Re: The BuddyPress next generation API, the journey begins
Going to attempt to get this thread back on track with a summary of what I am seeing so far.
The hot keywords in no particular order:
There seems to be a general consensus that BuddyPress is an application that allows even novice techies to easily add a social network or community component to their WP site. It provides the most essential tools for achieving this “right out of the box”. Since everyone is marketing their site to their niche, BuddyPress needs to be configurable and flexible enough to allow them to pick and choose what features are right for them and to select those features from a deep directory of solid plugins.
