BuddyPress Force Profile Photo is a BuddyPress Plugin that forces site members to upload an avatar image before they are able to use any aspect of your site, whichever page they visit they will be redirected to the upload profile image page with a message informing them of this.
Do you want to inform site members of any other site members who have been visiting their profile? Then BuddyPress Profile Visitors provides a simple way of adding a total visit count together with a drop down display of recent visitors, for some sites, it could be the perfect way of people getting to know each others.
So far we have installed our basic BuddyPress install for our Ning style social network, we have done a lot. But still the site we have created lacks features, for example there is no Chat or sharing of photo’s and video’s, it would be nice to have events, the groups are pretty basic as are the member profiles. This article attempts to show you how you can move further towards your dream social site by introducing quite a large number of plugins and giving you basic information about how to install and use them.
