In this article we would like to present you one of the greatest open source projects today — WordPress MU and BuddyPress . WordPress and its logo are one of the most recognizable symbols on the open source market as popular as names such as Joomla, Mambo, Moodle, osCommerce and etc. Alike the others, WordPress has formed an extremely large community and has never stopped to evolve.
Today WordPress is one of the most commonly used blog platform world wide. Still, the great development team of WordPress did not stop with the creation of the best blog application. Another branch of WordPress is the powerful blog network application based on code of its predecessor the multi-user version. WordPress MU extends the functionality of WordPress to a whole new level providing you with the ability to create literary unlimited number of blogs. Additionally, your visitors may register and sign up for their own WordPress blog which will be created automatically without any actions required on your end.
Using the WordPress MU you can create your own blog network where your visitors can register and create their own stand alone WordPress blogs without any actions performed by the webmaster. Unfortunately, most hosting companies do not support wildcards (required both by WordPress MU and BuddyPress) due to some configuration settings that should be applied both in the DNS and Apache virtual host. Still, in a properly configured hosting enviropment this can be easily achieved and these requirements can be met without any additional charges.
After the WordPress MU the development team has released a new set of plugins and themes that extended the WordPress MU functionality even further. By releasing the BuddyPress pack, WordPress stepped into the social network field with almost unmet functionality and features. BuddyPress is a set of WordPress plugins and themes which extend the multi user version of WordPress with many social network features such as extended user profiles, private messaging, friends lists and groups as well as user wall (wire). BuddyPress contains all the features you would expect from WordPress but emphasize on the members social interaction.
