“The plugin was created by BuddyPress contributing developer Ray Hoh for the CUNY Academic Commons. It’s part of a suite of plugins recommended by the Commons In A Box (CBOX) free software project. The university uses the plugin to ensure that anyone signing up to the Academic Commons will have a CUNY email address. You can see it in action on the registration page.”
This plugin came about directly from our experiences in fostering communities through CBOX – when we develop, we don’t just do so for our own projects but take the time (and invest developer hours) to package that code for the wider community. Congrats to Ray Hoh for his outstanding work!
