Datingpro pilot review
Inevitably, you end up with a cookie-cutter installation filled with fancy modules that nobody cares about.
You've got to persist in your determination of launching something unique. Something that's focused on one or two use-cases that uphold your idea. Look for the scripts that have fast and stable core features (profiles, user-authentication, messenger, photos) and easily customisable structure. Let's see what dating CMSs are still available and which ones are worth fiddling with.
Still, the script works and has been around for years. For example, if you want to sell a useless domain on Flippa for a grand, you could just buy this script, install and sell the domain as a REAL DATING SITE. Hm, maybe if you're on tight budget and existing functionality is all you need, and you have some fix-it-yourself skills, and it's a It's Able Dating rebadged.
In mid 2000 someone got really pissed off with Able Dating guys (also Russian, by the way) and littered entire Internet with bad "reviews".
Good example of starting small and simple and consistently fighting for success.
We look at them and think "oh, that's nice, I should have that on my site".
It's more of an overview of key players in dating software industry and some insights on the idea of building a dating site with an off-the-shelf platform.
White-label, open-source, downloadable dating software is, in a way, a thing of the past.
Then think about how YOU could make them work for your idea. These Russian guys from Yoshkar-Ola have been around for as long as I can remember.
No matter what you ask the vendor they are going to convince you that their software is a perfect fit. Custom services create huge workload for developers and they always skimp on non-generic tech support. (PG stands for "Pilot Group", not "Parental Guidance").
