GenesisConnect 1.0 Plugin for BuddyPress Available

We are very happy to announce the GenesisConnect plugin for BuddyPress is now available. Many of you are aware that Ron and Andrea Rennick had built an add-on called GenesisBuddy, which integrated Genesis and BuddyPress.

One of the issues was that GenesisBuddy took the form of a child theme that had to be integrated with our Genesis child themes in order to work. While the process wasn’t difficult, it added an extra step which together, we felt was unnecessary.

Rebuilding the GenesisBuddy Add-On

After discussions with Ron and Andrea, we decided that rewriting the code for GenesisBuddy was a good idea, and that there was a way to provide an easier solution to our users. Ron rebuilt the code in the form of a plugin, called GenesisConnect, and will be supported at StudioPress.

For anyone who purchased the GenesisBuddy Add-On, we have already emailed instructions on how to obtain the new GenesisConnect plugin, as well as how to get support. (which, by the way, is now available on the StudioPress support forum.)

So if you are ready to integrate BuddyPress with our child themes you can now do it simply using the GenesisConnect plugin. This plugin is not included in the Pro Plus All-Theme package, and will be sold separately here.

GenesisConnect supports all of the Genesis child themes listed below:
