BuddyPress 1.0 Has Arrived!!


BuddyPress 1.0 Has Arrived.: Andy announced the release of BuddyPress 1.0 on the BuddyPress community Blog and there was much rejoicing. This was an excellent opportunity to get my WLTC Community project off the ground and I was an like installation fiend as soon as I finished work on my day job.

So without further ado, especially if you want to play around with BuddyPress, please head over to the shiny new WLTC Community and register for either a username or a blog. I hope to meet you there!

    This looks like a really cool project, I’m going to install it this morning on one of my domains and give it a try instead of struggling to write basically the same from scratch for a dating site concept. :)

    Quick question: What kind of server is your install running on, shared or dedicated? Do you think shared would be good enough for users who want to run small sites – say about 100-200 blogs? Thanx!

      Dedicated server. It all depends on the frequency of posting and traffic in my experience.

      If you think your site is really going to pick up and you want to start “armored”, then used dedicated, but if not sure and want to cut some expenses for now, you may want to start with a good shared host like HostGator – they are prepared for the case you then needed to move to a dedicated server – yet, the shared is in my opinion – the best (who knows if your site might never even need more than that – if you keep it within the limits allowed).

    Looks like a great new tool. How do we know if we have MU installed or the regular version of WP. I used Fantastico within Hostgator. Thanks

    Perfect timing as I am looking to use Buddy Press on a site that I am redeveloping. Although a member site where people know or know of each other, forums did not take off. I am hoping Buddy Press may help develop a closer community.

    Very exciting proposal. I run a couple of membership sites but I’m really looking for something that’s far more SEO friendly and WP blog based. Imagine my surprise when Buddy Press appeared. Next social site will be a Private Bank Directory – hope with my limited tech knoeledge I can pull it off.
