8 Why WordPress Hundreds of sites – hundreds of admins – Easy to administer User account persistent cross network Secure Scalable Actively maintained There’s a plugin for that

9 Why BuddyPress All features we wanted built in – Profiles – Groups – Activity There’s a plugin for that

10 What tools we used (we didn’t build that) One group for our community Hashtags for conversation segmentation Rate vote like plugin for activity Modified BPML for multilingual BP-Moderation to report abuse Group Subscription BuddyStream to push to FaceBook and Twitter Group discussion inside Facebook app

11 BuddyStream BP-Moderation Rate Vote Like BPML

12 #Hashtags No formal topics set Topics come and go Community decides

13 BuddyPress groups inside Facebook Facebook Notifications Post updates Post comments Edit profile

14 How we coded it Facebook App is a theme Converted Hashtag plugin from string search to taxonomy queries Language is a meta attribute to each activity Everything needs to be translated meaning a lot of filters to WPML Most API calls asynchronous with Gearman Custom post types / Custom taxonomy

15 Facebook App separate site with custom theme / plugins Filters and actions to pretend to be BP site Cron notifications of all users that installed App Currently notifies of new posts / comment and post reply

16 User logic code Our own user class that extends WP_User – Business logic in that class – Wraps API calls to update profile – Wraps custom taxonomy logic (Yes, taxonomy on users!)

17 Hello / Bonjour Internationalize AND multilingualize – Always use __() and _e(); – __(‘hello’,‘presentation’); In plugins that generate content or use admin generated content put filters for all the content – Example settings text boxes – Example daily notifications plugin
