    Title says all. I'm looking to build a community website. Actually, only a few selected people would be able to post, but everyone would be able to comment.

    I know BuddyPress is able to do it, but I want to know if anyone else has experience with other solutions and if they have, do you like it and why?

    If wrong place, sorry :/ and thanks!

    No need to double post. Simply edit your first post.

    To the OP - Buddypress is pretty good for what you're asking. Or you could just go with a forum script.

    If i remember correctly Buddypress is a social network addon to wordpress.

    From what i gathered from your post i think you are looking more towards a blog? If so please comment so we can lead you to some other CMS!

    Hey malucko,

    Yes, more post like. Not exactly a blog, but something like a collaborative site. I'm currently trying buddypress and think it will do the trick. Thanks everyone for the posts!
