More from Tara! If you're a BuddyPress developer or thinking of using it, you might want to check out the latest published case study on the official blog. Tara Claeys built the Total Wellness Challenge website using BuddyPress, and the post goes into how she built social and reward elements into her client's website, which have been running for over a year now.

Justin Sainton explains in this case study how to power BuddyPress with WebDevStudios‘ Algolia search-as-a-service engine. He shares a bootstrap file, walks through several code snippets, and offers a video at the end.

I enjoyed this guest post by Arjun Bhattarai on the BuddyPress blog. Arjun is the founder and developer of StudentsNepal.com — the first and largest community website for students in Nepal with 9,700 registered members and 50,000 subscribers. It was built with WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress.
Renato Alves shared on Twitter that the BuddyPress team has added basic support for the Groups component to the BuddyPress GraphQL schema, which is available on GitHub. Now it has “all the goodies” you need “to get groups, or a group, delete/update/create, pagination, and permissions.”
There’s a interesting proposal on the table for style modules in BuddyPress. I certainly hope it takes off, since I think this will lead to more people having access to more customization ability in their BuddyPress sites.
