BuddyPress Blog Addon

I know a lot of you have already noticed this and signed up but I never really mentioned it. When I got a lot of work done on my blog I added a plugin called “BuddyPress”.

A lot of people have signed up but from what I can tell it does not show a list of members. It was sort of confusing at first but after you register, go back to the bottom of my blog and click on your name/profile picture (in the BuddyPress box) to bring BuddyPress up. There you can post “what’s on your mind” or comment on other people’s statuses. You can also set up and edit your profile.
