Newbie looking for where to start
Hi and help,
I am lost in the world of too much info on the web and am looking for something that gives me a basic understanding of buddy press. I get lost in the installation, eg: Configure components -> associate a WordPress page or create a new page -> ??
What sort of page? What goes on it? What’s its function?
For 5 days now I’ve known about Buddypress for Dummies but just as I decide to get a hold of it, I read a 2012 item by the author saying, Don’t buy it, its outdated. I’ve just spent money to buy a WP theme that is Buddypress compatible and yesterday found out I’d wasted my money in the sense that now all themes compatible. On the up side, I get 12 months support for the theme; on the downside, they won’t support buddypress, just their theme. They direct Buddypress users here.
I’ve looked at the Codex and closely read the section on installation – the Codex seems to simply repeat what is on my setup screen and adds no extra information – it has not been useful to this wannabe user.
So simply, where can I find an introductory level guide to setting up Buddypress correctly?
