    Greetings all. Nice to be in this inernet community. I was building a community website where people can: upload and share reports, illustrations and documents and be able to; comment on each others; and have their own space. It does not seem that Buddypress has an extensive upload capability..is this correct or is there a way I can make it work? Thank you I like the software, or should I try a differnt one for my needs.

    You’ll want to check out this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-group-documents/ I think it will do what you want.

    We have a website built using wordpress (cacv.ca) – I was hoping the social networking part could be a separate tab so all that we currently have up would remain as is. Is that possible?

    @ techguy whooopie I am so excited :) thank you for your prompt feedback! Now to figure out how to make it beautiful like all of the pages out there.

    @marybennett is your question directed to someone else? I am new and would not venture to guess. Hope you get an answer, sounds like an novel approach :)

    Does Buddypress require WPMU. I am having issues with the registration options plugin as it does not activate.

    BP does not require WPMU anymore. However, some plugins do requires WPMU. I’d check with the plugin author about your problem.

    @marybenett after looking at some videos the following link which discusses the idea of a separate section using buddyPress, where the majority of the website is standard. She does not address the idea of a tab specifically, but hopefully it could add insight to your query.

    The presenter, Lisa-Sabin WIlson discusses it at the end of her presentation, which was given at WordCamp NYC 2009
    here is the link:
