Is it possible to use BP just for member profiles and displaying avatars?

    I haven’t installed BP yet, but am trying to find ways to add member profiles and avatars for my members and wonder if BP might be good for that? I am creating a private paid membership blog through WP. I have been told that I could use a few plugins to, possibly, create member profiles, but I would love to find something in one place that is simple and elegant. I won’t have forums (conversation will take place in the comments of blog posts). I am used to Blogger with its Followers (now Google friend connect) and linked profile pages. I believe I can use that with WP, but am not clear that it would work in a private blog…so that is why I am considering other ways to achieve it, and someone mentioned that BP might help.

    Is anyone using BP in this way?

    You can use as much or as little of BuddyPress as you want. So yes you can just use the membership components – avatar, profile, sign up.
