Buddypress 1.5 on multisite

  • Hey! I am trying to get the all brand new BP1.5 to run on my fresh Multi-site installation. I have 5 blogs and one of them is meant to become a thriving community.

    But I can;t seem to get Buddypress to run on just this one site.
    I installed the plugin, did a network activation, but it doesn;t show up on in the plugin directory on the dashboard of that one site I want to have it running on.

    Any tips?

    BuddyPress is a “network only” plugin. That means that you can only “network activate” it. But, the way BP works, you generally only show BP content on a single one of your blogs – we call that the “root blog”. By default, it is blog number 1, the main blog in your network. For this to work, just activate a BP-compatible theme (like BuddyPress Default).

    If you want your community/BP content to be on a blog other than the main blog, you’ll have to define an alternative root blog. In wp-config.php:
    `define( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 6 );`
    where you replace ’6′ with the id of your desired root blog.

    Brilliant! That worked!
    Thanx so much!

    Now I only have the problem that the grey Buddypress-bar is always showing. Even when I am on a dashboard of another site…

    @boonebgorges Im having a really weird issue with multisite and buddypress! I ve define a diferent root blog for buddypress install, and everything looks fine… but, of course there is a but!, on main site all my links goes to blank page, not the home page but all news, i ve tried to do everything like touching the htaccess, or change the permalinks even trying to eliminate the blog slug but has been imposible to make it works! any clues? Thanks!

    @seluvega Make sure that you have activated a theme other than BuddyPress Default on the main site.

    @boonebgorges: Thanks: this all helps. My very related question: can I have “activity” and “members” and “groups” pages on multiple blogs? For example, can I have groups pages here:

    example.com/groups
    my.example.com/groups
    another.example.com/groups

    I want the same groups showing on all the pages (the ones in my core BuddyPress install). It’s just a matter of allowing my users to access the BuddyPress features within each site.

    Thanks again.

    You might what to look at something like this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bowe-codes/ to help you easily post that information in multiple areas.

    Thanks, mrjarbenne. That plugin looks promising. I’ll play with it and see if it works for me.
