Happy Birthday BuddyPress & rtMedia Addon Updates for April 2017

Let’s imagine that you want to build a community website with WordPress- which is the first plugin that you install?

Our appreciation goes out to the BP core team and everyone who contributed to the project over the years. Check out this year’s BuddyPress Survey results and don’t forget to share your birthday wishes on Twitter!
