I've been looking more into the social suites for WP the past few days.

Does anyone have experience and input on any of them? I'll try to link the major ones. Some are premium which I actually prefer. Good coding should be supported, and financial support, while no guarantee, lends itself to better support and upgrades.

I have tried to set up a site around BuddyPress at numerous occasions with no such luck. There is always something missing or going wrong. LONG time ago - without like any computer skills - I set up quite a substantial community based on SMF - Simple Machines - which worked like a charm for years. Buddypress never ever felt that easy to me and I am an avid Wordpress user!

I also tried Peepso even though not as hard core as I tried BuddyPress but to be honest I don't believe Wordpress is the way to go for a community. The latest community venture I tried in was a Wordpress front backed up with a cloud hosted IP-board. It worked like a charm but unfortunately my target group clinged on to facebook too hard.
