BP running on a existing WP site, without it taking over the entire site?
I’ve spent about an hour now googling and reading on the buddypress site, and scouring other sites online for information about this, but i havent found anything that quite addresses my issue. I am certain this has had to be asked before, so if thats the case, can someone point me into the right direction?
I already have an established wordpress site which I have been using for releasing news information about a sport. I also have a phpbb3 forum that is on site but obviously is not synced with wordpress. It exists on a subdir on the domain.
Right now I have a menu item that brings up a page on wordpress with forum registration info and then forwards you to the site.com/forums/index.php
Ive been watching buddypress for a while, and I want to try it out and completely replace my existing forum. bbpress can handle the forum stuff within buddypress, and all the social networking bits of buddypress can take things to the next level.
My problem is when I install buddypress it pretty much takes over the entire site. (or at least I havent figured out how to not make it do so).
Id like to have my site exist as normal, and then be able to have a menu item that when clicked opens a page (or whatever else) and buddypress and all its menus can then exist within that…
So in a sense the buddypress install becomes a feature of the wordpress news site and not the entire site. Is this possible, and if so is there any documentation on it?
