Formidable Registration Buddypress Integration
I just wanted to mention how important that I feel it is for Formidable to keep breaking new ground towards total integration with the WordPress family of software, specifically Buddypress/bbPress. I know there has been a lot of discussion here about this issue, and I wanted to say that I find alot of things not quite right about Buddypress user sign ups, and frankly, I think that Formidable Registration might be able to do it better.
I never get notified of new user sign ups with Buddypress, and I also think that even though WordPress registration is seriously significant, and that with Formidable one can almost build an entire social media website without Buddypress, there is certainly an inherent amount of great aspects of Buddypress. If Formidable Registration would just go the distance of integrating with Buddypress, a lot of us could really start to do some awesome things to get users into our sites, and really have strong community sites.
I will also mention that there are a bunch of social media login plugins that give users the ability to instantly join Buddypress sites from their Facebook logins (or whatever), and these work great, but I want to be able to do something with the information that people provide for creating Buddypress accounts, and that is what Formidable could offer: the ability to integrate that database connection and data provided at signup, and frankly, I don't really see how to use the info from the custom fields in the Buddypress user tables without deploying a developer to make custom queries. I can imagine if it was a Formidable form that wrote that data both to the Formidable tables, and also to the Buddypress user tables, than we could do great things with that signup data, like group users by state, or categorize users by interests, etc...
Thanks for listening, and as always I can't say enough about how this product (and its continued development) gives designers the ability to really be pseudo developers on WordPress. Amazing, thank you all!59 votes
