BuddyPress faq

We are glad to say that all of our servers meet the system requirements of the BuddyPress plugin. You just need to install it on your WordPress application and start building your online community.

BuddyPress is a free plugin designed for WordPress. It gives you the opportunity to build a community website and provides you with both the necessary functionalities of the social networking script combined with the intuitive interface of WordPress.

In order to install the latest version of the BuddyPress plugin the following requirements should be met:

  • Latest version of WordPress should be installed
  • PHP 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL 5.0 or greater
  • The mod_rewrite Apache module should be enabled

The answer is Yes - you can. The plugin is fully compatible with WordPress multi-site. You can install BuddyPress from the Network Admin dashboard.

Since BuddyPress is adding functionalities to your WordPress application you should configure some features. You can do that from the Dashboard > Settings > BuddyPress


You will be able to see that the page is divided on three sections -  Components, Pages and Settings. On the first page, you can check the enabled by default components and manage them. On the second section, you can manage the pages associated with your website. The Settings section allows you to make changes to the basic configuration of your social network and your members.

The BuddyPress URLs are based on the WordPress permalinks and they can be easily reconfigured from the Dashboard > Settings > PermalinksThere you can choose how you would like to see the URLs associated with your website having in mind the ease of access and the SEO.

In case that the theme you are using does not have a preset navigation menu you can easily create such from the WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Menus > Create a MenuThere you should set a name to it and define it as Primary Navigation menu. Once it is created you can add your BuddyPress pages to it and they will appear on the top of your website.

If your theme supports more than one column you can add a sidebar to some or all of the pages of your website. This can be achieved from the Dashboard > Appearance > WidgetsThere you can drag and drop different features to the exact location where you want to place them.

If you would like to familiarize yourself with the BuddyPress functionality before you start building your social network you can achieve that by installing an additional plugin called BuddyPress Default DataIt will import the necessary data such as users, groups, profile information, friend connections and activity items, so you can simulate the functioning of the website once it is released.

The BuddyPress plugin has a built-in component responsible for maintaining a forum but we do not actually recommend it due to the fact that it is limited to very few functionalities. 


Instead of this component, we suggest using the bbPress plugin, designed for WordPress which provides you with various features for managing a forum.

In case that you are experiencing such issue, you should make sure that the GD image library is enabled for your account. If TMDHosting is your current hosting provider you can easily enable this feature from your cPanel > Select PHP VersionAlternatively, if you are not sure how to do that, you can always open a support ticket from your Client Area with us and our Technical Support Team will gladly assist you further.
