Commons In A Box Classic is a feature-rich platform built for WordPress and BuddyPress that gives community back to the users. Many currently available social-media platforms are fraught with privacy concerns, limited feature options, and restricted customization. CBOX Classic offers a unique suite of features designed to give users of all skill levels the ability to create vibrant online communities with complete user control.
If your organization wants to create a “Commons” space where members discuss issues, collaborate on projects, and share their work, CBOX Classic may be right for you.
CBOX Classic simplifies the very complex task of setting up and maintaining a BuddyPress installation similar to the CUNY Academic Commons. It identifies the plugins you need, the ones that are recommended, and the ones that are optional. It automatically selects correct plugin versions, to ensure compatibility. And whenever an update is made to any of the included plugins, all you need to do is to check CBOX to verify that it is time to upgrade.
The CBOX Classic default theme is robust, responsive, and comes with widgets pre-installed to make customization easier. Usage of the theme is optional; CBOX can be used with other themes.
