I used to have it in my website long time ago. And never to install it again because of some difficult to modify for the custom theme.

Always been my favourite! :)

I've always loved this plugin, it's pretty awesome if you want to run a social community on your WordPress install. :)

Disappointed on their forum / support
By , for WP 4.5

I'm not a tech-savvy person and i just started learning WP early this year. I chose WP because i thought being the most-used platform globally, wp should be able to offer more support I need to create my first site.

My experiences so far has been the exact opposite. My first two inquiries to wP forum received 0 replies. After reading my most recent issue, WP moderator advised that issue should be sent to Buddypress, which is the same company as WP as I just realized then.

So I posted that issue on BP forum and still received 0 replies as of this very moment.

This non-responsive attitude also applies to most plugin operators I've contacted so far.

Without a solution to my BP issue, I can't move on and I couldn't be more disappointed on my overall experiences with wp / bp.

It's so cool that you should use it!

Recommending without hesitation. It becomes more and more awesome with each release. Great team is making this plugin outstanding.

I like it, but it has never quite been light-footed and easy to use.

The default features after install are too many, it looks like an overkill for a user so the first thing you do is tone it down.

Maybe a matter of style, but I would prefer the defaults to be something an average site would use. Then again, what is an average site, lol.

Works well
