Reliable

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.

Love Buddypress

I really want to like this, and I really do..mostly
By , for WP 4.4

Works well for my small, personal social site, but I wouldn't want to have to deal with it for anything larger or with a less forgiving user base.

When it works it's lovely, but when it doesn't, its a nightmare for a php novice like myself. Which is more a reflection on me than the plug in, but I mention it because I don't believe BP to be as much of a "straight out of the box" seamless solution as some seem to think it is.

I've muddled through most of my issues, but the last upgrade broke my site completely. I have no idea why, I went through all the usual trouble shooting actions and the only thing that worked was reinstalling a back up of my site and not updating the plug in ever again lol.

That was during the last WordPress iteration, I know I will have to bite the bullet so to speak sooner or later but after that last fiasco, I'm kind of scared to try to update BP now that WP has been updated again. Still, it's the best game in town for what it is imo (I've tried a few other social media solutions with horrific results) and I look forward to seeing more improvements and better integration as time goes on :)

Works nicely

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

It's great

This is a great plugin, but you'll definitely need a bit of customization to get the most out of it.
