Buddypress version 1.0 has been released


A small introduction To all those people who are ignorant about Buddypress.

BuddyPress is a suite of WordPress plugins and themes, each adding a distinct new feature. BuddyPress contains all the features you’d expect from WordPress but aims to let members socially interact.

In short, Buddypress strives to bring Social Networking to the Wordpress by building a layer above the Wordpress MU platform. This project has been in development for almost an year and has finally got a public release with Andy Peatling announcing the release of Buddypress in the blog.

As many of the visitors might already know that Social Networking the defining phase of New Media, the recent release makes it easier for anyone to run their own blogging based social networking site. Coupled with twitter, BuddyPress is going to rock the world of Internet and changes the way we use it. (Or atleast I hope so).

  • http://www.reviewerguy.com Thales@Hummingbird Review

    I tried to install this on my wordpress blog, but everything messed up. lol
    I think it was because I used a plugin that install plugins directly from the control panel without having to upload.. I'll try to do a manual upload of the plugin and see if it works. :)

    Buddypress will need a lot more extensive marketing campaign before it can compete with big guys. Most people have never heard of it.

    Thank You Once again..

    @maria , I didn't really get the "compete with the big boys" comment. Are there other "Buddy-like" apps that you are referring too? I only know of a couple add-ons for Joomla/Mambo that could be considered competition.

  • http://www.eurekatips.com LuckyMurari

    @jeff I dunno what maria was referring to but, I know some like socialengine , dolphin etc.

    Hello, honestly, I'm not quite familiar with Buddypress, it definitely needs more marketing and exposure. But, I really found it very interesting. So, I'm definitely going to try it out. Thank you very much for sharing this.

    Finaly a full version, I try not to download anything under 1.0 so I'm really excited about this release. Great news.

    Wow, this is the software that I want to download, thanks for the info buddy !

  • http://hubpages.com/hub/information-about-cat-sneezing john@cat sneezing hater

    Alright I have already download it !!!

  • http://www.zele-uv.pl Patty@Tipsy

    This really looks interesting, though I have to agree with one of those that commented before me that it needs marketing. Just because it's a great tool doesn't mean it'll automatically be successful. And from what I can see, it should be.

    So with this plugin, i can change my boring old blog into a facebook wannabe ? Cool. Now all I need to do is figure how exactly, but that's for me to worry about ;) thanks!

    Sounds a bit like the CCK for Drupal. Does this have any value, especially for small blogs? I'm not critical, just wondering if the features are worth the effort when you could build a custom social network using other platforms.

  • http://www.joomlatag.com alberta@JTag Helpdesck

    lets start using it...
    share us some free version.. hehehehe!

    I would love it.
    Thanks again.

Its the fo the first time i came to know about Buddypress is from your post right now.I have checked out some features which are ubercool, but Buddy let become Buddypress everyone's buddy..make it more popular dude! :idea:

  • http://www.eurekatips.com LuckyMurari

    Hey , I think you are mistakenly assuming that Buddypress is my creation. I am no way affiliated to it and its just a news :) I see buddypress has to evolve lot more till it becomes mainstream

  • http://www.eurekatips.com LuckyMurari

    I guess I'm an ignorant cause I didn't know about BuddyPress... :oops:

    I think that the time is right to change something about it! I'll try BP and see is it really giving much possibilities. Also good to know that the program is free ;)

  • http://www.eurekatips.com LuckyMurari

    Glad that we could add to your knowledge :) Please do post your findings here :)

  • http://www.eurekatips.com LuckyMurari

    PHPBB is a forum, where as Buddypress is a wordpress alternative for a social networking site. How do you run ur autoblog on forum software?

  • Luciewagner@DermaSensation Review

    Do you accept guest posts? I would love to write couple articles here. I was wondering what is up with that weird gravatar??? I know 5am is early and I'm not looking my best at that hour, but I hope I don't look like this! I might however make that face if I'm asked to do 100 pushups. lol
