Plugins Aren’t Always Best

Attempting to add a WordPress plugin to add some functionality can be a time-consuming task. All I wanted was a simple ‘like’ button for Facebook. After reviewing the number of installs (but why don’t they also list uninstalls?), the reviews, the compatibility with your version, support questions and the screenshots, I gave up and went straight to facebook. Every plugin and platform bloated this device to include the logo and header and make it take up too much space. Turns out the best thing to do was to add some script to the page, as described here. Same with Google+.

    Hi Quint, right now the plugin just itengraets WooCommerce and BuddyPress so that your social network and shop use the same database. This means users don’t have to sign up twice and things like this. Perfect when you want to have a social network with buddypress and a shop where your users can buy products. Marketplace functions are planned already and about to come with the next updates.Then every user can submit products and sell products in your shop social network. 🙂
