Is bbpress or buddypress for me?

  • danwakeweb


    Hey Guys,

    I have been developing WordPress themes for about 6 years now. I need to create a website where the landing/home page is visible to the public and a few pages that are for members only. The members also need profiles and can only be signed up by the admin.

    Ive been thinking maybe I could create a WordPress site with just a few pages for the public and a private bbpress forum with the registered users and their profiles? I have no experience with bbpress at all so don’t know if it would suit this application.

    The other option that I saw was buddypress but can this be made private and have restricted content for the members?

    It is essentially for a private association.

    Thanks guys

  • BuddyPress is based on bbPress. So if BuddyPress has the things you look for, then go for it 🙂

    Both BuddyPress and bbPress are WordPress plugins, so user management is done in WordPress. It are all ‘normal’ WordPress users with extra roles/capabilities.

    Hope this helps you making your choice.
