Thanks Asynaptic. It seems like the best best on a plugin either that or WP Symposium! Blessings.
Thanks a bunch @mercime….Blessings. Can’t wait on the new, but will upgrade when it comesout. However, for now I’ll just try looking at another template like Salutation or Something else. Just hope making changes to everything thats formatted in the Continuum theme, won’t give me too much of a problem when I change themes…lol…Praying on that one…
The Template packed link you posted is just whay it seems that I need, but there is ALOT of Code on that article. Do I have to Add ALL of that code in the places specified? WOW, hope not. I thought it would just be a few places to change some of the code to make it compatible with BP. I’m still stuck, can’t launch a membership/artist community without membership features. Thanks @mercime and Hugo. I’ll keep trying. Using another template right now…is NOT an option becaus eall of the content would have problems that I would have to go in and fix, and make look right. I wish it was as easy as leaving every page, category, tag with content AS-IS…and then pick a new template that works with buddypress, and activate it….and EVERYTHING would display as it should…without a hitch in the new Compatible template. Is that possible, or I should just use the above mentioned option in the link you gave me? Thanks, Blessings.
Thanks Hugo. I do have some Basic HTML coding skills…I know how to copy/paste code, change code in a HTML editor, add images, links, and that sort of basics knowledge. I have a Graphic design Background, so I am very familiar with layout and content, and features. My Problem is “MY Template” I’ve designed my whole site in WP which is not a problem for me…but after adding the BuddyPress Sections to the TOP Menu in my template, I have drawn a blank….lol….there is NOTHING on Each Page when viewed in Preview Mode Browser. I do know, that I have to ADD widgets and other content to A Created page in WP/BuddyPress in order to get the content to DIsplay in my browser. However,….lol….I’m lost at the Which Widget, and Things to add to the BP pages (Activate, Register, Activity, Members) pages. I have added them in Apperarance>>Menus>>Top Menu>>Select (Those) Pages>>Then Add To Menu….I’ve done all of this. I just don’t know what to add from here, to get these pages and their content to show-up so that everything works in my Current theme. Do I have to pick another theme, or just NOT use buddypress, and find another WP Membership plug-in that allows PROFILES and Writing in a Blog that every member can read? Another theme is NOT an option at this time. All of the other features I described in my Original Post, can be added with a few plug-ins right? So All I REALLY Need BuddyPress for is The MEMBERSHIP, Profiles, and Members Search Features intergrated to work with The Continuum Theme. There shouls be a better way around this, and I still get the same results. ALL Of My Website Content IS CREATED!!!! I’m just adding Members access, sign-up, and create a profile. Thanks.
Almost forgot…I was looking at Marketpress to use on the site. Will this allow a new member or existing member to open up their “Own Store” complete with a link address to their page within MY Network Website, and keep profile options and registration abilities. Really don’t want people to have to join WP to register and join my web community. Thanks again.
HI, I am a recent transfer website owner from ning.com. I have a community there, and i’m moving this weekend to the WP platform. I have many questions, that I can’t really seem to find the specific answers to. The plug-in that this user spoke of (The features and more) can buddypress really manage a social community like the ning platform, and what about other features? Here’s what the user wrote:
@boonebgorges thanks for your response and plugin link, in terms of functionality it is almost exactly what I need, only:
– Need it to manage users instead of groups
– Need it to show their full profile fields (including xprofile)
– Need options to deactivate(very important) or delete users
– Need function to export list to excel sheet
I need similar functions in a plug-in and need to know whats the BEST plugin or what combination of plug-ins will give me the features for a membership community that I want, members want, and that are essentially need to maintain a viable members community. Here is what I need as far as features and functionality:
-Secured membership registration and login seprate from WP admin. So members CAN’T access the backend of my admin panel.
-After they join they are sent to their members profile page to add a bio, photos, videos, music, etc..and everything post in their profile page, and in the community videos, photos, and music display like on a youtube page or gallery style. I also, need profiles that look more custom instead of simple layouts or designs. This is a BIG problem we had with our ning platform. Wish we could offer up to 6 or more profile page templates for members to choose from, complete with comments and a better layout for uploaded videos, photos, music (In a player on profile.)
-Members display in a four/five accross…four/five down style grid instead of up and down like a list.
-Search for members, based on attributes or career choice or find all member in a certain category.
-Want a upload feature on whatever page or place I designate for members to upload content like videos, music, photos.
-Add paywalls on whatever page I need to, for the purpose of selling premium content to members.
-Add featured profile/members and delete/block members at will.
-Don’t want to use multisite plug in if I don’t half to. Rater not use it.
Any help here, or a push in the right direction with plug-ins for buddypress please let me know. Thanks in advance good people. Blessings.
