BuddyPress

Description

Are you looking for modern, robust, and sophisticated social network software? BuddyPress is a suite of components that are common to a typical social network, and allows for great add-on features through WordPress’s extensive plugin system.

BuddyPress is focused on ease of integration, ease of use, and extensibility. It is deliberately powerful yet unbelievably simple social network software, built by contributors to WordPress.

Enable registered members to create profiles, have private conversations, make connections, create & interact in groups, and much more. Truly a social network in a box, BuddyPress helps you more easily build a home for your company, school, sports team, or other niche community.

Extensions

BuddyPress has an ever-increasing array of extended features developed by an active and thriving plugin development community, with hundreds of free-and-open BuddyPress-compatible plugins available at WordPress.org. Any plugin can be conveniently installed using the plugin installer in your WordPress Dashboard.

  • Activity Streams - Global, personal, and group activity streams with threaded commenting, direct posting, favoriting and @mentions. All with full RSS feeds and email notification support.
  • Extended Profiles - Fully editable profile fields allow you to define the fields users can fill in to describe themselves. Tailor profile fields to suit your audience.
  • User Settings - Give your users complete control over profile and notification settings. Settings are fully integrated into your theme, and can be disabled by the administrator.
  • Extensible Groups - Powerful public, private or hidden groups allow your users to break the discussion down into specific topics. Extend groups with your own custom features using the group extension API.
  • Friend Connections - Let your users make connections so they can track the activity of others, or filter to show only those users they care about the most.
  • Private Messaging - Private messaging will allow your users to talk to each other directly and in private. Not just limited to one-on-one discussions, your users can send messages to multiple recipients.
  • Site Tracking - Track posts and comments in the activity stream, and allow your users to add their own blogs using WordPress' Multisite feature.
  • Notifications - Keep your members up-to-date with relevant activity via toolbar and email notifications.

Installation

From your WordPress dashboard

  1. Visit ‘Plugins > Add New’
  2. Search for ‘BuddyPress’
  3. Activate BuddyPress from your Plugins page. (You will be greeted with a Welcome page.)

From WordPress.org

  1. Download BuddyPress.
  2. Upload the ‘buddypress’ directory to your ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory, using your favorite method (ftp, sftp, scp, etc…)
  3. Activate BuddyPress from your Plugins page. (You will be greeted with a Welcome page.)

Once Activated

  1. If you do not have pretty permalinks enabled, you will see a notice to enable them. (BuddyPress will not currently work without them.)
  2. Visit ‘Settings > BuddyPress > Components’ and adjust the active components to match your community. (You can always toggle these later.)
  3. Visit ‘Settings > BuddyPress > Pages’ and setup your directories and special pages. We create a few automatically, but suggest you customize these to fit the flow and verbiage of your site.
  4. Visit ‘Settings > BuddyPress > Settings’ and take a moment to match BuddyPress’s settings to your expectations. We pick the most common configuration by default, but every community is different.

Once Configured

  • BuddyPress comes with a robust theme-compatibility API that does its best to make every BuddyPress page look and feel right with just-about any WordPress theme. You may need to adjust some styling on your own to make everything look pristine.
  • A few BuddyPress specific themes are readily available for download from WordPress.org, and hundreds more are available from third-party theme authors. BuddyPress themes are just WordPress themes with additional templates for each component, and with a little work you could easily create your own too!
  • BuddyPress also comes with built-in support for Akismet and bbPress, two very popular and very powerful WordPress plugins. If you’re using either, visit their settings pages and ensure everything is configured to your liking.

Multisite & Multiple Networks

BuddyPress can be activated and operate in just about any scope you need for it to.

  • Activate at the site level to only load BuddyPress on that site.
  • Activate at the network level for full integration with all sites in your network. (This is the most common multisite installation type.)
  • Enable multiblog mode to allow your BuddyPress content to be displayed on any site in your WordPress Multisite network, using the same central data.
  • Extend BuddyPress with a third-party multi-network plugin to allow each site or network to have an isolated and dedicated community, all from the same WordPress installation.

Read more about custom BuddyPress activations on our codex page.

Discussion Forums

Try bbPress. It integrates with BuddyPress Groups, Profiles, and Notifications. Each group on your site can choose to have its own forum, and each user’s topics, replies, favorites, and subscriptions appear in their profiles.

Reviews

It is not working correctly

BuddyPress is not synching with wordpress, leaving my members without “my page” profile editor, ad friends and so on. When my members login, and enter frontpage, they get thrown out? When you fix this, I will change my review!
-Also… the plugin, slow my page down extremely!
