Progressive implementation of BP/How to start

  • I would like to start with a progressive implementation of BP.

    By this I mean that the first thing I will start with just a WPMU blog built using Justin Tadlock´s Hybrid framework and then add bbP and last BP after I graphically adapt both to the blog´s design.

    What I would like to know is how do I proceed regarding the three apps, because the blog will have comments enabled only to registered users, and I would like those users to register only ONCE. How do I proceed in order to use that data for the later BP ?

    Do I have to install the three apps and “deactivate” bbP and BP until I am ready ? If not, how do I “transfer” the registered users profiles/info to bbP and next to BP ?

    I would like to add that my intention is to use gigya plugin for twitter & Facebook logins.

    Re: comments… you don’t have to worry because WPMU takes care of everything.

    One username will be able to comment on all blogs (provided they’re logged in).

    Installing bbPress and integrating it with WPMU will also take care of single sign-on.

    FYI, I would install in the following order: WPMU > BP > bbPress.

    Also, I’ve never used Gigya.

    Thanks Ray, this is excellent feedback.

    I am plannig in installing Intensedebate for comments, can it play well with BP ?



    Never tried IntenseDebate either… but it should play well with BP since IntenseDebate syncs comments to its own server, but I could be wrong.

    El_Terko, I am not sure but you might have a problem with Gigya on the bbpress side and especially with member blogs. Please share your experience with both Gigya and IntenseDebate.

    @Korhan thanks for the warning. At the beginning I won´t have any member blogs, just the “main” one. My project will start with the latest news about the football team I support (like Feherbace !) and then evolve to a fan community with forum.

    That´s why it Facebook login will prove very useful

    Regarding ID, I don´t think I will implement it until they provide front-end translation, which is in their roadmap but with no ETA yet.

    @r-a-y thanx again
