I must applogize in advance for asking so many questions but I am anxious to get started and so far I have still not got a live site. It looks to me that I can't do anything at all until I get a rather large number of plugins downloaded and installed.
Mine will be a humor site where friends can exchange blogs, stories, photos, video, etc. and communicate with each other. We will also have a few ads to support local small businesses. The site will have both "members" and visitors. I mention all that because it describes the kind of functions I would like to have on the site.
I have reviewed all of the pluggins listed on the WPMU DEV site. I have also reviewed the buddy press plugins listed on the wordpress site. A few plugins were suggested to me earlier in response to a more general question. It looks to me that I must download ALL of the plugins listed below. Is this true? Are they the correct plugins for their type of function? I have marked two of them with "X" because the compatibility with WP3/BP seems questionable according to the WP site but there seems to be no viable substiture for them. Is this true?
I will very much appreciate any guidance you will give.
