Is it possible to do it in WP + BP?
I’m creating a new website addressed to a niche community. This is my biggest project, so I’m a little confused. I have no idea which CMS will be the best option for me.
I’m considering three options – Drupal, WordPress with BuddyPress and a dedicated solution (if all else fails). It must be simple, fast, flexible and user-friendly solution, so all other suggestions are welcome.
Generally, BP offers everything which I want, but I also need a few functionality:
1. Games library/catalog:
Classic game library – including informations about game, screenshots, rating stars, comments and “playing now/played” button (user can choose – all selected games are showed in his profile).
To all of games linked selected news and articles – staff must be able to choose it when creating a new content or adding a new game.
1. Games ranking:
A part of games library.
Displays a list of games added to the library, sorted by popularity or rating, with latest stat changes (decrease, increase, no changes).
2. Event calendar:
All upcoming releases and events categorized by tags. The same as in games library – all of them with linked selected news and articles – staff must be able to choose it when creating a new content or an event in the calendar.
Members are able to get badges for some actions, i.e. rate 5 games. All badges are listed on user’s profile and “Badges” subpage (with description and list of nominated members).
Nothing special – just a chat for members only (not the IRC!).
5. I’m also interested in modifying BP user’s activity stream by turning off updates, activity comments and public messages. Is it possible?
Furthermore, in a few months, if my project gain some popularity, I want to expand it creating a network – thematic blogs on subdomains/other domains, social layer with central staff panel on general one.
I would be grateful for any suggestions.
