Is it possible to create a corporate community using BuddyPress?

  • hassansarwar



    I have been a wordpress user for a very long time and I also do themes and stuff every now and then. This time around I have a client who wants me to create a corporate community on his existing website with the following functions:

    User Profiles, User can follow each other, User can make guest posts (which will be approved by the administrator), Users can share links/videos, FAQ, Webinars etc.

    Since this is new for me – I would like to know if I can do all this using BuddyPress and how should I start? Would I be able to do this with BuddyPress or should I go with a third party tool and integrate it with wordpress manually. Also, If it helps; I am using the theme Jupiter by Artbees on the website currently.

    I also have no experience with MultiSite so anyone who can guide me a bit about it would be great.

    If you’re already using WordPress then BuddyPress might be a good option because of how tightly integrated the two are. BuddyPress is just a plugin so to get started you simply have to activate it from your WordPress dashboard.

    My advice would be to set up a test install and give BuddyPress a try. You’ll then get a feel for if it will meet your exact requirements. Lastly, if BuddyPress core doesn’t have the functionality you need, then you’ll find many plugins in the Plugin Directory written specifically for BuddyPress. Taking a quick look at your requirements, one that you may want to check out is BuddyPress Follow.



    Hey Henry,

    Thank you for the reply. I like the idea of installing a test site – I think that way I’ll be able to play around the plugin without worrying about my live website being messed up. Going to look into the plugin directory to see if I can find all the features I am looking.

    Thanks for your help – Really appreciate it!
