conceptual understanding with multisite (help please)
very frustrated here too many days/hours and I feel I’m still at step 1.
anyway, I have WP 3.1 install with multisite (all is good)
I installed buddypress 220.127.116.11 ( on site id 1) the main blog (all is good)
okay few things on what I want to do, so please correct me if any of this is wrong or bad thinking, etc.
buddypress features/functions on the main site (like the forum) only
on subsites, i would like to use buddypress plugins, etc. HOWEVER, I dont’ want another full install of buddy press, meaning…
I don’t want a “whole new install of buddypress”. I dont’ want a whole new forum section.
On the subsites, i would like the forum menu button to go to the main blog forum.
for complete example: since its almost football season… say i have this:
mainsite = big12.com
subsite = big12.com/texas
subsite = big12.com/ou
subsite = big12.com/baylor
main site has the main features (forum, groups, etc)
the subsites will send the user to the big12 forum.
I dont’ want texas site to have its own forums.
so from concept level —- can that happen?
also, i’m making a script to install many subsites. so automatically, when a new subsite is created, I don’t want to configure/setup/activate/etc. etc. any plugin or anything. I just want the sub blog to pull stuff (settings, plugins,etc) from the main blog and be done.
network activate or not? i don’t know…. many plugins are not doing this correctly… seems many plugins have this broken.???
FYI. in my script, while in the loop to create the subsites automatically, i’m good at php, where i can create or insert or edit various DB fields or tables… but learning WHAT to do has been a HUGE learning curve. hince my opening line of frustration.
thanks for any guidance and/or help
so i go to super admin, add another site
