BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.

Creating a new automation

Automations are the basic building block of the AutomatorWP WordPress plugin. Every automation has triggers and actions. A trigger is what happens first to tell the site to run an action.  An automation effectively tells your WordPress site, “if this happens then do that“. Triggers are the “this” in that example; actions are “that”. To create a new automation for BuddyPress-related triggers:

  1. Go to WordPress Dashboard > AutomatorWP > Automations and click the Add New Automation button.
  2. Enter a title for the automation.
  3. In the Triggers meta box, click the Add Trigger button and click the BuddyPress integration and select the trigger for the automation. Click the Save button to save the changes to the trigger.
  4. In the Actions meta box, click the Add Action button and click the BuddyPress integration and select the action for the automation. Click the Save button to save the changes to the action. Optionally, you can set actions for other integrations based on the BuddyPress-related triggers. For example, enroll the user to a LearnDash course. 
  5. In the Status meta box, select Active.
  6. Click the Save and Activate button to publish the automation.
