The BuddyPress Integration is a premium addon which makes GeoDirectory and BuddyPress work as a single integrated app, allowing you to create a hybrid listings directory and social network.
GeoDirectory will automatically start using the BuddyPress registration form to add new directory users to your BuddyPress network. The integration adds a Listings, Favorites, and Reviews tab to the user’s profile page which users can use to submit and review istings.
The integration works and requires GeoDirectory, and 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.
