Why not use Buddypress?

Hello

Does anyone have any advice pertaining to the pros and cons of using Buddypress versus using the Friends, Community, Forums and Messaging plugins?

Why do some people not want to use Buddypress?

    Hiya Dustin,

    Personal preference :slight_smile:

    A few key differences are;
    - BuddyPress is 'heavier'
    - Extra themeing isn't required for Friends, Community, Forums and Messaging
    - Other plugins are more likely to be compatible with Friends, Community, Forums and Messaging
    - BuddyPress is more integrated
    - BP uses bbPress for forums, which are more feature rich than our basic offering.

    Thanks,
    Phil
