For the next meeting, March 12th, the "theme" will be BuddyPress!
I know we initially had a couple of ideas for the March meeting but, for a couple of reasons, they will have to be put off a month or two.
BuddyPress is a package of plugins, and is claimed to be "Social networking in a box." There are pros and cons, but it effectively allows you to create your own niche social network for a company, school or team, built on a standard installation of WordPress.
I have a live installation of BuddyPress set up, so we can walk through the back end and take a look at the installation, setup and features.
I also have a request:
Please! - if anyone is using BuddyPress in a production site, or is in the midst of creating one, please let me know and, if you're willing, we can discuss your project, why you chose BuddyPress, what issues you faced, etc.
Before March 12th, visit BuddyPress.org to learn more about what BuddyPress does, visit testbp.org to try a working version of BuddyPress, and come to the meeting armed with questions, likes, dislikes, ideas!
See you on the 12th!
