Change permalinks/slugs for BuddyPress

    How would I go about changing the slugs for a BP site so that I can have URLs like domain.com/community/members/ etc

    I have read about using BP on a second blog but from what I can tell you don’t use WPMU/3.0 MS on here so I’m guessing you do it differently. I had a look at doing with slugs but it just breaks the urls if i do this ‘community/members’

    I could be wrong, but I’m guessing the bp.org site is running a bleeding-edge version of BuddyPress, since it appears that URLs like /communitiy/members are using WordPress pages.

    My advice? Wait for BP 1.3.

    I doubt they are using WordPress pages. Would be a pretty odd thing to do creating a bunch of fake pages to mask the URLs for the different BP sections.

    Any updates on this? What does BP 1.3 bring to the table that would change things regarding the permalinks? Using WP Pages sounds really screwy, especially seen as BP currently doesn’t rely on this so I can’t see why it suddenly would.

    updates?

    Mainly to allow BuddyPress pages to be put into custom menus and hierarchies like you can do with regular WordPress pages or posts. The change will be invisibile unless you want to set up your site like this, then it will be easy. This site does not run BuddyPress 1.3, it’s too early for that, though I suppose it is possible the code has been backported.

    @apeatling Would you answer this /communities/ URL question once and for all please? Thanks.

    Using WP Pages sounds messy to me because then you would just end up with a bunch of blank pages that used special templates. You don’t have pages for other dynamic sections in WP like archives, searches, etc. It should be left as coded back-end, and if need be some option page if people feel the need that general people should be able to do it (personally I think it should be left back-end).

    A project I’m currently building uses the network feature of WP 3 (formally WPMU) so I have been able to set BuddyPress up on a second blog called ‘community’.

    Would love to know how you would do it if you only using one blog like BuddyPress.org is. Any updates on this?

    Hi, I’ve not been able to change /community/ into something else from the settings. I was looking for a script solution rather then a RewriteRule or other tweaks into .htaccess.

    Is this even possibile?

    This site uses a customised version of the current “trunk” code, which adds support to BuddyPress to integrate into WordPress’ pages system/menus properly.
