WordPress is a supportive and open source environment where everyone helps each other out. When you are creating your own social networking site using WordPress, BuddyPress decreases the effort and time for you. Setting up a community site may seem challenging especially for a novice WordPress / BuddyPress User. This course simplifies this process and brings to the limelight some other plugins you can use to set up your community site.
We recommend using BuddyPress if you want to build a true community around your web. The type of network that will most help your site, be it a company intranet, a support site for your clients and customers, or a full-featured social network, can be built easily.
Should you also have any questions regarding customizing BuddyPress templates with BuddyBuilder, we advocate reaching out to us via the WordPress.org support forum for the free version and my.staxwp.com for the pro version.
