    Hi,

    Firstly a big sorry if this is in the wrong place, i am new to buddypress and still finding my way around. I have a few questions which I hope the community can help me with.

    Firstly, I would like to know if I already have a wordpress site up and running and with a template that is not buddypress. If I install buddypress on that site, would it fit in with the current template or would I have to change my look?

    I am still finding my way around plugins/ addons but would normal wordpress plugins still work with buddypress?

    My site would be a Christian portal with community features. Where is best to get buddypress plugins from?

    I have used phpfox in the past but feel it is lacking what I am want to achieve. I would require the following plugins and if anyone could direct me or suggest some i would be greatful:

    News – This would import news from other sites via rss feed.
    Ecards- Is there an ecard plugin? These would be inspirational ecards
    Directory mod – listings for charities
    Questions & answers such as yahoo questions.
    Amazon store plugin – allows affiliate products/ astore to be integrated.

    Thank you in advanced for your help.

    Welcome to the BP forums ;)

    Firstly, I would like to know if I already have a wordpress site up and running and with a template that is not buddypress. If I install buddypress on that site, would it fit in with the current template or would I have to change my look?

    Answer: You will need to integrate the new BP templates with your current theme. The plugin BP Template Pack guides you through this process and is available fro FWEE! in the plugins directory ;).

    I am still finding my way around plugins/ addons but would normal wordpress plugins still work with buddypress?

    Answer: This depends on the plugin and it’s functionality – to my knowledge, trial and error is the bestway :P

    Answer: http://buddypress.org/extend/plugins/

    News – This would import news from other sites via rss feed. : Use WordPress :)
    Ecards: Find a plugin or someone to make it for you.
    Directory Mod: Maybe you can modify the Portfolio plugin to do this :O?
    Q&A: Sorry, no idea
    Amazon Store: Run a search with our best friend, im sure he’ll hit you up with a good plugin ;)

    You’re welcome for as far as it helped :)
    Cheers,
    Aron

    looks like they have something for Q&A at wpmudev.org but most of those aren’t free.
