Configure BuddyPress

After activating BuddyPress, you will be automatically redirected to the BuddyPress Welcome Screen if this is the first time you’ve activated BuddyPress or if you’ve just upgraded BuddyPress. After taking some time to check out the new features added to the plugin, go to wp-admin menu Settings > BuddyPress > Components to begin configuring your installation.

Settings → BuddyPress → Components

Core and the Members components are activated by default with four additional components/features enabled: Extended Profiles, Account Settings, Activity Streams, and Notifications.

You can selectively disable any of the components later if you choose to do so by using the same form. Your BuddyPress installation will continue to function. However, the features of the disabled components will no longer be accessible to anyone using the site

Settings → BuddyPress → Components admin screen

Settings → BuddyPress → Pages

Pages are automatically generated for the BuddyPress components you enabled in the components settings using the default slugs based on the name of each component activated. Make sure that activated components have corresponding pages assigned to each in this panel.

Settings → BuddyPress → Pages admin screen

Settings → BuddyPress → Settings

Settings → BuddyPress → Settings admin screen
