Fun & flexible software for online communities, teams, and groups
BuddyPress helps you build any kind of community website using WordPress, with member profiles, activity streams, user groups, messaging, and more.
BuddyPress is a powerful community plugin for WordPress that takes your site beyond the blog. It includes all of the features you’ve come to expect from any online community, like user profiles, groups, activity streams, notifications, and more.
BuddyPress comes with several components that integrate directly with your site, with each other, and even with other plugins (check out bbPress for support forums.) If you only want to use a few features, BuddyPress will automatically adapt, showing only the menu items, pages and buttons for the features you have enabled.
BuddyPress is a GPL licensed open-source project made possible by thousands of contributors and believers around the world. Patches and RFC’s are helpful and encouraged and props are given and gathered for each major software release.
