online user groups


Start building online communities, teams or groups with member profiles, online registrations, activity streams, user groups, messaging and much more. Acquire a custom built online user group or add a members’ area to your existing WordPress website.

The Online User Group websites created by David Ashurst Design are powered by both WordPress and BuddyPress. WordPress sites are very scalable. You can have hundreds of thousands of pages on your site and your site can grow as your business or organisation grows. They are also very flexible and you can extend the functionality of your site with plugins. There are over 29 thousand WordPress plugins available which should cover any future functionality your website may require.
