I love Buddypress!
I have had a few Buddypress projects recently, and I have to say, I love it! I have been working with a fantastic charity (more on that later) to redevelop their site into a fully fledged social network. Buddypress is awesome for a job like this, especially if you can customise the s**t out of it!
Between myself and another (core) developer of Buddypress, we have made quite the number of changes and custom plugins that make this social network quite unique. Since taking on project number 1, I found myself being very inquisitive, taking things apart, putting them back together, breaking stuff, just trying to see how far I could push it… and I have to say, it is very flexible!
I have since started to get involved in 4 new Buddypress sites of one size or another, from the very basic default theme that needs a nice new skin, to the totally awesome brand new theme. It really is amazing.
I just wanted to put that out there. I have a lot of love for Buddypress!
