BuddyPress Training or Tutorials
Where can I find basic, but thorough and good tutorials on how to operate, setup, and manage BuddyPress?
- The topic ‘BuddyPress Training or Tutorials’ is closed to new replies.
@cuisire_ceo It depends but found the following most useful after googling so much to only come up with garbage past dated scraped/syndicated content.
The most important question is what the Purpose for Your BuddyPress Use/Community. The only way I have wrapped my head around it is to work backwards but with that said…
Heres What I consider some of the Best Round Ups and Buddy Pep to Follow:
Also check out her book that only seems most current: https://buddypress.org/2013/11/buddypress-theme-development-by-tammie-lister/
Boone Gorges @boonebgorges http://wordpress.tv/speakers/boone-gorges/ and most notable this presentation: http://wordpress.tv/2013/12/10/boone-gorges-herding-cats-with-the-buddypress-activity-component/
or anything Boone from Youtube via WordPressNYC great example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPpU3ySo5q0 in understanding of GROUPS.
Of course John James Jacoby jjj @johnjamesjacoby (sorry jjj: he rambles often:) but found this useful in just using a simple profile I believe this is the session maybe others can reference it “WordPress Profiles” http://wordpress.tv/2013/10/04/john-james-jacoby-everything-you-want-to-know-about-bbpress-and-buddypress/
So you probably thinking Wow but you have not answered anything on installing Believe me it helps so much to think big picture of your whole community than start working backwards as single page/components to map similarities to constructed it.
This is one of the most useful tutorial of theme I had purchased which the developer went MIA but it was an AHA moment for me. Because Buddypress are Custom Post Types thats Relational Data/Fields

. I know what you thinking this is not my intent or not relevant. Start watching #2 at 2:16 to think in context of Simalirty.
Finally, The only other best other video tutorial that just a setup instruction. I have found online was BuddyBoss (don’t even own the Theme) http://www.youtube.com/playlistlist=PL5kBYJSuuvEj3KqG_lnAa9MxpZumjtTdY
and Mathis on VIMEO. The biggest problem is finding the resources in a central location so I have to track down.
I hope that helps as resources. It really would depend on how you see your community of your people and how its relational in context
