    This might be a good place to start if you looked at it already?

    BuddyPress Theme Development

    It doesn’t set up predefined filters which seems like what OP wanted but this works really well for me and includes widget

    I understand that responsiveness in terms of themes screen displays and the speed of page loads with AMP are different. However they are both about enhanced user experience on mobile devices right? I use the AMP plugin you link on another of my WP sites which is what prompted the question about the value for my BP site.

    Since so much of a user experience in BP is dynamically generated I am just wondering how useful AMP is in that context. Particularly since as you point out it isn’t built into WP core so it means adding another plugin. We are still in the early day yet and early adopters share different results.

    So just throwing the question out there to see if anyone has implemented on their BP and what they are seeing in terms of users on mobile devices.

    Are you running AMP on your BP site(s)

    Could you add a readme.txt file for potential testers describing how it works.w

    The look of your pages including the profile will be determined in large part by the theme you are using. Not sure if the image you referenced is the default buddypress theme with modifications or another WordPress theme. Pretty much any well designed WordPress theme should work but those made compatible with BP work best. You may want to try searching the WP theme directory with Buddypress as a keyword. There are also premium themes designed for BP which create their own look and feel for your site.
    Hope that helps

    Have you asked the ithemes support folks? I thought I came across something about a conflict there a while back but I may be wrong. I use wordfence for security and it works really wel, they responded to a problem their plugin was causing with BP right away offered a work around and then a fix.

    There should be a media or gallery tab which shows the media uploaded by user on their profile page at least that is how it works with rtmedia on my site.

    I see you are using wordfence security plugin. There was a recent but that was preventing uploads on my BP site. You may want to check this thread in WP plugin support forum to see if it related to your problem.

    You may want to consider alternatives that are compatible. There are BP compatible options for all the plugins you mention. For example I use wise chat plugin for chat.
    Media press is a BP compatible image upload plugin. Might help yourself to look around some more.

    If you go to appearance > menu and click screen options in the upper right corner then check the buddypress option from the list of checkboxes it will add buddypress specific menu for profile, login, logout and others.

    I looked at WP rocket and they don’t list any object caching in there feature list so that would really solve the issue with not using W3 total cache. My host only allows memcache on dedicated server not VPS. So still trying to find alternative.

    @earl_d

    @djpaul do you have recommendation for object caching. Pretty much had turned chachingnof becausing from what I was reading didn’t work well for BP. Running on VPS which can be configured to run Php xcache.

    I believe this shows how to set up sitewide and groups forums together

    Installing Group and Sitewide Forums

    It’s not free and I have used but might be what you need.

    Ning To BuddyPress

    In addition to the two already mentioned Buddypress activity plus is another option it has 10000 active installs. Was the first one I tried though I settled on the afore mentioned Rtmedia

    Shared hosting would not IMO you would need a VPS or managed host depending on your configuration ex your theme and number of plugin.

    The way to to it is to make the first forum for your group a category forum. Ex MY GROUP FORUM then make subsequent forums standard and set the first one as the parent. That should accomplish what you want to do.

    @danbp Yeah That was the first thing I did but I found it a bit confusing trying to figure out whether and which additional option to apply.

    Will give it another look to see if I made any mistakes in implementing the fix.

    I have used buddyblog which requires BP simple front end post from the same developer and I have also used User Blog They have different interfaces but function similarly.

    @rvnamb if you aren’t looking to do programming you may want to check out some of the plugins here. https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/recipes Some of them seem to integrate with Buddypress
