Need help with Messaging
I am going to try one final time here before I give up and conclude that BuddyPress is not capable of addressing our needs. We host an annual conference, which is represented by an add-on domain at our main URL of http://www.betterpresenting.com. We want to use BuddyPress to create a community website for our conference patrons, and we have installed it, assigned to it the domain of http://www.summitcommunity.org, and have begun learning how to use it.
But our main site has an active blog and I don’t know how to separate posts that are intended to be read by the entire world and shown across the entire site from messages that are intended to go just to the Summit community.
– I posted a query about this here last month and it got no response.
– I bought an hour of a consultant’s time, who told me about a “mass messaging” plugin that would create a “BP feed,” but he flaked out when it came time for followthrough.
– I got a quote from a “BuddyPress expert” who resides in a different country, who told me that it would require extensive development work, on the level of 20 to 30 hours.
How can this be so hard? It is injuring my sensibilities. Before I abandon BuddyPress altogether, and with it our vision of using it for a community website, I figured I would return here once more and hope that this community will be a bit more responsive, now that I have a more fleshed-out story to tell.
Is what I am trying to do really that difficult? Is it unreasonable to want to use BuddyPress with an add-on domain? Is this honestly that far-fetched of a notion?
I would be grateful for hearing from anyone who could provide perspective, and better still, assistance with our plight. Many thanks.
