Not sure what to use
Totally new to bbpress and buddypress; very experienced in WP.
One of our sites is a public site that services a new interest group. There is an informal small number of people (a fraction of total visitor population who visit the WP site) who are very active in developing the group and expanding the geographical adaption of the subject of the website. They interface with municipal departments, community events organizations, the educational community (public and private), etc; all of whom will be invited to participate in this private forum.
The Goal: We need a separate forum for this group where they can communicate within on each persons results and ideas on a number of projects. We don’t care if these people are already registered users of the WP site. In other words, it’s just fine if the forum is ‘stand-alone’ with it’s own registration. It does have to be private however; i.e., the opening home page needs to be a log-in page not showing the forum(s) content, and access is only available to registered users who will be added by the forum administrators only.
Not being at all informed on either bbpress or buddypress, and not finding the answers I need after many hours of reading through both the bbpress and buddypress sites, I installed bbpress in a subdomain to the WP install. (I used the Simple Scripts install from the hosting company we use, so I’m assuming that it was not a plugin install, but instead a full bbpress install; which appears to be working fine – just not provding me with the secured login we need.)
So the Questions: Is bbpress the right choice here, or should I be looking at something else? If something else, I’m open to suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
