    I need to so the same here. I want to just mimic this bar and put it somewhere else on my site – ie perhaps in the navigational area just below the header?

    In the latest BuddyPress – 1.9 – i want to hide the admin bar but keep it for WP site users (editors, admins) that aren’t BP users? Is that possible?

    Hi John,

    You ever figure out a solution for this? I’ve run into the exact same issue? The only solution i can see at the moment is to install a third party plugin – http://bp-tricks.com/featured/buddypress-shortcodes-plugin/ – but thats over 2 years old now?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Just one last question here. If you did install multi site and network activated BuddyPress then on your first child site community.site.com has all the buddypress activity – would a user signing up on the community be a user on the parent site?

    Guys, thanks you for your responses – very helpful!

    See i have a very active web site built in WP (well i will – its just being built). The Community/Forum elements (with BuddyPress and BBPress) will be an integral part of it also. When i done a few test’s on activating BuddyPress and BBPress, i found that this doubled the site queries which i’m just monitoring very closely as i’m trying to keep everything as efficient as possible. The site will be on a dedicated server with the database on a separate dedicated database server so i think we should be OK if we keep queries down as small as possible.

    Sorry @synaptic, i was aware that BuddyPress is a plugin for WordPress, it was more the approach i was questioning – ie when you’re starting off with a site, do you think that the site is going to be a community site everything focused on BuddyPress or is safe to say that you could have a large active non community site and simply append a community with BuddyPress as secondary and have the site still run efficiently. I see in some sites that the community element is on a separate sub domain site – for example see http://www.babycentre.co.uk – they community element of this is on a separate install (possibly WP multi site?) at http://community.babycentre.co.uk/. I’m sort of wondering is there any reason why they do this? Is it because its physically easier to manage? Is it because the load of a community may affect the normal running of the website? I’m just wondering what the general convention is?

    If the convention is to separate say – then why would it make sense to have a multi site install as the community BuddyPress tables are still in the same database? You get waht i mean? Actually why use multi site at all? (http://www.onextrapixel.com/2011/06/06/how-to-integrate-buddypress-with-wordpress-multi-site-seamlessly/)

    Thanks for all your help everyone! Appreciate it!
