sorry maybe this is a dumb question but can you even turn off the regular wordpress rss feed? i’d think both feeds basically work the same way maybe @r-a-y can shed some light?
yeah well i guess that makes some kind of sense but I’m not sure i agree with the basic logic of it anyway thanks for sharing that.
just curious how exactly you feel that rss feeds make buddypress “insecure”
let me know what you think is best i always tend to try to do thing without adding plugins if possible but i can imagine post management might be an issue with the user level method.
i think its more due to the fact that nobody is talking about ning anymore their system isn’t very open technically speaking. for instance when i do a google search for ‘social network in a box’ or ‘social network software’ there are many references to buddypress in the results but none for ning. i know when i was looking at ning in 2010 coincidentally enough i decided their lack of customer service and locked in system weren’t a good way to go for our network. in fact ning isn’t even listed in the wikipedia list of social networking software options:
although maybe because it’s a platform and not really software you can install.
one more thing i would add is that a lot of the really popular dedicated buddypress plugins are now wordpress plugins as well so they may not really show up as buddypress only plugins anymore.
sorry i read the title of you post too quickly htaccess shouldn’t need anything special for buddypress the standard wordpress compatible htaccess is fine. group based forums are depreciated so i wouldn’t expect that work anymore anyway.
generally speaking the htaccess file is located in the root public html directory.
you can only have one theme active at a time. also i think personally, buddypress would make a bad alternative for google drive since its really not the same thing at all.
as for putting a menu item to take users to the main forum page that will not be a problem.
it sounds like you may want try using wordpress first and then add buddypress once you are a little more familiar with it before adding buddypress to the mix.
looks like you already got a lot of downloads. Good work!
ah gotcha thanks for sharing and enlightening me as well.
just curious what you are actually trying to schedule, group creation? i think everything else can be scheduled already with normal wordpress functionality.
I’m just trying to help man i tried to share what information i had paying someone to answer the questions you cannot was just a suggestion based on what i would do.
idk like i said your questions are pretty situation specific so to expect anyone to get more involved you may want to consider paying for help.
it sounds like you have a lot of very specific implementation questions it might make sense to hire someone to help you out. hard for any volunteer to get that involved.
my number is on this site:
probably less than 50 bucks
generally take care of updates for my client most of the time they are painless and free.
#1 can be accomplished i think simply by using contact forms.
#2 there are variety of rating plugins out there.
neither of these is very significant in terms so time to set up but you may want to find a theme which incorporates this functionality in it’s design so finding such a theme might take a little more time then the fastest way outlined above. Let me know if you still need help with that and we can connect outside of this forum.
