Plugin Integrations

BuddyPress Member Types Pro

The BuddyPress Member Types Pro plugin allows you to create and manage member types for your BuddyPress based social network easily.

You can create/edit/activate/deactivate/remove member types. Also, use shortcodes to embed your member lists on posts/pages.

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.
