BuddyPress, Avoid this Wordpress Plugin if you want a fast site!
Last Update: September 22, 2020
Just a heads up. If you are using the Buddypress plugin, you should disable it immediately. This plugin is poorly optimized and will put a huge load on your actual website, which as you may or may not know, will hurt the customer experience and the rankings in Google. It is a plugin geared towards putting a "forum" on your website. If you are going to create a forum, build an actual forum. Trying to accomplish this through a plugin is never a good idea and there are long standing and highly effective "open source" forum platforms that you can leverage out there. PhpBB being one of them. So, again, if you are using this or plan on using the BuddyPress plugin, I would recommend that you refrain from doing so.
