Better Introduction Needed
I installed buddypress because it sounded like a great idea, but I don’t know much about web building.
I wish there was more written about what buddypress can do and what the end result will look like. I don’t like the examples in the showcase because they don’t even remotely look like the buddypress that I have. I would love to see a very plain skeleton example of what buddypress does and how to set up a basic forum.
For instance what is the difference between a forum and a post. They look exactly alike in the dashboard.
And how do I tell my visitors where to start if I don’t know myself?
You can’t start a topic until you start a group. You can’t start a group because there are no topics. You can’t add a member because there are no groups to join.
Nothing but frustration.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a little welcome page saying, “Here’s how to set up your buddypress forums. First you create a few groups. Then add topics to each group. You can’t add this until you add that so start with this.
I just want an overview so that I can know if I’m doing something wrong or if there is a problem with the software when I can’t add a forum or don’t see my topic.
