Im going to be building a big project soon using BuddyPress (converting an existing site over from VBulletin) so I’ve been taking a look at what people have been building with it lately. I last did a roundup back in january 2011 of sites using BuddyPress, and there were some great examples back then so its cool to see whats been built since. Today I will be taking a look at the best and most creative ways people have been using it.

  1. Oli,

    Great article with some very good examples. Do you have any suggestions for good BuddyPress compatible themes?


  2. Awseome example of buddypress sites Oli, i have always wanted to build a buddypress community for electronic music but simply never find the time. This post has certainly given me some great design ideas though.

  3. Excellent examples and some interesting websites. Check out another Canadian bike community website

  4. Great BuddyPress examples.- I really like the Culture36- such a huge website

  5. Good article with a lot of excellence themes, you`re very creative,
