What is BuddyPress?
BuddyPress is a free plugin for WordPress that is used to add social networking features. For newcomers, think of BuddyPress as an out-of-the-box social networking website, complete with an administration area that lets you manage the site. Our themes rely on having a self-hosted version of WordPress with the BuddyPress plugin installed on your own website.

How does the Wall Component work?
The Wall uses BuddyPress’ built-in Activity posts and cleverly uses them as interactive wall-to-wall posts. The Wall can be toggled on or off by the site administrator – if the Wall is turned off your site will revert to the default setup. If you enable “User Photo Uploading” you can upload images into the Wall as well.
What types of images and videos can users embed in Wall posts?
Standard image types (jpg, png, gif) can be uploaded if you enable “User Photo Uploading”.
Images and videos can also be embedded from the following sites by pasting in the link to the image/video URL:
- Flickr (both videos and images)
- FunnyOrDie.com (WordPress 3.0+)
- Instagram (WordPress 3.5+)
- SlideShare (WordPress 3.5+)
- SoundCloud (WordPress 3.5+)
- SmugMug (WordPress 3.0+)
- Twitter (WordPress 3.4+)
- YouTube (only public and “unlisted” videos and playlists – “private” videos will not embed)
- WordPress.tv (only VideoPress-type videos)
