    Social Network: BuddyPress or Elgg?
    Trying to decide between which to use, and searching here, the posts on these were a year old. So hoping some have more current input.

    BuddyPress: How stable is it? How many active members can it handle?
    Elgg: How stable is it? How many active members can it handle?

    Both appear to have been recently updated with a new beta, so it seems both have active development going on. BuddyPress I see a drawback being that to upgrade it, I'd need to upgrade both Wordpress and the BuddyPress software, so more chances of something to go wrong. Elgg it would just be the Elgg software.

    The website would also have pages I've created myself to give the members information, I know I can do that with BuddyPress, and imagine it would be possible with Elgg.

    I have a lot of experience with Wordpress, so that's a big advantage there. But I am hoping to make the most feature rich, stable, social website possible that can handle a large number of active members. So willing to figure out Elgg if that'd be a better option? Or another option? I am looking at the free options.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Hmm.. I think Web 2.0 might have been better than blogging? Since this really isn't about blogging. But that's splitting hairs.

    Thanks, I did come across those threads, but with the posts being over a year old and both BuddyPress and Elgg having made updates since then, I considered what was being said too dated.
