Can't post on their forum
By ,

So I really wanted to try out this plugin but I can't seem to ask one question on their forum. No, i didn't add any links or code and all it was, was this question:

I am creating a forum and currently using "Profile Builder" but there are not that many options for it. I use it because members don't need to assess the backend of the site where all the Administrators are allowed, and where I do not want regular users at all. Am I able to use BuddyPress and have it accessible to front end users? I hope that all made sense?

That is all I did and can't so I take it that buddypress isn't accessible to front end users which makes this useless to me.

I love this plugin

Great to have a social media aplication already set up

Works nicely
By , for WP 4.2.2

The only missing thing in my opinion is the possibility to have an admin approving registration and blocking user until approval.

Thank you!

Thanks guys!!

Worst Support EVER!
By , for WP 4.2.2

The plugin works perfectly until you update WP, and their support staff flat out refuse to help even when you give them all the info they ask for.

Use at your own risk.

The best plugin anyone must have if you host a word-press on hosting. I have tried many settings on this plugin and it works great! Never had any issues with it so far. Love you for this. [link removed]
