    Hello,

    I'm looking for a Wordpress plugin, where visitors can register, and then open a service, where other vistors can see that and get in touch with them threw an internal messaging system.
    (Nothing adult/sexual content related). It's more like a hangout service, where users post a "Lets hangout at my place" and then people can get with an internal chat/mail/message system in touch with them, where they can share more infos etc.

    This post should have the possibility to show location (not exact adress), date, and maybe a picture and/or profile picture of users.

    Anybody knows about a plugin who can help me with this?

    wow...wordpress started as a blogging platform. Look at now..

    why is it must be a WordPress plugin ?

    Maybe you should drop the WordPress and look for a web developer.

    just my 2 cents

    How about buddypress? It's owned by WordPress.org

    what about a forum? such as XenForo? I think that'd suit your idea a lot more than wordpress.

    Wordpress started as a blogging platform. Now with thousands of plugins etc. it's an easy and fast way to build up websites.

    The issue with forum is, that it's public. It should not look like a thread here in BHW, but like a real ad, just for services where people can privately message the user.

    Maybe something similar to AirBnB, Couchsurfing etc. but to Hangout with people.

    I only need the plugin that provides the core and back end functionality. The rest can be chaned via design etc... . So it doesnt need to be a plugin that was made exactly for this purpose, but the intention on how to use the system should be the way.
    I was thinking about a classified plugin, however none of them provide an internal chat function.
