What is Commons in a Box?

Commons In A Box, funded by a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, is a WordPress plugin that helps you to set up a powerful community site in no time flat. CBOX takes the complexity out of creating a Commons site, helping organizations create a space where their members can discuss issues, collaborate on projects, and share their work

Why CUNY chose the Infinity framework to power the CBOX project

Our Infinity WordPress framework is specifically developed for large scale BuddyPress and Multisite projects. This made it the perfect fit to be the backbone of the CBOX project that requires a theme that seamlessly integrates with BuddyPress and can power large scale communities with ease.
“In the world of WordPress Themes, compatibility with BuddyPress is often absent, or an afterthought. Infinity, in contrast, was conceived and developed with BuddyPress in mind. It’s just a matter of turning on and off features to customize your BuddyPress installation how you want it. And for those who do have some WordPress theme development experience, Infinity offers unparalleled features that make advanced customization both fast and easy.
