solution for user generated content site

I'm trying to derermine the best solution for a client wordpress site. They want to have a user generated content site where users can upload videos/audio. Which do you recommend:

- Buddypress with the membership plugin
- standard wordpress with the membership plugin
- just buddypress

  • Nastia
    • Support Rock Star

    Hello cornelius_butler , thank you for your question.

    Buddypress and the Membership plugin, each plugin is great but have different functions.

    With the Buddypress plugin a user can interact with each other, post link of the audio or video on the Activity page.

    The Membership plugin's main function is to protect and monetize site content. You can also assign user capabilities to members based on their membership, with "Member Capabilities" add-on. You can change the user capability from Subscriber to Author so members will be able too share contect by adding a new post.

    You can make a desizion here based on when user will be posting the content? Using the BuddyPress activity feed, or WordPress post.

    Of course you can use both plugins on one site as well.

    I hope this will help!
