    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a good BuddyPress website? I would like to register and contribute to it to learn more about the user flow and get familiar with most things before I implement it on my websites.

    Thank yoU!

    @ubernaut – your website gotgame dot come looks very nice on the front end. I registered and was able to login. But here is the key question and the reason why I wanted to test it on some website that looks nice on the front end like yours.

    Question is – don’t you think that the average user gets confused when they register and login. I mean, after registration, I see homepage I already saw and there is new bar on the top. I am like “Huh! What now…” – nothing is intuitive and user has not idea how to add content to this website and contribute.

    I assume this is default way BuddyPress handles experiece after the login and I must say – GUI does not help you to grow your members, contributors and content.

    Is there a better way? Is there a better template we can redirect logged in users so they can have AN IDEA of what to do after they login?

    Help from anyone greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    There is this but i have yet to employ it i believe needs updating for 1.7 compatibility:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/welcome-pack/

    with regards to our site in particular new members can only contribute once they are granted that status currently. I’m working on turning it into a network at which point anyone will be able to create their own site and contribute that way. if you’d like to write an article or something i can certainly give you contributor status @attention just let me know your username.

    thanks!

    the welcome pack would be a good start but I didn’t know it wasn’t updated to 1.7 yet

    are you sure it doesn’t work with 1.7?

    Welcome pack is fantastic idea; plugin that handles all the back-end work. OK – I will try it and let you know how it works. Downloading now…:)

    The plugin works – it does show the redirect page for the first time logged in users. After that, it dissapears. This is perfect for giving people instructions on how to use BuddyPress the 1st time they log in. Good enough for me.
