Take a note of this
Of course when WP 3.0 and BP 1.3 come out – all bets are off till plugins have been upgraded to both WP and BP versions
Thats a subjective question considering every network will require different plugins. Thats the beauty of open source. You have a ton of choices.
Better question would be: I have an X network what plugins are right for it?
Yeah, I’d say that because Buddypress is a bit kitchen-sinky, in my experience it’s a good idea to think about what kind of community you’re going to try and build (or move to BP), then think about what kind of functionality they might want, then how to build it, then look at plugins or code snippets or whatever that will allow you to do that. That’s generally best-practice, anyway.
A default Buddypress install can be confusing and daunting for new users.
I’m not sure there’s really a way to categorize what the membership will be. Basically people who’ve purchased one of my internet marketing products.
When they buy something I sign them up automatically for the community and then can hook up with other folks to network.
A network of “networkers: I suppose would be the closest.
@mercime thanks for that post, that certainly helps.
I’m thinking more of the “must haves” ie: you wouldn’t be able to survive without Flash Player, or Adobe Reader, or a Zip utility on your computer, or I wouldn’t anyway. More like that, stuff that is just a must have to building a cool functional community.
