An engaging service with an engaging product.
Community sites for user groups and more
Working with both WordPress & BuddyPress - studiocrafted will be able to implement all the required functionality for your community to perform as intended.
All projects are treated with care and attention which receive industry standard development processes until goals are met. You'll be kept in the loop through your account with studiocrafted.
Our end goal with a build like this is to offer a complete WordPress & BuddyPress theme with additional functionality supported through bespoke plugin development.
Users will have a dynamic profile page that shows their timeline, public details and other relevant information that can be enabled and disabled as required.
Group pages are available in this package. Groups can be used for members to engage directly with each other over a specific topic or theme.
Timelines and Activity
Timelines relate to the network and to individual users, this is a great hub to allow your community to stay up to date with each other through daily activity.
Users can be kept in the loop being notified by both email and on-site to their inbox, this functionality can be enhanced at a later date.
The full ecosystem of WordPress user permissions plus that of BuddyPress, enables moderators and admins for your network to curate content and activities.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is BuddyPress?
BuddyPress is a plugin built for WordPress which offers social network like features in order to run a community site. With support for timelines, user groups and private messaging to name a few.
You've done this for a while?
Yes, I've always maintained my knowledge with BuddyPress although it is a less common project for me to work on. I have developed community sites used by many thousands of users and also written articles for working within the platform in the past.
It's a large project and you'll be frequently updated about the progress.
Do I own the project files?
With all studiocrafted projects I ask you specifically to identify this, for a nominal fee you can own the files involved in the final theme and do with them as you see fit.
How do I pay you?
I'm open to suggestions but a base setting of 35% / 35% and 30% is usually the fairest way.
Yes, both WordPress and BuddyPress have taken steps to ensure GDPR is at the core of the platform, and I will make sure that the core of your project mimics this plus more.
Can we meet for a coffee?
No problem, if it's possible - let's do that.
