BuddyPress Plugin – Tab Style Directory

  • David_1


    Using WP version 3.7.0

    Can BuddyPress be used as more of a plugin than an entire site?
    I need a membership business directory for my WP child of Twenty Eleven Theme. Site can be seen at:

    I recall reading somewhere that it is possible to install BuddyPress and use only the portion(s) that will allow a members Profile directory while not taking over the
    sites design.

    I have uploaded two images to illustrate what I would like to create with buddyPress on my new WP Members Profile website at:

    Can anyone please tell me if BuddyPress can be set up this way? Offering a tabbed set up for the members? If anyone can vaidate or offer tutorial link(s) I would be grateful hearig from you.
    Many thanks in advance for youe time and expertise.

    You could use BuddyPress but something like gravity forms might be better since you would not be using 90% of BuddyPress



    Hello @modemlooper,

    Thank you for your advise. It is very much appreciated indeed.
    I will take a look at the Gravity Forms.

    I do not know if they, (Gravity Forms) have the tools / capability a tabbed style set up that we need. Perhaps that could be done with ‘User Meta’ or a Gravity Forms add-on plugin. (?)

    Any additional thoughts, or advice would be very appreciated!

    Thank you again @modemlooper



    I just learned that Gravity Forms is not free, but a Premium plugin.

    This brings me back to my original question, is there a way that I can install BP, (BuddyPress) on a minimal scale taking advantage of the Membership functionality while having an individual page for each member so that each Member can upload their own content such as their images and text?

    I still need to find a way to create the Tabbed set up for the individual Member pages (which is what the client really is after) later.

    The immediate I need to ascertain is can I install BP on a minimal scale taking advantage of the Membership functionality only, while keeping my twentyeleven child theme in tact.

    Many thanks for your input, suggestions and / or links to tutorials BP Community.



    You would need the coding knowledge of php, html and css.
