    First, allow me to apologize to all for the apparent increase in my cranial density. It used to be much easy for new concepts to permeate the bone and seep into my gray matter.

    I am trying to understand the Buddypress concept. After reviewing the example sites on bpinsire.com, I am having a difficulty in ascertaining where WordPress ends and where Buddypress begins, so to speak.

    If anyone is aware of a good thorough explanation of what Buddypress brings to the table, I would very much appreciate some guidance.

    I think I will blame my denseness on being an old-fart, left-brained engineer, yeah, that sounds good.

    Hi,
    At the heart of BuddyPress it’s simply a plugin that has a range of components making community features capable on a WordPress site. However, it’s much more than that. Think of it as a toolkit, you can bring in whatever works for the site you are going to create. However, like a toolkit you would rarely use everything on every project. You may use activity streams, maybe profiles on a site – not every site is the same.

    The start of every BuddyPress site really comes the thinking about what your community will need. Then you pick the components that fit the community.

    Hopefully that helps?

    That helped a bit, thank you. Do you have any idea where I can find a thorough explanation of what is in the toolbox and the advantages offered?
