Magazine Site to Buddypress: Need Advice
We currently run a magazine-style web site using Joomla which contains many thousands of unique articles, and we are considering porting the content over to BuddyPress.
I have a question for you BuddyPress Experts!
Question: I understand that BP allows each user to have their own blog, and access social networking features between profiles. However, we want the site to have a custom home page with only our own articles, as well as main sub-sections that only show our articles. The social networking features of BP would more be shown in a separate community area of the larger site as a whole. Is this easily done? Can we have a premium theme home page (such as from the Revolution themes), where we control what story appears where (and can assign a thumbnail to each). I just wouldn’t want to use BP if it is difficult for us to keep our own original content front and center.
If you have any suggestions on how to run a magazine-style web site with BP, please speak up! Example URLs of existing sites would be great too.
