The Invite Anyone plugin lets your BuddyPress users invite outsiders to join their site. The plugin also lets BuddyPress group administrators invite users to a group or to the site.
The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.
You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
