BuddyPress is a Rockstar!

BuddyPress is great for so many use cases. Many people just think of it as a FaceBook Clone. But that's so limited. If you understand the possibilities it blows your mind. It's interesting for every site interacting with users in any way.

It can be used for any kind of user generated content.

From a vendors marketplace to a community about kittens. Any kind of directory or user driven content related site.

Also BuddyPress is all about Groups. Use it as a learning system, Virtual ClassRoom or to build your next awesome Intranet.

It gives you all the tools to create an intranet with tools like DropBox, Messaging, Activity Streams and so much more. The limits are your ideas.

There is still a learning curve, but once you understand the components. You can do really serious stuff with BuddyPress.

In my opinion it's not about using all BuddyPress components to build the next Facebook. It's about using the components which make sense for you.

Huge Thanks to the the BuddyPress Crew. You are truly awesome.

Can I limit access to a Buddypress forum this way?
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have a paid-for membership site and I want to add a forum to it. I want to limit access to the forum to the paid members of my membership site. That means that if you aren't a paid member at my membership site then you can not access the forum. It's okay if non-paying members can see the front page of the forum and the front page of any category page within the forum, but I don't want them to be able to read any of the threads on the forum.

Do you have any suggestions for how I can accomplish this? I'm using the DAP (Digital Access Pass) membership WP plugin on my membership site.

4 Stars for Basic Styling
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have been using this plugin for a community for quite a while now, but buddypress styling is old now and there are competitors out with awesome styling compared to buddypress. The only thing keeping buddypress alive is the free features.

All they need now is the styling being updated to like Ultimate Member and Peepso. This would be a 5 star plugin. I don't think the styles should be our job to add. Should already come with it. Ultimate Member and Peepso don't charge for the styling, they charge for the extensions.

So really I don't see the reason to be holding it back from buddypress either. Since I am not the hard coding kind of person.

Very useful
