    I guess this is sort of a wordpress mu question but it also has to do with buddypress.

    How can I set up a custom domain for one of my blogs (just like on wordpress.com)

    for example. how could i change blog1.networkdomain.com to blog1.com.

    After doing this i still need all the buddypress features to work: posts to show up in users recent posts tab of profile and comments to show up in users recent comments tab of profile and for posts to show up on the homepage. and for the blog to show up in the directory.

    Thanks ahead of time! This is import for our blog network…

    Okay, so here’s a question…

    Do you think it’s possible to use this plugin, to have both subdomains and subdirectories with WPMU and BuddyPress?

    Lets say I use this plugin to map a blog to red.mydomain.com… Can I then map other blogs to that same subdomain, but have them utilize the built in subdirectory install method of WPMU?

    So I could have…

    red.mydomain.com/bob/

    red.mydomain.com/fred/

    red.mydomain.com/murphy/

    But also have…

    blue.mydomain.com/bob/

    blue.mydomain.com/fred/

    blue.mydomain.com/murphy/

    And have them be totally different blogs with totally different content, underneath the same MU install?

    I would create a subdomain in my hosting package to accommodate for it of course, but since MU would be setup to have sub directories, and I can map each blog specifically, unless I’m going crosseyed, I see this as doable.

    I wrote this before you edited your post…

    your question doesn’t make much since… i originally used this plugin:

    http://wpmudev.org/project/Multi-Site-Manager

    but it ended up not doing what i wanted… maybe it will for you.

    Let me know, maybe rephrase the question too!

    anyway, the plugin should work but it doesn’t really keep the functionality of buddypress… for that we both need assistance… what the plugin does it esentially create an entire new site for wpmu, one that can have a seperate set of users and everything… i’ve been able to set up seperate buddypress set ups on both sites but havn’t’t been able to combine it…

    hope this helps!

    unfortunately this did not work for me, i’d also like to use one wpmu install and run multiple separate domains with buddypress on a subdomain and bbpress, using the inove theme.

    see my post on wpmu forum
