@JJJ: I see your point. Thinking of it now, it makes sense. BP isn’t meant to be a finished product design wise like Jomsocial, it’s supposed to be themed like K2.
@ David: In my opinion users above 35 who are used to forums and are already unsure what such social networks are for need the simplest navigation possible. As you said, I think that drop-down with fly-outs (when they work properly, as for example on linux.com) give you a sense of how the site is organised, and that’s precisely why I find it would be particularly useful in this case. Especially if the BP community is part of a lager site with front page news, directories, etc, and that there is a higher navigation level.
If I use BP for my site, I will definitely seek to simplify it’s navigation to the bare minimum, and try to figure out how to intelligently combine the utility of BP and a forum, which in my view is the other big issue.
Uho… DJPaul, are you saying there’s a possibility of a conflict between a customised theme and the update, or is it certain?
Ok, thank you,
I’ve got to find the right designer then…
Will I risk having to have the whole thing redone at every update?
What do you use for the events section?
The showcase site Wannanetwork’s community is down, there’s a news posting saying that they “have pushed the limits of WordPress” and that they are experiencing server problems.
I’d like to have Maxaud’s feedback on BP after running what seems to be a pretty high traffic site for months.
As for the “Showcase”, it deserves a cleanup, many sites are down
Yeah Jomsocial is still far superior in terms of navigation and media.
If making a directory with Joomla wasn’t so complicated (like everything else it seems) I’d definitely buy a Jomsocial license.
I’m still hesitating because Jomsocial has great integration with some forums, an area in which BP seems pretty limited
hmmm, so no video…
And I suppose no group photo albums either
I have to decide between BuddyPress and Jomsocial… tough decision
