks old. it breaks easily. its unwieldy. you cant quite get it to do and behave like you want.

    @paul totally agree, its like the stone age!

    @markfethney, @paul

    “Dated” and “stone age” aren’t really very constructive. Similarly for “can’t get it to behave like you want”.

    I haven’t been using WordPress for a very long time, but I’ve always found plugin support to be kind of a sore spot. While there’s always room for improvement, I think BuddyPress has done a great job keeping up-to-date with WP core. And the generic theme support they added addressed one of its biggest problems, that of requiring a custom theme. What little I’ve seen of how BP fits into a random theme, I think it looks pretty good.

    It would be nice if you could either provide more constructive and specific criticism, or else suggest a different plugin that does something similar that you prefer?

    @sootsnoot well Id go deeper but its uninstalled now and Ive found a plug-in that suits me (UM) and i purchased all the plugins. For me this solutions rocks cages, it is everything (ok paid) that I wanted and more.

    I hope you had a look at sites or where you can get an idea how flexible BuddyPress is. Even if you want to go cheap on a theme and buy it on Themeforest there are a lot that support it out of the box. There are whole solutions offered at and if there is anything with the plugin you want to have more modern then just give them a helping hand or hire a dev to do it as you already git the plugin free.

    Kind regards
