Hi, I am creating a site that will allow users to create blogs, with standard needs for membership control and such. I have buddypress on my test site, but am confused - what is better - to have just WP and use these new plugins:
"Alongside that we've developed alternative functionality for sites that would prefer not to use BuddyPress, including:
A fully functional 'friends' plugin: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/friends
A powerful communities framework, with wikis: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/communities
A complete messaging component: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/messaging
A custom forums solution: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/forums"
Or, to use BP? I want payment integration as well....any thought on what the major differences are regarding this choice, to buddypress or not to buddypress?
Thanks in advance,
