    @mpesgt01

    I want to know if I can make a website as is :

    – WP for info pages, blog news and articles, written by maybe 5 writters

    – Forum for my 2000+ members so they can still chat

    – Galery (like Menalto) so members can upload their photos (and maybe link youtube videos too)

    ??

    (of course, without having different users logins)

  • Hi MPESGT01

    I’ve an Idea, I hope you’ll like it.

    You MUST consider WP and bbPress for your whole project. With this you can do everything….

    An Awesome WP Theme for your info pages, blogs etc.

    A seamless bbpress forums for discussion.

    They can be integrated for Shared users, Database and Cookies Easily…

    For Gallery

    Never use Menalto for gallery. its out dated and less features and will be really hard to integrate it with your WP. Its my experience.

    My Solution:

    There is a really awesome / outstanding plugin for Picture Gallery. And It will definitely meet your requirements. I personally love this author’s work.

    It’s PhotoSmash

    Users can upload photos, for videos you can ask in his forums.

    This gallery plugin is really really good, I can’t stop to write about it.

    Dozens of cool features And…………….

    Best of Luck,

    Pagal

    Hi Pagal. Thanks for the answers

    I didnt know that Menalto was out-dated. I’ve heard or Coppermine also….

    I saw Photosmash… nice integration with a WP blog… but how can it be compatible with a community (bbpress forum) ?

    What is the difference between WP + Buddypress -versus- WP + bbpress ??

    Regarding Photosmash questions please consider their community

    What is the difference between WP + Buddypress -versus- WP + bbpress ??

    In what sense you are asking for??

    Generally;

    WP + Buddypress

    Well Buddypress is all about Social Networking. You can Build a social network for your company, school, sports team or niche community all based on the power and flexibility of WordPress. Its a combination of WPMU and BuddPress plugin. But Now you can do it with WPMS.

    WP + bbPress

    with this you can create a beautiful website or blog based on WP CMS along this community forums for discussion with bbPress.

    WP ( multi-site) + BuddyPress = Social networking site ( like, facebook, hi5, orcut orkut etc.

    WP + bbPress = Beautiful website or blog + Community forums.

    Thanks,

    P.

    …so if I install

    WP + bbpress forum + a galerie plug-in….

    i should arrive pretty close to having installed

    WP + BuddyPress (turning off members blog, activity stream, groups) + a galleri plug-in

    both these ways should arrive close to the same thing if i get it right ?

    Yes, right, I’ve tried now.

    WPms and bbpress will be best bet.

    Go ahead, best of luck.
