ThemeForest’s New Buddy: BuddyPress

Wed, 10/19/2011 - 15:00 — julie

ThemeForest is now accepting BuddyPress templates. If you’ve never heard of BuddyPress it’s a social networking system built on top of the WordPress platform. It allows you to build a social network for your company, school, sports team or niche community all based on the power and flexibility of WordPress. Totally open source, BuddyPress is built to bring groups of people together allowing them to communicate and interact together right inside your WordPress theme. Here are some examples of how BuddyPress can be used:

  • A campus wide social network for your university, school or college.
  • An internal communication tool for your company.
  • A niche social network for your interest topic.
  • A focused social network for your new product.

Several ThemeForest authors have already integrated BuddyPress into their WordPress themes and have had tremendous success with sales so far. So if you’re a WordPress designer/developer and you’re looking for a reason to create and sell a BuddyPress template, check out the following:
