For example, by default the name, email id, username are a part of the Word Press user profile.
But for fields such as ‘Likes’, ‘Dislikes’, ‘Hobbies’– which are expected on a dating website, you’ll have to use a plugin to extend user profile fields.
But a piece of advice here, would be to set u free site-wide membership- to lure in members.
So, a similar website on Word Press would have to be a combination of two major plugins- a social networking plugin and a membership plugin. This list contains a breakdown of elements on a dating website and the Word Press plugins you’d need to provide each feature. To monetize your dating website, you’ll need a Word Press membership plugin.
A membership plugin restricts access to content based on a membership level. A site-wide membership restricts the entire site’s content to unsubscribed members.
Buddy Press provides a private inbox for each member, using which members can exchange private messages using the username, and avoiding the need of an email id.
The Chat plugin by WPMU DEV can be used to add a live chat functionality on your Word Press dating website, and works seamlessly with Buddy Press.
When it comes to dating, the process begins with finding the right person.
