In this session, attendees will learn about the basic features of some of the most popular and powerful tools for making a WordPress site into a community hub: Multisite, BuddyPress, Commons-in-a-Box, and bbPress. We’ll also discuss how and whether to offer particular functionalities with one or more of these tools:

* Collecting specific user data (BuddyPress Extended Profile Fields)
* Letting users talk to one another on your site (forums, groups, private messages)
* Allowing users to create their own sub-communities on your community site (sites with Multisite, Groups with BuddyPress)
* Displaying user directories and profiles
* One-way communication with users (dashboard messages, mass emails, enabling email subscriptions to blog posts)
