Spaces fills in the missing parts of BuddyBoss groups. Sometimes you want to create a following around your brand and that’s what the Spaces plugin does. There is a reason Facebook distinguishes groups from pages and I see spaces as the Pages of Buddyboss. And behind the plugin is a great team making a powerful plugin that transforms the Buddyboss platform.

Absolutely ideal platform, does something that BB Groups has been waiting for ages, create clean and easy to index places for businesses and organisations in Buddyboss that integrate and react with Multiple users. Also a great team constantly innovating the product fast. This is an awesome plugin and well worth it

Spaces Engine is a fairly new plugin, but extremely useful and feature-rich right from the start. I am impressed with the pace at which the developer adds new features. BuddyBoss is the best WordPress based communication platform for me. Spaces for BuddyBoss is for me the best addition to this platform that I have ever met. It is beautifully integrated as if we were not using a separate plugin. Great buy. Thanks to the developer.

This is a really exciting new option for serious community builders. I am looking forward to seeing where this goes! Customer communication was incredible as well. I highly recommend learning more about Spaces Engines. I encourage you to reach out to them today and I am sure that you will find what you are looking for.

Spaces Engine has everything I always needed for my BuddyBoss community and its potential is unlimited, with a trusted team behind, Spaces Engine has come in my must-use plugin for all the communities I manage

BuddyBoss is a great way to start a powerful community in your niche outside of the big data hungry players. However, it lacks an option for businesses to present themselves accordingly - until now! With Spaces Engine, you can finally provide companies with their own dedicated business pages aka Spaces, where they can showcase their team, products and services. Potential customers can also send enquiries directly to a Space via a chat. Although the WordPress plugin is still in its infancy, we are very excited about it and look forward to seeing what features the future will bring. Check out the roadmap! The support is also very responsive, helpful and fast. However, we would like to see the UI/UX better adapted to that of BuddyBoss - especially for BuddyBoss Theme 2.0.

As an early adopter of Spaces Engine, I have experienced not only the value that this plugin adds to the Buddyboss Platform, but have also experienced the enthusiasm of the team behind it. Great plugin. Steady and quick development and excellent support.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can get started in minutes. Please check this guide from our knowledge base, where we cover the first steps about setting up and using the Spaces Engine Plugin.

Of course, we do! You can create and manage your tickets from My Account Area, and our team will come back to you between 24-48 hours from Monday to Friday during regular business hours in the UK.

Also, you can send a message anytime to support@spacesengine.com with your questions.

Support will not be available during weekends or bank holidays. 

Please note: The support is limited to users of the BuddyBoss theme and the BuddyBoss Platform. (Both required)

The short answer is, NO.

We have decided to work seamlessly integrated with the BuddyBoss Theme and the BuddyBoss Platform so our customers can have the ultimate integration experience.

Lots of styling and layouts from Spaces have been matched with BuddyBoss theme 2.0 so we do not recommend to use the Spaces Engine Plugin with themes that are not BuddyBoss theme.

At this stage, all pages related to Spaces will load as web fallback inside your App.

However, we need time to review the compatibility with the BuddyBoss App and see what's the best approach to get Spaces running within the mobile app.

Very cool concept with plenty of room to grow. This finally gives BB Users the ability to create "Pages" style marketing entities within their platforms. Spaces are incredibly handy for allocating communication for a business across multiple users, or "Team Members" of the Space.

The updates in the spaces integrate flawlessly with the standard BB activity feed plug-ins, and has a solid roadmap already forming that's sure to bring about some cool integrations with 3rd party plugins.
