Plugin Integrations

BuddyMessageUX

The BuddyMessageUX is a FREE plugin that allows users to send messages without leaving their profile page.

The plugin uses the ‘Thickbox’ code built into WordPress for the styling of the message pop-up.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

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.
