WordPress as a SNS? (3 posts)

    Hi
    I need to build a small social networking site (500-1000 users max)
    The functionality that I need is the ability for users to create a profile (which will be automatically posted as a "page", not as a post), and have that database be search-able by other users.

    Seems like WordPress should be capable of doing this?
    thoughts?
    recommendations?

    Not sure about a "page", but might want to review the concept of the Author Templates and some author plugins. Here's a few resources:

    http://blog.themeforest.net/wordpress/wordpress-author-details/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dmsguestbook/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-photo/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile-pic/ Use the shortcodes [printprofile] and / or [printprofilepic]
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-authors/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/extended-profile/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/author-exposed/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/author-avatars/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/list-authors-plus/ - offers template tag to sort by post count, exclude roles, exclude user id, exclude user name.
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/addauthor/ inside the loop, a gravatar of the author of the post, the description of the author of the post, the nick of the author of the post and the date of the post.
