BuddyPress Plugin Development

As the creators of the wildly popular BuddyBoss theme, we have a team of specialized designers and developers who understand BuddyPress plugin development inside and out. We love to push the boundaries of what WordPress and BuddyPress can do. API integrations, BuddyPress custom functionality, appointment scheduling, course platforms and more. If you can imagine it, we can build it! Contact us today about your custom BuddyPress plugin.

Plugins add a lot of functionality to your community. Below are some BuddyPress plugins we often use and recommend.

BuddyBoss-Integrated

  • BP Profile Search
    Adds a configurable search form to your Members directory, so visitors can find site members by searching their extended profiles. This plugin is deeply integrated with the BuddyBoss theme.
  • myCRED points management
    Adds a highly customizable points management system to your BuddyPress site. The BuddyBoss add-on allows points for BuddyBoss Wall Likes, Wall Updates and Photo Uploads.

Premium Plugins (Contact Forms, Payments, Subscriptions)

  1. Gravity Forms
    Allows you to easily create forms, view and edit entries within WordPress, receive email notifications, and export form entries to Excel. You can even configure it to let your users create blog posts from the front-end! It is a superb plugin.
  2. WooCommerce
    A freely available eCommerce plugin that enables shop facilities on your WordPress website. They have extensions to allow for on-site payment processing with PayPal Pro, Stripe, and many others. You can have the plugin automatically create WordPress users for you during the order process, and then they can log in to make further purchases. Incredibly easy to use and powerful. We use WooCommerce on BuddyBoss.com for selling our themes.
  3. WooCommerce BuddyPress Integration
    Integrates your WooCommerce data with your BuddyPress profiles, so logged in users can view their purchase history from within their BuddyPress account. We are using this on BuddyBoss.com. Click “My Downloads” while logged in to see it in action.
  4. s2Member
    Allows you to restrict access to content based on up to four membership levels. It integrates seamlessly with PayPal Pro for on-site payment and fully supports recurring billing, with the ability to track affiliate commissions on a recurring basis.

Website Maintenance

  • WordPress Database Backup
    Provides scheduled backups of your core WordPress database tables and saves them to your server and can even email them to you.
  • WP DB Optimizer
    Optimize your database tables in one click for improved speed performance.
  • Quick Page/Post Redirect
    Allows you to redirect links within your website. Useful for migrating a website, changing domains and forwarding outdated pages to newer pages.

Spam Prevention

  • Akismet
    Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not. This plugin comes packaged with WordPress and we highly recommend using it. You need to sign up for an API key.
  • BuddyPress Security Check
    Adds a field to the BuddyPress registration form where the user needs to answer a simple math sum before registering. This is an effort to stop spam bots from registering on your site, and from our experience it does a good job.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

  • All in One SEO Pack
    Optimizes your WordPress site for search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
