BuddyPress Poke

The BuddyPress Poke plugin lets you add the poke feature for your users just like Facebook.

Your BuddyPress users can poke (or nudge) their connections directly with the Poke button a user’s profile.

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.
