Can you multi-site BuddyPress?

    I have a feeling this was doomed to failure, but I had a play with:

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

    which allows you to run one Mu installation for serving multiple domains.

    It all seems to work, but you cannot – it seems – have BuddyPress working on any site other than the main one, at least at a first, quick look.

    Is it possible to run a multi-site BuddyPress from one installation of Mu, does anyone know, please?

    Many thanks and thank you to everyone who helps to make all of this stuff work.

    I am interested in this thread. I would like to have 3 BP networks with three separate brands and three separate URLs, but them all using the same database. That is, a user signed up in site3 can see, group with, friend, email, etc a user in site 1 seamlessly.

    So site1 would be subdomain.domain1.org and typing in that URL gets you to a page where you see a a theme and branding specific to domain1.org. Site2 would be domain2.org and likewise going to that site you would see a theme and branding specific to domain2.org, and likewise for site3.

    The independent branding is important, but the ability to have cross site networking is important as well.

    On solution I thought of is the following:

    Set up BP network with users subdomain.domain1.org/domain2 and subdomain.domain1.org/domain3. Then use the Domain Mapping plugin to map domain2.org to subdomain.domain1.org/domain2 and domain3.org to subdomain.domain2.org/domain3.

    Then I would want to continue to be able to make new users like domain2.org/names and domain3.org/names.

    Or is this all possible using the Multi-domains plugin?

    I to am interested in this. Any update on this? I have buddypress working on my multi-site but it only works on the main site and then on my subdomains I just get an 404 error if you click on members for example on a subdomain – so does it setup the buddypress across the network or per site on the network? I am googling and trying things but not fully understanding what it will do in a multi-site setup on 1.2.9

    At this stage, you would need to upgrade Multisite to Multinetwork via plugin. Then via another plugin in beta, have truly separate instances of BuddyPress in each Network of the multinetwork installation, Better read this http://wpmututorials.com/news/new-features/multiple-buddypress-social-networks/
