Provider Engagement Network: BuddyPress

Building a platform to engage with people can be tricky. Here Carl Haggerty talks through a case study of how in Devon they have used Buddypress as a platform to engage and share ideas.

I suggested we create a buddy press test site on my teams hosting and we explore it further with some of his other colleagues the following week.

So that is what we did,  we sat down and went through the out of the box features and they loved it…we refined some of the features and created some additional privacy which took about 2-3 hours  – we didn’t even create any visual design aspects, as we said we could apply these at any time once they had them created. We then handed over a fully functioning online network platform last week and they launched it last Friday!
