Need WPMU/BuddyPress Developers\' Opinion
Okay… I’m yet to use WPMU/BuddyPress, but have been anxious to do so. I just got a project that seems to be suited for WPMU/BuddyPress. But, I’m not 100% sure. So, I was hoping to get some input before I begin, to see if it is the right option. I’m currently developing a separate site in Elgg, and had thought of that as the other option. I just really prefer WP as a platform.
The site is going to be a community (I know, shocker that will have your standard stuff: profiles, messaging, etc. But, the catch is the users don’t need to have blogs. I just need the community features. (And the admin will, of course, benefit from the CMS features.) Their profiles are the key part of the site. They will be visible/searchable by other users.
I read that back in March there had been some talk of BuddyPress for standard WP. But, I guess that didn’t pan out. Otherwise, I suppose that may have been a better choice.
In addition, if WPMU/BuddyPress is a good choice for a site such as this, without the individual blogs, etc., would you think the hosting requirements would be less than a WPMU install used for multiple blogs?
I hope this all makes sense. I’m just trying to figure out if it’s feasible to use WPMU/BuddyPress for this. (eg: Is it fairly straightforward? etc.) I appreciate any help/input you guys have. Thanks in advance!
