I’m planning the setup for a wordpress site that will include a member community and a forum. Originally I wanted to use discourse for the forum, but bbpress/buddypress will allow better integration with the rest of the site (blog, comments, user accounts).
I’ve been reading about buddypress and site performance. While several factors can affect site performance (compatible and lightweight theme, caching, disabling unused features, blocking bots, etc.) it does seem like buddypress brings its own performance issues. In the site I’m planning, the number of concurrently logged in members will be low at first. But if the project is successful, the community will grow and and the number of simultaneous users will grow as well. I’ve read that it’s smart to start off with a hosting solution that can be modified/grow as the community activity grows.
I’d like to use Reclaim. Which Reclaim solution will be the best fit for this scenario?
