    @ubernaut

    Thanks for the post/link….I am researching it more…seems nice but how do I go to ghostpool.com site to reaseach more for functionality/showcase/pricing etc?
    If I am correct, the pricing for multiple domain use at themeforest is $3000 (extended license). Can you buy directly from ghostpool.com?

    Q: Does anyone know which is the “best” WP/BP based clone site with functionality from: Both the the pinterest and instagram?

    I found a site/script called pinstagram but it doesn’t seem to be an actual theme.

    Thanks.

    Yes, I am still looking….haven’t found the one really screams “crowd sourcing”.
    I came across some themeforest themes but their pricing/license is very difficult to understand.

    I just want a theme that enables visitors/users contributing news/opinion/media/content etc.

    I am really excited about the new version of BP coming soon.

    Perhaps, I should just go with a simple theme recommended here….never thought selecting theme will be that difficult:)

    Thank you very much for your response.

    I have found few as follows:

    http://www.premiumwp.com/10-pinterest-like-wordpress-themes/

    This one is also multi-site enabled: http://themify.me/themes/pinboard

    Also like this one: http://ipinpro.ericulous.com/

    Pinstgram: http://demo.mythemeshop.com/s/?theme=Pinstagram

    http://mythemeshop.com/themes/pinstagram/

    Note: I am researching more because I want these to be used for news posting and sharing by users. So really need to make sure that users are able to easily do it.

    Note: Forgot to mention that the news or blog site will be either

    Topic based

    ( Healthcare, Discrimination, Environment, etc) OR

    Location based

    (Cleveland, London, India, etc).

    Thanks for your comment.
    I never said I want BP to be a facebook clone.
    I love BP.

    I strongly feel that BP lacks depth in this functionality.
    It is not useful at all. Facebook does it right.
    A social network software should be able to do it right.

    That’s the only reason I mentioned facebook.

    I hope you give this issue another consideration and help make BP more useful.

    Thank you all for your help.

    It appears GPU (Grid Processing Unit) is something that only mediatemple uses and even after reading everything about it, I am not sure how much traffic can it withstand. I also discovered they charge $20 per backup snapshot which I believe is a lot.

    I will keep looking for another day or two and I will fill out the quote at webhosting talk and will go from there.

    Ok, I have created extended profiles for users under the wp admin: Users > Profile fields

    There is one thing that I can not do with the options provied in buddypress.

    I want to create a section under the profiles similar to the “Family” section in facebook:

    1. Relationship Status: should open up the options where people can select one from drop down and then other fields pop up where people can enter the name of the person they are in relationship with.

    2. Family section: where people can add a name of a family member,  select the relationship and then keep adding more family members by repeating this process.

    How can I do this?

    Is there a plugin that does this?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Hopefully the devs can comment on this thread because almost 70 % of the new members never activate their account from the email they get…so definitely vast majority of these 70% are spammers.

    Q: How can I display a message like this “You will get a link in email to activate your account after registration” on the account creation page? 

    Thank you.

    I understand your plugin is going to be the biggest and most extensive media plugin ever built for BP. Just wondering if you have a release date for the BP-Media plugin?

    Currently I have observed another developer releasing quick updates of their plugin called BuffyPress-Media as follows:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-media/

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-media/stats/

    As you can see that this plugin appears to gain quick popularity and now have 100s of daily downloads.

    I am wondering about the following:

    1. What are the major advantages of your plugin versus the above plugin?

    2. What is the “solid production release date” for your plugin?

    Your response is appreciated so we can decide which plugin to use.

    Thank you.

    Ok, I didn’t know that. Thanks!

    How/where do I get the API key? From here? : http://akismet.com/wordpress/

    What should I add to the wp-config.php file?

    @rickkumar

    My WP-admin admin section shows that aksimet plugin is already installed because it asked me to update it with the new version yesterday which I did.

    Funny thing is I never installed it.

    Q: Does it mean that aksimet is a part of the buddypress install already?

    Question about editing the site info under: wp-admin/network/site-info

    I see the following fields:

    ———————————————————————–

    Domain: http://Username.Mainsite.com

    Path: [/                                           ]

    [checkbox-already checked] Update siteurl and home as well.

    ——————————————————————————-

    Q: Do I need to write or enter anything in the “Path” field after the / as shown above when creating/editing a site?

    Thanks.

    Thank you!

    When I selected the option “User accounts may be registered”, the ‘select your new site checkbox’ immediately disappeared from the new member account creation page. No css changed were required.
    Our site is still BP/Multisite and we can allow the blogs any time later if we want. I want to keep the ability to turn the blogs on so I plan to keep the entire BP/Multisite setup.
    Q: Can I manually add blog sites for the members who request a blog site on a later time (let’s say two month after creating their account)? Basically wondering if I can do it on a case by case basis from the WP-Admin for the existing members whenever they want a blog site?
    Thank you for your help.

    insertyourdomainhere.com/members shows members list but some from today are not in the list…perhaps they still need to activate their accounts from the registration email link. But I do see them in the WP-admin.

    insertyourdomainhere.com/sites doesn’t show the site list as of yet with today’s new sites, even though I can see the sites for today’s registered members in the WP-admin area. May be insertyourdomainhere.com/sites will show the list for all the members who registered today after they activate their registration?

     

    Thank you.
