buddypress for non-bloggers, take 2?
i found this post: http://buddypress.org/community/groups/creating-extending/forum/topic/making-buddypress-a-social-network-for-non-bloggers/ which talks about what it is i am looking for info on…making buddypress work for non-bloggers…
but the thread is pretty old…and i am super new to buddypress, still figuring out how it works, and could use some pointers on how to make a site that functions very similar to tastykitchen.com. i’m guessing they hacked the heck out of buddypress, like the original poster of the above post mentioned? is there not now a way to do something similar to tasty kitchen with buddypress out-of-the-box or with some plugins?
i am not interested in setting my users up with blogs…i simply want the simple social aspects, profiles, forums, etc. something very simple for users…
i know that at some point recently (no idea when, haven’t read the details anywhere yet) WPMU became obsolete and the features integrated into the standard WP installation…so i’m wondering if this change and also the latest updates to WP and buddypress might affect this topic of buddypress for non-bloggers?
can someone please update me on how this situation is now, in july 2011, with the latest installations of WP and buddypress and relevant plugins?
a list of plugins that could be configured to have similar functionality to what is seen at tastykitchen.com would be wonderful! i’m hoping some of the things that would have to have been hacked before, maybe no longer need to be? maybe there are new plugins that cover these features?
i’ll post separately the features i’m looking for…this got long!
