Community with BuddyPress

A session at WordCamp Orlando 2011

Saturday 3rd December, 2011

9:30am to 10:30am (EST)

Adding social network capabilities to your blog or website can be an exciting way to drive content and interact with your audience. BuddyPress can offer a lot of these capabilities, but can sometimes be intimidating in terms of the number of features and then the customization of those features.

This discussion will address how to use BuddyPress for a variety of projects and sites – beyond just simply adding a “social network” to your blog. We will explore how you can customize BuddyPress templates and functions to alter and add components for custom projects. We’ll also check out some great customizable plugins. The goal is to have fun and explore what BuddyPress can really do. Although there will be some discussion of code, this is general enough in nature to appeal to those new to BuddyPress or even non-developers.
