How To Use WP Symposium Pro

To create a social network you will use your WordPress website (so you do need to have a self-hosted WordPress website up and running).

The Core WP Symposium Pro plugin gives you profile pages, activity, friends and unlimited forums. See below for more information. The Extensions plugin gives you tons of extra features and is downloaded as a separate plugin, click here to view all the features and download options.


We maintain a release notes blog which all site administrators should read when updating the Core plugin or the Extensions plugin. We also have a blog for development builds, which you have access to if you have a licence for the Extensions plugin.
