This plugin feels cheap to me. It's a buggy attempt at mimicking Buddy Press.

...and buddypress does all that this plugin has.

Can't find other users
By , for WP 3.7.1

I created a few test profiles to check if im able to chat with the other profiles. turns out i't completely impossible for me to find the other profiles! The main search bar only shows some of the posts i put on the site.
Any suggestions? thanks

Easy to customise
By , for WP 3.6

After spending hours trying to customise a profile page in Buddypress - I wanted to include a list of favourites from WP Favorite Posts for each user - I gave up and tried using WP Mingle as my 'social' plugin.

Within 20 minutes I had added a new 'favourites' tab in the profile page and added a favourite youtube video playlist. See http://ypraise.com/ypraise/ for example.

I haven't had chance to really play with this plugin yet but it looks really good.

It may not receive much support but it seems to work perfectly with a child theme of 2012 and it hasn't yet had a conflict with any other plugin.

Well done to the developers.


No longer funny

Why on earth have plugins stay around and rot in the Repository?
This plugin had such great potential. Then it seems to have died. Now it is rotten.

I don't want to be invisible
By , for WP 3.5.1

Same!!!Same!!!Same!!!Mingle looks great so far. The 5 minute Mingle setup (search for it online) is good. Only problem is that I am the admin and it put me in the list of invisible users...can't friend people, etc...and the settings page will not allow me to remove myself from the users who will be invisible! How do I get myself out of that list? I can select myself in the invisible user list, but not delete my user name from there. HELP!!!

This seems to a general problem with every body, I can't find the solution :-( Baaaaaaaaahhhaaaaaa I am exhausted

Wonderful functionality, but broken, ancient
By , for WP 3.5.1

Forum isn't good. Avoid Mingle forum.
Social plugin is wonderful, but depends on obsolete php 5.0.x
Either downgrade to unsupported php 5.0.x or see my hack in the support forum.
Absolutely NOT plug-n-play.

ok, but very simple

Lots of things missing. Simple forum but it has several problem issues and there are a lot of features missing that you would want in a forum.

Love IT!
