Difference between bbPress and Buddy Press?

Recommended Posts

Michael_J

In a nutshell? I did the quick Google search but could not find a simple explanation. I'm looking for a forum but would also like to consider any broader social networking features that Buddy Press may have to offer...

The look of the two is definitely different and the way the two are set up and managed is different, as well. You can also look at examples here of Buddy Press here and examples of bbPress here.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

So there are no forum posts anywhere that compare the two?

bbpress is a forum plugin and buddypress is a social networking platform.

What are the differences? Does buddypress include a forum capability? If so, is it in some way a superset?

I don't think buddypress has a forum its just a social network, but I believe you can install them both together. There is a buddypress demo site somewhere in which you can try it out for yourself.
