BuddyPress+bbPress Rating/Featuring/Better WYSIWYG Plugins

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for viewing this topic.

    So… where do I start.

    I have recently installed BuddyPress with WordPress.

    The idea is to create a website that is a cross between news sites like NYTimes and Facebook.

    To have users become both the journalists and the viewers.

    However, at the moment I’m facing a lot, a lot of inconsistencies.

    For example: Should I allow users to even get into the WordPress posting dashboard?

    I’d like to make it so users can post on the forums with a good WYSIWYG editor – that they can add images, videos etc. like a normal forum. Then, other users can rate the posts up or down – so that the home page can show which posts have the most views, which posts are highest rated, and so on. However, this has been difficult to do…

    So I’d like to ask whether there are plugins… or perhaps any assistance on how one can accomplish that?

    I would greatly appreciate any help given here.

    Thanks.

    This is the bbPress support forum. Despite the name the forum component of BuddyPress isn’t (the real) bbPress.

    Yeah… thanks zaerl for pointing that out.

    I guess my intention is really to have a bbPress forum, supported with a WYSIWYG editor similar to that of WordPress’.

    At the moment however, installing bbPress doesn’t provide that function and I’d like to find out if there’s any way to do it.

    I’d like to let users post up references e.g. images/videos that are useful to a thread they started, like how most forums allow it, and be able to let others rate the posts.

    This way the home page can feature the posts which carry weight. For example, which posts have the highest views for the day, which posts are highly rated, and so on.

    I’m inexperienced with programming, kindly forgive me if I use the terms wrongly.
