Is a site like this possible?

  • HappyCloud


    Hi all,

    I’m new to Buddypress but pretty seasoned with WordPress.

    I have been asked by a client to produce a kind of photographer’s social network site, similar to `` and `` and I wondered if Buddypress was a possible solution?

    I have zero experience with Drupal or Joomla so, if possible, I would love to be able to stick with WordPress on this.

    The site would need to have the following features;

    Private messaging,
    Photo uploads,
    Photo gallery creation
    Photo / photo gallery commenting,
    Facebook style ‘Friends’

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    I’m in the same boat, experienced in WordPress and building my first BuddyPress site. I can’t speak to all the specifics of the photo gallery but overall I’d say yes, a site like that is possible. I’d be surprised if there wasn’t a good photo gallery BP plugin out there.

    BuddyPress functions should be pretty intuitive if you know WordPress, although BuddyPress is not as well documented. So it helps if you know enough PHP to understand how a function works just by reading the code.

    Good luck!



    There’s BP Gallery by Bradesh (, which is ready to be used on a production site, but has a price tag. And then there’s BP Album + by foxly and francescolaffi (, which isn’t quite ready for a production site, but is free and shows a lot of promise.
