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.

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.

Doesnt allow you to save a page for the Register or Activate dropdown menus. After clicking save it goes back the 'none'. And the documentation online sucks. Doesnt tell you anything the wp dashboard doesnt.

Does not work with Enfold Theme
By , for WP 4.1.1

This upgrade does not allow you to save a new page as a registration page. No matter what plugins I disable, BP still does not work.

Please advise when bug has been fixed, thank you

BuddyPress is not working with WP 4.1
By , for WP 4.1

After upgrading to WP 4.1, impossible to create new topics, create groups, change profile photo ... I mean, BuddyPress is not working.
I uninstalled the plugin, reinstalled, and still not working.
The system does not allow me to open new topics to request support forum BuddyPress. Very disappointed.

Don't use
By , for WP 4.0

This is such a pain to work with, it is extremely buggy and there are very few decent themes / plugins that work with buddy press. Even when you find one that is good you will quickly find out that half the plugins won't work with it ... Years of nightmares over buddypress and it is now too late to switch.
