I just learned that Gravity Forms is not free, but a Premium plugin.
This brings me back to my original question, is there a way that I can install BP, (BuddyPress) on a minimal scale taking advantage of the Membership functionality while having an individual page for each member so that each Member can upload their own content such as their images and text?
I still need to find a way to create the Tabbed set up for the individual Member pages (which is what the client really is after) later.
The immediate I need to ascertain is can I install BP on a minimal scale taking advantage of the Membership functionality only, while keeping my twentyeleven child theme in tact.
Many thanks for your input, suggestions and / or links to tutorials BP Community.
