I am almost ready to submit my scope of work to the programmers. I have been looking at a lot of mods, on both BuddyPress and WordPress.
When I look at a few sites that are using WordPress (and BuddyPress), some say that you need to register on WordPress.org. I wanted to make sure that if I install a WordPress on my server, people can register on my site and all of that information is just secured on my site and not WP.
I am guessing that all the registration information will be done on my end and WordPress will not get access to it, but I just wanted to make sure.
The other issue - are WordPress plugins compatible with BuddyPress and vice-versa? I was reading something on BuddyPress and it made it sound like BuddyPress had their own version of WordPress.
