The BuddyNotes plugin lets your BuddyPress members create and manage personal notes from their Profile page on the front-end. The plugin adds a Notes tab on each user’s profile page . Each note starts with the creator’s name and a timestamp.

The site administrator can:

  • Specify the roles that can access BuddyNotes 
  • Show member stats in the Notes tab
  • View a sortable and searchable list of all notes in the Admin Dashboard

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.
