Just wondering if bbPress or BuddyPress are compatible with the Magazine Pro theme and will it work ok? I know there is a bbpress extend plugin for Genesis so I would have to load that as well. But what about BuddyPress – do I need to load any Genesis plugin for that?
I did try the DW Questions & Answers plugin but the genesis sidebar widget kept appearing even though I have the layout of the page to full width. I was a bit disappointed because I thought the plugin was pretty..
Can anyone give me an idea which is best to go with – any good question & Answers plugins or should I go with bbpress or Buddypress. And is Buddypress fully compatible?
Yes they are. I actually have it installed on a test site I am building using the News theme. I also have one on the Metro theme. If you want to build a social network, then use Buddypress and bbPress for your forums. I haven’t worked with the Questions & Answers Plugin before.
Buddypress is more for a social network website – similar like Facebook. bbPress is forum related for mainly discussions. Are you wanting a social net work with forum capabilities, or just a forum?
Reviving this as I’m trying to figure out whether to go Forum only or Forum plus Buddypress.
Anitac: when you say, “I actually have it installed on a test site I am building using the News theme”, do you mean you have both bbpress and buddypress installed, or just one?
In terms of deciding what to want – it is mainly for discussion forum for marketing ideas for attorneys. I like the social network side of things just in case groups want to create groups for their individual niches (bankruptcy, disability, personal injury, etc).
