Turning BuddyPress into an imageboard.

  • Hi,

    I’m considering using BuddyPress for a social image board like website. Basically what I want is a front-page that has user uploads displayed in tumblr-like style and a system for rating/voting “pending” uploads which will be pushed to the front-page. Is such a thing possible and what plugins are already available that would help me do this?

    Thanks so much,

  • With the power of WordPress, It can (and has) been done.

    Two ways that i can think of.
    1. Use wordpress’ built in post types and create a front end post form (search the wp plugin repo) or having a look at’s code and using one of the hundreds of post voting plugins (search the wp plugin repo) for the voting feature (for the pending part, have a look at to see how they achieved it. while, it’s for articles rather than pictures it is a similar concept.)

    2. Creating a custom buddypress component (see the skeleton component) and’s pages on custom components and plugins developement.
